My Fervent Prayer - A Moment With God

Source

My Prayer


Dearest Father In Heaven -

Mold me as a little child with love in pure perfection

Bless my body, keep it whole, to serve my brothers and sisters

Renew and strengthen my life-giving energy

May Thy power move through me always.


Thou art merciful and all-healing

Thy love moves within me

Shine thy light through the darkness of my ignorance

Daily I will seek to live thy word


My dreams of perfection are the bridges that

carry me into the realm of pure reflection

I release all bitterness and resentment

Returning now to divine order


Bless my restless mind...lead me to peace

Inspire my words fill my mind with lofty thoughts

Thy infinite intelligence capable of infinite expansion

Share with me this day your will

Source

Help me oh Father to obey physical, social and moral laws

With burning, joyous power I will obey wisdom's chamber

With you as my captain darkness cannot stay

Thou art the ocean, I am the wave, we are one


Submerge me in your eternal light

Permeate every particle of my being

Charity, compassion, forgiveness is my song

Thou art within me, I listen, I hear


I understand not the mystery of life

Or the challenges before me

Loss and pain invade my nights

I grieve for him, my son


He dwells with Thee, even so

A waterfall of tears

Invade my heart's ache

A longing persists...an unfinished symphony

Bless me, dear Father, that I may focus on living Thy holy word

May my roots be planted deep in Thy heart's desire

Endowed with wisdom, coated with humility

Giving birth to a whole new story

And the glory be to Thee forever.

Amen

This is a model prayer for the times we live in today. Prayer does change things and we should be relentless in our daily approach to heaven's throne on behalf of others.

Death is so final far as communication goes but I heard you say " Thor art within me I listen and I hear I understand not the mystery of life." That told me you are spiritual and look in not up for Your God. God is a spirit in you and you know that spirit has been good to and for you as you navigated your life. The spirit of your love one is not dead and can't die unless you forget. You knew and communicated with your love one's spirit and knew his spirit better then the Holy Spirit. You touch and held a body and spirit, the body is gone but rejoice in his spirit. You are blessed to miss someone, I feel your pain not all but some. I will pray for your peace of mind now.

Beautiful prayer and poem, and I teared up at the words about your son, I am so sorry again, said it lots of times over the years, but still I remember him or what you told us about him, xx

Beautiful, not over-emotional, but definitely universal. I couldn't answer the question as to whether I believe in prayer or not, because I am not sure. I do, however, pray every day. I try to communicate with God and I think he is there for me and with me.

But regardless of all that, this is just me saying to you that I love what you have written.

And for what it's worth, bless you.

Audrey, Once again you have my condolences ...my commiserations. About your poem, it is one of the most beautiful, insightful and loving prayers that I have seen on HP. I commend your heart of beauty and indomitable Faith.

Last night I wrote to you on e-mail. I also held you in my thoughts at my Centre of worship. In my two poems to you of some two and a half years ago, I mentioned Todd in Heaven. Lovingly, of course, and I still remember. Is it him?

Your poem is so beautiful! Of course the message of your sadness is also there, and I repeat that I'm sending you some garlands from my Heart. God is the Author of all Garlands, of course; indeed our infinite Source of Love and I dare say that I highly appreciate your looking in this direction. Again, I wish you more inner strength and deepest Fortitude.

In our Beloved's Heart of Beauty, Peace and Love.-Manatita

In light of the anger and cruelty that so plagues the world in these difficult times, this poem illuminates that which I think God had in mind for the human spirit. If only more could understand and embrace these loving thoughts and humility. Beautifully, written, Audrey. :-)

I am in agreement with your prayer. I often talk to God about my weaknesses and ask him to make me stronger. Even though we know our loved ones are safe in the arms of our Father above, we still grieve their absence. Prayers and hugs for your today.

Oh, Dear Audrey,

Thank you for sharing this most beautiful prayer! Prayer is so important to me in my daily life. I wake up and pray before I step out of the bed and continue to pray throughout my day. I know He hears and answers. Praying is how we stay in communication with our sweet Lord God. It is amazing to listen ...

You are precious and so is your prayer.

God bless you, sweet friend

Dear Genna

There would be a change for the better if we all believed in the power of prayer. And we certainly need a change for the better at this time. In fact I'll go as far as to say that prayer is our only hope during these very difficult times.

Thank you dear friend for your comments and for being you!

Beautiful words indeed. Words l need to keep safely in my heart . You write beautifully despite the pain you must have suffered.

Today is the date of 55 years ago ...the death of my mother. Some years like this one today hit me hard. Most years l merely think of her as l often do anyway, remembering as much a 10 year old child can possibly remember. Today was different. This year it's hard and l don't know why. I only know that reading your beautiful prayer has helped me more than l can explain. Thank you.

Thank you for this beautiful and inspiring prayer. I truly loved the whole thing, but the line that rings out in these troubled times is, "I release all bitterness and resentment." That is so difficult to do and yet, so rewarding, like a conversation with our Father in Heaven.

What a wonderful surprise to see you back on HP! I've missed you so much. I understand exactly what you mean about some years being harder than others with the loss of your dear mother. I experience the same. It just never gets easier. I wish I could give you a real hug but I'm reaching out and sending you a virtual one hoping you will feel it.

Please take care, dear friend and know that I care too.

Hugs and love,

A beautiful prayer Audrey and I do believe in the power of prayer not of ourselves but the word trusted in Jesus name and sharing it with others (at least one other) where the bible says where 2 or more are in His name there He is also. Our faith is so much stronger put in Him. God bless you.

Shared.

Yes, I've had to do a bit of 'releasing' lately myself. It's tough. My younger sister has dementia - alzheimers disease and she's at the stage now where she is argumentative and somewhat abusive. I supported her for as long as I could. Now I know I must release her along with a degree of bitterness for my own good. Other then the death of my beautiful son this has been the hardest for me. We were very close.

Thanks Peg for your support.

Dear Jackie

Thank you kindly for your comments. Faith is everything! When we trust in Him all worry and concern takes a back seat. Thank you.

Twilight Lawns

I know He listens to our prayers. He answers them as well...maybe not the way we expect nor as soon as we'd like. His time is not our time and His ways are not our ways. Thank you so much for liking my prayer.

Blessings and love to you.

Thank you so much for the poems you wrote about me 2 years ago and for being here now. You have such a beautiful, kind way of commenting. You never fail to make others feel better about themselves. A lovely gift to possess.

Peace, love and goodness to you,

What a beautiful prayer Audrey! This world needs more prayers and people who desire peace and understanding. My mother lost both of her sons (my brothers) and husband before she entered the next life. She always said that losing a child was the worst kind of pain much as she loved my dad. Blessings to you and just know that your son will be waiting for you in heaven when it is your time to join him. Sharing this! Your prayer may help others.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your poor sick pet. I will certainly be praying for you. I know first hand how powerful prayer is. Three of us along with our dog were saved from perishing in a fire last week...all because of a quick and fervent prayer! Thanks dear lady.

Peggy W

I can't even imagine a mother losing two sons (and a husband.) Bless her dear heart. She was right about the pain. Life is never quite the same after a tragedy like this.

Thank you for your sweet words of encouragement and support. It means everything to me! Thank you too for sharing.

Love,
