Prayers to God

I fondly call the Source of All that Is or the Divine as God. As I journey through life, I have come to understand things as I experience the pains and joys of life.

I have come to be deeply grateful that I can connect to God through prayer and meditation. I have come to feel God’s presence when I bask in the warmth of the sun or walk barefoot on the grass. I hear the words of wisdom from other angels who walk the earth spreading the message of love, light and universal truth. When I feel down and out, God’s love reassures me in little and big ways; and I find comfort in the knowledge that I am never alone. He/She is always with me.

This is some of my collection of my Dear God notes/letters which are random prayers uttered/ written at different times. I pray that Spirit will guide and sustain you in all ways.

Blessings my dear friend.

Dear God,

Every time I wake up in the morning and I see sunlight streaming through the window, I feel a smile lighting up my heart. The yellow glow makes me feel cheerful and optimistic. That’s the high I need as I ready myself for work.

Dear God,

I remember the many times I have felt lonely and restless. It was a crazy time. I thought I would never survive those turbulent moments. Now I understand that I just needed to accept the love that you wanted to give me. I knew you loved me. How come I had such a difficult time accepting it? I guess deep down I felt I really didn’t deserve it. While you kept telling me I was worthy of your love as we all are.

Dear God,

I see a lot of miracles happening all around us. But I noticed that it is not all the time that we are changed by it. I guess a miracle is only valuable if we are thankful for its blessing and we learn something to help us be better persons.

Dear God,

Reading the Dear God notes from the kids were priceless. They were honest, real and funny. I wish I could post those photos here but they are not mine and I am not allowed to post what is not mine. Hahahaha

Dear God,

I went out into the garden to assist the game for the kids. And one of the girls, a special child, waved at me with a big smile. I waved back. Did she know who I was? This was just the second time I encountered her. I turned to look, no one was around, so it was definitely me. After their game, she ran to me and hugged me. What a beautiful feeling it was!

And every time something like this happens, I always feel that you are giving me a special hug too. I hug you back dearly.

Dear God,

It has been a long day of emotional stuff, troubleshooting at work and handling news of people close to me being ill. I wish I can just make all problems disappear with a wave of my hand. I can’t so I will curl up in bed and have a good cry.

Dear God, This is such a beautiful day. Thank you!

Dear God,

I was very quiet for a long time. I didn’t want to talk, finding solace in my solitude. I realized I am growing in spirit for I see that I now find joy in the stillness. Hmmmm...I think I didn’t want to be quiet before because I wasn’t ready to listen to your voice. I can be so stubborn at times huh? But by befriending silence, I have come to hear you clearly and the wisdom and peace that comes with it is truly a gift.

Dear God,

A lot of people have asked me why I am not married. Gosh for many years I hated this question! Can you feel what it’s like to be looked down, appraised, judged and assessed? I wished the floor would open and swallow me! But it feels so good to have dealt with this and now I no longer see it as an issue. And the funny thing is that when that happened, people also stopped making it into an issue!

Dear God,

My inner world reflects my outer world. These words I would often ponder when things go haywire or when they are going smoothly. I realized that keeping myself balance, happy, peaceful is the key to a life of happiness.

And it took me a long, long time to get this lesson! LOL But now when things do not go right, I just tell myself to stop and find that balance. Somehow things get better. That amazes me, it feels like magic!

Dear God,

I was watching a show on the television called, “Touched By An Angel.” It inspired me a lot. And I close my eyes now to thank you for all the angels in my life. You have sent them when I needed a hand, a shoulder to cry on, or words of comfort or wisdom or inspiration. I feel so loved by you.

Dear God,

I love you. Thank you for loving me.

Love,

Michelle
