Hear And Answer My Prayer O Lord

In the dry desert of our penances, we seek the cooling waters of your forgiveness O Lord. Bring us to that place where exists no guilt, no fear, that we may live more freely and be kinder to ourselves.

I ask that you school my heart in the further ways of mercy; rekindle the flame of joy that once burned constant in my soul from the day it was set alight by Thee. It is the flame of my faith.

Bring beauty and love to all men, so in looking upon my neighbor I will see the reflection of Thy handiwork, and be so humbled in such a presence that I cannot but offer my care and concern.

Lastly I ask that you n'er pursuade my heart to follow any direction but that which finds me warming at Thy Hand upon mine.

Amen. csr

A beautiful prayer. Wouldn't it be a wonderful world if we all felt this way about God, or whomever we believe in, and His/Her ability to create miracles?  I trust that God hears you.

What a beautiful entry.  Thank you so much for inviting me to your journal.  I pray the same things Cathy.  I will be back to read more of what you have written.  You are a very kind and loving person.  To have ever even reached out to me, a perfect stanger and offer such words of encouragemnt and kindness, that shows what a beautiful heart you have.  I have no doubt that you truly love the Lord.
God bless you my new friend.

There is nothing as freeing and as healing as the forgiveness one finds in Christ.  Nothing that can teach us, lead us, and change us like the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  A beautiful prayer Cathy!  -  Barbara
