This morning, the spirit moved me to pray with someone (One of My Angels). I was very nervous to do so, because I always seem to be so nervous at public or personal speaking. Writing is definitely an easier medium to use. I wanted to pray with her in person (or rather, via phone, because she is in transit), but I was too afraid to call her and ask to say a quick prayer with her.
So, I closed my eyes and prayed, typing out the words as I felt them. My intent was to just send a quick email. Problem solved, mission accomplished, and I didn’t have to leave my own personal comfort zone.
However…as I finished the prayer, and went to click send, the very person about to receive my prayer email, called me! Evidently, God had other plans for me and wanted me to face that inner challenge…to face the real reason of why I was afraid to pray it with her in person. Together, we prayed over the phone. I hope my nervous words carried their heartfelt intent through the lines of communication. 🙂
In that spirit, I prayed the prayer again with YOU in mind. All of you who are reading my blog, or are supporting my life decisions, molding my future and nurturing my soul. Thank you for being who you are in my life. I am praying that God send Angels to each of you for guidance and love and encouragement and hope. I would like to share my prayer (i.e. Spiritual wishes from a Baptist Monk) with YOU also…
Dear Heavenly Father,
May Your light shine from within deep in our souls;
from the place You reside within our earthly bodies.
May it spring forth hope along our journeys and struggles
and mold our human tendencies and capabilities;
May it be seen by others so that we may be an example
of Your beautiful grace and unconditional love;
and share the message of being good help to all in need
just as did Jesus. AMEN.
