"Autumn Prayer"

Loving God,
I come to you in Thanksgiving,
knowing that Your Love 
never fails.
In Faith and Love, help me to do Your will.
I am listening, Lord God.
Speak your words 
into the depth of my Soul,
that I may hear You clearly.
I offer to You this day all the facets of my Life,
whether at home, at work,
or at school-
to be patient, to be merciful,
to be generous,
and to be Holy.
Give me the Wisdom and Insight
to understand Your will for me;
and the fervor to fulfull my good intentions.
I offer my Gifts of time,
talent, and possessions, to You
and my neighbor.
Help me to reach out to others,
as You, my God,
have reached out
to me.

  1. The question we must ask when faced with trials and tribulations is not, "Why me, God?" but, "What is your lesson for me and for what are you preparing me, dear God." Your prayer guides me to that thought.

  2. Good morning, Captain Kirk. Thank you, for your willingness to leave a comment. Your words are most welcome, and require wholehearted reflection, if we are to go beyond "coping" to flourish and grow, in this life. Your question challenges us to step out of our "comfort zone", and "live" the life that is meant for us. Again, I thank you!
