Prayer for Tuesday

We’re all just walking each other home.
~ Ram Dass

Father You have made us. Red, yellow, brown, white and black, tall and short, fat and thin, rich and poor, young and old all are Your children. Teach us to cooperate rather than to compete to respect rather than to revile to forgive rather than condemn. Your son turned from no one. May we learn, like Him, to be open to share of the divine that You have implanted in each of Your sons and daughters. And may we forge a bond of love that will make a living reality the brotherhood in which we profess to believe.

On this shrunken globe,

Prayer for Sunday (Tisha B’Av)

Today is the Jewish holiday of Tisha B’Av.

We cannot live only for ourselves.
A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.
~ Herman Melville

Gracious God,
We pray for peace in our communities this day.
We commit to you all who work for peace and an end to tensions,
And those who work to uphold law and justice.
We pray for an end to fear,
For comfort and support to those who suffer.
For calm in our streets and cities,
That people may go about their lives in safety and peace.
In your mercy, hear our prayers,
now and always. Amen

Prayer for Saturday

My goal in life is to be as good of a person
my dog already thinks I am.
~ Author Unknown

Holy Spirit when I am weak, You give me strength to carry on. You comfort me each time I seek Your loving arms to lean on.

You are the Father that I need. You have the wisdom that I lack. You give me courage to succeed, when I alone, would have turned back.

I may have crosses in my life, but I will never know despair; for when I seek you in my strife, I know so well you will be there.

Prayer for Friday

Your life may be the only Bible some people read.
~ Author Unknown

Let me be a voice for the speechless,
Those who are small and weak;
Let me speak for all helpless creatures
Who have no power to speak.
I have lifted my heart to heaven
On behalf of the least of these –
The frightened, the homeless, the hungry.
I am voicing their pleas.
If I can help any creature,
Respond to a desperate call,
I will know that my prayer has been answered
By the God Who created them all.

Prayer for Thursday

If you are not living in joy,
you are out of integrity with your soul.
~ Michael Beckwith

Beloved God,
Show me the truth about this.
I now surrender all fears, doubts, and judgments, and invite the light of perfect consciousness to illuminate my path.
Pure love is present here and now, as God lives in every person I meet.
I send love and appreciation to all my associates, knowing with perfect confidence that he or she is guided by the same Great Spirit that guides me.
I am not separate from my brothers and sisters, but one with them.
I trust that my highest good is unfolding before me, and I accept the very best that love and life have to offer.
I am worthy of living in the kingdom of Heaven, even as I walk the earth. I claim it now.
Thank you, God, for loving me infinitely, and opening all doors for the highest good of all concerned. I receive Your love, and magnify it.
And so it is.

There is much to be done, there is much that can be done…
one person of integrity can make a difference…
~ Elie Wiesel

Lord God, I beseech thee to give me the strength which endures. Grant that I may have the ceaseless content which is secured by choosing and continuing in the right way. From the wealth of each day renew my hope, and quiet my soul with the calm of thy peace. Amen.
