The quieter you become,
the more you can hear.
~ Ram Dass
When for a purpose
I had prayed and prayed and prayed
Until my words seemed worn and bare
With arduous use,
And I had knocked and asked and knocked
and asked again, And all my fervor
and persistence brought no hope,
I paused to give my weary brain a rest
And ceased my anxious human cry.
In that still moment,
After self had tried and failed,
There came a glorious vision of God’s power,
And, lo, my prayer was answered in that hour.
This Week’s Affirmation:
“I release resentment and let it go. The past has no power over me.”
