Prayer for Thursday

The Hindu celebration of Krishna Jayanti continues today.

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.
Be the living expression of God’s kindness:
kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
~ Mother Teresa

I do not ask for fame, for a high position in society, for a palace in which to live.
I do not ask for the company of clever and witty people.
Such ambitions mean nothing to me.
I desire only you, Lord of life.
Your love makes my heart melt like butter.
Your grace gives a taste like honey on my tongue.
Your goodness is as soft as silk upon my skin.
Your beauty makes my eyes sparkle with joy.
I want nothing but you.

(Tamil Prayer by Manikka Vasahar, 8th century Southern India)
