Prayer for Tuesday (Ghambar Maidyozarem)

The five day Zoroastrian festival of Ghambar Maidyozarem begins today. The Mayan Rain Festival continues today.

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
~ Helen Keller

O take the broken wings, Great Spirit Father/Mother Creator,
Of all human souls and the soul of our whole world.
Help us fly on the mighty wings of Your sacred
Wisdom and Truth that is now waiting to flow directly
From Your loving heart into all those who are ready to
Receive and use it, under Your guidance and protection
And in accordance with Your will and wishes,
For the blessing and healing of our world and all worlds.
Amen

Prayer for Saturday

It is difficult to say what is impossible,
for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today
and the reality of tomorrow.
~ Robert H. Goddard

May you trust your highest power that you are exactly where you are meant to be…
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you…
May you be content knowing you are a child of God…
Let this presence settle into our bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of you…

Prayer for Friday (Ramadan begins)

The Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins today. Muslims fast and refrain from certain activities from sunup to sundown for the whole month of Ramadan.

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.
Help someone’s soul heal.
Walk out of your house like a shepherd.
~ Rumi

O Allah be pleased with my fasts, in this month, as
Thou gives credit to those who sincerely observe
fasts; and be pleased with my special night prayers,
in this month, as Thou gives credit to those who pray
sincerely in the night; direct me to be on guard and
pay attention to free myself from the lethargy of
forgetfulness; O God of the worlds overlook my
wrongdoings, and grant amnesty to me, O He who
shows sympathy to the wrongdoers.

Prayer for Thursday

Hope is like a road in the country;
there was never a road, but when many people walk on it,
the road comes into existence.
~ Lin Yutang

O Lord, in Whom is our hope, remove far from us, we pray Thee, empty hopes and presumptuous confidence. Make our hearts so right with Thy most holy and loving heart, that hoping in Thee we may do good; until that day when faith and hope shall be abolished by sight and possession, and love shall be all in all.

Prayer for Wednesday

Once you choose hope,
anything’s possible.
~ Christopher Reeve

Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Living God,
you breathe in us
on all that is inadequate and fragile,
You make living water spring even
from our hurts themselves.
And through you, the valley of tears
becomes a place of wellsprings.
So, in an inner life
with neither beginning nor end,
your continual presence
makes new freshness break through. Amen.

(Brother Roger of Taize)

Prayer for Tuesday

God puts rainbows in the clouds so that each of us
– in the dreariest and most dreaded moments –
can see a possibility of hope.
~ Maya Angelou

Glory to Thee, O my God! The first stirrings of the spring of Thy grace have appeared and clothed Thine earth with verdure. The clouds of the heaven of Thy bounty have rained their rain on this City within whose walls is imprisoned Him Whose desire is the salvation of Thy creatures. Through it the soil of this City hath been decked forth, and its trees clothed with foliage, and its inhabitants gladdened.

The hearts of Thy dear ones, however, will rejoice only at the Divine Springtime of Thy tender mercies, whereby the hearts are quickened, and the souls are renewed, and the trees of human existence bear their fruits.

The plants that have sprung forth, O my Lord, in the hearts of Thy loved ones have withered away. Send down upon them, from the clouds of Thy spirit, that which will cause the tender herbs of Thy knowledge and wisdom to grow within their breasts. Rejoice, then, their hearts with the proclamation of Thy Cause and the exaltation of Thy sovereignty.

Their eyes, O my Lord, are expectantly turned in the direction of Thy bounty, and their faces are set towards the horizon of Thy grace. Suffer them not, through Thy bounty, to be deprived of Thy grace. Potent art Thou, by Thy sovereign might, over all things. No God is there but Thee, the Almighty, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.

Prayer for Monday

Hope is putting faith to work
when doubting would be easier.
~ Author Unknown

God, make me brave for life:
oh, braver than this.
Let me straighten after pain,
as a tree straightens after the rain,
Shining and lovely again.
God, make me brave for life;
much braver than this.
As the blown grass lifts,
let me rise
From sorrow with quiet eyes,
knowing Thy way is wise.
God, make me brave, life brings
such blinding things.
Help me to keep my sight;
help me to see aright
that out of dark comes light.
