Prayer


Dear Oscar,

I’ve been angry and dismayed at the continual injustice of it all, however I’m not going to dwell on that today. I’m sending you a powerful prayer instead. A prayer that’s a blueprint for a spiritual life that can only bring strength and calmness. The world at large seems so void of the qualities of this prayer, despite this I have no doubt that you are forging the way with forgiveness, and that in your own way you will be showing love and compassion to those around you.
Hang in there dear Oscar with all your might, and know that you are loved by so many. So many of us far and wide are here for you all the way.

“Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity.
Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face.
Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge.
Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men.
Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts.
Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive.
Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring.
Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness,
a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue,
a dew to the soil of the human heart,
an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, a gem on the diadem of wisdom,
a shining light in the firmament of thy generation, a fruit upon the tree of humility.”

You Are Not Alone

For all the times you walk in the dark alone,
For the times you screamed in pain and you lost your faith in God,
He never lost His faith on you
For the times life seems so sad and you wanted to escape from this continuous torment,He was next to you with his arms open,
He is with you even if you cannot see Him.
Life a and illusion than seems to go forever,our lessons are here difficult as the may be.Close your eyes and look He is next to your side.He will always be holding you and giving the love that lacks in your life.You are His child,you are His loved one wait with much faith and He will help you to fulfil your dreams of freedom.

The Footprints Prayer

One night I had a dream…

I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before us, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life, There was only one set of footprints.

I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, You would walk with me all the way; But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, There is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why in times when I needed you the most, you should leave me.

The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child. I love you, and I would never, never leave you during your times of trial and suffering. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.

This is my favourite prayer. I am sending this to you with my own prayer for your peace and strength.
