Default "Give Me Strength Lord........."

When it seems all else is falling down around us... When you feel that you just can't do it any more.. This prayer I find helps the best.. Please feel free to try.. When you feel you just can't do it any more.. and the pain, anguish and sorrow are raging on..

Give Me Strength, Lord

Lord, you are Holy above all others, and all of the strength that I need is in your hands.

I am not asking, Lord, that you take this trial away. Instead, I simply ask that Your will be done in my life. Whatever that means, that is what I want.

But I admit that it’s hard, Lord.

Sometimes I feel like I can’t go on. The pain and the fear are too much for me, and I know that I don’t have the strength on my own to get through this.

I know that I can come to you, Jesus, and that you will hear my prayer. I know that it is not your intent to bring me to this point just to leave me in the wilderness alone.


Please, Lord, give me the strength that I need to face today. I don’t have to worry about tomorrow.

If you just give me the strength that I need today that is all I need.

Keep me from sinning during this trial. Instead, help me to keep my eyes on you. You are the Holy Lord, and all of my hope rests in you.

Thank you for hearing my prayer.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.


As always I wish you peace.

those who live no more echo still within our thoughts and words,
and what they did has become woven into what we are.

I wish you peace and a level path on your journey...

Default All Of Life Is Flowingness

All Of Life Is Flowingness
And in this flowing, there is meaning and law.
I cannot lose, what is my own;
I need not seek, what is my own,
For what belongs to me, will come.
Whatever goes does not belong to me.
Only what I am has power.
I now give up all personal struggle and ambition,
Knowing that all that is rightfully mine
Will then be drawn to me.

So, I now let go,
And trust my Highest Self and the Universe,
To run my life for me
And to always show me the way.

Anon.
