It’s difficult to talk about one’s ‘favorite’ prayer. Still, at some point we have felt the power of such a prayer/meditation. This is an attempt to share some such experiences of strength and hope, so they can help others. Post Yours

Put One Foot in Front of The Other
Let no one be deluded that a knowledge of the path can substitute for putting one foot in front of the other.
– M.C. Richards
We usually talk about the benefits of prayer and meditation and keeping good company. We may have the noblest of intentions, but just thinking about doing something is not enough. We must simply, actively take steps towards our goal — do what we are supposed to do, and do it at once.
Just do it.
There will always be challenges, so we pray for courage to remain faithful when pains and fears seem overwhelming.
- Unto those that hath shall be given …
Unto those that hath shall be given …
Unto those that hath shall be given, and they shall have abundance: but from those that hath not shall be taken away even that which they have.
– The Gospel according to Saint Matthew
This is a strange paradox, a little-known secret. Jesus isn’t speaking of worldly goods. He is speaking of a very rare kind of treasure: the more you draw on it, the more you will have. The more patient you are with people, for instance, the more patience you will have. The more generous you are today, the more generosity you will have tomorrow. The more love you give, the more loving you become.
The principle can be stated in the plainest of terms: if you are selfish with your love, the scant security you cling to will be battered by life. But if you give of yourself freely, your security will be unshakable. Your joy will be limitless. You will always have more to give.
