Prayer: Speaking to Spirit

Like most, I have tried to find an effective way to speak to Spirit. Sometimes Spirit is out to lunch and sometimes I have not much to say.

Do You Hear Me?


Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep . . .

God, I hope you can hear me.

I've gathered flowers and rocks and such to honor your creations.

I'm not asking for thanks, I did it willingly. Just pointing out the obvious.

I don't want anything big tonight.

I know. It's amazing, isn't it?

All I ask is to keep this feeling that everything is okay, and yes, I know that's asking too much.

Thank you for this day and for tomorrow. Make me humble and patient, most importantly, patient.

Help me realize that I may be just as frustrating to others as they are to me.

I think asking for help losing weight may be a little out of line, but I'm asking anyway. I'm panting when I clean house these days.

Thank you for your goodness. Thank you for my family and friends. Thank you that my brain still works pretty well for an older person.

Keep us safe. If I should die before I wake: It's been a rough ride at times, but worth every moment and I am grateful for this chance at life.

Also, please help me help Lucy lose weight too. She waddles these days.

Cover all of us with your grace and let us learn to love one another the way you intended. We are not doing very well at it at all.
