Small Yellow Cross

Lord, help me to live this day, quietly, easily;
to lean on your great strength, trustfully, respectfully;
to wait for the unfolding of your will, patiently, serenely;
to meet others, peacefully, joyfully;
to face tomorrow, confidently, courageously. Amen.

(By St Francis of Assisi)

Workers Blessing

Small Yellow Cross

Give me, Dear Lord, a pure heart and a wise mind,
that I may carry out my work according to your will.
Save me from all false desires,
from pride, greed, envy and anger,
and let me accept joyfully every task you set before me.

Let me seek to serve the poor
the sad and those unable to work.
Help me to discern honestly my own gifts
that I may do the things of which I am capable,
and happily and humbly leave the rest to others.

Above all, remind me constantly that I have nothing except what you give me and can do nothing except what you enable me to do. Amen.

(By Jacob Boehme)

I arise today, through
God’s strength to pilot me,
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
afar and near. Amen

Blessing Prayer:

I love you Lord Jesus; I love you with my whole heart. Forgive me my failings. Today is another great blessing from you. I want to achieve more than I did yesterday and do it better. Lord, with your help, I will.

Lord, I ask because I know you listen and answer my prayers. Strengthen my friendship with my family and friends. My selfish ways often create unintended barriers. Help me to desire less and give more.

(By Anne – Aged 13yrs)

Lord, bless me today, in the name of the Father, and of the Son. and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Lord’s Way

Small Yellow Cross

Lord, your love is strong.
I place my trust in you
for you are always with me.
Thank you for my family, my friends,
and all who have helped me
to become who I am today.
Help me to discover my own gifts
that I might use them to serve others.
Teach me your ways, Lord,
as I search each day for meaning in my life.
Bless our world with people who love others.
Give me the strength to answer you
on my life journey.

Memo From God

Postit Memo
Small yellow-grey Cross

Reference: LIFE

I am God.

Today I will be handling all of your problems. Please remember that I do not need your help.

If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFGTD (Something For God To Do) box. All situations will be resolved… but in My time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed in the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life today.

Why worry?

Why do we act as if we are alone in this life, the burden is always ours? Maybe, we need to be more willing to place our problems in the “SFGTD” box!

A problem shared is a problem halved!
