A Simple Prayer February 25, 2006 12:41 AM

In times of grieving, prayers are particularly comforting...  Does anyone know a special prayer which they have found helpful?

Love, make me an instrument of your peace

Where there is hatred... let me sow love

Where there is injury... pardon.

Where there is doubt... faith.

Where there is despair... hope.

Where there is darkness... light.

Where there is sadness... joy.

Oh Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek

To be consoled... as to console,

To be understood... as to understand,

To be loved... as to love,

for

It is in giving... that we receive,

It is in pardoning... that we are pardoned,

It is in DYING... that we are born to eternal life.

                           St. Francis

Not quite a prayer - but an expression - author unknown

BEING APART FROM YOU ISN'T EASY
 
Being apart from you isn't easy...
I find myself missing you so often,
In so many ways...

But even though we can't be together right now,
Gentle thoughts of you fill my days,
And dreams of you fill my nights...

No matter what I'm doing,
I know it would be so much nicer
If I could be sharing it with you.

I keep imagining things you'd say
If you were with me now...
Or the way you would laugh
If something funny happened,

And the next thing I know,
I'm daydreaming about all the things
We'll do when we're together again.

Although the miles
Come between us now,
I still feel so close to you...

And I just keep hoping
The days will fly by,
Because I want you beside me

To talk to,
To hold,
To love.

And if I go while you are still here…

Know that I still live on

Vibrating to a different measure

Behind a thin veil you cannot see through

You will not see me, so you must have faith

I wait the time when we can soar together again

Both aware of each other

Until then live your life to the fullest.

And when you need me,

just whisper my name in your heart.

 

…………….I will be there

I'll see your face in every cloud that floats through my sky

And when the world is too much and it gets me down on my knees to pray

I'll hear your voice and you won't seem so far away.

- Rockapella

Or any other words that come directly from the heart...
