Today’s Blessing Prayer: Monday greetings and blessings to all! I hope your day has started off well! If not just remember this too shall pass. It is an early morning for me as I say good-bye to Fairfax, VA and begin my journey north to Pelham in a few moments. I am hoping that by getting an early start I can beat the traffic out of Washington and get back by noon.
A special shout out to my niece Sarah who celebrates her birthday today! Happy Birthday, Sarah and many blessings today and always. Have a great day!
My prayer of blessing today comes from something I ran across a few years ago, it is a blessing prayer that seems to be credited to both St. Thérèse of Liseaux and St. Teresa of Ávila. So, I thank them both for their words of wisdom that I use today…
Loving God I prayer for family and friends today, for all who ask me to pray for them or to remember a prayer request that they have and I pray for all who are in need of prayer today. What follows Lord, is my prayer for them - so please bless them with your presence however they may need it today. For all in need of prayer today –
“May today there be peace within you.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use the gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us. Today - Amen!”
Loving God bless family, friends and all in need today with this prayer! Have a blessed and faith filled Monday everyone! Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
