A Prayer To Give Aid

Posted May 15, 2005, 10:19 PM | Ideas For Life | Comments (3)

May I become at all times, both now and forever

A protector for those without protection

A guide for those who have lost their way

A ship for those with oceans to cross

A bridge for those with rivers to cross

A sanctuary for those in danger

A lamp for those without light

A place of refuge for those who lack shelter

And a servant to all in need


This is a great description of charity, and remember, charity is "the pure love of Christ". We are told, in the end it will be well for us if we are found to be filled with it.

I just read this prayer for aid and I was amazed, I am the aid to my family, friends and neighbors. I didn't realize it was part of something spiritual. I was just complaining about the fact that everyone looks to me for everything, whether to cure it, find it, adjust it, solve it, correct it, whatever. Well, I am worn out, tired and left feeling used up. I cannot seem to move forward in my own life. I feel overwhelmed with the responsibilities of aging parents, worrying about paying my daughter's tuition, feeling guilty about kicking my son and my husband out of the house and my life. And wondering if I am to old to go back to school and if I did can I afford to with everything else going on.

I don't even know maybe I am making a big deal over nothing but I do know all I can think about is HOW CAN I ESCAPE FROM THIS SITUATION AND PEOPLE. I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW I GOT HERE!

WOW! This felt GOOD. Thanks
