Therefore We Do Not Lose Heart

Therefore we do not lose heart.

Though outwardly we are wasting away,

yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

For our light and momentary troubles

are achieving for us an eternal glory

that far outweighs them all.

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,

but on what is unseen.

For what is seen is temporary,

but what is unseen is eternal.

 

2 Corinthians 4:16 - 18, NIV

Prayer of Jabez – Prayer for Increase

"And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,

'Oh, that You would bless me indeed,

and enlarge my territory,

that Your hand would be with me,

and that You would keep me from evil,

that I may not cause pain.'

So God granted him what he requested."

 

1 Chronicles 4:9-10

Love the Questions Themselves

 

Be patient towards all that is unresolved in your heart

and try to love the questions themselves ...

Do not strive now to uncover answers

they cannot be given to you,

because you have not be able to live them.

Take what comes in complete trust.

And as long as it is a product of your will,

of some kind of inner necessity,

accept it and do not despise it.

And the point is, to live everything.

Live the questions now.

Perhaps then, someday far in the future,

you will gradually, without even noticing it,

live your way into the answer.

 

Rainer Maria Rilke

Hear My Cry, O God

Hear my cry, O God;

listen to my prayer.

From the ends of the earth I call to you,

I call as my heart grows faint;

lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For you have been my refuge,

a strong tower against the foe

I long to dwell in your tent forever

and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

 

The Bible - Psalms 61.1-4

Glory Be to the Trinity

Glory be to the Father

and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning is now,

and ever shall be,

world without end.

Amen

Father, I Abandon Myself Into Your Hands

Father, I abandon myself into your hands;

do with me what you will.

Whatever you may do, I thank you:

I am ready for all, I accept all.

Let only your will be done in me,

and in all Your creatures -

I wish no more than this, O Lord.

Into your hands I commend my soul;

I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,

for I love you Lord,

and so need to give myself,

to surrender myself into your hands,

without reserve,

and with boundless confidence,

For you are my Father.

 

Prayer of Abandonment - Charles de Foucauld

Create in Me a Clean Heart

Create in me a pure heart, O God,

and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Do not cast me from your presence

or take your Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of salvation

and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

 

Bible - Psalm 51:10-12 - King David
