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

Flood My Soul Jesus

Dear Jesus, help us to spread

your fragrance everywhere we go.

Flood our souls with your spirit and life.

Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly

that our lives may only be a radiance of yours.

Shine through us and be so in us that every soul

we come in contact with may

feel your presence in our soul.

Let them look up and see

no longer us, but only Jesus.

Stay with us and then we shall begin

to shine as you shine,

so to shine as to be light to others.

The light, O Jesus, will be all from you.

None of it will be ours.

It will be you shining on others through us.

Let us thus praise you in the way

you love best by shining on those around us.

Let us preach you without preaching,

not by words, but by our example;

by the catching force,

the sympathetic influence of what we do,

the evident fullness of the love

our hearts bear to you.

Amen.

 

St. Mother Teresa

Remembering Jesus at Christmas Time

Dear God,

During this time of light and festivities,

help me to stay within the true Spirit of Christmas.

Birth the love of Christ into my heart,

that I may welcome Jesus fully into my life.

As you surrounded Jesus with angels,

and those ready to guide and protect him,

I ask you this holiday season to surround me.

Fill me with love and compassion

so I may remember always,

the poor, the outcasts, the lonely, the sick

and all those in need of Jesus’ healing love.

Open my heart to all that is good,

helping me always to walk in Christ’s light and love.

Amen.

 

Dr. Lisa Love

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done in earth,

as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those

who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and the glory,

forever and ever.

Amen.

 

Matthew 6:9-13 – Jesus

Beatitudes of Jesus

Blessed are the poor in spirit:

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn:

for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek:

for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:

for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful:

for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart:

for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peace-makers:

for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake:

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 

Jesus
