Today’s little couplets began to arrive yesterday morning, when I kissed my icon of Jesus. To my surprise, everything I receive is still about prayer, so I’m just going with the flow.
Jesus took Peter, John, and James up on a mountain to pray (Luke 9:28; NLT).
Help me to pray with you, Jesus,
All day and all night.
Help me to pray in your Spirit,
And walk in your light.
Help me to pray to our Father,
In heaven above.
Help me to join you in Oneness,
And live in your love.
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).
They will pray day and night, continually (Isaiah 62:6; NLT).
Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests (Ephesians 6:18; NIV).
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life” (John 8:12; NLT).
Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy (Matthew 6:9; NLT).
Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us” (Genesis 1:26; NLT).
The LORD our God, the LORD is one (Deuteronomy 6:4;NIV).
Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

Yesterday I made a simple, experimental prayer circlet to wear around my neck, and to hold. It’s loose enough to be able to move from one bead to the next using only one hand. After trying it out, I plan to re-make it with a moveable cross at intervals, as I think that will be helpful when I’m praying.
