Personal growth, faith, prayer, contemplation, love, oneness,

Today and evermore

 

We know that you are love,
Lord God,

And those
Who live in love

Will live in you, 
And you in them

Today,
And evermore. 

So, may we live 
In ceaseless love 

For you, and all the world, 
Lord God,

With thanks, with joy, 
With constant prayer,

Today,
And evermore.

Father,
Thank you for being with me all the time,
And for hearing my prayers –
Though they are often so sleepy,
Tangled and repetitive.

Please help me
To reach out to you ceaselessly,
Day and night.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
