Those who never pray

They […] wouldn’t think of praying to the Lord (Psalm 14:2-4; NLT).

One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up (Luke 18:1; NLT).

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

*********************************

Lord God,
Please bless all those
Who never pray –

Those who don’t remember you,
Or think of you;

Those who don’t believe in you,
Or long for you;

Those who don’t trust in you,
Or seek you out –

Lord God,
Please bless all those
Who never pray.

Our souls

May I slowly let go

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit (Luke 23:46; KJV).

I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one – as you are in me, Father, and I am in you (John 17:21; NLT).

**************************

Lord,
May I slowly let go of
My self,
Becoming aware
Of our oneness
In deep silence.

Lord,
May I slowly relinquish
My self,
Remaining aware
Of our oneness
Day and night.

Lord,
May I slowly surrender
My self,
Fully aware
Of our oneness
In life, and in death.
