A Prayer at Christmastime

O God, our Help in ages past, our Hope in years to be. Teach us the meaning of Christmas and make us more like Thee.

Give us understanding enough to make us kind So we may judge all people with our hearts and not our minds.

Teach Me, Lord

Lord, show me the way I can somehow repay the blessings You've given to me...

Lord, teach me to do what You want me to do and to be what You want me to be.

A Prayer of Gratitude

Thank You, God, for the beauty around me everywhere. The gentle rain and glistening dew, the sunshine and the air. The joyous gift of feeling the soul's soft, whispering voice that speaks to me from deep within and makes my heart rejoice.

A Springtime Meditation

Give us reassurance, Lord, that You are always near
To guide us and protect us and to take away our fear.
Help us all to realize there is untold strength and power
When we seek the Lord and find Him in the meditation hour.

A Prayer for Direction

Bless me, Heavenly Father, and lead me in Your ways,
Grant me strength to serve Thee- put purpose in my days.
Teach me to be patient in everything I do,
Content to trust your wisdom and follow after you.

It's Me Again, God

Remember Me, God? I come everyday
Just to talk with You, Lord, and to learn how to pray.
You make me feel welcome, You reach our Your hand-
I need never explain, for You understand.
Dear Lord, what a comfort to know that You care
And to know when I seek You, You will always be there.
