Help! Prayer can be simple, short and heartfelt. Seeking divine help.
We can not only pray for ourselves but also for those in need. A friend, a neighbour, family members, community or nation. Even strangers and enemies. Any heartfelt prayer is heard.
“When life brings you on your knees, pray.”
Every tradition as it’s prayers for healing and prayer for Intercession. For example, hymn Rudrashtakam dedicated to Hindu God, Shiva is especially recommended for healing past karma, suffering and curses.
Why aren’t some prayers answered? All prayers are answered, but sometimes the answers is No. Or No something better is coming your way. No wait, there is more karma to clear.
So what is the best prayer?
“May thy will be done. “
“God what you think is best for me, please do. “
So be it..Amen.
When life seems going out-of-control.
Try Serenity Prayer..the bedrock of Alcoholic Anonymous (AA) community since 1930s. Also if you are in a complicated or co-dependent relationship.
Some days, it is good to remember the Serenity Prayer…
Metta Prayer – Healing the Wounded Heart ❤️
Metta Prayer sometimes called Loving-kindness prayer helps in healing the wounded heart, from a by lifetime of struggles, trauma, abuse and hurts. It has its origins in he Mettā Sutta of Pali Canon, and several versions exists today based of the usage, I like prescribe simpler versions based on individual needs, incorporating elements from Shanti Mantras and Lokaksema prayer (prayer global well being)- लोकाः समस्ताः सुखिनोभवंतु or ” Let the entire world be happy.”
सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः ।
सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः ।
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु ।
मा कश्चित् दुःख भाग्भवेत् ॥
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः॥
“May all beings be free of suffering.
May all beings find peace.
May all beings be safe.
May all beings be at ease.
May all beings find love & light.
May I be free of suffering.
May I find peace.
May I be safe.
May I be at ease.
May I find love and light!”Amen
Prayer for Peace
Prayer for Peace
“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is discord, union;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
“I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”
*Often attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi (c. 1182 – 1226), but not present in his writings. It was first published in 1912, in French magazine, La Clochette
