My old self couldn’t find You, Father!

A prayer at times when it’s hard to speak…

Prayers for Everybody

My old self couldn’t find You, Father!

If there is anyone who knows it

it must be You.

You called me as Your child, Father,

by now I know I would misbehave

despite all the signs and hints.

Would You forgive me, Father,

if I told You a promise

once more, again?

I’m not sure if I could endure, Father,

to see a beloved one to go astray,

I feel I wouldn’t be able to bear the pain.

I can’t imagine just wonder, Father,

how You were able to survive

to see me fail.

I’ve been praying with a closed mouth, Father,

because I feel the weight,

Now I’m trying more than ever

to bring You joy beyond the grief!

Every heart is waiting

True connections what we are all longing for…

Prayers for Everybody

Every heart is waiting

to be loved again

Every tear-drop is waiting

to be dried again

Every smile is waiting

to be seen again

Every laugh is waiting

to be heard again

Every lost one is waiting

to be found again

Everybody who suffers is waiting

to be saved again

What about You, Father?

Are you waiting to be loved again?

Are you waiting to see our smiles again?

Are you waiting to hear our laughs again?

I know, you are waiting your tears to be dried

and to feel free inside with an easy heart – at last.

My Broken Heart is Nothing Compared to Yours, Father!

A prayer when words are too heavy to speak…

Prayers for Everybody

My broken heart is nothing compared to your, Father!

Walking halfway in the Sunset Avenue of this life

Where happiness seems to be barren just like the barks of the trees

Where the light is present but can not warm that much any more

As memories are fading and the void is getting stronger

As the mind of brilliance is becoming more normal

As all the deeds are recategorized by self-doubts

And I feel the era of joy and abundant love

Will never greet me again

And the anger is growing and visible

Towards those who are acting against Your love

People, just like me

Father,

The pain is excruciating

But the numbness is death

I can feel my own pitiness

I wonder how You can still trust me

I wonder how you can still bear the pain of agony.

Your hope in us

Your hope in me

Must be…

Prayer for the ones behind walls

God as a parent never judges and always forgives…

Prayers for Everybody

Dear Father,

You never judge anyone and you have never judged me.

Only the immature judges as the unloved hates.

There are so many behind walls these days.

Even the holy places are locked down for most of the times.

These fortresses are not structures of the heart.

I know, it has always been like this, but I’ve thought and in a way expected we would all get rid of the misunderstandings, rage and enmity by now.

People in need and lack of real opportunities, to whom nobody taught a different practical standard other than their own, they are all forced to leave anything they can love behind. Sometimes for all in their lives.

What is the purpose of this, Father?

It is not just the story of Jean Valjean, when goodness can overcome fear!

I’ve opened my heart and door to anyone who comes and ask.

We are…

Prayer for the Giant on the bus who was like a mountain but his eyes tame and clear

A real life story and a regret of not doing more…

Prayers for Everybody

Father,

I’ve been meaning to tell you, how unprepared and vain I was two days ago. I was sick and barely could speak but that is never an excuse, since You chose me and you never let me down in anything I should not others, either.

There was a man on the bus to where we usually never travel. Honestly, I was unable to like him, he was fearful, big, tattooed and dressed as a biker, smoking in the stop, having a grim look and sunglasses.

I didn’t find the place in myself to open my heart unconditionally, I was even accusing him inside why he was travelling that way.

Then, in the crowded coach a young mother offered seat for me and my baby boy, as I recognized she was the only one with a specific ethnic background, yet, she had only the heart of Yours, even helping…

Everybody deserves a prayer

Dear Friends,

 

I have started a new prayer blog, Prayers for Everybody as a part of my spiritual journey.
I am going to write and share 210 public prayers for you here.

Partly, because everybody deserves a prayer and partly because I also need to grow inside, so, that is a challenge for me, too.
If you happen to have some time to read, follow and share these, it will make me more accountable and transparent in front of Heavenly Parent, you and even myself.

I do hope, these prayers and words will find you in the right time and right place.

 

Blessings!

Prayers for Everybody

Everybody deserves a prayer and Heavenly Parent is waiting for you to see whether you can hear or say a prayer.

Not because you are religious, He couldn’t care less about the institutions.

But because He would like to resonate and live with you in harmony and peace.

He would give you everything He has just to ease your days, no matter what you have been through, He is your Parent, with an absolute attitude.

The everyday life is more than overwhelming, or for way too many, numbing.

Let me pray for you and let me pray with you.

There is a whole new world under the ashes of this disoriented and cruel one where we breath.

It is not vanity to give yourself a chance to evolve and be better, more mature, more capable. Come, Pray with me!

Because everybody deserves a prayer.

I can’t make a barren sky

An honest prayer…

Prayers for Everybody

I can’t make a barren sky

just like I can’t make a blossoming meadow

I can’t create water to drink

just like I can’t create bread to eat

I can’t clean the air

just like I can’t clean the oceans

I can’t revive the broken

just like I can’t revive myself

without You

Heavenly Parent

The basis of the Christian moral life

“You see, God’s grace has been revealed, and it has made salvation possible for the whole human race ·and taught us that what we have to do is to give up everything that does not lead to God, and all our worldly ambitions; we must be self-restrained and live good and religious lives here in this present world, while we are waiting in hope for the blessing which will come with the Appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour Christ Jesus. He sacrificed himself for us in order to set us free from all wickedness and to purify a people so that it could be his very own and would have no ambition except to do good. Now this is what you are to say, whether you are giving instruction or correcting errors; you can do so with full authority, and no one is to question it.”

Titus 2:11-15
