A prayer that can save the world…

by jloh

You know how things just come to you when you most need to hear it?

Here’s one that came to me a long time ago when going through some rough patches in my life and once again it reveals itself to me when I was cleaning out my study recently. A blessed reminder.

Now it’s printed out & stuck onto the notice board in my kitchen – right where I make my morning tea, so I read it first thing in the morning, while waiting for the water to boil.

Let these words flow over you, feel its truth in every fiber of your being, and, the joyful knowing that you do make a difference warm your heart.

No matter how bleak situations may be, no matter who you call your Creator, there is unlimited love, beauty & wisdom in each human soul – and a prayer like this manifest in each of us can truly save the world.

Namaste & God bless. xoxo

Mother Theresa’s Prayer

Lord, make me a channel of Thy peace, that,
Where there is hatred, I may bring love;
That where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;
That where there is discord, I may bring harmony;
That where there is error, I may bring truth;
That where there is doubt, I may bring faith;
That where there is despair, I may bring hope;
That where there are shadows, I may bring light;
That where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;
To understand than to be understood;
To love than to be loved.
For it is by forgetting self that one finds;
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven;
It is by dying that one awakes to eternal life.
