Pray for others

Let us take time to pray for others that we may be a channel through which blessings may be received. God hears our prayers and brings comfort to those here on earth. We do not know the intent or purpose of the events happening in the lives of others or in our own life either.

We can only pray that God shows us the way and gives us the courage and strength to bear our trials. To ask ourselves "what am I supposed to learn from this?" and embrace the lesson that we may grow in spirit.

To offer up in prayer our challenges for world peace and for the souls of those who have lost their way. We cannot know what is in the hearts and minds of others or all that is taking place in their lives, so instead of judging let us pray that we may be an instrument of Divine love manifested.

Reach out to others. Do not wait for them to come to you. God knows our every thought, desire, weakness, fear, strength, and intent. We can hide nothing from Him. But, in faith, we can turn towards him and He will light our darkest hours and bring joy back into our lives.

Life is like school. It is a learning process that is ongoing. We never succeed in attaining all wisdom here on earth. Be thankful for your continued growth, for each step is a step closer to God through his unconditional love.

Life is full of opportunity when we open our eyes to it and welcome the changes in our lives. Not as an ending, but as a continued beginning. Each day is a gift to be unwrapped and savored and at its closure to give gratitude for what we received.

Take time to be quiet and commune with God and realize His presence in all life, both in nature and those we meet along the way. Each day is holy for it comes from God's grace. Welcome the gift of today.
