The Path of Prayer

There’s a path you can walk that leads to peace
A path that leads to joy
There’s a path you can walk that leads to faith
A path that leads to hope
There’s a path you can walk that leads to love
A path that leads to God

It’s the path of prayer

On the path of prayer you will find peace
You will find lasting joy
On the path of prayer you will find faith
You will find shining hope
On the path of prayer you will find love
Safe in the arms of God

    Two extraordinary books that are helping me in prayer are: The Only Necessary Thing–Living a Prayerful Life by Henri Nouwen and Praying Dangerously by Regina Sara Ryan. This prayer, A Prayer of Not Knowing sums it up…
    O God, I do not know how to pray. Because
    I do not know what it means to pray properly,
    to pray in such a way as to serve or worship, I
    must offer what I have and can do as my prayer.
    And here it is:
    Let this posture be the prayer
    Let this intention be the prayer
    Let this very not-knowing be the prayer
    Let this breath be the prayer
    Let this resistance and discomfort be the
    prayer
    Let this distraction be the prayer
    Let this drinking of tea be the prayer
    Let this eating of breakfast be the prayer
    Let this hectic schedule be the prayer
    Let this attempt at Remembrance be the prayer
    Let the steps walked in silence across the parking
    lot be the prayer
    Let the birdsong noted be the prayer
    Let this poor journal- writing be the prayer
    Let the vastness of the night sky be the prayer
    Let worrying, and then dropping the worry be the
    prayer
    Let chanting and dancing and reading be the
    prayer

    Let dressing and undressing be the prayer
    Let sleeping and rising and sleeping and rising be
    the prayer

    Let missing someone be the prayer
    Let memories and whispered calls for help for
    others be the prayer
    Let opening the door and putting on and taking off
    shoes be the prayer
    Let the keeping of simple order be the prayer
    Let the celebration of light and darkness be the
    prayer
    Let warmth and cold be the prayer
    All of it, not bad, not good, just as it
    is wondrous all of it…be the prayer
    O God, in my helplessness, from
    nowhere, with nothing let these poor
    prayers, as flowers, draw You to the
    garden from which their fragrance
    arises. Amen.—Regina Sara Ryan

    Thank you Father, for the wealth and beauty you are sharing.

      Beautiful prayer, Regina. Thanks for sharing!
      Peace!

    • DESIREE says:

      As I journey with THE HOLY TRINITY, I have come to that place where I perceive every action or decided inaction can be a prayer to HIS HIGHNESS as Regina shared.I have experienced this exact reality as I willingly rest in and submit to loving myself rather than forcing virtue to materialize.It has taken much work to heal and grow in the full richness JESUS gave all to supply! THANKS BE TO GOD!
