“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”
― Soren Kierkegaard
In this self proclaimed year of “self,” I’ve found great comfort in prayer.
For me, the most soothing are the prayers I remember from my childhood–those prayers practiced and memorized while sitting beside my mom. Today, as I’ve done for the past sixty-something years, I began my day with the following:
Good Morning, dear Jesus, this day is for you. I ask you to bless all I think, say, and do. Amen.
Angel of God
My guardian dear
To whom God’s love
Commits me here
Ever this day
Be at my side
