Sometimes you pick up a book and it’s just a match made in heaven.
“O Divine Love, as you stand outside the closed doors of human hearts and knock, grant me the grace to throw open all the doors of my heart. Tonight let me draw back every bolt and bar that until now has robbed my life of air and light and love.
Open my ears, O God, so that I can hear your voice calling me to attempt great things. Too often when you have spoken to me I have been deaf to your appeals; but now give me the courage to answer, Here I am; send me. Help me to hear when any of my human brothers and sisters, your children, call out in need. Help me to hear your voice in their cry.” from Fourteenth Day evening of A Diary of Private Prayer
“Help me to take a stand today – for whatever is pure, true, just and good…for the redemption of daily business from the blight of self-seeking; for the rights of the weak and the oppressed;
Today, dear Lord – help me put what is right before my own interest; help me put others above myself; help me not to forget matters of the spirit, by being too consumed with matters of the body…help me put you above all else.” from Fourteenth Day morning
Isn’t that beautiful? Those quotes above are just a short portion of each day’s prayer. There is a prayer for each morning and each evening for 31 days. So you could really start this book any time.
I pray in my own words daily, but as an introvert who often feels like I don’t have the words to say, I love reading prayers that truly resonate with my heart and what I want to pray but often don’t think of. These prayers are so heartfelt and I love the way they are worded.
If you need a boost in your prayer life, I encourage you to take a look at this devotional classic!
