O Heavenly Father
in these few minutes of quiet stillness,
I place myself and all my problems humbly before You
for your guidance and blessing.
Help me to empty my mind of all earthly thoughts
so that in this stillness
I may be conscious only of Your Heavenly Presence near me.
Let the warm glow of Your wonderful Healing Power come into me
lifting all pain and distress from body and mind,
enriching me with new life and energy
and giving me inner peace and calm serenity.
Whatever my duties now or in the future
I shall always turn to You for guidance and inspiration,
knowing that Your light will be shining on my path
to help me walk through the darkness of this world
in the way You would have me walk – with my hand in Yours.
O Heavenly Father,
bless me with renewed courage, strength and understanding
that I may faithfully serve You and do Your Will in all things.
Through the meditation of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen
