a-child's-prayer

Every time I sing this lullaby I think of my sister singing it to me. She used to hold me in my bed and sing to me until I fell asleep. She used to have me sing with her as she played it on our broken down piano, teaching me how to use my voice. It’s a simple prayer, but it brings peace to my heart.

Heavenly Father, are you really there? And do you hear and answer every child’s prayer?
Some say that Heaven is far away,
But I feel it close around me as I pray.
…..
Father, in prayer I’m coming now to Thee.

Pray, He is there
Speak, He is listening
You are His child,
His love now surrounds you.
He hears your prayer,
He loves the children.

A Child's Bedtime Prayer

2 de Noviembre de 2012

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray to God my soul to take.
If I should live for other days,
I pray the Lord to guide my ways.

Father, unto thee I pray,
Thou hast guarded me all day;
Safe I am while in thy sight,
Safely let me sleep tonight.
Bless my friends, the whole world bless;
Help me to learn helpfulness;
Keep me every in thy sight;
So to all I say good night.

Prayer Wheels, Tibet 2014 by © Jan Reurink
Via Flickr:
Apart from hand prayer wheels there exist large size fixed prayer wheels which are often aligned around Buddhist shrines and are set in motion by pilgrims who circum-ambulate the building in a clockwise direction. Prayer wheels larger than human size are to be seen in separate rooms in Tibetan Buddhist temples and can also be set in motion by pilgrims. With the help of a small bell the number of revolutions can be counted. The cylinders of fixed prayer wheels are often inscribed with the formula “Om mani padme hum” (meaning “jewel in the lotus”) in ornamental Lantsa (Ranjana) letters. Prayer wheels (perhaps more appropriately called “prayer mills”) which are set in motion by wind or water power are also known. They are used for prayer of Tibetan festival. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tibetan_prayer_wheel

Prayer for families

God of Love,

By the intercession of Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys,
Who contributed so greatly to the human and
Christian well-being of families in the New World,
watch over our homes today.

Give to all children the daily bread and love they need,
Help adolescents discover meaning in their lives,
Help couples grow in love and fidelity.
Guide parents in the education of their children.
Fill the hearts of grandparents with peace
and tenderness toward their grandchildren.
Come to the help of those whose happiness is threatened.

Inspire and enlighten all those committed,
like Saint Marguerite, to the well-being
and happiness of families.

Help us discover in the Holy Family of Nazareth
a real model of family life in the spirit of the Gospel.

Amen.

Our Father Who's no longer allowed in heaven Hallowed by thy name Thy fandom come We're all so done With nothing as it is in context Give us our dose of daily memes And forgive us for shipping As we forgive those who created Mattstoph Lead us not into gaylawyer hell And deliver us from narumitsu SNIRT.

Alas young child of mine, sweet soul that suffers not the bearing of the weighted cross of hetero ships, the sins that we have committed here today cannot even be assuaged by the most passionate of pleas for our very souls. Join me now in prayer child, for perhaps one day we can be forgiven for the unholy union that is Matt Engarde and Kristoph Gavin. I shall deliver us from purgatory and launch us into the light as we forever argue that Miles Edgeworth is anything but heterosexual.

Dead at Eleven

“We are losing him, doctor!”

Imagine you are laying on the operation table and hear those words from a nurse. Would you be afraid? Now, imagine you are only eleven and hear those words, or have a child that is eleven who later tells you that they heard those words. Does your heart beat a little faster, thinking about such a scenario?

That is exactly what happened to me when I was eleven. I had…
