I had an upsetting phone call with a doctor’s office this morning, and am trying to find ways to calm myself and trust that all is well. Isn’t amazing how something comes across our path or into our perception just when we need it? That’s what just happened to me. I opened an old email by chance, and found in it the following prayer by St. Theresa. I couldn’t believe how 1) it was exactly what I needed in this moment and 2) how much calmer I felt after letting the prayer sink into my soul. I offer it to all of us who are having a busy, perhaps stressful day:
St Theresa’s Prayer
May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and everyone of us.Amen.
