A Prayer For Tonight

Have you discovered Sacred Spaces?
It's a great website organized by the Jesuits in Ireland.
http://www.sacredspace.ie/

I love this site because it helps direct your prayers.... they just re-designed the website - and it's even better!  I've put a sample of what you can find on the site here, from today's (Sunday, June 24th's) daily prayer.

I have a feeling I'll be visiting this website frequently. There's something peaceful about it.


Presence
I remind myself that, as I sit here now,
God is gazing on me with love and holding me in being.
I pause for a moment and think of this.


Freedom
I will ask God's help,
to be free from my own preoccupations,
to be open to God in this time of prayer,
to come to know, love and serve God more.

Consciousness
How do I find myself today?
Where am I with God? With others?
Do I have something to be grateful for?
Then I give thanks.
Is there something I am sorry for?
Then I ask forgiveness.

The word of God
Luke 1:57-66; 80

Conversation
Jesus, You always welcomed little children when you walked on this earth. Teach me to have a childlike trust in you. To live in the knowledge that You will never abandon me.

Conclusion
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end.
