Prayer Guide

Look at the birds in the sky: They do not sow, or reap, or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you more valuable than they are?

[Matt 6:26 NET]

Sail fast, sail fast,

Ark of my hopes, Ark of my dreams;

Sweep lordly o’er the drowned Past,

Fly glittering through the sun’s strange beams;

Sail fast, sail fast.

Breath of new buds from off some drying lea,

With news about the Future scent the sea;

My brain is beating like the heart of Haste.

I’ll loose me a bird upon this Present waste;

Go, trembling song,

And stay not long; O, stay not long;

Thou art only a gray and sober dove,

But thine eye is faith and thy wing is love.

~ Sidney Lanier ~

God speed thee, pretty bird; may thy small nest,

With little ones all in good time be blest.

I love thee much;

For well thou managest that life of thine,

Well I!—O ask not what I do with mine!

Would I were such!

~ Jane Welch Carlyle ~

My Father,

May I start this day with more faith in myself and greater love for thy world. May my soul be awakened to the highest and be ready for the joys of to-day.
