A prayer for today

celtic2

God,
Help me to be human.

Help me to bring out the best in everyone around me.

You have created man, so that he is capable
to consciously
appreciate all the gifts you have given him.
Lord, help me to appreciate all you have given me.

Help me to be truly human.

Amen!

One thought on “A prayer for today”

  1. Mi se pare minunata si plina de adevar aceasta ruga si cred ca reflecta menirea noastra autentica. Ce e mai frumos decat a fi uman, de a fi om adica “chip si asemanare” asa cum am fost creati?

    Cred ca daca Dumnezeu ne voia fiinte spirituale, mistice, nu ne dadea nici trup, nici libertate, nici semeni,nici lume, dar nu ne-ar fi facut nici onoarea de a ne numi “prietenii” Lui. Si mai cred ca umanitatea noastra ii e mai draga decat orice altceva caci pentru ea si-a dat Viata: ca sa ne reinvete sa fim pe deplin “anthropos”.

    Sper ca nu am suparat pe nimeni comentand si nadajduiesc ca Dumnezeu se va milostivi de noi si ne va pogora Harul Sau sa adune tot ce ne-umanul din noi a risipit!

    Slava intru Cei de Sus lui Dumnezeu, pe pamant pace si intre oameni bunavoire!
