Angels and Friends

 

Angels are here beside us on earth - as well as in heaven above.

You can tell them by their compassion and help, by their unconditional love.

An angel can be a friend you have, or someone you don't even know;

They come to us when we need them most and never just turn and go.

 

We all have many angels; God sends them by the score

And if we need another hand, he sends a dozen more.

They give Comfort when we're lonely and when we're filled with fear;

Give Hope for us to smile when we'd only shed a tear.

 

Guidance helps us choose a path when we're lost along the way;

Protection is always with us through every night and day.

Beauty helps us count our blessings; to look around and see

The wonders of the sky and earth; the beauty of a tree.

 

So when your heart is heavy and you think it will not mend,

Don't be surprised when an angel comes and you know you have a friend.

Indian Prayer

 

Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds,

Whose breath gives life to the world - hear me,

I come to you as one of your many children,

I am small and weak.

I need your strength and your wisdom,

May I walk in beauty.

 

May my eyes behold the Red and Purple sunset,

My hand respect the things you have made,

And my ears ever sharp to your voice.

Make me wise so that I may know the things

you have taught your children,

The lessons you have written on every leaf and rock.

 

Make me strong.

Not to be superior to my brother, but to fight

my greatest enemy myself.

Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes,

So that when life fades as the fading sunset,

My spirit will come to you without shame.

 

The above prayer was translated into English by Chief Yellow Lark of the Sioux Tribe 1887.

Praying in Faith

 

The Saints of old were dedicated.

They served God both day and night.

For the promise, they patiently waited

Until the Messiah came to give them light.

 

All men had walked in darkness,

Because of the fall of man.

The Father, above, looked down in love.

He saw souls perishing and had a plan.

 

In the fullness of time, He sent His Son;

The greatest gift we could ever receive.

He laid down his life to take away sin and strife.

All we have to do is accept Him and believe.

 

We pray, as Jesus dwells within our hearts;

Knowing He will come again, one day.

He sees faith in our lives and hears every plea.

We must trust and obey as, to the Lord, we pray.

To Love Another

 

I love you my brother, whoever you are,  

Whether you worship in your church, 

kneel in your temple, or pray in your mosque. 

 

You and I are all children of one faith, 

For the diverse paths of religion are fingers 

of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, 

a hand extended to all, eager to receive all.

 

Kahlil  Gibran, 1881- 1931
