A Quote by Jacob Boehme on love and prayer

An Evening Prayer

*When we have finished our daily employment, and are going to rest.*

I Lift my heart to thee, O God, thou Fountain of Eternal Life, and give thee thanks through Jesus Christ thy beloved Son, our Lord and Saviour, for having protected and preserved me this day from all mischief that might have befallen me.  I commend to thy disposal my condition and employment, together with the work of my hands, and humbly repose them on thee.  So fill my soul with spirit, that neither that grand enemy the devil, nor any other evil influence or desire, may find harbour therein.  Let my mind only delight in thee in thy temple, and let thy good angel stay with me, that I may rest safely in thy power, and under thy protection.  Amen.

A Quote by Jacob Boehme on a morning prayer and prayer

A Morning Prayer

Bless me, O God, the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, thou only true God.  I thank thee through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, for thy preservation of me, and for all other benifits.  I now commend myself, both soul and body, and all that thou hast me to do in my employment or calling, into thy protection.  Be thou the beginning of my conceptions, my undertakings, and all my doings.  Work thou so in me, that I may begin all things to the glory of thy name, and accomplish them in thy love for the good and service of my neighbour.  Send thy holy angel along with me, to turn the temptations of the devil and corrupt nature away from me.  Preserve me from the malice of evil men.   Make all my enimies reconciable to me, and bring my mind into thy vineyard, that I may labour in my office and employment, and behave as thy obedient servant therein.  Bless me, and all that I am to go about and do this day, with the blessing of thy love and mercy.  Continue thy grace and love in Jesus Christ upon me, and give me a mind cheerfully to follow thy leadings and execute thine appointment.  Let thy Holy Spirit guide me in my beginning, and my progress, on to my last end, and be the willing, working, and accomplishing of all in me.  Amen.

He to whom time is the same as eternity
And eternity the same as time
Is free from  all contention

A Quote by Jacob Boehme on god, impulses, and spirit

In this light my spirit suddenly saw through all, and in and by all creatures, even in herbs and grass it knew God, who he is, and how he is, and what his will is: And suddenly in that light my will was set on by a mighty impulse, to describe the being of God.
