A Quote by John O'Donohue on blessing, soul light, beauty, inspiration, work, soul, and prayer

A Blessing
May the light of your soul guide you
May the light of your soul bless the work you do with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal to those who work with you and to those who see and receive your work.
May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration and excitement.
May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in the bland absences.
May the day never burden.
May dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

John O'Donohue

A Quote by unknown on firefighter and prayer

FIREFIGHTER'S PRAYER:
When I am called to duty, God, wherever flames may rage; Give me strength to save some life whatever be its age. Help me embrace a little child before it is too late; Or save an older person from the horror of that fate. Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout and quickly and efficiently, to put the fire out.

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.

A Quote by Micheal Teal on divinity, prayer, god, manifestation, answers, and knowledge

" We are each a living manifestation of divinity. To know ourself is to know god. So next time you pray for something do it with the knowledge that the answers lie within."
