    Dana Taylor, Author of Ever-Flowing Streams: Tapping into Healing Energy


    • Meditation. In meditation we make time to listen to God.
    • Spiritual quotes are a powerful form of prayer.
      Meditating on a short quote can take us into an experience of Presence, and encourage us to listen to God rather than fill the space with our own talking.

    ***************

    Sometimes it can help to pray using someone else's words. It can remind you that you are not alone in the problem you experience and the solution you seek.

    It also reminds you that someone somewhere is praying for all God's children, and that includes you.

    I hope these inspirational prayers bless you.

    Please pray for me too :-)

    God blesses you and guides you.

    With the Love we are,

    Katherine
