Sunday’s Quotes of the Day: Powerful Prayers

This is the day which the Lord Hath Made: We will rejoice and be glad in it. - Psalms 118:24

I thought this would make a pretty perfect Sunday’s post!  Below are a few prayers I’ve rounded up – each with its own special beauty.

 “Heavenly Father, give us serenity to accept what cannot be changed, courage to change what should be changed and wisdom to know one from the other.”  (This prayer’s author is often said to be “Unknown,” but the prayer was written by Dr. Reinhold Niebuhr, a professor of Applied Chrisianity in New York City.  It was first published in 1935 as part of a pamphlet.)

“I shall be true – for there are those that trust me.”  ~Chinese prayer

“Lord, make me an instrument of Thy Peace.  Where there is doubt, faith.  Where there is despair, hope.  Where there is darkness, light.  Where there is sadness, joy.

“O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.”  – St. Francis of Assisi

“This is the day which the Lord hath made:  Let us rejoice therein.”  – Psalms 118:24

“O God, thou hast given so much to us, give one thing more – a grateful heart.  Amen.”  – George Herbert

  1. Hello,

    I would like to have support for the following prayer. Mom (Henriette Billard) who was 97 was hospitalized against her will for distort food roads The pneumology department did not accept her. The rhumatology department refused to keep her but transferred mom to the geriatric department.

    Then a pneumonia of inhalation was discovered. Failing to treat it or to feed mom by oral route the hospital where mom was decided not to nourish her by any mean whatsoever and the hospital refused to let mom go back home until it was sure she would die.

    Mom was authorized to come back home within a hospital at home (half a bulb of scopolamine was injected to her – I was said it was for her breathing comfort…) . She died 3 days later

    Considering that every person has the right to be treated normally whatsoever their age and that there was an injustice of which mom was the victim which should repaired (Luke 18), I ask God in the name of Jesus Christ (John 14:13) to raise up mom from the deads for some extra high quality years of life because for God nothing is impossible (John 6:19, Matthew 17:20, Matthew 19:26, Mark 10:27, Luke 1:37 (if mom would have died normally I would not ask prayers so that she may be raised up from the deads now).

    Many thanks for those who accept to support me for this.prayer.

    May God bless them.

    Philippe Billard
