Today's Spark filled Prayer

Thursday, November 01, 2012

I saw a friend's status that proclaimed she was stuck in a rut. As I proffered the SparkGoodie of a flame I found myself writing the following. About halfway through I realized it was a prayer that was worthy of sharing with all my Spark Friends and the Spark Community at large. May we agree with each other in this prayer today...

Ok...so I no longer attend Catholic services on a regular basis, but I am forever grateful for the foundation of faith that it laid in my life.

Consider this flame a multi-purpose flame...
...may it be used to light a candle of remembrance for your mother-in-law, my uncle, and all others who stepped to the other side of eternity during this past year on this glorious All Souls Day.
...may it be used to light a fire under each of us that we would be able to get off our butts and out of the funk that has descended upon us and allow us to be on fire for the things we need to accomplish in our lives spiritually, mentally, emotionally, relationally, professionally, and every other -ly where it is needed.
...may we use it as a flame and be sure to Pass it On. May we pass the flame of Spark, of God, and of our own energies to encourage one another to love and to good works.
...may we use it to light a fire to warm our hearts and the hearts of others as the 'colder' and 'darker' season of the year approaches.
In Jesus' Name I pray

    Oh my, and in agreement we are! My rut inspired prayer, and in His service I remain and am in awe. Our shared foundation is truly a gift. I became separated from the Church for many years and found my way back to her when I realized that it was in those basic truths that I was failing. The difficult review and admissions necessary for that first confession to get me back where I wanted to be was the most invigorating spiritual experience in my entire life, and I will never forget the overwhelming joy that came to me shortly thereafter which can only be credited to the Holy Spirit. We backslide daily, in every aspect of our life, if not focused and reaching forever forward toward the chosen goal. If that goal is Godly, it will be a brick for building. If not, it will crumble.

    For the day that we can all rise above our fears, step past our past and accept our best self as being our worthy future, so that we can join together in a common goal of friendship, respect and love. I join with you in taking the flame while my body feels beaten down and broken that there will be another day worth of praise and thanksgiving. The they all said AMEN!
