A Prayer for Friday (or any day!)

Teresa of Avila is one of my favorite saints. Over the years many things she said in her writings have resonated deep in my heart, this quote especially:

“Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing affright you.

All things are passing. God alone remains.” 

Saint Teresa of Avila

This week I found another spiritual nugget of hers tucked away in an old journal – a meaningful prayer for this Friday, or any day of the week!

“May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.”  Saint Teresa of Avila

grace, peace & Friday Prayers
