The Prayer that I Forgot

Like The Flowing River

By: Paulo Coelho

Lord, protect our decisions, because making decisions is a way of praying. Give us the courage, after our doubts, to b able to chose between one road & another. May our YES always be a YES, and our NO always be a NO. Once we’ve chosen our road, may we never look back nor allow our soul to b eaten away by remorse. And in order for this to b possible…

Lord, protect our actions, because action is a way of praying. May our daily bread b the result of the very best that we carry within us. May we, through work & action, share a little of the ♥ we receive. And in order for this to be possible…

Lord, protect our dreams, because to dream is a way of praying. Make sure that, regardless of our age/circumstances, we’re capable of keeping alight in our heart the sacred flame of hope and perseverance. And in order for this to be possible…

Lord, give us enthusiasm, because enthusiasm is a way of praying. It’s what binds us to the heaven & to earth, to grown ups & to children; it’s what tells us that our desires r important & deserve our best efforts. It’s enthusiasm that reaffirms to us that everything is possible, as long as we r totally committed to what we r doing. And in order for this to be possible…

Lord, protect us, because life is the only way we have of making manifest Your miracle. May the earth continue to transform seeds into wheat, may we continue to transmute wheat into bread. And this is only possible if we have ♥; therefore, don’t leave us in solitude. Always give us Your company, and the company of men and women who have doubts, who act and dream and feel enthusiasm, and who live each day as if it were totally dedicated to Your glory. Amen..
