Feeling dry and scratched, on such a day, no other prayer would do. Thank you, Nancy.
Thank you, and thanks be to God.
Dearest Nancy,I've had a little miracle happen to me after saying that little prayer above. Since the afternoon of the 21st, my spirit has been stretched and gently covered over by a Spirit of Joy. It is not a wild, exhilarating joy, but one that is quiet and serene. It has been many, many long years since I've felt this deep, secret stream of joy flow through me.And it all began with the prayer you posted. Thank you. May you always be blessed for pointing The Way.
Caitlynne Grace, this is one of the most striking and meaningful comments I have ever received. Thank you so much for letting me know this, and thanks be to God!! I could use a stream of joy myself just now, so have just said this prayer with more intensity. I think I will continue to do so... thanks to you. God be praised for His work among us!
