Verse & Voice is a favorite ‘go-to’ site of mine for words of inspiration (verse) and quotes to inspire action (voice) and, the daily post concludes with a prayer. Here is a sample, and I have added a blessing to finish today’s post. ~dan
A verse from Isaiah
The effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.
The voice of C.S. Lewis and a prayer
The rule for us all is perfectly simple. Do not waste time bothering whether you ‘love’ your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him [or her].” —C.S. Lewis
Lord, you have shown us what love looks like. Help us through acts of forgiveness and reconciliation to so love one another that our neighbors know we are your disciples and know that to be good news. Amen. —from Common Prayer
May you find the practices
that offer you a doorway
into the heart of God.
Jan L. Richardson in her book In the Sanctuary of Women
