A Daily Prayer

A small group at my church is reading: Open the Door: A Journey to the True Self

Now, I have a copy of the book and I am enjoying it very much. This is one of my favorite prayers from the book that I would like to share with you.

Trusted and Wise Companion,
remind me often that you accompany me.
You are near as I walk through each part
of the great circle I call my life.
You guide me lovingly as I go on my way,
as I seek the treasure hidden within my depths.
Strengthen and renew my hope daily.
I open the door of my heart to you.
I open the door.

~ Joyce Rupp

Open the Door: A Journey to the True Self

Deep Gratitude

I was searching for prayer books and journals and I stumbled across this shop on Cafe Press. The owner of Deep Gratitude writes:

"As I struggled with my own life with my mistakes and regrets, I learned that I had always tried my best at the time. My best might not have been as good as it is now and I learned that I owed myself gratitude, deep gratitude, for trying my best at the time."

The saying on the journal resonates with me and my own life experiences. You can view the saying and entire selection here.

I have been given so much and I am blessed and grateful for it all!

Music Has Been Added...

I am happy to announce that I have added music to the Janie Out of Debt Prayer Requests blog. The songs I have added to my playlist are:
  • Blessed Be Your Name- Tree63
  • I Will Rise- Chris Tomlin
  • While I Am Waiting- John Waller
  • There Will Be A Day- Jeremy Camp

These are the four songs that I listen to over and over again when I am struggling or in pain. They always lift me up and give me strength. I hope these songs will also give you the strength and peace that they give me.

If you would rather have no sound while looking at this blog there is a pause button on my playlist at the bottom of the page.
