Book of Psalms, Charles Swindoll, The Knot Prayer, Teresa of Avila

__________________________________________

Dear Readers,

The Knot Prayer addresses all the "nots" in our lives:
do not, cannot, will not, might not and a lot of am not.
The rest of today's quotes show us the many healthy
nots of a divinely guided life. Choose your nots wisely
for a blessed, grace-filled life.

The Knot Prayer

Dear God,

Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life.

Remove the have nots, the can nots and the do nots

that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots, may nots, might nots

that may find a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,

would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.


And most of all, Dear God,

I ask that you remove from my mind,

my heart and my life all of the "am nots"

that I have allowed to hold me back,

especially the thought

that I am not good enough.


Amen.

THE HOLY "NOTS"

____________


What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
In God I will praise His word,
in God I have put my trust;
I will not fear what flesh can do to me.


Psalm 56:3-4
King James Version


____________



 Even if I go through the deepest darkness,
      I will not be afraid, Lord,
      for you are with me.
   Your shepherd's rod and staff protect me.


Psalm 23:4
Good News Translation



____________

 

We cannot change our past. 
We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have,
and that is our attitude.


Charles R. Swindoll (1934 -  )
Evangelical Christian pastor and author

____________



Let nothing disturb me
Let nothing frighten me
Let nothing take away my peace
May I wait with trust, with patience,
knowing You will provide for me
I lack for nothing in You, God.
You are my strong foundation
You are enough for me.

St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
Spanish mystic, Doctor of the Church



The Last Word:

The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want.

Psalm 23:
King James Version
