Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing inspiration, quotes and religious resources. This Home Page is changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You are warmly
invited to read every quote posted for each theme, or simply to read those that interest you. They are
offered in the belief that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and that finding the commonality
in religions is more important than pointing up the differences. Religion is precious gift that blesses the
individual and uplifts the community. However you worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. Let
us meet regularly and build a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.





As my head rests on my pillow
Let my soul rest on your mercy.

As my limbs relax on my mattress,
Let my soul relax in your peace.

As my body finds warmth beneath the blankets,
Let my soul find warmth in your love.

As my mind is filled with dreams,
Let my soul be filled with visions of heaven.

Johann Freylinghausen (1670-1739)
German Lutheran pastor and hymnodist

Night is drawing nigh.
For all that has been --
Thanks!
For all that shall be--
Yes!

Dag Hammarskjold (1905-1961)
Swedish diplomat, Mystic Christian,
Second Secretary-General of the United Nations





If I have wounded any soul today,
If I have caused one foot to go astray,
If I have walked in my own willful way,
Dear Lord, forgive!

If I have uttered idle words or vain,
If I have turned aside from want or pain,
Lest I offend some other thru' the strain,
Dear Lord, forgive!

If I have been perverse, or hard or cold,
If I have longed for shelter in Thy fold
When Thou hast given me some fort to hold,
Dear Lord, forgive!

Forgive the sins I have confessed to Thee;
Forgive the secret sins I do not see;
O guide me, love me, and my keeper be,
Amen.

"An Evening Prayer,"
Hymn by C. M. Battersby & Chas. H. Gabriel
1911



Now I will sleep beneath your feet, beneath your hands,
O lord of the mountains and valleys,
O lord of the trees, O lord of the creeping vines.
Again tomorrow there will be day,
again tomorrow there will be light.
I know not where I will be.

Who is my mother? Who is my father?
Only you, O God.
You watch me, guard me, on every path,
through every darkness,
and before each obstacle that you might hide
or take away, O God, my lord,
O lord of the mountains and valleys.

Kekchi Mayan prayer
Mayans originally from Guatemala,
who immigrated to Belize in the late 1800's

 


And now, the Last Word:

Have courage for the great sorrows of life
and patience for the small ones. And when
you have finished your daily task, go to
sleep in peace. God is awake.


Victor Hugo (1802-1885)
French poet, playwright, statesman
