Jesus said to his disciples...
" Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give it to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.

You heard me tell you, 'I am going away and I
will come back to you.' If you loved me, you
would rejoice that I am going to the Father;
for the Father is greater than I. And now I
have told you this before it happens, so that
when it happens, you may believe."

John 14: 27-29
The Holy Bible

It is such a folly to pass one's time fretting,
instead of resting quietly on the heart of Jesus.

St. Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897)
French Nun and Doctor of the Church;
also known as "The Little Flower of Jesus"


___________



The Lord also will be a stronghold
for the oppressed,
A stronghold in times of trouble;
And those who know Your name will
put their trust in You,
For You, O Lord, have not forsaken
those who seek You.


Psalm 9: 9-10
The Gideon Bible



O Allah, verily I beseech Thee in Thy name:
O Allah,
O Most Merciful,
O Most Compassionate,
O Most Generous,
O Self-Subsisting,
O Greatest,
O Eternal,
O All-Knowing,
O Forbearing,
O Wise.
Praise be to Thee, there is no god but Thee,
The Granter of all Succor,
Protect us from the Fire, O Lord.

Muslim Prayer

_________


Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows,
but only empties today of its strength.

Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
British Reformed Baptist preacher



Develop the mind of equilibrium.
You will always be getting praise and blame,
but do not let either affect the poise of the mind:
follow the calmness, the absence of pride.

Sutta Nipata
Buddhist scripture

______________


With your soothing fingers,
wipe away the lines that worries have etched on our faces.
Surround us with calm,
let us rest in the glow of peace,
as if we were encircled with the Moon's own light.
Let our concerns and tensions drain away from us,
pouring as water into your Earth.

From "A Book of Pagan Prayer"
2002 Ceisiwr Serith


_____________


Each time a swarm of worries invades your mind,
refuse to be affected; wait calmly while seeking
the remedy. Spray the worries with the powerful
chemical of your peace.

Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
Indian guru


 

And now, the Last Word:


Nothing is too great and nothing is too small
to commit into the hands of the Lord.
