(Quote) Carol-737878 said: No matter what is taken from you, if you keep your eyes on Jesus and praise Him, He will restore it to you. You will be joyful to the exact same degree you have hurt. What you have lost will be replaced...joy for mourning...beauty for ashes... God, I don't see how it could possibly work now. I don't see how You will ever come to me again in any shape or form. But I won't limit You, so I'm going to remember this moment for the rest of my life. And if and when You restore the years that the locusts have eaten, I will tell people about it. I am committing to You to remember this agony, and if you can come up with some kind of joy to the equivalent that I hurt, You are truly a God of miracles.

Debbie, this is a beautiful prayer ! Good work from someone I suspect is a Steubie !

Prayer to the Holy Spirit


Replace the tension in us with a holy relaxation...

Replace the turbulence within us with a sacred calm...

Replace the anxiety within us with a quiet confidence...

Replace the fear within us with a strong faith...

Replace the bitterness within us with the sweetness of grace...

Replace the darkness within us with a gentle light...

Replace the coldness within us with a loving warmth...

Replace the night within us with your light...

Straighten our crookedness, fill our emptiness...

Dull the edge of our pride, sharpen the edge of our humility...

Light the fires of love, quench the flames of our lust...

Let us see ourselves as you see us

that we may see you as you have promised

and be fortunate according to your word:

"Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God (Mt. 5:8)

Saint Basil of Caesarea (ca. 330-379)

Steer the ship of my life, Lord, to your quiet harbor, where I can be safe from the storms of sin and conflict. Show me the course I should take. Renew in me the gift of discernment, so that I can see the right direction in which I should go. And give me the strength and the courage to choose the right course, even when the sea is rough and the waves are high, knowing that through enduring hardship and danger in your name we shall find comfort and peace.
