Brother Lawrence’s Prayers

Centuries ago, a little book entitled The Practice of the Presence of God, surfaced. Its author was a monk named Brother Lawrence. It is a helpful devotional book about seeking to find God’s presence in even the most mundane activities. Scattered throughout the book are several short prayers that can be prayed throughout the day.

Prayers from Brother Lawrence’s

The Practice of the Presence of God

Lord, I will never be able to do that if You don’t help me.

I can do nothing better without You. Please keep me from falling and correct the mistakes I make.

My God I am all Yours; do what You will with me

Lord, I am all Yours. God of Love, I love You with all my heart. Lord, use me according to Your will.

Lord, I love You with all my heart.

My God, since You are with me, and since, by Your will, I must occupy myself with external things, please grant me the grace to remain with You, in Your presence. Work with me, so that my work might be the very best. Receive as an offering of love both my work and all my affections.

Day Before Easter

Holy Week has long been the most important week of my annual spiritual journey. The Saturday of Holy Week–Holy Saturday–seems an appropriate time to begin this web journal. I welcome you to share in my journey. I pray that you find yourself growing in faith, hope and love. I pray that you know the power of Resurrection this Easter and for many Easters to come.

Grace and Peace
