En lille Bøn

(Earth Mother By Rhonda Angel)

Lead me not into temptation,
for I can find it myself !

           "I wish for you..."

           Comfort on difficult days,
           Smiles when sadness intrudes,
           Rainbows to follow the clouds,
           Laughter to kiss your lips,
           Sunsets to warm your heart
           Gentle hugs when spirits sag,
           Friendships to brighten your being,
           Beauty for your eyes to see,
           Confidence for when you doubt,
           Faith so that you can believe,
           Courage to know yourself,
           Patience to accept the truth,
           And love to complete your life.
           God Bless you!

           I asked the Lord to bless you
           As I prayed for you today
           To guide you and protect you
           As you go along your way....
           His love is always with you
           His promises are true
           No matter what the tribulation
           You know He will see us through
           So when the road you're traveling on
           Seems difficult at best
           Give your problems to the Lord
           And God will do the rest.

  Herre, gør mig til et redskab for din fred;
  Hvor der er had, lad mig bringe kærlighed,
  hvor der er krænkelse, tilgivelse,
  hvor der er splittelse, enhed,
  hvor der er tvivl, tro,
  hvor der er vildfarelse, sandhed,
  hvor der er fortvivlelse, håb,
  hvor der er bedrøvelse, glæde,
  hvor der er mørke, lys.
  Herre, hjælp at jeg
  ikke så meget søger at blive trøstet, som at trøste,
  ikke at blive forstået, som at forstå,
  ikke at blive elsket, men at elske.
  For det er ved at give, at vi modtager,
  ved at tilgive, at vi bliver tilgivet,
  og ved at dø, at vi fødes til evigt liv.
   (Skt. Frans af Assisi, 1182 - 1226)
