A Little Paryer

I found a beautiful prayer in some literature I received from The Monastery of Mount Carmel-The Society of the Little Flower. What a beautiful way to start the day:


Lord Jesus,

help me to blossom

as the kind of flower you have made me

and where you have planted me.


And isn’t it true…we must be what God wants us to be.

If we’re meant to be a daisy and try to be a rose we will not be our best as a rose. 

And then too we must do it in the place God has designated us to be.

And lastly, we must bloom, bloom, bloom! God wants us to!

    Can your soul become any more precisous? I think not!!! I loved it. God Bless, SR

    • Hi SR,
      Thanks for your comment. I think that prayer sums it all up on what God wants of us.
      Blessings, Dottee
