My heavenly father, I thank You through Jesus Christ, Your beloved Son, that You kept me safe from all evil and danger last night. Save me, I pray, today as well from every evil and sin, so that all I do and the way that I live will please you. I put myself in your care, body and soul and all that I have. Let your holy angels be with me, so that the evil enemy will not gain power over me. Amen.
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. (The Buddha)
Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp, because dawn has come.
Depth of friendship does not depend on length of acquaintance.
I am convinced that when a Christian rightly prays the Lord’s Prayer at any time or uses any portion of it as he may desire, his praying is more than adequate.
What is important for a good prayer are not many words, since Christ says in Matthew 6:7, but rather a turning towards God frequently and with heartfelt longing; and in doing so without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17).
