Morning Prayer

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I just thought I would write an entry about a major point of stability in my life -- the Daily Office. Or, daily prayer. the first "office" is Morning Prayer, which is a set of prayers, canticles, psalms, and appointed readings for the day. Always, this turns me around and provides me with direction for the day. This places me in a position of thanksgiving and provides me with strength. I've been doing this for about 10 years now. Sometimes alone, but for the last few years this is said daily at my (Episcopal) church and so I start the day as part of a very small group with Morning Prayer. Over time this soaks into my bones!

    Oh, to let judgement of myself and of others go....always easier to follow a a healthy food plan when I am remembering this. But, in reference to what you said, I am able to be consistent in the mornings at prayer but less so at night.

    Gratitude needs to be practiced everyday. I do meditation in the mornings but find that I have more difficulty focusing in the evening. I find that not having to "judge" others has made me far kinder of myself.
Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Ida and Sunflowergirl79. I wasn't raised with this "attitude of gratitude"! In fact, it was quite foreign to my family. But it makes all the difference and I have been learning to love myself and "own" my body.

    This is how everyone should start the morning is with prayer & also end the day with prayer

I do this also every morning as I have so many health problems that I thank God for letting me get up in the morning and then at night thank him for letting me get through one more day in my life.

God Bless
Ida
