Daily Thoughts and Prayers


September 21st



Salient Thought for the Day


      Devotion is a thing that we feel inwardly. It is also a great power.

Lines to Memorize


      Thy flame of love touched my garment.

      I was startled and affrighted lest all my possessions and cherished hopes be burned to nothingness.

      I fled for fear of life, but Thine unquenchable fire ever followed me.

      With troubled heart and misgiving I opened my eyes only to find that Thy bright and blazing flame was not of destruction.

      It burned, yet destroyed it naught.




      There is nothing more potent than the heart of pure, simple, aspiring devotees. Their prayers are potent because they do not pray for themselves. They are answered because there is no selfishness or impurity in them. They can forget themselves because they have something better to think of than themselves. All doubt, skepticism and struggle give way before the light of the Spirit.



      Protector of all, protect me from my lower self.

      Purify my heart and increase my devotion.

      Take from me all discordant, selfish feelings,

      And make me worthy to retain the blessings You pour upon me.
