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.

 

Lesson

 

      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.

Prayer

 

      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.
