Beautiful Inspirational Prayers

This is a selection of beautiful inspirational prayers. Prayers are healing and prayers help us get in touch with the sacred within us…

• Prayers are a very personal thing. There is no particular “method” or “technique”.

• Prayers are a wonderful opportunity to extend love and gratitude, not only to “ask” for things to go our way. All prayers are always answered, sometimes the way they are answered seems to be different than what we originally intended but in a long run we are able to understand that, that was the best answer we could have ever asked for.

Here are some Inspirational Prayers...

“ …There is a light in you which cannot die; whose presence is so holy that the world is sanctified because of you…
The scent of flowers is their gift to you.
The waves bow down before you, and the trees extend their arm to shield you from the heat, and lay their leaves before you on the ground that you may walk in softness while the wind sinks to a whisper round your holy head” A Course in Miracles

Saint Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you
May you be content knowing you are a child of God
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Inspirational poem prayer by Ralph Waldo Emerson …

Father We Thank Thee

For flowers that bloom about our feet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For tender grass so fresh, so sweet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For the song of bird and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

For blue of stream and blue of sky,
Father, we thank Thee.
For pleasant shade of branches high,
Father, we thank Thee.
For fragrant air and cooling breeze,
For beauty of the blooming trees,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

For this new morning with its light,
Father, we thank Thee.
For rest and shelter of the night,
Father, we thank Thee
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

Native American Inspirational Prayers:

May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears,
And, above all, may silence make you strong.

Chief Dan George

A Sioux Prayer (Translated by Chief Yellow Lark – 1887)

Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds
Whose breath gives life to the world, hear me
I come to you as one of your many children
I am small and weak
I need your strength and wisdom

May I walk in beauty
Make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made
And my ears sharp to your voice.
Make me wise so that I may know the things you have taught your children.

The lessons you have written in every leaf and rock
Make me strong!
Not to be superior to my brothers, but to fight my greatest enemy....myself

Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes,
So that when life fades as the fading sunset,
May my spirit come to you without shame.

Apache Blessing

May the sun bring you new energy by day,
May the moon softly restore you by night,
May the rain wash away your worries,
May the breeze blow new strength into your being.
May you walk through the world and know
Its beauty all the days of your life

The first peace, which is the most important,
is that which comes within the souls of people
when they realize their relationship,
their oneness, with the universe and all its powers,
and when they realize that at the center
of the universe dwells Wakan-Taka (the Great Spirit),
and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.
This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this.
The second peace is that which is made between two individuals,
and the third is that which is made between two nations.
But above all you should understand that there can never
be peace between nations until there is known that true peace,
which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men.

Black Elk, Oglala Sioux & Spiritual Leader (1863 - 1950)

A Well of Goodness and Love

I hope you enjoyed these beautiful inspirational prayers.

Just remember that there is something sacred within yourself… something/someone holy and complete.

Even in the worst of a crisis, we can ALWAYS turn to It for help… Know that somewhere deep within ourselves there is a well of goodness and perfect love that flows freely and abundantly … Unfortunately, it has been obscured by beliefs of hatred and scarcity but nevertheless it is always there and YOU CAN ACCESS IT WHENEVER YOU CHOOSE TO.

"All I can say is THANKYOU! so much for making this site! I was put on anti-depressants when I was 13 (now 20) after a childhood of severe abuse in every imaginable way. Just a few weeks ago I've come off my medications for good and am never going back. I came across this site today, it has helped so much already!
