I was looking what to post yesterday that is more palatable to readers when it comes to spirituality for Sunday Snippet. I am very much aware when it comes to the topic of religion, it’s hardly entertained. Using Parabola is a good source which I posted this morning. I opted out of sharing what really how it is as my inspiration. Now, I am sharing with you the original inspiration: The Story of a Soul.
“The power of prayer is really tremendous. I cannot hunt through the books for beautiful prayers. There are many of them that I get a headache. Besides each prayer seems lovelier that the next. I cannot possibly say them all and do not know which to choose. I tell God very simply what I want and He always understands.For me, prayer is an upward leap of the heart,
an untroubled glance towards heaven,
a cry of gratitude, and
love which I utter from the depths of sorrows
as well from the heights of joy.
It has a supernatural grandeur
which expands the soul
and unites it with God.
I say an Our Father or a Hail Mary when I feel so spiritually barren that I cannot summon up a single worthwhile thought. These two prayers fill me with rapture and feed and satisfy my soul”
