    Sacred Moment" a prayer by Paulo Coelho

    Lord, protect our doubts, because Doubt is a way of praying. It is Doubt that makes us grow because it forces us to look fearlessly at the many answers that exist to one question. And in order for this to be possible…

    Lord, protect our decisions, because making Decisions is a way of praying. Give us the courage, after our doubts, to be able to choose between one road and another. May our YES always be a YES and our NO always be a NO. Once we have chosen our road, may we never look back nor allow our soul to be eaten away by remorse. And in order for this to be possible…

    Lord, protect our actions, because Action is a way of praying. May our daily bread be the result of the very best that we carry within us. May we, through work and Action, share a little of the love we receive. And in order for this to be possible…

    Lord, protect our dreams, because to Dream is a way of praying. Make sure that, regardless of our age or our circumstances, we are capable of keeping alight in our heart the sacred flame of hope and perseverance. And in order for this to be possible…

    Lord, give us enthusiasm, because Enthusiasm is a way of praying. It is what binds us to the Heavens and to Earth, to grown-ups and to children, it is what tells us that our desires are important and deserve our best efforts. It is Enthusiasm that reaffirms to us that everything is possible, as long as we are totally committed to what we are doing. And in order for this to be possible…

    Lord, protect us, because Life is the only way we have of making manifest Your miracle. May the earth continue to transform seeds into wheat, may we continue to transmute wheat into bread. And this is only possible if we have Love; therefore, do not leave us in solitude. Always give us Your company, and the company of men and women who have doubts, who act and dream and feel enthusiasm, and who live each day as if it were totally dedicated to Your glory.

    Isn’t the above prayer simply beautiful?? Does it need more explanation?
    Ever thought about the power of prayer? It is a real tangible force that can make a difference in your life .It goes beyond positive thoughts and optimism in giving you something to believe in, a higher power that may intervene and help sort out what you want .You align yourself to a source of power and energy that can actually transform you. It helps align your mind, body and soul and brings about a natural calmness that makes you stay at peace within yourself and your surroundings .It simply harmonizes and brings in Peace.

    A sincere prayer does lot of miracles….. have you experienced any miracle after a sincere prayer ??

    Thank you Sir....
    I had read and saved this beautiful poem long back and thought of sharing it today.
    When we want to do many things but are helpless, remember there is always a prayer, a heartfelt sincere prayer can do miracles.

    Excellent share @nandinimithun .....faith and prayer have brought about wonders in this world. We just have to remember this fact. Talking about prayer, I am reminded of this couplet by Kabir -

    दुःख में सुमिरन सब करे सुख में करै न कोय।
    जो सुख में सुमिरन करे दुःख काहे को होय ॥
