Since it’s Easter week…

and I love this week for what it’s about AND for the bunnies…

I’m watching the Today Show. And this is a really interesting segment they are having this week.

Religion should be a unifying force. 

I think that’s a powerful important sentence.

Not everyone prays and that is totally ok.  But for those of us that do, a good prayer can be a lifesaving moment.

It can also be a warm memory.

I thought I’d give an example of prayers I like.

I love Catherine’s from yesterday

beloved spirit of infinite wisdom and light. Pour down on me your servant, an abundance of your blessings that I may share them with others.

How pretty is that?  Get right to the point, too.

My co worker has this taped to the bottom of her computer screen:

It’s been there for years, tattered and worn. It’s been there as long as I’ve worked there (over two years) and clearly longer. It makes me smile..and think…every time I read it.

My favorite prayer is straight out of The Book of Common Prayer. My family heard it and were like, “really? um…ok”. It’s really nothing spectacular but it warms my heart every time I read it (or say it at this point). I could read it over and over just for the first line.

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ, give rest to the weary, bless the the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love’s sake. Amen. 

So if you pray…do you have a favorite prayer?


I got my first killer horrible unbelievable knock my socks off put me to bed migraine last night since the Botox and there was no running.

I slept instead.

Running tonight.

Love to you all.

thanks for reading 🙂

The Runner's Prayer.

I changed my mind…can I choose this one?

Run on…

    1. I really love the runner’s prayer. It’s so good and true.

      And thanks for the migraine love. I’m feeling better today. Mostly. 🙂

  1. Hope that is the last migraine! My favorite is still the Lord’s prayer, but I also have said the Hail Mary for many years, taught to me by my Mother who was raised Catholic. There are many in the book of Common Prayer that I like from my Episcopalian upbringing. But as an adult I have been pretty ecumenical, been to lots of churches. Never found one I totally agreed with but I feel that it is like an AA meeting-take what you want or need and leave the rest.
