A Canvas of Being

The most powerful prayer
Of worthy work, divine
When the outcome is
Of a quiet mind

The more powerful
The quieter the mind
More telling, the deeper
More perfect prayer we find

Lord, let our quiet mind
Be a canvas of being
With each living moment
God’s Presence of freeing

For to the quiet mind
We will come to see
Gifts of our Gods endless

Meister Eckhart | May 2018 (Vol. XXXI, No. 5)

The most powerful prayer, one well nigh omnipotent, and the worthiest work of all is the outcome of a quiet mind. The quieter the mind, the more powerful, the worthier, the deeper, the more telling and more perfect the prayer is. To the quiet mind all things are possible.

Meister Eckhart’s Thank You Prayer

If the only prayer
We said, was thank you
That would be enough
Do you think that’s true?

Acknowledging our God
In gratitude proclaim
A heart of thankfulness
Hallowed be his name

In good times and in bad
We are thankful still
On earth as in heaven
Let it be your will

Blessed with daily bread
Grace in all we see
Dependent for the gift
Of your great mercy

I think it is enough
When humble our heart be
And our soul is placed
Within the love of thee
