Rising with gratitude – A Prayer


belief bible book business


Today, I woke up with a tremendous sense of ‘well-being’ and gratitude.   It is a beautiful golden Spring morning and it is also a Sunday here.   My first prayer for the day was ‘Thank you Lord, for Your Peace, Your Grace and Your Presence in this day.’

My second thought and this prayer I will also write here.

Father across this world others are not waking up to a day of Peace and awareness of Your Presence.     For those who are suffering the aftermath of savage storms or ravages of fire and disaster and many who are grieving for lost ones because of this or other tragedies, my heart turns towards them.

May Your Healing Hands and Heart through the care of folk who come to help be evident.  

Lord, in Jesus Name, Pour healing Grace upon the situations and give Strength and unbelievable Ability to all who administer HOPE as well as COMFORT.


About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Faye, This is a beautiful prayer with which to start the day. Thank you for sharing. I hope you are doing well. It has been a long time since we have “talked”. I have been involved in the on-going struggle of my daughter-in-law as she fights cancer.
    Hugs, Lori
