I thought I would start this thread where we can add prayers for hope and inspiration. It is a non denomination thread so anyone can add to it. I will add a couple of prayers that were listed in a previous prayer tree thread so that we can continue to look over them as needed as found them of great comfort during my recent hospitalisations.

Our Heavenly Father, please hear our prayers for the sick members of our PR community and for all those who are in need. Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence. Please show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free downcast spirits. May these special people find lasting health and deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts. We ask this through the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Peace to all beings.
May all beings be well and happy and free from fear.

Peace to all beings,
whether known or unknown,
visible or invisible, real or imaginary,
born or yet to be born.
May all beings be well and happy and free from fear.

Peace to all beings,
within and beyond the imagination,
in the world of ideas, in the world of memories
and in the world of dreams.
May all beings be well and happy and free from fear.

Peace in all the elements
of earth and air and fire and water,
fulfilled in space, peace.

Peace in all universes,
from the smallest cells in the body
to the greatest galaxies in space.
Peace and light rising.

Peace to all beings,
within each being here,
those beings that are of the past and
those are yet to be in the future.
May all beings be well and happy and free from fear.

Peace and love and
comfort and ease to all in need.
May they be well and happy and free from fear.

(Various versions of the above exist. I don't know which is the original. Maybe it's best though to make it your own? One source named John Garrie Rosh as (the original's) author.)

A Prayer for Hope
Heavenly father, I am your humble servant, I come before you today in need of hope. There are times when I fell helpless, There are times when I feel weak. I pray for hope. I need hope for a better future. I need hope for a better life. I need hope for love and kindness.

Some say that the sky is at it's darkest just before the light. I pray that this is true, for all seems dark. I need your light, Lord, in every way.

I pray to be filled with your light from head to toe. To bask in your glory. To know that all is right in the world, as you have planned, and as you want it to be.

Help me to walk in your light, and live my life in faith and glory.

In your name I pray, Amen.

A prayer for tonight's autumn equinox (Mabon) which I find inspirational:

Equal hours of light and darkness
we celebrate the balance of Mabon,
and ask the gods to bless us.
For all that is bad, there is good.
For that which is despair, there is hope.
For the moments of pain, there are moments of love.
For all that falls, there is the chance to rise again.
May we find balance in our lives
as we find it in our hearts.

Prayer for Protection

The Light of God surrounds me.
The Love of God enfolds me.
The Power of God protects me.
The Presence of God watches over me.
The Mind of God guides me.
The Life of God flows through me.
The Laws of God direct me.
The Power of God abides within me.
The Joy of God uplifts me.
The Strength of God renews me.
The Beauty of God inspires me.
Wherever I am, God is.

This prayer was written by James Freeman for all soldiers during World War II.

"Give me strength, not to be better than my enemies, but to defeat my greatest enemy, the doubts within myself. Give me strength for a straight back and clear eyes, so when life fades, as the setting sun, my spirit may come to you without shame.” ― P.C. Cast
