In meditation prayers can help you to:
These are some of my most favorite meditation prayers that I have used over the last 30 years. Somehow the power of these prayers never seem to lessen. That is why I want to share them with you. I have them all written down in my meditation inspirations book. Whenever I feel the need for inspiration and guidance to go deeper in my meditation, these meditation prayers help me greatly.
Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
The Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Only You by The Lady
Only Your eyes
Prayer is really asking for the truth by Gourasana
Prayer is really asking for the truth. You sit there and you do not understand where to go, what to do. Fill your mind with prayer:
“Show me the way. Show me the light. Show me how I can find the truth that I know is there”. What is this Love of God? What is this experience that saints and sages throughout the ages have spoken? How is it that a man sits alone on a mountaintop for years in stages of ecstasy, feeling such incredible love and bliss, yet no one is around? What is it that he is touching? What is it that he is seeing? What is it that he is hearing? What is it that he is experiencing?
It is nothing that you can see with these eyes and ears, and your mind and your senses. It is love. But it is unlike any love you have known on this plane. It is a love that satisfies all desires. It is truth. But it is not just some knowledge. It is a knowing which satisfies all hunger and thirst for knowledge.
Music is also such a help in finding your own meditation prayers. This music video of Sigur Ros is one of my favorites.
