Imagine the Joy You Can Have

Imagine the joy you can have


May this prayer based on the expression of my parish priest Father Cid, open you to new possibilities: “Imagine the joy you can have!” 


Dear God,
Today, help me
the tight hold
my dark burdens
so light can reach
into my heart.
Redirect my gaze
to the magic that exists
all around me,

starting with the miracles
in nature. 

As I begin my day,
opening my front door,

let me also open the door
to joy.


How has your life been influenced by suggestions from people from your own faith community? What did they say? Can you practice one of those suggestions today?
