Welcome, Welcome, Welcome

The Welcoming Prayer

Welcome, welcome, welcome. I welcome everything that comes to me today because I know it’s for my healing. I welcome all thoughts, feelings, emotions, persons, situations, and conditions. I let go of my desire for power and control. I let go of my desire for affection, esteem, approval and pleasure. I let go of my desire for survival and security. I let go of my desire to change any situation, condition, person or myself. I open to the love and presence of God and God’s action within. Amen.

~ Fr Thomas Keating~

This beautiful, new-to-me prayer showed up in my Reader today, complements of Annette at In the Silence

    1. I know! I may have to print this out and hang it where I can see it every day.

  2. Kathy the power of positive affirmations works wonders, I used to have one posted on my bedroom door and this way I'd read it before I left the bedroom each and every time. After a while my affirmation became my reality and what a beautiful way to live!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. I've hung several prayers and affirmations. The problem is that after a while I start looking past them. I wonder if it would make a difference if I swapped them out for different ones.
