O God, Mary and Joseph cooperated with you
in the childhood training of Jesus.

May we cooperate with you when we help our friends,
our enemies, criminals, and everyone in need.
Help us do what we cannot do now.

May we cooperate with you for genuine justice
and peace in all that we think and say and do.

May we with Mary and Joseph follow Jesus, and share
your generous love with all the people of the world.

– Sacred Heart Catholic Church

365 Blessings, Poems and Meditations

Prayer takes many forms: sitting in silence, walking mediation, using prayer beads or folding your hands every night and talking to God. If you want something different in your life, you must pray a different prayer. We are constantly communing with the Divine throughout our daily lives – even in the most ordinary activities. Comprised of both mindfulness meditations, prayer practices and selections of sacred texts, poems and blessings, Becca Anderson, author of Prayers for Hard Times and Every Day Thankful, gathers words of encouragement, comfort and sustenance for women. From Peace Pilgrim to Psalms to Dolly Parton, this collection of power thoughts and purposeful prayers will help you get inspired, and more importantly, stay inspired.
