I was writing purely, a fun piece on the ' I want to Complaint'Thread.
In in I mentioned there was no Church on Offbeat, strangely how sometimes one can be
inspired to do something, because immediately after I began thinking more seriously of All the different folks amongst us,
who have been ill .. worried or troubled in many different and hidden way, and who often ask for prayers.. we know how about the Candle Site
Then,so I thought wouldn't it be a good idea to have our OWN little 'praying section, where people can come and express a worry, ask for prayers,
for themselves and their loved ones.. Also a place to leave prayers and meditations.. A quiet place of comfort and of healing.. This Spiritual thread is for EVERYONE .. meaning NO SPECIFIC religion.. it is for people of ALL religions and people of none.. If you are human, you have a problem need a prayer.. or just to meditate.. this is for you.
So here it is, let's give it a try..

The Spiritual Thread>

'A prayer for healing
God, hear my prayer,
And let my cry come to You.
Do not hide from me in the day of my distress
Turn to me and speedily answer my prayer.
Eternal God, Source of healing,
Out of my distress I call upon You.
Help me sense Your presence
At this difficult time.
Grant me patience when the hours are heavy;
In hurt or disappointment give me courage.
Keep me trustful in Your love.
Give me strength for today, and hope for tomorrow.
To your loving hands I commit my spirit
When asleep and when awake. You are with me; I shall not fear'

Always loved the lyrics of this song>

Everybody needs a little help sometime
No one stands alone
Makes no difference if you're just a child like me
Or a king upon a throne
For there are no exceptions
We all stand in the line
Everybody needs a friend
Let me tell you of mine
-------
CHORUS:
He's my forever friend
My leave-me-never friend
From darkest night to rainbow's end
He's my forever friend
-------
Even when I turn away He cares for me
His love no one can shake
Even as I walk away He's by my side
With every breath I take
And sometimes I forget Him
My halo fails to shine
Sometimes I'm not His friend
But He is always mine
-------
REPEAT CHORUS:
If you still don't know the one I'm talking of
I think it's time you knew
Long ago and far away upon a cross
My friend died for you
So if you'd like to meet Him
And don't know what to do
Ask my friend into you heart
And He'll be your friend too
he's my Forecer friend
My leave-me-never friend,
From darkest nigh to rainbow's end..
he's my forever friend.
-------

Hi Grace, I just wanted to say that I've been worried about CG who posted a very intense goodbye. I truly hope he/she is well, may they find peace and whatever else is needed.

Because the mind is free --
Listening to the rain
Dripping from the eaves,
The drops become
One with me.

Very nice sentiment, Sally.
I feel sure she will be in contact again, she promised to 'look in'
occasionally.
Yes.. we all have her best interest at heart, on Offbeat..

We can only pray she will be alright and will receive th help she seeks..as you
said in your post.

Nice thread, Grace:)

Even though I do not believe in a god, I still have faith and meditate often. Meditating helps me with my stress and anger. Someday I may change my mind about the god thing, but for now I am content in my current set of beliefs.

Nice day here. Hope yours is as well.

I actually went to a church that passed big Kentucky Fried Chicken buckets down the rows for offering plates..... Logo and all..

It got to me,,, I started taking the money out of it... Looking at those chicken buckets reminded me that the preacher was long winded, and I would be getting hungry, and I had no money.....

Oh my...

THE god THAT FAILED--Metallica



Now, who was the god that failed???

DECIDE JUST WHAT YOU BELIEVE..

See... WHen Jesus appeared to Pilate John 19:5

Pilate said unto the crowd....

BEHOLD THE MAN.....MEANING...

WOW!!! WHAT A MAN!!!....

See satan tried to kill Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane... Thus Jesus sweatting great drops of blood.

satan tried to kill him by whipping him with the cat of nine tails and scourgings...

lucifer wishes like heck that he could have prevented CHRIST from dying on the cross....

Then there would be no salvation.. no forgiveness....

If you do not recall the CHIRSTMAS story where they killed all the children in the land up to about two years old..Even... But uh, we never hear about that during the CHristmess story now, do we???

HEROD----??? REMEMBER??

Here this may upset a few .... Sorry..

MAtthew 2:13-17

READ IT FOR YOURSELF.... HERE IT IS....

You have eyes to see?? Now see!!

Duh...

HEROD's DECREE.....

the god that failed..

I dunno why I just said that...

Matthew 18:19

"Again I say unto you,
That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven"

The word AGAIN... just kills me here...

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket. I'd strongly suggest you put on a pair of new Dockers Heat-Resistant CometPants first though, unless you're into third-degree burns.

Thank you SO much Danyel, yes I think a little place of reflection and meditation as you say, worthwhile, there are many forms of prayer, as we know,
even tonight as I was out with my son, by the sea, the whole scene was like a picture, the sea, ice blue, in color, a mere hint of blue as still as glass stretching silently far far out and blending into a sky of the same ice blue in colour.. a soft mist blocked out the horizon-giving the effect of sky and sea as ONE
a lone light from the lighthouse reflecting intermittently .. turning the sea water blood red.. it's beauty stopped us in our tracks.. That was a prayer
I am glad people will get peace from the thread..

And thank you too..
We will pray for you.
Thanks to Duh, Meryl, Ozzie and everyone who came to this new thread.
If anyone has a prayer, quotation, meditation, anything like that, feel free to share here.
I leave with an evening prayer.
Good night everyone, sleep safe.

If I have wounded any soul today,
If I have caused one foot to go astray,
If I have walked in my own willful way,
Dear Lord, forgive!

If I have uttered idle words or vain,
If I have turned aside from want or pain,
Lest I myself shall suffer through the strain,
Dear Lord, forgive!

If I have been perverse or hard, or cold,
If I have longed for shelter in Thy fold,
When Thou hast given me some fort to hold,
Dear Lord, forgive!

Forgive the sins I have confessed to Thee;
Forgive the secret sins I do not see;
O guide me, love me and my keeper be,
Dear Lord, Amen

(Maude Battersby)
