I love our Divine Mercy chapel, don’t you? It’s a beautiful place to spend 10 minutes or even an hour focusing on what really matters. While I was praying in there a few days ago, this prayer came to my heart.
Blessed be God in His angels and in His saints.
Blessed be God in my heart and in my hands.
Blessed be God in this quiet and storm –
This still, small crowd of worship.
Blessed be God in the sighs of His priest,
In the anxious, the trusting, the hopeful, the weak.
Blessed be God in the power of His cross –
In the mercy… the glory… the almighty cross.
How meek and how lovely, the wood of the cross.
Blessed be God in the bow of our heads –
The bending, the pleading, the aiming of thought
To God. To God. To God.
Blessed be God in His Church and the world;
Blessed be God in the colors and sounds –
The ocean, the meadow, the alley and ditch.
Blessed be God in His servants, we poor.
Blessed be God in His power and rule.
O, come in all majesty! Reign in our hearts!
Pour Your life into mine. Make it Your home.
Blessed be God.
