Prayer 2: fill me with belief

from Seven Prayers for Stephen Chilton: Requiem [album] by John Harvey



Lord, bless me; guide me; fill me with belief; free me of my anxiety. And, help me to be more present for the next existence to which you are calling me, with a greater awareness that I am not giving in but that I am following and choosing a way of life that will ultimately lead to a union with you (through prayer, through art, and through my being with others). Lord, watch over me and bring me into your earthly paradise; the paradise, I believe, is inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Lord, you made me like this for a reason. May I follow the right path and fulfil the life you have created within me from the start (April 17, 2010).
