A Prayer By Karl Barth

March 27, 2014

O Lord, our God! Thou knowest who we are: human beings with a good or bad conscience, some content and others discontent, some secure and others insecure, convinced Christians and nominal Christians, believers, half-believers, and unbelievers. Thou also knowest whence we have come: from the bonds of family and friendship or from great loneliness, from […]

A Prayer By Origen

March 6, 2014

Let us ask the Lord to broaden our ideas, make them clearer and bring them nearer to the truth, that we may understand the other things too that he has revealed to his prophets. May we study the Holy Spirit’s writings under the guidance of the Spirit himself and compare one spiritual interpretation with another, […]

A Prayer By Clement of Rome

February 27, 2014

May he who created everything keep the number of his chosen people, throughout the world, up to the strength he fixed for them through his dear Child, Jesus Christ. Through him he called us from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge of the glory of his name. We have confidence in you: you were […]

A Prayer By Origen

February 20, 2014

The Lord grant that we may believe in our hearts, declare with our mouths and prove by our deeds that his covenant with us has been sealed in our flesh. May men see that what we do is good and praise our Father in heaven for it, through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom glory […]

A Prayer By Soren Kierkegaard

February 13, 2014

Father in Heaven! Our thought is turned toward Thee; again it seeks Thee at this hour, not with the unsteady step of a lost traveler but with the sure flight of a bird homeward bound. Grant then that our confidence in Thee be not a fugitive thought, a momentary leap, a mistaken appeasement of the […]

A Prayer By Clement of Alexandria

December 11, 2013

Be kind to your little children, Lord: that is what we ask of you as their Tutor, you the Father, Israel’s Guide; Son, yes, but Father as well. Grant that by doing what you have told us to do, we may achieve a faithful likeness to the Image and, as far as is possible for […]

A Prayer By Flannery O’Connor

November 13, 2013

Recently a prayer journal from Flannery O’Connor’s college days was discovered. The journal spans about a year and a half of her life. She was just twenty one and twenty two years of age when she penned many of the entries. It is a personal journal that was never intended for publishing. The entries are […]

The Power of Prayer

November 2, 2013

This week my four year old son, Jackson, has been praying for rain every night and twice we have woken up and it has been raining. Each time I have taken him to the front door, reminded him what he prayed for, and showed him the rain. He said, “God answered my prayer!” He was […]

A Prayer By Soren Kierkegaard

October 23, 2013

Calm my troubled heart; give me peace. O Lord, calm the waves of this heart, calm its tempests! Calm thyself, O my soul, so that God is able to repose in thee, so that his peace may cover thee! Yes, Father in heaven, often we have found that the world cannot give us peace; let […]

Lead Us Not Into Temptation

October 9, 2013

Have you been tempted lately? The more we pray and the more we trust in God the more likely it is that Satan will tempt us. In Jesus’ life Satan comes after him immediately following his baptism. In the book of Job Satan went after a man who was “blameless and upright.” We might think […]
