Why a site about prayer?

The purpose of this site is to encourage us to each go deeper in our prayer life. One way that we do that is by praying together. Another way we do that is by praying individually yet collectively on the same prayer themes. Our hope is that as we share prayers and reflect on them and pray over them at the same time in our individual lives, the Holy Spirit will speak to each of us and allow us to encourage and edify one another in prayer.

Daily Prayer of Mother Teresa

DEAR JESUS, help me to spread Thy fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Thy spirit and love. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus. Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be a light to others.

  1. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that I would radiate only you Jesus. We long to reflect you, to be so full of you that we lose ourselves in you and nothing is left but you. Make this a reality in our lives -- take us deeper into pursuing and knowing you in the deep places in our daily lives. Reveal to us anything that is holding us back from spreading your fragrance everywhere we go. Amen.

  2. Whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Lord I need to gaze upon your face, to see your glory. Draw me close. Amen

  3. Flood my soul with thy spirit and love. Yes, Lord. Flood my soul! Spirit, take the lead. Love, be the driving force! You alone, Jesus. You are worthy.

  6. Be so in me!

    1 Corinthians 1:30
    "It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption."

    You are everything, Jesus, and you are IN us! Thank you, Jesus. We are nothing without you.
