You don't have to be a Christian or even a believer
in God to recite this Prayer. It's universal. Just repeat
in your most
down moments and it will give you strength. I know it gives me strength both during the hardest and happiest moments in life. I have learnt that no matter what
people say about you or your actions (occasionally others misjudge
your character and engage in ill intended slander) it doesn't change
or alter who you truly are and what
you stand for. On occasion, another's piercing words
can equally pierce your heart, but always remember that those are words
ill intent and vision to harm. Remain
strong and believe in the power of self, for if there is no other to rely on - it is only yourself and those loved ones you truly trust. I have learnt that trying to put out a fire with fire
doesn't work - it only creates an inferno. But if you remain
as cool as the waters near a flaming fire
, slowly but surely the fire
shall die down but the water forever
remains. Similarly, if you have been slandered, the fire
of those words
can only be extinguished by the coolness and calmness of your watery spirit.
The Lord's Prayer lends us strength in the darkest of times
and gives us hope during the hopeful
of days and joy each and every moment you breath.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from
For thine is the kingdom,
and the glory,
for ever and ever.
