Prayers to Count the Blessings of God

Romans 5:1 

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

God, Lord and Master of ALL, Above and Below – On Behalf of the Whole

Thank you for filling our Hearts with Love in the  Morning and Through the Night. I count the Blessings of your Peace Beyond all Understanding, and the Living Water you  pour out to every heart that reaches to know in Every Time and Every Place. Only thou art Holy. And Only You are God.

May we wash our hands so we may be worthy to sing our praises to you. Thank you for the Sanctuary within that you have given. Thank you for the Light that Shines both Day and Night.

Thank you for the Heavenly Lights that stand in every corner, and for the Ancestors that lead and guide us on the “hard road” that always leads us back to the Light of Heaven on Earth.




John 19:25-26

Near the cross of Jesus stood His mother and her sister, as well as Mary the wife of Clopas and Mary Magdalene. 26When Jesus saw His mother and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, “Woman, here is your son.”

Who is the disciple that Jesus loved?  Saint John, Apostle

The Feast of Saint John, Apostle and Evangelist – the “disciple Jesus loved” (John 13:23). As the author of a Gospel account, three epistles, and the book of Revelation, John was not only a close friend of Jesus during his time, but a spiritual teacher for the ages.

The phrase “the disciple whom Jesus loved” or, in John 20:2; “the other disciple whom Jesus loved”, is used six times in the Gospel of John, but in no other New Testament accounts of Jesus. John 21:24 states that the Gospel of John is based on the written testimony of this disciple. Wikipedia

John 13:23 – (Story of the Last Supper) One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.

John, who was both a witness and a teacher, “who reclined upon the bosom of the Lord”, and, being a priest, wore the sacerdotal plate. He fell asleep at Ephesus.

The story is one of the many examples of the legend about a man who falls asleep and years after wakes up to find the world changed. It is told in Greek by Symeon Metaphrastes in his “Lives of the Saints” for the month of July.

We can never know the Day or the Hour when we Know Joy in the morning. The Sun is always shining up above, and it depends on the Time that we are Turned to the Light.

I Count my Blessings for the perpetual motion of Mother Earth and the Light that is Always Shining while we wait and the Living and the Dead will see the Divine Mystery that was saved for the end of Time on Earth when all things will be known, and every knee shall bow.

In France, the “Fête de la Saint-Jean” (feast of St John), traditionally celebrated with bonfires (le feu de la Saint-Jean) that are reminiscent of Midsummer’s pagan rituals, is a Catholic festivity in celebration of Saint John the Baptist. It takes place on June 24, on Midsummer day (St John’s day).

According to Thích Nhất Hạnh, the three seals are impermanence, non-self and nirvana. He says in “The heart of the Buddha’s Teaching” that “In several sutras the Buddha taught that nirvana, the joy of completely extinguishing our ideas and concepts, rather than suffering, is one of the Three Dharma Seals.”
