The lovely book by John Philip Newell entitled Praying with the Earth: A Prayerbook for Peace is set up in such a way that the reader not only finds – in addition to the prayers for the life of the world – prayers of awareness and blessing twice a day but also quotes from the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures and the Quran. That sounds like a lot of words but, in fact, it is not. Here are the three Scripture quotes for Monday morning that in their brevity moves one, perhaps, to a deeper, wordless place of peace.
Wait for God. Be strong and let your heart take courage. (Psalm 27: 14)
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:21)
Remember God deep in your soul with humility and reverence. (Quran – The Heights 7 .205)
