A Prayer for My Intellect

Lord, You are the Source of all Life, all Truth, and all Beauty, I pray to You today, with all my heart, for my intelligence, this light in me, this plant which demands years and years of care, this thing in me, mysterious and moving, this activity which sometimes bounds up, sometimes slows down, which sometimes lifts me up with enthusiasm and sometimes exasperates me, I pray for this thing which runs after ideas, symbols and numbers, this thing which all of a sudden has penetrated inside the thought of another and melds with it like the fusion of two lights a fusion which bring about warmth and light. I pray to You for my mind as You are the Supreme Intelligence which penetrates, illuminates, and embraces all our intelligences. Lord, help make my intelligence amenable to all truths, able to understand the thoughts of others; give to me the wisdom to know the meaning and purpose of my life and learning, so that my knowledge, understanding, and skills may help in some little ways to make this world a better place, for Your greater glory.

  1. Abiding in love is abiding in the Spirit, and abiding in the Spirit is abiding in Love. The transcendent love dwelling in our being that allows to live in joy even in the midst of our trials
    The saints know it experience and we all are invited to that transcendent and divine love for on another and for the world. Spirit is love and love is transcendent, love is perhaps the he name of God. May we fill our intellect with the love of The Trinity three persons dancing together the melody of LOVE. Amen
