thank you so much for your efforts and willingness to co-ordinate all this!
I think we shouldn’t make things too complicated, although it would be wonderful to have us all praying at the same time! For myself, my idea is that I will say my prayer in the morning after waking up (probably every day and especially on Tuesday), and then another prayer at lunch time (1.30 p.m. fits me well, after walking Sunny and cooking, or even when visiting St. Anthony’s san...
I think we shouldn’t make things too complicated, although it would be wonderful to have us all praying at the same time! For myself, my idea is that I will say my prayer in the morning after waking up (probably every day and especially on Tuesday), and then another prayer at lunch time (1.30 p.m. fits me well, after walking Sunny and cooking, or even when visiting St. Anthony’s sanctuary near my woods 🙂 when I come back from my ‘Sunny walk’
But people who are working or busy with other obligations should choose the time which fits them best!!
Blessings and hugs to all here!
I will probably not be present in the Gratitude Lounge for some days, but I am not sure yet !
And of course, if I use the prayer I suggested below, I will say ‘we’ instead of merely ‘I’!
Hi everyone, and thank you, Anna … Next Tuesday I won’t be in my usual place, but I have already made a notice in my calendar so I will be with you! I think lunch break will be perfect for me to join in the Prayer circle … but I have just read that the best way to get your desires realizte themselves is chossing a time you can get drousy easily, and that would be before sleeping or just after waking up in the morning, which seems natural. But then we won’t be able to do it at ...
Hi everyone, and thank you, Anna … Next Tuesday I won’t be in my usual place, but I have already made a notice in my calendar so I will be with you! I think lunch break will be perfect for me to join in the Prayer circle … but I have just read that the best way to get your desires realizte themselves is chossing a time you can get drousy easily, and that would be before sleeping or just after waking up in the morning, which seems natural. But then we won’t be able to do it at the same time overseas and in Europe. Let’s have some more suggestions!
The Affirmation I wanted to share with you, which is a Prayer in my eyes and which I learnt recently:
It seems to be by Joseph Murphy, but I have learnt it from Lucas Stiefvater, “Portraits in Faith”(maybe you have heard of it):
Divine order (love) takes charge of my life
today and every day,
and all things work together for good for me today.
This is a new and wonderful day
for me. There will never be another day like this one.
I am divinely protected and guided all day long
and whatever I do will prosper.
Divine love surrounds me, enfolds me and enwraps me,
and I go forth in peace.
Whenever my attention wanders away from that which is good and constructive, I immediately bring it back to the contemplation of that which is lovely and of good report.
I am a spiritual and mental magnet attracting to myself all things which bless and prosper me.
I am a wonderful success in all my undertakings today.
I am healthy, I am happy, I am love, I am light, and I am divine.
(slightly modified by Lucas Stiefvater and myself in comparison with the original).
I think I will use this Prayer for our Prayer circle, including all of us and probably the whole planet in it!
Alles Gute zum Geburtstag, lieber Bruder David! Ich bin froh und dankbar, Sie und gratefulness gefunden zu haben, und viele Kreise haben sich dadurch geschlossen!
By continuing to live my life, by being excited and grateful day by day and by being optimistic and confident despite any obstacles which present themselves.
Nancy, Pilgrim, I just saw that you want to join in the Community Prayer as well … Thank you for your love and support, and I thank you both for your wonderful words to my post some time ago, which I didn’t answer directly. I know and appreciate very much your being a part of my ‘special support community’.
Blessings to you! 💗
first I apologize for not having answered to Aine, Diane, Manda and Sylvie! I am so happy to see you here again, and I am touched by your loving words.
I can only briefly check in for the moment and I don’t know when I’ ll be back … since a few days I am quite busy, will tell you later about that.
As I said, we are all connected … Curiously enough, a few days ago when walking with Sunny in the woods I thought about the day we could cho...
As I said, we are all connected … Curiously enough, a few days ago when walking with Sunny in the woods I thought about the day we could choose, and it came to my mind: ‘Oh, today is Tuesday, and we have done the St. Martha’s Prayer for a while. Maybe we should choose Tuesdays!’ And now many of you suggest that day, reminding the St. Martha’s Prayer! 🙂
We are always inter-woven in our minds, if I can say so … I am sure the word doesn’t exist, but I don’t mind!
Thank you all for the great idea, and Diane … As I said I would be very pleased to include all and each one of us, so I think we should definitely include the whole gratefulness community and maybe some special names which are special for us, or who need special healing! Of course everyone can include loved ones who are not in the gratitude community, and ask to include that special person also! Diane, Aine, we will definitely pray for you and ALL our beloved friends AS WELL. There are so many names that I don’t want to write them all down, because if I forget one, I don’t want to offend anyone!!
I have found a wonderful blessing recently which I would like to write down – I have to go now, but I will try to post it one of these days!
Blessings, and I am with you every day but especially on Tuesdays! 💗
Dear friends in gratitude lounge,
I have been off for a while and have started to check in here now after pausing. I know that you are/were thinking of me, and I am thinking of you as well, of course!
Mary, I am especially happy to see you here again, as you are an inspiration for me on healing and I have been thinking of you so often, especially just these days!!! Thank you for your touching words about Billy your cat!
Anna, thank you for including me in your friend’...
Anna, thank you for including me in your friend’s list, but I am not ‘long-lost’ 😉!! I am here and I live my life, and many inspirations I have found here and the support of all you lovely friends here are helping me day by day, along with support of people near and far whom I know and sometimes don’t but who are praying for me as I often learn … It’s amazing!! And of course I try to apply what I have learned on my spiritual journey daily!
I want to thank you for all your support and answers to my last post some time ago, I always appreciate your steady prayers and blessings, dear friends old and new on gratefulness! Sorry that I didn’t answer and thank each of you – be assured I am thinking of you!I also thought about Sylvie’s offer to do more for me, and if you want, I would be grateful for a common prayer or sending blessings and healing energy my way; as Jesus said ‘When two or three are together in my name …’ (I don’t know the exact words), I am sure this will be the puzzle stone which will help me heal fully!!
And hugs to everyone! ❤
Hi dear friends,
I knew that some of you would ask how I am and in fact, checking in here, I saw that there were questions about my Situation …
Thank you so much for thinking of me, first of all, and thank the many of you for their comments to my quite some time ago last post!!! I appreciate your prayers, blessings for being well and support in so many ways so very much!!
As you may imagine, I am in a ‘fragile’ mood these days and I have had some emotion...
As you may imagine, I am in a ‘fragile’ mood these days and I have had some emotional traumas (and re-traumatizations) to deal with, too. I won’t tell any Details, though.
The good news is that I have found someone to do psychotherapy with, and I hope she is the right one for me! Also, I am working with visualizing (hi Aine and Hot Sauce!) and affirmations like before, and meditation of course. I came upon mirror work inspired by Louise Hay and Robert Holden as well. It helps me with my affirmations.
These days I feel exhausted and am working on my physical strength by mental means, walking with Sunny and getting relaxation and sleep whenever possible. I want to refine my nutrition in order to help my body heal, and I am waiting for the right path with this. I am sure it comes as one more piece in the whole mosaic of my healing.
What I want to let you know is that I am checking in here in the Gratitude Lounge very rarely at the moment, I just want to focus on myself at the moment. That’s why I don’t read most of your entries here, it’s just “too much” at the moment. So please don’t worry if I do not write, and know that I am thinking of you!
Thank you for your prayers, blessings and good thoughts!
Much love, Ursula
According to Louise Hay I read/heard just yesterday, it is the most important construction element for a healthy life/ future! I want my health to improve and be well, so I am ‘working hard’ on loving myself, which includes letting go of anger & resentment.
Thank you so much for your voice reading the poem. It sounds won-der-ful, I wouldn’t have guessed that you recorded it after your treatment!
So happy that you have healed! And thank you for the gift of your nature sound recordings and sound sanctuary!
Lots of love,
Thank you and welcome, grateful sea!
Thank you so much for your wonderful words and ideas, dear Mary! I think you are absolutely right about spiritual and physical healing, and that’s what I practice. I know that you wrote about your own healing in the Gratitude Lounge, and this has been an inspiration for me ever since!
Thank you for holding me in your heart, and for your wonderful suggestions!

I think everyone can choose to write their prayers for me down or not, as they like, but knowing that some people are praying on the same day or at the same time would be great, although I know it is not easy to coordinate. And even if someone cannot choose a specific day when others agree to pray, it will be very welcome of course to send good thoughts my way another day!
Maybe who wants to join this circle can make their suggestions; and I think as many here need support for healing in one way or another, we could make a prayer circle for everyone!! This will be even more powerful. We already know we are all interconnected!!
Thank you for your kindness again, dear Mary!
Hugs and blessings! Ursula ❤💖
thank you so much for your beautiful words and prayers. My ‘therapies’ are basically of spiritual nature, and I am with Mary that spiritual / psychical healing is the key for physical healing.

And respecting my own limits (for example when doing housework or responding to children’s requests), which is often a challenge for me. Now they have holidays and I would like them to help me with laundry and cleaning, but they don’t really want and convincing them is a challenge of sorts … Also convincing them to do something else than computer time …
I have to learn to accept that they are not small children anymore and make their own decisions. I often blame(d) myself for their behaviour, so self live towards myself is what I really need!
Thank you again for your caring and loving words and thoughts! ❤🙏
Thank you for this answer, Kevin. I agree!
And aromatic herbs sound great, too! :-))
Beautiful, Anna! I can relate to that, although it has not been so often I find myself near the ocean! But on a hot day near any water, I especially appreciate the evening mood & atmosphere!
I am with Pilgrim, sounds wonderful, dear Susan!
Beautiful, Jim Featherpen!
That sounds great, Anna! I would love to laugh like you did … haven’t had this pleasure for much too long!
Happy for you to have this joy! Have a good week ahead!
