Pilgrim's Prayer Spirituality And Philosophy

Lord, help me to find you at all times, to see everywhere to find in each of the hours in which I live. If I am to be a footprint allows translating into green gardens and vast fields along which free men before the world and submitted to you. If I can be a word that touches tenderly understanding of my fellow firmly entering into the soul of the listener, happy flying the rhymes of the most beautiful poems and happy to slide into the favorite songs of the people. If I may be a way, help me to always be illuminated by the light of your mercy that can advance peace travelers, hikers of mercy, the wandering life, the explorers of new worlds and best-in-step towards the conquest of happiness. If I can be a line that has the wonderful sense of the divine melody of the harp to praise thy name: the rate of those who dance for you, the beauty of the sky on in the evenings full of light and morning where the aurora seems embodied in a canvas where your brush has drawn a table depicting the fair of the pleasant feelings. If I am to be a prayer help me to rise so high that you can get uninterrupted unfortunate not regret later. That in the full moonlight or in the steep and gloomy path, my lips invoking your name and clearly express their undying gratitude, his intercession or the agony of the prodigal son in need of your love, your calling and your forgiveness.

If I am to be a soldier help me to have an invulnerable shield against attacks cunning of the enemy before the deceptive lure of wicked temptations, and help me fight with courage in your holy name and win the victory of eternal life for more and most people who want to open the door of heaven. If I am to be a book, let me be the bearer of your lyrics woven into sentences true to the faith, which in turn form pages of bliss, complete honesty chapters, excerpts of perfect harmony and, finally, a clear body of teachings, far of the silence of oblivion and faithful to the memory of your time. If I am to be a pilgrim help me earn your name in appreciation of the people here and over there and serve with devotion to one and the other in the belief that you dwell in each person and that in every human being is Your word glorious, unlimited power of your beauty your undying, everlasting your fragrance and your presence unmistakable. If I am to be a tear allows it to roll down the cheek of one who cries to feel the joy of finding and joy of being loved by you. And if I be in the eyes of the sufferer, help me year tarnish the glass of his hopes or the horizon of his mind. Help me to wash the hearts of those who do not know you and clear the vision of those who seek you incessantly. Lord, help me and meet in the final green of the leaves, in the glare of noon, in the dim light of dawn, the tender smile of the children and the pleasant sensation of the soft breeze on my skin and fresh dew on the grass the morning and in every corner where I carry the force of vitality you have given me. Amen. By: Alejandro Martinez Rutto.
