Blessings and hugs gentle reader. Thank you for taking a moment out of your busy day to pause and visit my site. I trust you enjoy the mix of yoga, health and well-being articles on offer to inspire, inform and uplift your energy so you can be more of who you were born to be.
This week’s Prayer of the Week, Effective Silence is from a delightful book of prayers I received from a dear yoga student, Jacky Chernett. Jacky is a beautiful soul and our yoga lessons flow with movement, breath and spiritual blessings. Jacky is the UK’s first ordained woman cantor and even though I was the “teacher”, I learnt so much about not only the Jewish faith but all faiths through Jacky. If you have time, take a moment and visit Jacky’s website and be inspired.
As a gift, Jacky gave me a book of prayers “The Gentle Weapon-Prayers for Everyday and Not-So-Everyday Moments” based on the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov. If you would like to learn more about the life, work and spiritual teachings of Rebbe Nachman, you can find out more about him here.
The Gentle Weapon is one of the prayer books I regularly pick up and choose a prayer to gain inspiration and comfort from.
I hope you enjoyed today’s prayer of the week as much as I do.
God of wisdom,
teach me to relate to others
with words they need to hear,
that will never
Teach me, dear God
the most effective words
are no words at all.
Teach me how and when
with that most potent gift
Isn’t that a moving prayer? Can you imagine how peaceful the world would be if we all listened with silence. And if you are touched by this week’s prayer, I’d be honoured if you shared your thoughts and inspirations in the comment box below.
Each week, I publish a prayer of poem of the week. If you enjoyed today’s poem and wish to receive future poems and blog posts, simply subscribe to my email list and receive posts as soon as they are published. Thank you.
Have a wonderful day
Thanks for sharing the love
