Something Has Happened – Henri Nouwen Society

Words taken from Prayers Ability by Poet Greta Zwaan,

Prayer in the time of trouble brings peace to the weary soul,
Prayer in the time of triumph acknowledges God's in control.
Prayer is never irrelevant; it is essential to our life,…

Prayer is a type of thanksgiving, a greeting to God for (God's) grace,
Prayer is the essence of morning, the fragrance of life to embrace.
Prayer is a holy connection, a quiet time at God's feet,
In prayer we acknowledge dependence, a place where God and (me) meet.

Prayer is the means of sustaining a faith that at times can grow weak,
The power of prayer is enriching, uplifting to hear our God speak… even in the still small voice…

When all other avenues falter, and (our) ingenuity fails,
God, in (God's) infinite wisdom, is the source who always prevails.
Nothing can bring such contentment as spending an hour in prayer,
God is a most willing listener and God is eternally there…
