Spiritual Food (A Prayer)

Early in my own recovery efforts I found a book that helped me pray when I had no breath for it.  Root In God’s Love - Meditations on Biblical Texts for People in Recovery, by Dale and Juanita Ryan. 


One of my favorite prayers is found on page 19, I share it with you with prayers that your journey provides you with nourishment and healing…


Nourish me, Lord.

Mourish me with your love.

Calm the frantic feelings within me.

Grow a sense of security within me.

I want to be able to sit quietly.

Like a weaned child.


Secure in your love.



And the passage of scripture associated with this inspired prayer?


I have stilled and quieted my soul;

Like a weaned child with its mother,

Like a weaned child is

My soul within me.

Psalm 131:1-2
