Soothing Sunday

Meditation and prayer - not so different to my mind - both should bring you peace.

My favorite hymn is "Sweet Hour of Prayer" - and here is a lovely instrumental rendition that serves both prayer and meditation...

May all beings everywhere, whether near or far, whether known to me or unknown, be happy. May they be well. May they be peaceful. May they be free.

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father’s throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief,
And oft escaped the tempter’s snare,
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!
