compassion

Spiritual Directors International receives many prayers for the people and issues that create a concern and cry of the heart. Prayer also flows from kindness, love, and compassion. A prayer can be simple and contain appreciation, presence, and gratefulness.

Meister Ekhart wrote, "If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is thank you, that will suffice."

Kindly join with Spiritual Directors International to offer prayer--wherever and however your tradition and heart guide you.

To understand the world
knowledge is not enough,
you must
   see it,
      touch it
         live in its presence
         and drink the vital heat
         of existence in the very heart
            of reality.
                                   -- Brendan O'Malley

“I see you,” Jake says to the tall, blue-skinned, native woman, Neytiri, in the futuristic, sci-fi epic movie Avatar. The greeting implies a connection beyond seeing with only the eyes. Much like the Indian Sanskrit greeting, “Namasté” which means “I bow reverentially to you,” the phrase “I see you” is used throughout the film to communicate a deep respect for the whole being. Not only does Jake learn to truly see Neytiri, but he also learns that deep-seeing leads to revering the interconnectedness in all of life.

I ask for your supportive prayer as I prepare for left knee surgery on 3-3-10. I have been & continue to trust in our loving GOD. The knee is important but it is surrounded by a live sciatica nerve & other complications. I am trusting in the Infinte One to take care of it all. I feel his Presence deeply but sometimes lose my focus. Sending Light & Energy my way will be appreciative from all of you. Blessings, Joan

Please pray for me to forgive God, myself, and my parents due to years of child/teen abuse. May God heal me of depression, anger, bitterness, and feeling unloved. Secondly, may God supply financial help/work. Thank you-Samuel

Would like your prayers for my son in law, who has Glioblastoma, which is one type of brain cancer. He has a wife and 3 children, who are all having a difficult time as they watch the changes in him.
They know God is with them, but the journey is still very hard. My daughter and son-in-law's children are age ten and under. Thank you very much for this opportunity for prayer.
A friend of mine just returned today from your conference in Ireland. Can't wait to hear about it.
God bless.

I have just been told that my second part-time job will be reduced significantly. I am making an attempt to stay current on all of my bills. I pray that God will provide for me like He does with the birds. I know in my heart He will. Please, Lord, help me release the fear...the fear of not having enough, the fear of the unknown, and the fear of change.
