Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes



Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

EVERY DAY PRAYER

Dear Lord, I thank You for this day,
I thank You for my being able to see
and to hear this morning.
I'm blessed because 
You are a forgiving God and
an understanding God.
You have done so much for me and 
You keep on blessing me.
Forgive me this day for everything 
I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you.
I ask now for Your forgiveness. 
Please keep me safe
from all danger and harm.
Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each and every day
to clear my mind so that I can hear from You...
Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper over things 
I have no control over. 
And give me the best response when 
I'm pushed beyond my limits.
I know that when I can't pray, 
You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak...
Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. 
I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way. 
I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.
I pray for those who don't know You intimately.
I pray for those that don't believe.
But I thank You that I believe that God changes people and God changes things.
I pray for all my brothers and sisters, for each and every family member in their households.
I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes; that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.
I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God.
Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight…
I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees it in Jesus ' name. 
God, I love you and I need you, Come into my heart, please...
Amen

If An Angel Is Someone

If an angel is someone
who's so filled with love,
it's a gift that they constantly share
If an angel is someone
who looks out for others
and gives them a nudge here or there,
If an angel is someone
who touches your life
with a heart that's both joyful and wise,
Then even though you
don't have halo or wings,
you're an angel in human disguise!

STEP BY STEP

He does not lead me year by year
Nor even day by day
But step by step my path unfolds;
My Lord directs my way.
Tomorrow’s plans I do not know,
I only know this minute;
But He will say,
“This is the way, By faith now walk ye in it.”
And I am glad that it is so.
Today’s enough to bear;
And when tomorrow comes,
His grace Shall far exceed its care.
What need to worry then, or fret?
The God who gave
His Son Holds all my moments in
His Hand And gives them one by one.

"When You Pray, God Listens"

When you pray to God above,
those prayers are covered with His love.
He hears each prayer you send His way
and guides the steps you take each day..
He counts each hair upon your head
and knows each drop that you have bled.
He knows the robin as it flies
and hears a baby when it cries.
Your sorrows are His sorrows too.
He always knows when you are blue.
He wants to dry those falling tears
and take away all of your fears.
God always listens when you pray,
hears each and every word you say.
He always answers this I know.
it's just, sometimes, He must say "no."
The time may not be right, just yet,
certain requirements may not be met.
God sees the future and what it brings
while we are limited in all these things.
He always knows what's best for you
and wants your dreams to all come true.
He always listens when you pray
and hears your heart's desire each day.
