POEMS: “The Most Perfect Prayer”(Quote: Gotthold Ephraim Lessing) Poem by Trina Graves


The Most Perfect Prayer

Title Quote: Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

Prayers are said the world over
In a variety of different ways
Many pleading for assistance
To ease their saddened days

Most are taught as little children
Prayers to say before they sleep
Generations passing down words
Children’s Souls, they aim to keep

For some, prayers are repeated
Words they learned ‘off by heart’
Repetition brings them soothing relief
Releasing thought right from the start

Even those who do not believe
In the existence of a Greater Power
Will ‘pray’ in their own way to receive
Throughout life, a Blessings Shower

Whatever you’re version of prayer
I respect your truth and your way
I, like all, have my own beliefs
I follow my own path, wherever it lay

In deepest truth there is no right or wrong
The intention of the prayer is the key
Our beliefs throughout life are just perfect
In each moment, for who we came to be

Prayers are uttered to many ‘Gods’
Time and religion changes the name
But in Essence, they are all One
And we too, are of the same

One single grateful thought raised
To Heaven is the most perfect prayer
Feeling the prayer is already answered
Will manifest blessings everywhere

Like many I believe that Gratitude
Appreciating all my Blessings each day
Is the ultimate communication of prayer
Thankfulness felt in every word I say

I Commune with the Forces-Of-Creation
The All-That-Is, Source-Energy of Love
I surrender my Heart and Soul to the flow
And unite my own Light with God above

    Thank you for sharing Amira ❤


    1. Thank you Trina for writing this poem! Another beautiful expression, bringing light and understanding. The importance of intention, so much more than the words we say, and gratitude to express our faith that we know it is so. These were not things that were NOT always taught, sometimes it was just memorizing prayers, that may not have really touched our hearts, and a prayer has to come from our hearts. Lovely inspiration!!! ❤

    I agree! Prayer has to come from the heart ! God always answers are prayers in His time and His way, which is always what is best for us! His answer may not always be a YES, but often a NO is what we really need! It takes faith to trust that He knows us better than we know ourselves so His answer is always the RIGHT one!! I thank God for you my friends today and always ! So much Love sent your way! Linda.

    1. Thank you so much Linda! Yes, I agree, sometimes we ask for things that may not be the best for us. It’s best to just ask for guidance and trust that the outcome will be for our best, because it’s always for our best>
      Love and blessings and a lovely Thanksgiving!!! ❤
