遵行神的旨意Doing the Will of God

親愛的阿爸父神:
祢的旨意至高無上,孩子樂意遵祢而行。
然而,有時候路途晦暗不明,
孩子沒有把握是否行在祢的旨意中。
但我深信,一顆渴望討祢喜悅的心,
確實討祢喜悅。
父啊,請將此渴望深植我心中。
祢的僕人使女的生命見證,
如同雲彩圍繞著我們。
他們直奔祢所命定的道,毫不猶豫,
他們以生命為愛祭獻給祢,毫無保留。
父啊,請將如此無私、順服的生命,
做成在我身上。
教導祢這個剛起步的孩子,
在平凡生活中活出順服的生命。
治死我的「自我中心」,
讓我的目光從「己」轉向「基督」。
讓我在所做的一切事中漠視掌聲,
讓我以謙卑及至誠的愛與人相交。
父啊,請幫助我。
奉主聖名,阿們!
「我是主的使女,情願照祢的話成就在我身上。」 路加1:38
(在陳教師歸回天家的第四週年,謹以此禱文懷念恩師。)

Dear Heavenly Father:
Your will is supreme.
I delight in doing your will.
Sometimes, however, I cannot see the road ahead,
and I am uncertain if I am walking in your will.
But I believe that the desire to please you
does indeed pleases you.
Father, please plant that desire deep in my heart.
The living testimonies of your servants and
handmaidens surround us like a great cloud.
They ran in the path of your command without hesitation.
They offered their lives as love-offering without reservation.
Father, may such self-less life of radical obedience be formed in me.
Teach me, a beginner on this journey, to live a life of obedience
in the ordinary circumstances of my daily life.
Put to death my self-centerness.
Let my gaze turn from “self” to “Christ”.
Let me be indifferent to applauses in all I do.
Grant me humility and genuine love toward others.
Father, please help me.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
“I am the Lord’s servant. May it be to me as you have said.” Luke 1:38
(This prayer is written to honor my beloved teacher, Miss Flora Chen, on the 4th anniversary of her return to our heavenly home.)
「我寧願死在神的旨意中,也不願活在祂的旨意之外。」
“I rather die in God’s will than to live outside of it.”

擁抱人生Embrace Life

所有的事物,不論是多麼令人苦惱,若喜樂地接受,它們必然會快速地帶我們邁向聖潔。
All things, however troublesome they are, they will, if accepted gladly, lead us surely and quickly toward holiness.

Jean-Pierre de Caussade

親愛的阿爸父神!
懇求祢將祢的眼光賜給孩子,光明和黑暗在祢看都是一樣。讓孩子也能以祢的眼光看我的人生。
不重視健康勝於疾病
不重視富足勝於缺乏
不重視成功勝於失敗
不重視讚賞勝於貶抑
不重視歡笑勝於哭泣
順境與逆境在祢看都是一樣。
父啊!求祢幫助我, 以喜樂的心,擁抱人生的每一個境遇。
願每一個十字架吸引我更親近祢。
願每一個境遇成為祢手中神聖的工具, 把我煉淨,把我陶冶,把我雕琢,
讓祢的愛子耶穌基督早日成形在我內。
奉主名求,阿們。
我們曉得萬事都互相效力,叫愛神的人得益處,…祂預先所知道的人,就預先
定下效法祂兒子的模樣。

羅馬書八:28-29

Dear Father God:
Give me your vision so I can see with your eyes.
For you darkness and light are alike.
Help me see my life from your perspective .
So I do not treasure health over illness,
abundance over neediness,
success over failure,
praise over reproof laughter over weeping
Good times and bad times are alike
in your eyes.
Lord, help me embrace all things gladly.
May every cross draw me ever closer to you.
May every experience be your divine instrument.
May they be used to purify me,
to mold me, and to form me into the likeness of your Son Jesus Christ.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, …. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son..
(Romans 8:28-29)
