foodforthesoul – prayer-poems that inspire and heal – volume 6


Excerpts from the book ‘foodforthesoul’

After reading a prayer-poem, pause and immerse yourself in the Lord. Talk to Him casually. He is now beside you. You can ask for healing. He is the ultimate foodforthesoul Who nourishes and heals us all.

Volume 6 – February 16, 2023


the vendor victimized an unsuspecting tourist
selling him a trinket at five times the price
a young girl came next, smiling at him
not knowing the price of the doll
she plunged her hand into her purse
and offered an open hand full of coins
which fell all over and the vendor picked them up
placed them back on the open hand
and gave the doll away for nothing

there is an angel in the shrewdest demon
when you open a door wide
you take a risk but sometimes
demons turn into angels before they enter
your trust can melt predators
if you want trust you must give it first
if you want love you must give it first

damien did not see a leper
he saw only a radiant soul
how many lepers
have we missed in our lives?
find yourself one fast
there is very little time

ang nakita ni damien ay hindi isang may ketong
kundi isang nakakasilaw na kaluluwa
ilang may ketong ang nilampasan mo
sa iyong buhay?
bilisan mong maghanap
habang may oras pa

Copy of introductory prayer poems(s) below.

do not let your left hand know
what your right hand gives away
giving in secret gives the true reward
giving for the camera gives an empty reward

huwag mong payagan malaman ng kaliwang kamay
ang ginagawa ng kanan na nagbibigay
ang magbigay nang patago ang may tunay na gantimpala
ang magbigay para sa camera ay nabigyan na
