prayer-poems that touch and heal – volume 1

January 26, 2023

Excerpts from the mini-book ‘foodforthesoul’, by Bernie V. Lopez (eastwind). Hard copy available by


He brings you strength in your weariness
He heals you in your infirmities
He is the deluge in your drought
you hear His whispers amid the roar of thunder
so silently He is in you amidst your storms

rooms of the soul

there is a large room in your soul
where anyone is welcome
strangers and new acquaintances

there is a smaller room in your soul
where only friends are welcome
people you like and can talk to

there is an even smaller room
where only loved ones
and special friends can enter

people who can understand
your innermost longings
to whom you can bare deep secrets

there is the smallest room of all
that extends to the horizon
and the outer rim of the gal­axy

in this vast tiny room
where there are no secrets
there is only you, God and destiny

Cover prayer poem in JPEG shown above is in text form below –

forget about your eyes
see with your heart
forget about your ears
listen with your soul

only then can you discern
what you have known all the while
which wise men cannot comprehend
but children can see so plainly

kalimutan mo ang iyong mata
tumingin gamit ang iyong puso
kalimutan mo ang iyong tenga
makinig gamit ang iyong diwa
saka mo lang mababatid
na matagal mo na palang alam ang mga ito
na hindi maunawaan ng mga marurunong
ngunit napakalinaw para sa mga bata
