Prayer in God's Presence

O Lord, You search me and you know me; you know my resting and my rising,

You read my thoughts from afar; you mark when I walk or lie down.

You know every detail of my conduct. All my ways lie open to you.

O where can I go to escape Your Spirit; or where can I flee from your face?

If I climb the heavens, you are there; if I lie in the grave, you are there.

If I take the wings of the dawn, and dwell at the sea's furthest end,

Even there your hand would lead me; your right hand would hold me fast.

For it was you who created my being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.

I thank you for the wonders of my being; for the wonders of all Your creation. (Psalm 139)                                                                                             
                                                                                              
How wonderful is this place

it is nothing less than the house of God and the gate of Heaven (Genesis 28:17).

Where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matt. 18:20).

The temple of God is holy; which you are.

Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Who lives in you. (1 Cor.3: 17).

Truly Yahweh was in this place and i didn't know it. (Genesis 28: 16).

The Kingdom of God is within you. (Lk. 17:21).

Do I not fill Heaven and Earth? (Jer. 23: 24)

The presence of God is the soul and support of the Christian life. (St. John Baptist De la Salle).

Live Jesus in our hearts Forever!
