Holy Thursday - Adoration Prayer

Adoration is a moment of silence to experience and be with God.

As of Holy Thursday this year, 17 March 2014, I was sitting in silence during adoration and a silent prayer spontaneously was said somewhere in my heart. I felt like it was a really good prayer and so, I thought that I might share it with the world. It was in Malay but it'll try my best to translate it to the English version.

Malay (original prayer):
Ya Tuhan, aku hambaMu yang sungguh berdosa. Kasihanilah aku dan bawalah aku mengikut jalan suciMu agar perjalanan suciku itu akan menempatkanku di dalam kerajaanMu di syurga.

English translation:
Oh, my God, I am your sinful servant. Have mercy on me and bring me to follow Your path of holiness so that by following Your holiness I will have a place in Your kingdom in heaven.

I think it's a great prayer and you can say it anytime, anywhere.
God bless you.

Taking Off in Life

In my opinion, the best part of a flight is the take-off. So it is with your life. ~Cynthia Pinga, 2014~

I just love it when the plane takes off. I think it's so cool... And when I'm up in the air, it's like "Woo-hoo!!! I'm off the ground, finally!" But before being off the ground, it does not mean that it will be a smooth take-off. It could be a rough one. Some people even feel so scared due to the drastic acceleration for take-off. But once you're up in the air, you just feel so nice. It's like you entered a different  dimension.

Well. like it or not, this may be the case for your life as well. Many of us want to achieve success, we want our lives to take off, we want to be in the sky. But often, we are not ready for a drastic change, an increasing momentum. No one said being in the sky is easy. You'll have to be ready with what that comes with it.

So, if you want your life to be flying high, don't expect a smooth take-off. Once you take-off and reach your destination, that would be your best life ever. But remember, you must be ready with whatever that you have to face for you to take-off.

All the best!
