Inviting All The Brave…

11 03 2011

Last week, I saw this poster in one of the bookshops and  since I’m captivated by its message, I took its picture with a permission of course from the the saleslady on duty. The content of this prayer is so inspiring and challenging.  Let me share it with you:


A Prayer Of Courage

Disturb us Oh Lord,

When we are too please with ourselves,

When our dreams have come true

because we dreamed too little,

When we arrived in safety

because we sailed too close to the shore.


Disturb us Oh Lord,

when with the abundance of the things we possess

we have lost our taste for the water of life.

When having fallen in love with the time

we have ceased to dream of eternity.

And in our efforts to build a new earth

have allowed Your vision for a new heaven

to grow dim.


Stir us Oh Lord, to dare more boldly,

to venture on wider seas,

where storms shall show Thy mastery,

where losing sight of land we shall find the stars.


In the Name of Him who pushed back

the horizon of our hopes

and invited the brave to follow him,



See you at the road my friend.

God be praised.

RUNNING IN MY MIND: If God’s willing, I will run a 50 kms this coming Thursday March 17, 2011 from Km 0 to Km 50 (Luneta to Naic Cavite). This will be a heat training from 7am up to 2pm, after my work.
