The Prayer Garden


One of my favorite corners inside the campus, where I'm studying now, is the Prayer Garden.


Yes, we have it here! Isn't it nice for schools to have one?


It is indeed a God's gift for everyone living inside the campus. I come here in the mornings after I jog.


It's a little, quiet garden where anyone can come and find a corner to pray or just be in silence before God.


It has cozy benches....


....where one can sit undisturbed....


 It has screened Nipa huts for group prayer too.


 I've come here many times but most of the time I just walk around the circling pathway and be silent before God. I'm learning the art of silent retreat, for in the past I've spoken more to Him than I've listened.


Here, I've only sighed and He understood. And in my quiet moments, His voice is heard.

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;
Psalm 3:7

Hello my Ruth~ What a lovely place. I am also learning (trying) to be silent before the Lord. He has much to say if we will only listen. Makes me think of Ephesians 3 - "that we would be filled with the fullness of God." Just the thought of that seems so big to me.

Thank you for your kind tea talk. I wanted to comment and participate but blogger was not cooperating. I also had the Mother's Tea that I hosted yesterday. It was a success and I will post all about it next thursday for our tea time together.

I am sure you are counting the days, I know I would be. Continue on, God is faithful to finish the work He has started in us. That's what this life is all about ~ God and us.

Blessings to you.

What a beautiful prayer garden. I know you are inspired here.

I just read your last post too. I didn't realize there were so many superstitious beliefs about Christ's death and resurrection, and that some believe that He dies again each year. What a well written post.
Blessings,
Marcia
