Hello friend,

Flourish in God’s Grace Keep the faith

This is a view out my dining room window. Spring is a flourishing. Live life to the fullest.

Here is to my writing craft and yours too. Prayers are always needed. Thank you!!!

It’s great to have you back here thank you. Today I will be talking about five different prayers that I use when contemplating my craft. Not so much contemplating it but life gets in the way of things and can be very distracted. So, I came up with ways that I focus and work with my faith. I have just five of my prayers mentioned, but I do have more. Now I will share them with you:

5 Prayers to share 

1 rosary

2 St. Michael’s prayer

3 Psalm 23

4 page 63 from the Imitation of Christ book

5 Psalm 37:3

Short Explanation 

1 rosary: every day I recite the rosary for that day it is traditional prayed on. If I wake up in the middle of the night I start reciting it for that day. Also, want to mention the rosary is not just for Catholics anyone can recite them and they are beautiful and I believe this is one of my faith sustaining prayers and life/faith/positive attitudes I have made for myself.

2 St. Michael the Archangel’s prayer: PRAYER TO

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Excerpt from EWTN Eternal Word Network website

As a Catholic, I believe in intercessory prayer. For example, I ask you to pray for me and you say sure I will. That for me is what I do is asked Saint Michael to intercede for me. Along with what I do in the rosary that’s how I do the rosary sometimes asked people (spirit world… ministering spirits, holy angels, holy saints…) to intercede for me and others if someone asked to do that.

The Lord, the Psalmist’s Shepherd.

A Psalm of David.

23 The Lord is my shepherd,
there is nothing I lack.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.


4 page 63: Imitation of Christ: excerpt: how detrimental it is for us to neglect the purpose of our calling and to divert our minds to things that are not our concern. Good one for me a lot of the time.

5 Psalm 37:3 “put your trust in the Lord and do good, that you may dwell in the land in be secure”


This is a summary of some of the prayers I say throughout the day. At part two of the post will go into more detail. Hope you enjoy this. These are beautiful prayers and wanted to share them with you let me know what you think of them how they like them. I would love to hear from you.

“My Faith Sustains Me.” donna maria de Guglielmo

Hope all is well with all. Love to hear what you think and you can suggest what you would like to hear maybe more of.

God bless you all.

God Loves You!!!

God is paradise. We are His to soar in His grace and mercy.



  1. I just read The Imitation of Christ over the Lenten season – and the part that you quoted struck me, too! Far too often, I waste my time and energy trying to control things that I should really stay out of. When I’m concerned about someone else’s life, I try to say a prayer for them instead of meddling. Then, return to the responsibilities that God has given to me – like my craft. (Notice that I say that I “try” – I’m not often successful!)

    Thank you for sharing these prayers, Donna Marie! I needed the reminder that a healthy prayer life is fundamental to healthy minds, bodies, hearts, and souls – and writing!

    • Thank you Christina well said and you enthusiasm and encouragement for me. Yes we need the fundamentals of life… as I say I like things simple. blessings
