“Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” 

Father in heaven,

Your children come to you with trust that you will help them and answer all their prayers with your love and kindness. It might not be the things they want or what they’ve asked for, but with confidence, we know that you have prepared something great for all those who put their trust in you. You have prepared them Lord, even before they ask of you. Let their prayers then, come to your presence and we beseech you to listen to them. May you never abandon those who come to you, may you hasten to their help in times of trials. We also pray that you continue to increase their faith with the help of your Holy Spirit. We ask you, through Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.


Enjoy the tranquil sounds of the water in the reflecting pools outside the Meditation Chapel in the Upper Gardens.
