I don’t remember what year that was when I first saw a prayer card (elders called it stampita) that has this poem entitled, “My Prayer” by C. L. Shields. The card was just inserted under a glass top on my mother’s dressing table. Many years pass, I used the same dressing table during college, and noticed the prayer card. I took it, copied the whole poem on paper, and kept it since then. I tried to memorize the poem by heart and recite it to myself as my personal daily prayer. Whenever I’m troubled, I always recite the first four lines in prayer, my personal mantra. I couldn’t find the original prayer card anymore (by now, it could have been 50 years old or more). I still have the written copy of the poem. Thanks to Canva, I was able to recreate an image fit for this classic poetry. Feel free to share and let it be our prayer every day.
