Prayer according to Isaiah 9, Verse 5 for Smallgroups, Service and Devotion

Prayer according to Isaiah 9, Verse 5

Wonderful Counselor,
my heart is full of questions.
I long for insight
and for your wisdom.
Within me so many conflicting thoughts.
Heal me, God.

Strong God,
I feel drained,
the colors of my life seem washed out.
From all sides I am of demands, opinions and constraints.
Free myself from the influence of my fellow men
and give me innerpeace.
Heal me, God.

Eternal Father,
I wish deeply to find a home.
My heart longs for security and comfort
– I would like to finally arrive
at the destination of my longing.
Hold me in your strong arms
let me breathe deeply.
Heal me, God.

Prince of peace,
so often I am driven by my ambition
and the apparent necessities of this world.
Let me know that I am your king’s child,
and no one is entitled to my time,
my heart and my longing.
You rule my life
and lead me with a sure hand towards eternity.
Heal me, God.


For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9, Verse 5

I would be very happy if you use and share my prayers in your family, smallgroup or service. Please refer to me and use them only in a private, non commercial manner, thank you.


Leichtigkeit entdecken

Herbststrauß mit Zinnien


Möge dann und wann
deine Seele aufleuchten
im Festkleid der Freude.

Möge dann und wann
deine Last leicht werden
und dein Schritt beschwingt
wie Tanz.

Möge dann und wann
ein Lied aufsteigen
vom Grunde deines Herzens,
das Leben zu grüßen
wie die Amsel am Morgen.

Möge dann und wann
der Himmel
über deine Schwelle treten.


Antje Sabine Naegeli




May now and then
Your soul light up
Filled with festive Joy.

May now and then
Your load become light
And you have
A spring in your step
As in a dance.

May now and then
Asong rise up
From the bottom of your heart
To welcome life
Like a blackbird the morning.

May now and then
Cross your threshold.
