Call to the Angels

"Sky Hearts"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera
Call to the Angels
by Atlanta Marie Carrera

Angels of Mercy,
Compassion and Love,
tend to our needs,
and open our hearts.

Angels of Healing,
easing the pain.
Angels of Prayer,
surround us as one.

Angels of Song,
speak to my soul.
Angels of Hope,
reach deep within.

Guardian Angel,
lift me up high,
joining with others,
in glory and light.

Rest Now and Find Peace

Rest now and find peace.

Come to the gardens with me.
Rest now and find peace.

Angels attend to your needs.
Rest now and find peace.

Leave your troubles behind.
Rest now and find peace.

New life begins in my arms.
Rest now and find peace.

Open Your Heart

"Heart Clouds"
By Atlanta Marie Carrera
Open your heart,
and set yourself free.
Release your love,
move closer to me.

Beyond our words,
your spirit’s found.
Through silent hugs,
our souls are bound.

Follow your heart,
wherever it leads,
sharing your love,
with those in need.

God knows your heart,
your essence within,
so open your heart,
by trusting in Him.


Open your heart,
let love flow in.
Open your heart,
let love flow out.

Kissed by an Angel

"Angel's Heart"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera
Spirit of love
heart filled with peace

Kissed by an angel
kissed by an angel

Showered in light
touching your soul

Kissed by an angel
kissed by an angel

Weightless and free
Joyful in song

Kissed by an angel
kissed by an angel

Timeless compassion
never ending grace

River of Hope

"Golden Heart"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera
Hope flows like a river
inside your heart,
a fire in the water,
desire burning bright.

Draw strength from its current.
Find love in its depths.
Life’s joys in the ripples,
bobbing up and down.

Reflections of sunshine,
bathing you with light.
A babbling of meaning,
your spirit hears.

Float with the river,
through every bend,
as it carries your soul
beyond river’s end.

I prayed

"Communion Prayers"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera
I prayed for strength.
Heavy burdens came my way.
Now I am strong.

I prayed for courage.
Then I faced my greatest fears.
I'm no longer scared.

I prayed forgiveness.
Not til I forgave
did I feel forgiven.

I prayed when lonely,
and in my despair,
I felt God there.

I prayed for love,
and when I let go,
God's love came to me.

Angels in the night sky

"Cosmic Wonder"
By Atlanta Marie Carrera
Angels in the night sky
Breaking free
Joining others in light
Guiding me

Cosmic wonder abounds
Praising You
Stars in Heaven receive
Open wide

Dreams from earth will take flight
Soaring high
Safely now in His care
Resting there
Oh, resting there

Yellow Flower

"Yellow Flower" By Atlanta Marie Carrera
Petals from a yellow flower
Shining like the rays of sun
Energize and give us power
Spirits rise and we are one

Just Pray

"Sunburst" by Atlanta Marie Carrera
In silence we hear
the whispers of God.
In stillness we feel
His angels hold us.

Be silent, be still,
and pray, just pray

What shall I do?
What shall I say?
When troubles surround,
just pray, just pray

We empty ourselves,
so God feeds our souls.
We thirst for His grace,
and living waters flow.

Come empty, come open,
and pray, just pray.

God knows our hearts.
God knows the way.
Trust in his answers,
and pray, just pray.

Candle Light

"Candle Light" by Atlanta Marie Carrera
How Bright is my Candle?

How bright is my candle,
my light from within?
Does it spark me to action?
Does it keep me from sin?

Can you see it in daylight,
when things are alright?
Does it come out in darkness
to conquer the night?

Do I hide it from others,
or make my light known?
Is it joined by a bonfire,
or does it stand alone?

Does it reach those who need it?
Will my flame keep them warm?
Will it comfort the heartbroken,
and protect them from harm?

Is it bright like a lighthouse?
Can it lead others home?
Does it burn with compassion
and have a life of its own?

Can it teach little children?
Will it bring joy their way?
Does it light up with hope,
spreading fire through the day?

Is it a shining example
for others to see?
How bright is my candle,
this reflection of me?

How bright is my candle
can you see my light glow?
How bright is my candle
Does it continue to grow?

New Day

Fill your heart with the new day.
Hopes that rise with the sun's rays.

Dreams as wide as light.
Strength and peace shine bright.

Spread joy and pray.
Be the new day!

Blue Rain

"Blue Rain"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera
Let the water run through me,
right down to my soul,
til it touches my spirit,
and makes my heart grow.

Old wounds are healed now,
all the dirt washed away,
in a shower of blue rain,
flowing out from within.

I can feel newness coming,
as my fears melt like snow.
with a wave it engulfs me,
breathing life to my day.

My eyes are wide open,
to a glorious sight,
the sun’s rays that warm me,
spread light through my veins.

Embrace the blue rain.
Refresh and Renew.
Embrace the blue rain.
God pours it for you!

Rain & Sunshine

Today is rain & sunshine.
"Rainbow Angels"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera
The clouds are open wide.
Looking for my rainbow
with God by my side.

Seek and you shall find Him.
See the Lord on every mountain.
Glory in His day.
Don’t hide your light away.

Today holds tears and laughter
emotions, and song.
Reach within your soul
and bring the world along.

Don’t try to stop the ocean.
Just ride upon its wave.
Shout "Glory!" in the storm,
pray "Peace" upon still waters.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
for Life is full of LIFE.

God Loves You

"Green Branches" by Atlanta Marie Carrera
I know God loves you
because your light sparkles
like stars from Heaven
above your head.

A child can see it,
a beacon guiding
oh faithful servant
on missions from God.

A timely meeting,
no chance encounter,
oh earthly angel
of God’s great plan.

The steps you've shown me
along life’s journey
bring me closer
to God.
