I need God’s grace; I crave His perspective of things below the heavens, and tremble when his presence becomes manifest.

I wonder how to live close enough to  what is important and how to attend to what is most important to  the Lord our Father, without feeding anything that is not most conductive to elevated health and helpfulness at the highest level.

I ask for divine fortitude to travel this journey called hope, with my brothers and sisters. Oh, that I may always be  most mindful of where I begin and where I end, where the human ends as the Divine encircles us all. Oh Lord, bid me not boast in my understanding; I know that it is in you alone that ,I can we find understanding and in your hands I entrust my humble understanding and let you validate all thing – We understand in part, we know in part and we speak in part –

As Divine fortitude permits, Oh Lord, bid me be found diligent in finding my part, owning my part, saying my part and doing my part, and making my life available to others as best as I know and as best as I am able. I know this full well, this is where I will be held accountable at the highest level.

Prayerfully,
Daniel Zopoula

About Daniel Zopoula

Daniel is a is a provocative leader in Christian Practice. A long-distance runner in the struggle for justice, Daniel's journey is rooted in a rich African tradition of soulcraft that put a premium on Ancestor appreciation, gentle embrace of others, cultural manners and social justice. Though deeply wounded and perennially scarred by the traumatic circumstances that paved the realities of his upbringings, Daniel emerged with great dignity, decency and integrity, love, courage and humour; choosing social advocacy rather than a life of blind avarice and personal subservience. The sum realities of pervasive terror, chronic trauma and vicious stigma that was shot through the "soul-making" of young Daniel yielded his true passion to profoundly influence, lead and inspire people from all walks of life into positive change and bearing witness to love and justice. Daniel's story is a tale of a man courageous enough to be fully human, living and loving out loud: "When your life doesn't belong to you, survival is not required," he says. Daniel writes and speaks internationally on Christian Practice, Spiritual & Emotional Leadership, Inspiration, Personal & Organizational health, Family Systems, Trauma, and Emotional Wellness. Daniel is a personal growth, and spiritual health consultant; a Life Coach, Spiritual Adviser, Author, Speaker, Activist.
