Gold Vermeil Prayer Boxes

Love the look of gold, but can't afford a solid gold prayer box?  Gold vermeil (pronounced "ver-may") may be the answer!  

Vermeil is the application of a layer of gold on a piece of sterling silver jewelry. Standard gold plating is about 2 millionths of an inch of gold over base metal, not silver.  In contrast, vermeil is approximately 100 millionths of an inch of gold over sterling silver. The effect is gold jewelry that will be long lasting, is affordable, and will not rub off like gold plated jewelry.

Never machine polish your gold vermeil jewelry.  Simply polish it with a soft polishing cloth and it will look beautiful for years!

On Prayer

"One single grateful thought raised to heaven is the most perfect prayer."

G. E. Lessing
German Dramatist
(1729 - 1781)

 

"Prayer is not an old woman's idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action."

"Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart."

Mahatma Gandhi
Indian Philosopher
(1869-1948)

"Prayer is an important practice that serves to internalize the ideals of the Buddhist path."

G. R. Lewis
Buddhist Faith
Fellowship Founder

 

"Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God's gift of himself. "

Mother Teresa
(1910 - 1997)

"To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing."

Rev. Martin Luther King
Minister and Civil Rights Leader
(1929 - 1968)

"No prayer is complete without presence." 


Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi
Persian Sufi Mystic 
  (1207-1273) 

"In prayer, it is better to have heart without words, than words without heart."

John Bunyan
Puritan Minister and Writer
(1628-1688)

"Our prayers must mean something to us if they are to mean anything to God."

Maltbie Davenport Babcock
