My Prayer

Dear God,

Let me come to know the joy of opening my heart to the love and deep and abiding blessings that are never withheld from me when I come to you with a humble and sincere desire for what is good and true. 

Let me recognize that there is no such thing as death, only eternal life. Purify my soul and grant me the courage to stand on the side of love without fear of the consequences and with a steadfast and unwavering faith that nothing and no one can ever destroy my soul. 

Grant me love in the face of hatred and let me rise to respond only with love, strength and dignity, never to attack or harm the brothers and sisters who may wish to do me harm whether it be physically, verbally or emotionally. I know that to hurt another is to hurt myself. 

Grant me safe spaces in which to feel and move through all of my emotions of fear, anger and grief so that I may release them from my soul and arrive at the freedom, joy and well-being that is waiting for me. 

May I feel safe and protected wherever I go and may I know that there is a God that loves me and will never withhold that love when I seek it in all the earnest and sincere longing of my heart. Restore my innocence and allow me to see the innocence and beauty within all of your creations, unconditional of the free will choices they may make. 

Give me the will and the courage to look inside my own heart - the courage to devote myself to investigating and uncovering any feelings or desires that are contrary to unconditional love. I know that my true power lies within myself and that in order to change the world, I must first begin with myself. 

Lastly give me peace in my heart, restful sleep and refuge in your comforting embrace.  Hold me in the light of your love every moment of every day of my life. 

And so it is and so it shall be.
