A Prayer For The Living


Break in me whatever needs to be broken.
Fix my hope of every being fixed.
Use me. Draw every ounce of creativity out of me.
Help me live a radically unique life, forever forging a never-before-trodden path in the forest.
Show me how to love more deeply than I ever thought possible.
Whatever I’m still turning away from, keep shoving in my face.
Whatever I am still at war with, help me soften towards, relax into, fully embrace.
Where my heart is still closed, show me a way to open it without violence.
Where I am still holding on, help me let go.
Give me challenges and struggles and seemingly insurmountable obstacles, if that will bring an even deeper humility
and trust in the intelligence of life.
Help me laugh at my own seriousness.
Allow me to find the humor in the dark places.
Show me a profound sense of rest in the midst of the storm.
Don’t spare me from the truth. Ever.
Let gratitude be my guide.
Let forgiveness be my mantra.
Let this moment be a constant companion.
Let me see your face in every face.
Let me feel your warm presence in my own presence.
Hold me when I stumble.
Breathe me when I cannot breathe.
Let me die living, not live dying.


~ Jeff Foster

Promise Yourself


Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

~ Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them

Every Day


Every day a new joy,
A new bliss,
A new blast of astonishment.

Every day more wonder,
And the minutiae of magnificence revealed.

Yes, every day is another gift to see
The heretofore unseen.

And every day, I rush to the mirror to see
Just whose eyes these are?

~ Paul Goldman

May Today There Be Peace Within


“May today there be peace within.
May I trust that I am exactly where I am meant to be.
May I not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in myself and others.
May I use the gifts that I have received and pass on the love that has been given to me.
May I be content with myself just the way I am.
Let this knowledge settle into my bones and allow my soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.”

~ Mother Theresa

Morning Prayer

Dear God,

I give this day to You.
May my mind stay centered on the things of spirit.
May I not be tempted to stray from Love.

As I begin this day, I open to my heart to receive You.
Please enter where You already abide.

May my mind at heart be pure and true, and may I not deviate from the things of goodness.

May I see the love and innocence in all mankind, behind the masks we all wear and the illusions of this worldly plane.

I surrender to You my doings this day.
I ask only that they serve You and the healing of the world.

May I bring Your Love and Goodness with me to give unto others wherever I go.

Make me the person You would have me be.
Direct my footsteps, and show me what You would have me do.

Make the world a safer, more beautiful place.
Bless all Your creatures.
Heal us all, and use me, dear Lord, that I might know the joy of being used by You.


~ From Illuminata Marianne Williamson

One with Love

God is infinite and Omnipotent. I am tapped into and One with this vibration of love moving as me.

I know miracles are occurring in my life for I feel it happening. I let go of the past and I focus on my blessings allowing myself to think and act from the understanding of all possibilities and high belief.

My soul’s choice is to rise to new heights of discovery and empowerment and adventure. I do this one prayer, one thought, and one decision at a time.

God is revealing what my direction is to be, and I follow. There is no need to force my life into one direction or another, I let go and allow God to guide the way. I discover the unexpected blessings God has created for me.

I am thrilled with anticipation and I open my mind and all of my senses to my inner, spiritual realm. I am healed from the past and I am ready to take on this day for there are no limits to what I can be, do and have.

All is created through the God within me as the way. Divine wisdom guides me on my life path.

I am grateful and filled with thanksgiving and joy. I lovingly release this prayer into the Law with faith. It is Done. So It Is. Amen.

~ Ernest Holmes
