Prayer for the Higher Self

positive_energy_girl_(from Marianne Williamson’s Illuminata: A Return to Prayer)

Dear God,

In this one moment I recognize that there is within me a perfect Self:

A Self that is not dysfunctional;

A Self that is not weak but strong;

Not limited, but unlimited;

Not small, but huge;

Not in pain but in peace;

Not faithless and scared but all-knowing, all loving, serene and calm and happy through the grace of God.

I have been playing with the toys of death and weakness.

I have been playing at sickness and playing at addiction.

I have been playing at dysfunction and limitation and war.

I have been playing at hunger and violation of myself and others.

I have been playing with toys that are dangerous.

But I desire to play the games of death no more.

In this moment, I ask You, dear God, to release me from my destructive thinking.

I take up now the mantle of Your magnificence.

…I invoke Your light.

I receive Your heaven, which replaces hell.

I do not look back.

I do not stop my eyes at the veil of horror that surrounds the world, but rather I extend my vision to the possibilities for love for myself and others.

I step out of my childhood, into my adulthood; out of my weakness, into my strengths; out of my fear, into my love; out of my small self, into You.

Dear God, please make me new.

Amen.

Crazy Love

Abba,

Thank You that Your mercies are new every morning.

Thank You that time means very little to you, and your patience never runs out.

Thank You for the power of prayer to change everything.

You are all that matters, and yet I’ve taken so little time to be with You these past few months.

Thank You for loving me just the same whether I spend all day in prayer or no time at all.

Thank You for being so perfect, and for loving me so profoundly.

Please help me to take the time to be with You, to bask in You, to learn Your ways, to be Your disciple, to do Your work, to share Your crazy love with a crazy lonely world. Please help me to master my day with a disciplined schedule.

In Jesus’ tender name I pray,

amen.

p.s. Thank You SO so so so much for the book Psychotic Inertia by Patrick Dodson, and how much that has helped to clear up the contradictions that were keeping me clogged!!!

The Lord’s Prayer (Passion Translation)

Girl-praying

Our Heavenly Father,

May the Glory of Your name
Be the center on which our life turns.
May Your Holy Spirit come upon us and cleanse us.
Manifest Your Kingdom on earth.
And give us each day what is needed for that day.
Forgive us our sins as we ourselves
Release forgiveness to those who have wronged us.
And rescue us every time we face tribulations.

                                     Luke 11:2-4 tPt

Amen, Abba! For Yours is the Dominion and the Power and the Glory now and forever more!

Woo-hoo! 😉
