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.
