Day of Grace

Dear God,

I thank You for this potentially relaxing day.  I was quite busy yesterday, and so I am just going to slow down today.  Pray, meditate, read quietly, maybe write a bit.  Thank You for letting me know that busyness is not an end in itself.

Be with me during this day so that I can come ever closer to You.  I need quiet times to get to know Your Mind, Your wishes, for me.  Thank You for giving me the grace to just take it easy.

Amen.

Slow Down

Dear God,

I have a lot to do today, tasks that I have assigned to myself.  I know, though, that if I stop and ask You to prioritize for me, the tasks will actually get done in record time—and with harmony and peace.

Grant me Your harmony and peace today.  Help me to pace myself.  Nothing is worth getting worked up and in a frenzy.  I will relax and truly live.

Thank You for Your part in getting things accomplished easily and with a serene spirit.

Amen.

Patience

Dear God,

Help me to know when to speak and when to be silent today.  I have a dicey situation coming up, and I want to keep harmony within my inner circle.  Sometimes a moment of stopping, not saying anything, can defuse an escalating episode.  I would use all the patience that I have today.

Be with me to tell me what to say.  As You live through me, help me to know that You ARE living through me.  And help me to give You a good day.

Amen.

Optimism

Dear God,

Thank You for this feeling of optimism.  The day bodes well.  It IS possible to raise my mood by what I think about and feel.  I would avoid dwelling on any past things that hurt; I would focus on the good of today and be grateful.  And I would look forward to a glorious tomorrow and all the days that follow.

Be with me.  Let me sense and feel Your Presence.  My mystical awareness of You is precious to me.  Thank You for knowing what gives me solace.

Amen.

Guided to Peace

Dear God,

I went to You this morning for something that was disturbing my peace of mind.  And You seemed to give me steps to a solution, several steps that I wrote in my journal.  Thank You very much.  I thank You not only for the guidance, but also for the understanding that writing out any difficulty gets it clear in my mind and heart, so that You can answer it.

Be with me for a good day.  I realize that I am satisfied with my life, and over the last few years I could not always say that.  Now I can.  Studying the law of attraction has made the difference.  Thank You.

Amen.

Creating the Good

Dear God,

I would like to create a good present and future.  Please be with me as I seek to have positive thoughts and feelings that will so create for me.  If I lapse into negative thinking, my life will spiral downward.  I would not have a downward spiral.

Be with me to lift me higher and higher, but safely, with good emotional control and healthy physical body.  I know that you are for health all the way.  May I build on that knowledge, and be reassured that Your choices for me are good.  Thank You.

Amen.

Wants

Dear God,

May I focus on what I want and not on what I don’t want.  May my wants be informed by Your good judgment.  If I want something that will harm me, please put a stop to it.  I ask for all that is good and holy, in Your name.

I am satisfied that You will oblige me in this.  But it is up to me to create the life that I want; the universe is wide open for this.  May You gently help me to turn aside from thoughts that harm, choosing instead thoughts—and feelings—that give me solace and a good life.

Thank You.

Amen.
