A Prayer – May I Know Who I Am (by Debbie Ford)
On this day I ask you to grant this request –
May I know who I am and what I am, every moment of every day.
May I be a catalyst for light and love
and bring inspiration to those whose eyes I meet.
May I have the strength to stand tall in the face of conflict
and the courage to speak my voice, even when I’m scared.
May I have the humility to follow my heart.
And the passion to live my Soul’s desires.
May I seek to know the highest truth
and dismiss the gravitational pull of my lower self.
May I embrace and love the totality of myself –
my darkness as well as my light.
And may I be brave enough to hear my heart –
to let it soften so that I may gracefully choose faith over fear.
Today is my day to surrender anything that stands between
the sacredness of my humanity and my divinity.
May I be drenched in my holiness.
And engulfed by God.
May all else melt away.
And so it is, and it is so.
There are such wonderful phrases and thoughts in this prayer.
It begins with what I think is one of the most important spiritual concepts for wholeness and healing – our identity – remembering who we are, who God created us to be and how we remain, at our core as God created us. And it ends with a longing for more of God. Identity and theology – the keys to healing, joy and peace.
May I embrace my whole self.
May I listen to my heart.
May I know my highest self and highest truth.
May I embrace who I am.
May my heart soften.
May I choose faith over fear.
May I be aware of my humanity and embrace my divinity as a child of God.
DRECHED in holiness, ENGULFED in God – Yes!
May all else melt away that I may constantly know who I am and who God is and thereby know peace.
