DesertLord, give me the discipline,

the love for you,

and the wisdom

to live this life you have given me

in the face of everything.

hs-2004-45-a-large_webMay I be hopeful in the midst of hopelessness,

Content in the midst of suffering,

A light unto others in darkness.

May I injure none,

cause suffering to none,

upset none in any way.

May I strive for all,

live for all,

love all forever.

silhouettes-of-people-along-the-coast-watching-the-sunset_w725_h485Lord of all things, Mother of the universe, friend of every soul,

grant me the humility to realize the insignificance of my little self.

May I search every being I encounter and find you dwelling within them.

May I worship you in my every thought, word and deed.

Give me the fortitude to control my scattered mind,

that I may attain the wisdom I need to be of service to all beings.

Give me pure love and devotion for you.

Be near me always.

2012-09-12 (12)Holy One,

when I am angry, make me sing;

when I am melancholy, make me laugh;

when I am doubtful, make me pray;

when I am lazy, make me strive;

when I am gluttonous, make me fast;

when I am impatient, make me wait;

when I am callous, make me assuage.

Whenever my will is not Thy Will, make They Will to be mine.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

May all those who care for your devotees, O Lord, have presence of mind and strength of character.

May all those who teach and lead your children be gentle, faithful, loving caretakers.

Too often have you been invoked by the powerful and the low-minded. Too often have you been made the cause for wickedness.

Let those who love you be comforted by your presence, assured by your nearness, and buoyed up by your grace.

May they expect the greatest things from their teachers, and may their teachers be capable of the greatest things.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

Make Me Let Go

Mother-Child_face_to_faceI want to open my hands and release it all, let everything fall. You catch it then, and take care of it.

I’ll do what you want me to, whatever is best, but I don’t want to own anything anymore. I don’t want to cling to anything or anyone. They’re all yours.

Please open my hands, pry my fingers off, and let them all fall into your lap.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

Muslim_at_prayer_in_Ortakoy_MosqueAs I lay myself down to sleep, let me remember, Master, that it is at your feet that I slumber.

May my thoughts be of nothing but you, my wishes be to love and serve you, and my dreams be filled with the sense of your presence.

Keep my loved ones safe and content.

Hold all troubles at bay.

Grant that the morning may bring me the sense of peace that comes with the knowledge of your boundless love for me.

May the new day bring an end to suffering.

I give myself over to your purposes. Grant that I may give myself without reservation or thought of myself.

Let my day be filled with you, dedicated to you, sanctified by you.

Thank you, Lord, for your endless blessings. There is no greater miracle than the love with which you shower us.

May every hour find me praising you. May I ceaselessly worship you with all that I do. Make my life long that I may adore you for many years to come. But should my life be cut short, may I die chanting your holy name, and be reborn into a family who loves you.

Peace, peace, peace be into all.
