I Give This Day To You

family spring 2010 026

Dear God,

I give this day to You.
May my mind stay centered on the things of spirit.
May I not be tempted to stray from love.
As I begin this day, I open to receive You.

Please enter where You already abide.
May my mind and heart be pure and true,
and may I not deviate from the things of goodness.
May I see the love and innocence in all (hu)mankind,
behind the masks we all wear and the illusions of this worldly plane.

I surrender to You my doings this day.
I ask only that they serve You and the healing of the world.
May I bring Your love and goodness with me,
to give unto others wherever I go.

Make me the person You would have me be.
Direct my footsteps, and show me what You would have me do.
Make the world a safer, more beautiful place.

Bless all Your creatures.
Heal us all, and use me, dear Lord,
that I might know the joy of being used by You.

Amen.

~ Marianne Williamson, from Illuminata: A Return to Prayer
