This Prayer Powers Up My Day

(I had taken so many things for granted... but today I realize I am so blessed to be able to walk here and see this every weekend, Redondo Beach, CA)

I came across this prayer from the book Illuminata: A Return to Prayer. I think this prayer pretty much gives us a guideline on how everyone of us should live our life in this world. We have only one life to live, whether we believe in God or not, we can be inspired to live each day to serve our great purpose, to make this world a better place:

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 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.
