When I say God, I mean the God of my understanding; my higher power, the Universe, the Angels, the Divine, my Higher Self, Buddha, The Tao. I believe in all of those things and I believe that they are inside me. I am the Universe. God is within me. We are all one and all part of the Divine. We are part of the universe and the universe is part of us.
For sometime now I have been healing through means of recovery programmes that encourage me to admit that I’m powerless and hand my problems over to God. I have no problem handing over my problems to God, although admittedly, sometimes I forget. When I first considered the idea of admitting that I’m powerless however, I felt a huge amount of resistance. “I am powerful. I have already made a number of significant changes in my life. I have had a number of successes,” I said to myself. After considering this and journaling about it I realized that I am powerful, by the grace of God. The Divine within me is what makes me powerful and without that I am nothing. My life is always smoother and more successful when I put my life in God’s hands.
Based on learnings from these programmes and teachings such as those of Marianne Williamson and Doreen Virtue, I say the following prayer every morning:
Dear God and the Angels,
Please send me the willingness to do your will and get out of the way so that your will can be done. Please show me clearly what your will for me is.
What would you have me do today? Where would you have me go? What would you have me say and to whom? What would you have me wear? How would you have me do my hair? How would you have me serve humanity?
Thank you. And so it is. Amen
I can hear some of you questioning and even ridiculing the part where I ask what I should I wear and how I should do my hair. This feels right for me and I believe that nothing is too small for God and the Angels to help with. I think my Angels enjoy helping me choose my clothes. They are my girlfriends after all. In my minds eye, I can see my angels pulling a dress out from my wardrobe and holding it up saying, “what about this one?”
I hope this prayer resonates with you and if so I encourage you to use it or devise your own. Enjoy the process and have fun with your higher power as you make choices together. Know that your Higher Power loves you and wants to wrap you up in comfort and security.
Use this prayer daily, write your own or find something similar online. Remember to have fun with it.
