This is a prayer that reminds me of who I am and Who I belong to as a believer in the God of the Bible. If is true for you, feel free to use it or adapt it. God won’t mind. All He cares about is that we believe what we say and that it honors Him.
I find this meditation useful as a guide to help me pray, especially when I need God’s help. Or honestly, a way to get started when my mind is full of distractions. If you would like to use it, you might want to read the words slowly and mindfully, changing any of them to make it your own.
- May I be aware of your presence,
and remember that I am never, ever alone.
O Father thank you for your presence.
2. May I be not only aware, but listening for your words
written in my Bible, whispered in my ear when I pray
and brought to my mind when I need them. Thank you Father.
3. May I be ever more aware of your love, and
that out of your love, you give me all that I need.
Thank you Father.
4. May I be aware of the gift you have given me in my body,
and may I be always aware of that gift and honor it,
using it for your glory, resting, or working or thinking.
Thank you my dear Heavenly Father.
5. May I be always ready for whatever you trust me with,
and rejoice for I know it was filtered through your love.
Thank you Father for that kind of strength.
6. May my life be always a light to this world
that shines glory on you
because I want it to be known that my life belongs to you.
Thank you God for your love that makes all of this possible.
