Dear God, embed a spirit of rest in me so I can find peace in your plans knowing I am not in charge of holding the world together.
We ask for healing from tears we cry that none know about. For shame we have carried, whether ours or not. For painful memories brought about by loved ones and strangers.
Give thanks for your senses: your eyes that see, your ears that hear, your mouth that tastes, your nose that smells, and your skin that lets you feel.
Give us this day, Lord, our daily miracle.
Even if we are incapable of noticing it because our mind is focused on great deeds and conquests. Even if we are too preoccupied with day-to-day life to know that our path was changed by it.
Thank you creator of the universe for the gift of life you have given me.
Thank you for giving me everything that I have ever truly needed.
Thank you for the opportunity to experience this beautiful body and this wonderful mind.
