Peace Within (St. Therese’s Prayer)

May today there be peace within.
May we trust our highest power that we are exactly where we are meant to be.
May we not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May we use those gifts that we have received, and pass on the love that has been given to us.
May we be content knowing we are children of God.
Let this presence settle into our bones, and
allow our souls the freedom
to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Amen

Affirmation Prayer

Help me learn to meet life with an affirmative attitude
There is good in the world, and I can follow that good.
Power is available to help me do the right thing.
Therefore, I must accept that power.
I pray that I will not be paralyzed by doubt.
I pray that I may meet life affirmatively on the venture of faith.

Amen

Great Spirit Prayer

Oh, Great Spirit,
whose voice I hear in the wind,
whose breath gives life to all the world.

Hear me;
I need your strength and wisdom.

Let me walk in beauty,
and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.

Make my hands respect the things you have made
and my ears sharp to hear your voice make me wise
so that I may understand the things you have taught my people.

Help me to remain calm and strong
in the face of all that comes towards me.

Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
Help me seek pure thoughts and act with the intention of helping others.
Help me find compassion without empathy overwhelming me.

I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
But to fight my greatest enemy myself.

Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes.

So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you without shame.

 

Walk in Beauty Prayer

Great Spirit Whose voice I hear in the wind
Whose breath gives life to the world
Hear me I come to you as one of your many children
I am small and weak
I need your strength and wisdom
May I walk in beauty

Amen

Victory Prayer

Higher power, I offer myself to you.
To build with me and to do with me as you will.
Relieve me of the burden of self, that I may better do your will.
Take away my difficulties.
That victory over them may bear witness to those I would help.
Of your power, your love and your way of life.
May I do your will always.
Amen
