Prayers for Mercy

I’m praying for...

This is a prayer from the time of Covid. I did not write a single word of it (although I changed a few and moved some commas around). Also no one person wrote it all. It is lines from many prayers that I completely rearranged to come to the following:

I wanted a perfect ending, so I sat down to write the book. I had an ending in place before there even was an ending. Now I’ve learned the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme. I’ve learned the hard was that some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Like my life, this book has ambiguity. Like my life, this book is about not knowing, about having to change, about taking the moment, and about making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.

God, show us the truth about this. We now accept all fears, doubts, and judgments while we try to follow the light of perfect consciousness to illuminate our path. Pure love is present here and now, as God lives in every person we meet. We are not separate from our brothers and sisters, but one with them.

Thank you, God, for loving me infinitely and opening all doors for the highest good of all concerned. May I receive your love and share it.
