Prayer for Saturday

Not what we have but what we enjoy,
constitutes our abundance.
~ Epicurus

Dear God,
Without realizing it, I must have taken on a belief system that includes thoughts about lack, scarcity, suffering, sacrifice and deprivation. I recognize this because I see the tangible evidence of this around me and in the lives of others. I accept that what I see is only what my mind accepts as reality. I have no interest in this belief system as it blocks my awareness of You and delays my experience of the joyful abundance that is Your will for me. Please heal my mind of every thought I have that is contributing to my delay of prosperity and abundance.
I accept Your love for me on every level. As a Child of God, I am worthy of Your gifts, blessings and resources. In gratitude, I claim my Divine inheritance. I am relieved as I remember it is not up to me to provide the resources that naturally come from You, the Giver of everything. Thy will be done. Amen

(from Miracles in Prayer by Robin Duncan)

Prayer for Friday

The world is full of abundance and opportunity,
but far too many people come to the fountain of life with a sieve instead of a tank car… a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel.
They expect little and as a result they get little.
~ Ben Sweetland

Before me, is proof of Earth’s abundance,
before me, is proof that I am most fortunate,
before me, is a meal, many millions can only dream of,
with hunger in their bellies that I am blessed not to feel.

May I savor each bite that nourishes me.
May I never take this ample bounty for granted.
May I use this fuel given to my body, wisely and well,
and never squander my blessed life on petty things.

Before me, is the proof of Earth’s abundance,
May I never fail to remember how truly blessed I am.

Prayer for Thursday (Muharram)

Today is Muharram, the Muslim New Year. Today is also Bhaiya Dooj, the fifth and final day of the Hindu festival of Diwali, and the time of the Buffalo Dance for the Tewa peoples in southwestern U.S.

The measure of your life will not be in what you accumulate,
but in what you give away.
~ Wayne Dyer

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

(Muslim Dua for Prosperity)

And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them. I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me. So let them respond to My call and believe in Me. (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!
~ Qur’an, Surah Baqarah 2:186
