Prayer for Saturday (Martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev)

Today is the Sikh remembrance of the Martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev, 5th Sikh Guru. The Muslim holiday of Lailat al-Miraj begins at sunset today.

When there is no enemy within,
the enemies outside cannot hurt you.
~ African Proverb

Dear God, thank you that you love and accept me as I am—and that you love me too much to leave me as I am. Please help me to accept myself as you do, and help me to grow to become the person you want me to be so that my God-confidence and self-confidence will increase greatly. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Amen.
