My New Year’s request to the Universal Spirit:
Open my ears to the voice of the Divine, who creates and nurtures. Let me hear Her whisper love above all the noise of hate and anger.
Fill my heart with so much joy and tolerance that there’s no room for doubt, fear, or judgment.
Silence my tongue of all things unkind or harsh, and instead teach me to speak only words that promote life and offer encouragement.
Pour peace into my soul that I might drink it until I overflow and I may share it with others whose souls are in torment.
Use my hands to wipe tears and my arms to embrace those who feel broken, so they may know the healing power of your grace.
Guide my path toward mercy and forgiveness, and walk with me, first toward myself, and then allow me to be a light to guide others there.
Touch my spirit with the fresh balm of gratitude, that I may always reflect who You created me to be.
Let me a blessing to all those who need one today and always.
