Prayer for Happiness
Please make me a force for good.
Remove from my awareness all thoughts that keep me bound here.
Every goal I surrender to You.
All agendas I surrender to You.
All I have and all I am I give to You.
I ask only to be carried in Your arms that I might know the joy of full surrender.
May I not be tempted to think about meaningless things and give them weight and suffer thereby.
Please send Your spirit to lift me up, above the pain and turmoil of this world.
Please give me new youth, and a free and joyful spirit.
Show me the happiness of full forgiveness.
Whomever I do not forgive, dear Lord, please show me how, for I wish to be free of the guilt of this world.
Please make me happy.
I am ready to outgrow my childish pain.
