My Prayer

May I be wealthy enough to care for my family

May I be strong enough to care for the weak

May I be gentle, patient and skillful in struggle

May I be self-aware and mindful in dealing with others

May I be healthy enough to be present for my children

May I be honest enough to be worthy of trust

May I be wise enough to bring little or no harm to myself and others

May I be joyful enough to want to share life’s goodness

May I be aware enough to have great empathy and compassion

May I know suffering enough to put justice in action

May I maintain a kindness and gentleness of spirit

May I know truth to share with those who may need it

May I inspire any who seek proof that life is worth living

May I know gratitude daily and be generous in giving

May I serve well as I journey through today

May I know peace, love, and grace along the way
