This is a prayer for opening up to the lessons implicit in hard times.
God, today has been hard. I felt so ashamed to tell (my partner/friends/family/etc.) that I didn’t have (the job, money, information, accomplishment, etc.) that I needed and should have had. I feel scared and ashamed.
God I realize I have a lot to learn in this lifetime and a lot to learn about this subject. Please transform my shame into forgiveness. Please take my pain and my small self and show me the light of peace and the way to fully inhabit your love. Show me what I cannot see on my own, so that I am able to become the divine version of my human self.
Thank you for showing me the way. I give you all that I am and all I am here to be. Amen.
