God, give me the willpower to talk with you,
To confide in you my fears,
To tell you my secrets,
To share with you my joys,
To weep to you my sorrows,
And to listen to your words of guidance.
God, also give me the knowledge to keep my prayer vital,
To try different ways of communicating with you,
To sit in your holy presence,
To bask in your perfection,
To float in your goodness,
And to be one with you throughout this life and in the next.
