Prayer of Truth
Oh my dear sweet Creator
Walk in to my heart, body and soul
And wash me clean of the indignities.
May you administer your almighty cleansing power to
Restore your guiding light into my Being
That I be granted the power of your love
To overcome the violent darkness that was placed on my interior.
So that I may surpass in the future days any remnants of this darkness
To continue to carry myself in the gentle Ways you have taught me.
That I may continue to walk forward in Universal Love, Understanding and Peace.
That the trumpet of Truth sing loudly up through me from the bottom of my feet
To the soft gentle whisper of my heartfelt Voice
Even if my lips tremble and my legs shake.
That I walk with the strength of your earth, trees and sun to settle my
Soul and let the Winds of Fate blow hard and forcefully to clean
Out all that must be cleared for the good of all.
