A Birthday Prayer


In the Name of the Kind and Beautiful Precious Beloved Lord

Today, by the grace of God, is my birthday (DON’T EVEN THINK about extracting from me my age…). I offer up this prayer on this day:

 

Precious Beloved Lord,

Today, You have blessed me with another year of life

Today, You have blessed me with another year of breath and movement

Today, You have blessed me with another year of enjoyment with my family

Today, You have blessed me with another year to bask in the light of Your Love

Lord, my Beautiful God, forgive me for all those times in the past year that I have fallen from Your Grace

Lord, my Beautiful God, forgive me for all those times I have fallen short of Your Call and Way

Lord, my Beautiful God, forgive me for all the ugliness I have shown You for all of Your Beauty

As I traverse another year in Your Love, I ask that You bless my path

Bless my travels, bless my time, bless my family, bless my writing

Bless my practice of medicine, bless my practice of Your faith

Lord, let my next year be better than this one that has just passed

And Beautiful Lord, forgive all my sins that I have yet to transgress against Your Beauty

And if my journey were to end in the next year, please, my Precious Beloved:

Let me come back to Your Glorious Face happy and joyous,

Let me enter into Your Presence to dwell therein forever and ever

And let me, once again, see my beloved Booboo in all her glory and beauty.

In Your Most Holy Name I ask this. Amen.
