Ya Allah . . .


. . .I thank You for today. I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a Forgiving deity and an Understanding and Compassionate one.

You have done so much for me and You continue to bless me in ways I cannot count. I know that You will forgive me and continue to bless me if I turn to You in a sincere and humble fashion. You continue to bless us even when we fail to be grateful and appreciative.

I now appeal to You in humility for your promise of forgiveness. Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Help me and give me the courage, patience, and strong will to make the best of each and every day.

Please help me to broaden my mind so that I approach problems, confusion, despair, misfortune, happiness, clarity, and good fortune with appreciation and wisdom.

I know that sometimes negative things happen for seemingly no reason, and I am a human, created by you weak and humble, and limited in my ability to understand some things. Help to me realize the lessons behind hardships when I'm being pushed beyond my limits.

Let me not fall to the weaknesses of complaining about things I have no control over, and help me to fulfill the best of my full potential when I do have the power and ability to make positive change or fulfill obligations.

Give me the courage, strength, fortitude and willingness to be a blessing of aid and comfort unto others.

Keep me strong that I may help the weak. Help me to work towards justice and fairness for everyone and everything, even if it means standing up against my own faults and wrongdoings.

Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. And empower me to avoid destructive greed and to be generous to others.

Help me to become and grow as a constructively active individual and as a constructive member of groups, and help me to defeat the weaknesses of passivity if I ever fall into such traps.

I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way, for them to seek clarity and confidence about themselves and their surroundings.

I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood and who, as a result, are wronged.

I pray for peace, love and joy for every human and that all can free themselves from the imprisonment of debt and that their needs are met.

I pray that every eye that reads comes to know there is no problem, circumstance, or situation that is insurmountable. All it takes is that we just believe and have confidence in ourselves and in Him and that we strive earnestly for improvement.

Ameen.
