A Prayer for Moving Forward

Where have you tried unsuccessfully to do things on your own?

Where have you resisted support?

Amida Buddha, Lahaina, Maui

How has it stopped you from shining? 

¬†Right here, right now, it’s time to let go and move forward.

And this is the prayer to do so.


Are you there God? It’s me {insert your name}.

I’ve had it, I’m done, I surrender.

I hereby give up my need to do it my way, and I’m asking for help.

Help me be clear, and of service.

Help me show up and share my gifts.

And please…

Help me get out of my own way.

I want to shine so bright that even you God, have got to wear shades.

I know what I’m here to do.

Help me do it.
