A Personal Prayer for Divine Love

This is a modified version of the Prayer for Divine Love, which makes it more personal. May your soul receive an abundance of God's Divine Love today, tomorrow and forevermore.

* * *

Dear Father, who art in Heaven,

I recognize that thou art all holy and loving and merciful, and that I am a child of Thy care and not a subservient, sinful and depraved creature that false teachers would have me believe. That I am the greatest of Thy creation, and the most wonderful of all Thy handiworks, and the object of Thy great Soul's Love and tenderest care.

That Thy will is that I become at-one with Thee and partake of Thy great Love, which Thou hast bestowed upon me through Thy mercy and desire that I become, in truth, Thy child, through Love and not through the sacrifice and death of any one of Thy creatures.

I pray that Thou will open up my soul to the inflowing of Thy love, and that then will come Thy Holy Spirit to bring into my soul, this, Thy Love in great abundance until my soul may be transformed into the very essence of Thyself. And that there may come to me faith, such faith as will cause me to realize that I am truly Thy child and that I am one with Thee in very substance and not in image only.

Let me have such faith as will cause me to know that Thou art my Father, and the bestower of every good and perfect gift, and that only I can prevent Thy Love changing me from the mortal to the immortal.

Let me never cease to realize that Thy Love is waiting for me, and that when I come to Thee with faith and earnest aspirations, Thy Love will never be withholden from me.

Keep me in the shadow of Thy Love every hour and moment of my life, and help me to overcome all temptations of the flesh and the influence of the powers of the evil ones, who so constantly surround me and endeavor to turn my thoughts away from Thee to the pleasures and allurements of this world.

I thank Thee for Thy Love and for the privilege of receiving it, and I believe that Thou art my Father, the loving Father who smiles upon me in my weakness, and is always ready to help me and take me to Thy arms of love.

I pray, thus, with all the earnestness and longings of my soul, and trusting in Thy Love give Thee all the glory and honor and love that my finite soul can give.
