The Prayer Perfect ....

This is a modern version of the Prayer.

Our Father, in the Celestial Heaven, we recognize You as all Holy, loving and merciful, and we as Your children, are not the subservient, sinful or depraved creatures the teachers of old would have us believe. We are the greatest and most wonderful of all Your creations, and the objects of Your great Soul's Love and tenderest care.

Your Will is that we become at-one with You, and partake of the great Love bestowed upon us through Your Mercy and desire that we become, in truth, Your children through love, not through the sacrifice and death of any of Your creatures.

We pray that You will open up our souls to the inflowing of Your Love, and then will come the Holy Spirit to bring into our souls Your Divine Love in great abundance, until we are transformed into the very Essence of Yourself. Then will come to us such faith as will cause us to realize that we are truly Your children, and one with You in very Substance, and not in image only.

Give us such faith as will cause us to know that You are our Father, the bestower of every good and perfect gift, and that only we, ourselves, can prevent Your Love changing us from a mortal into an immortal.

Let us never cease to realize that Your Love is waiting for each and all of us, and that when we come to You in faith and earnest aspiration, Your Love will never be withheld from us.

Keep us in the shadow of Your Love every hour and moment of our lives and help us to overcome all the temptations of the flesh, and the influence of the powers of the evil ones, which so constantly surround us and endeavor to turn our thoughts away from You to the pleasures and allurements of this world.

We thank You for Your Love and the privilege of receiving It. We know You are the Loving Father who smiles upon us in our weakness, and is always ready to help us, and take us to Your Arms of Love.

We pray this with all the earnestness and sincere longings of our souls, and trusting in Your Love, give You all the glory, honor and love that our finite souls can give.

Amen.
