3. The Grace Prayer

This is a prayer of surrender based upon the words of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane and on the Cross during the Crucifixion. The mystic is in a constant mind-set of surrender, for only in complete surrender can there be a merger in consciousness with the higher self. The Crucifixion is symbolic of the final crossing out of any sense of separation in the soul (death and dying to the ego self). In total surrender, there is always resurrection, or rising into a new level of spiritual awareness.

The Grace Prayer

For Thee I thirst.
Into Thy hands I commit my spirit
(my soul, my body, my life,
this problem, all unforgiven states).
Thy will is my will.
Thy will be done through me.
Heal me at depth.
Reveal that which needs to be revealed.
Heal that which needs to be healed
so I can glorify You, God,
and live in the fullness of grace.
It is finished.
