The Prayer for Divine Love

A while back I posted a prayer that I wrote to God which was based upon the Prayer for Divine Love or the original Our Father.  Some time later it occurred to me that some of you may not have read the original prayer so I have posted it here for you.  The bits in italics are the bits that I add for my own personal version of the prayer.  It helps me to continue to strive to really FEEL the truth  in the prayer and mostly acknowledges that most of the time I do not yet fully feel the truth in my soul.  When I add in my own personal touches it helps me to stay in the feelings contained within the prayer and has a greater likelihood of reaching the Father on a soul to Soul basis.  Feel free to personalize the prayer for your own use and direct it to either our Father or Mother God as your soul needs.

I hope it helps you also have a deeper connection with God in Prayer.



Our Father, who is in heaven, I recognize that You are all Holy and Loving and Merciful, help me to truly know (and) that I am Your child, and not the subservient, sinful and depraved creature that my false teachers would have me believe.  Help me to know That I am the greatest of Your creation, and the most wonderful of all Your handiworks, and the object of Your great Soul's love and Tenderest care.

Loving Father, I (recognize that) help me to understand that Your will is that I become at one with You, and partake of Your great love which You have bestowed upon me through Your mercy and desire that I (name) become, in truth, Your child; through love, and not through the sacrifice and death of any one of Your creatures.

O loving Father I pray that You will open up my heart and my soul to the inflowing of Your Divine Love and Truth, and that then may come Your Holy Spirit to bring into my soul this, Your Divine Love in great abundance, until my soul shall be transformed into the very essence of Yourself; and I pray that there may come to me faith--such faith as will cause me to realize that I are truly Your child and one with You in very substance, and not in image only.

Merciful God, let me have such faith as will cause me to know that You are my Father, and the bestower of every good and perfect gift, and that only I, myself, can prevent Your love changing me from the mortal to the immortal. Please Father, help me to understand why it is that I would want to prevent Your Love!

Let me never cease to realize that Your Love is waiting for me and for each and all of us, and that when I come to You in faith and earnest aspiration, Your love will never be with-held from me.

Please Father, Keep me in the shadow of Your 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, which so constantly surround me and endeavor to turn my thoughts away from You to the pleasures and allurements of this world.

Loving Father, I thank You for Your Love and the privilege of receiving it, (and I believe) help me to know that You are my Father--the loving Father who smiles upon me in my weakness, and is always ready to help me and take me to Your arms of love. 

I pray this with all the earnestness and sincere longings of my soul, and trusting in Your Love, I give You all the glory and honour and love that my finite soul can give.
