I feel that my life is less than it should be.
I cannot find my freedom or my passion.
I have so much inside me that stays shut down that isn’t free.
I hurt so much to know I am not living at full force.
My talents are not used as I wish.
My abilities are not fully formed.
My energies are so suppressed.
Dear Lord, I do not know how to break free of the ways I constantly negate myself.
I hold myself prisoner somehow.
I know I do.
I know it is my own illusion, this prison in which I live, yet I cannot break free, though I try so hard.
Please, dear God, break down the walls that surround me.
Melt this prison.
Free my soul that I might be as You would have me be:
Free to love,
To feel passion for good,
To do the good with passion.
I wish to fly.
I wish to feel your full abundant spirit in me.
Give me this miracle.
Marianne Williamson from “Illuminata A Return to Prayer”
