Prayers From Metaphysical Meditations by Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda
O Spirit, make my soul Thy temple, but make my heart Thy beloved home where Thou wouldst dwell with me in ease and everlasting understanding.
Divine Mother, with the language of my soul I demand realization of Thy presence. Thou art the essence of everything. Make me see Thee in every fibre of my being, in every wisp of thought. Awaken my heart!
O Bestower of unceasing bliss! I will seek to make others truly happy, in gratitude for the divine joy Thou hast given me. Through my spiritual happiness I will serve all.
Heavenly Father, teach me to remember Thee in poverty or prosperity, in sickness or health, in ignorance or wisdom. Teach me to open my closed eyes of unbelief and behold Thine instantaneously healing light.
O blazing Light! awaken my heart, awaken my soul, ignite my darkness, tear the veil of silence, and fill my temple with Thy glory.
Heavenly Father, charge my body with Thy vitality, charge my mind with Thy spiritual power, charge my soul with Thy joy, Thine immortality.
O Father, Thine unlimited and all-healing power is in me. Manifest Thy light through the darkness of my ignorance.
O Eternal Energy, awaken in me conscious will, conscious vitality, conscious health, conscious realization.
Heavenly Spirit, bless me that I may easily find happiness instead of becoming worried at every test and difficulty.
Father, teach me to include the prosperity of others in the pursuit of my own prosperity.
Teach me to feel that Thou art the power behind all wealth, and the value within all things. Finding Thee first, I will find everything else in Thee.
Invincible Lord, teach me to use my will unceasingly in the performance of good actions, until the little light of my will burns as the cosmic blaze of Thine all-powerful will.
