Prayers for Spiritual Growth & Solace

O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my guide and my Refuge. I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being. O God! I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.

O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.

If you are praying for someone else you can modify the prayer in this way (I’ll use the feminine she/her for brevity):

O God! Refresh and gladden (name) spirit. Purify her heart. Illumine her powers. Guide her to lay all her affairs in Thy hand. Thou art her guide and Refuge. I pray she will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; will be a happy and joyful being. O God! I pray she will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will she let trouble harass her nor dwell on the unpleasant things of life.

O God!  May she dedicate herself to Thee, O Lord.
