Probably all of us have heard this prayer. For me, the italicized part summarizes the whole prayer. Like this prayer, the phrase, “be a great day” reminds me that we must become the Thing or Quality that we want to experience for ourselves or others. I love quotes and this reminds me of many others. Such as: Holmes, “God can do for us only what God can do through us”; and from Gandhi, “be the change you want to see in the world.”
I heard our beloved emeritus minister, Rev Margie Clark, say that this prayer could be the prayer for every Practitioner. And as we know, professionally licensed or not, we are all Practitioners. Thus, this is a prayer for all of us.
