Functional Prayer Guide

Do not pray for success.

Pray for the wisdom to see the ways you can best serve the world.  You will begin to cultivate the image of a better world in your heart. Work, in service of the world according to that image. You will be more successful than you can imagine.

Do not pray for happiness.

Pray in gratitude for the aspects of your life that make you happy. You will begin to cultivate a habit of giving thanks for all of the good things in your life. Work, maintaining and growing those aspects of the world that make you happy. You will be happier than you can imagine.

Do not pray for forgiveness.

Pay for the courage to see how your actions have harmed yourself and others. You will begin to cultivate a habit of care in your actions.  Work, repairing the damages you cause the world.  You will feel more at peace than you can imagine.

Faith without works is dead.

Work in service of faith endures.
