May You instill in all of us
Wisdom and enlightenment through clarity
For it is through You, we hope to seek and achieve
Divine and lasting peace and serenity
In turn, may we be an inspiring presence
To our loved ones and everyone around us
Like a candle and all of it’s essence
Wherever there is darkness.
May You uplift our spirits and cleanse our souls
May You turn our hearts to gold
Strengthen our values, both inter and intra alike
May You imbue in us all, virtues like:
Patience, tolerance, humility and self-control
May the first be returned ten-folds
Love, kindness, compassion and empathy
May we uphold these with unwavering sincerity.
May You cheapen our sustenance and contain our greed
May You not give us what we want, but what we need
May You bless us with good health, vitality and longevity
May You banish our sins form here to eternity
May You shelter us from harm, calamity and crises
May You keep us away from evil deeds, bad influences, and vices
And other temptations and sinful worldly desires
That would draw us ever closer to the fire.
May You cool our inner fire and calm our hearts
May You clear our heads and compose our thoughts
May You soften our tongue and lower our gaze
May You bless us with good manners, courtesy, and grace
May You guide our hands and show us signs
For it is through the unseen, do we trust and hope to find
May You strengthen our path, so we may never astray
May You strengthen our faith, come what may.
