Third Step Prayer short version
God, I offer myself to Thee—to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and The way of life. May I do Thy will always!
My Offering To God
I was telling my sponsee and friend about a meditation I do. Once I have settled into my meditative state after saying a few mantras such as the Lords Prayer. Then I pray a step eleven request that I be given the knowledge of God’s will for me and the power to carry that out. I close my eyes. I put some of the heavenly crystals on my chakras, throat, forehead, abdomen. Then I envision dancing before The Lord, my Higher Power. The dance I do is an offering unto God. It is an act of showing my Higher power reverence, tribute, veneration, High regard, and it is a testimonial of my honor toward God. I wear a long white dress with a sash. The color of the dress is relevant to my mood and color is symbolic in a spiritual way.
Last time I did this meditation I was given a gift. I didn’t expect it. What I got was a deep realization of my creator and His care of me. I was zapped by God’s Spirit and then I laughed at myself. God took the time, care and Love to create me. He will not discard me like a piece of garbage. I fear sometimes for the future. What will become of me I worry to myself. Will I get Alzheimer’s? Will I be able to walk and get around at the age of eighty? What will my death be like? Will I suffer? Will I even have a roof over my head? And what about my daughter and loved ones? I also worry for them. Well God gave me an epiphany of His Love and care for me. He let me know that He is not going to feed me to the wolves. The realization went deep into my heart into a locked door which no human could have ever opened. It was an empty room of my heart that only the creator of me could fill. But if I don’t take the time to move near to God. God if left out of my life in ways that only I can choose. God is a gentlemen as they say and He will not overstep the boundaries of my free-will.
When I rely on God my needs and unhealthy reliance on mankind fads to nothing. My faith was increased that day. My fears were quelled. I trust my Higher Power a little more than ever before.
