I will have prayers for guidance because there is no man who is of so little faith that, in a moment of great disaster, has not called out to his God?I will have prayers for guidance because there is no man who is of so little faith that, in a moment of great disaster, or heartbreak, or misery beyond his comprehension has not called out to his God?

My life need not be filled with religion in order to recognise this greatest mystery of nature – all creatures that walk the earth possess the instinct to cry out for help. And aren’t these cries also a form of prayer? What superior power would not have the ability to answer our cries, having first given us as well as every creature in nature, be it a mule or a lamb or a bird the instinct to cry out for help?

Henceforth, I will pray for guidance. But my cries for help will only be cries for guidance. I won’t ever pray for material things. I have no need to call to a servant to bring me food. I will never pray for gold, love, good health, petty victories, fame, success, or happiness. Instead I will pray for the guidance that I may be shown the way to acquire these things and my prayers will always be answered.

The prayers for guidance I seek may come or it may not come. But are not both of these an answer? If a child asks his father for a treat and it is not forthcoming, has not the father answered? I will pray for guidance and I will pray as a salesman in this manner:

“Oh, Creator of all things help me. For this day I go out into the world naked and alone and, without your hand to guide me, I will wander far from the path which leads to success and happiness”.

You have taught the Lion and the Eagle how to hunt and prosper with teeth and claw. Teach me how to hunt with words and prosper with love, so that I may be a Lion among men and an Eagle in the market place. Help me to remain humble through obstacles and failures, yet hide not from mine eyes the prize that will come with victory.

Assign me tasks at which others have failed. Yet guide me to pluck the seeds of success from their failures.

I will have prayers for guidance because there is no man who is of so little faith that, in a moment of great disaster, has not called out to his God?Confront me with fears that will temper my spirit. Yet endow me with courage to laugh at my misgivings.

Spare me sufficient days to reach my goals, yet help me to live this day as though it be my last.

Guide me in my words so that they may bear fruit, yet silence me from gossip that none may be maligned.

Discipline me in the habit of trying and trying again. Yet show me the way to make use of the law of averages.

Favour me with alertness to recognise opportunity when I see it, yet endow me with patience to concentrate my strength.

Bathe me in good habits that the bad ones may drown, yet grant me compassion for weaknesses in others.

I will have prayers for guidance because there is no man who is of so little faith that, in a moment of great disaster, has not called out to his God?Suffer me to know that all things shall pass, yet help me to count the blessings of today.

Expose me to hate, so it may not be a stranger, yet fill my cup with love to turn strangers into friends.

But all these things, be only if Thou will it to be so. I am as small and lonely as a grape clutching the vine. Yet Thou hast made me different from all others. Readily there must be a special place for me.

Guide me. Help me. Show me the way. Let me become all, You planned for me to become, when my seed was planted and selected by You to sprout in the vineyard of the world. Help this humble salesman. Guide me, oh God.” I will have prayers for guidance.
