A prayer that captures the essence of the Welcoming Prayer
by Thomas Keating

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome,
 
I welcome everything that comes to me today because I know it’s for my healing. I welcome all thoughts, feelings, emotions, persons, situations, and conditions.
 
I let go of my desire for affection, esteem, approval, and pleasure. I let go of my desire for survival and security. I let go of my desire for power and control. I let go of my desire to change any situation, condition, person, or myself.
 
I open to the love and presence of God and God’s action within. Amen.
