Dear God: May we become wise enough to teach compassion and self-worth in our schools, instead of memorizing vast amounts of historic trivia that will never have practical value to us.

Dear God: I've learned that justice may not find us but karma always will.

Dear God: I envision a world bucket for peace in which each kind act is like a coin dropping with a clink into the bucket bringing a little more happiness to us all.
Dear God: None are wiser than those who are introspective enough to recognize their own foolishness.
Dear God: May I become an angel in body, serving the needs of others, while seeking no recognition or gratitude in the process.
Dear God: Each day may I be the kindness I wish I could find in others.
Dear God: May I never criticize homeless people for living in tents. Many people live in tents for family vacations. The difference is most homeless people have no choice.
Dear God: If success in life is measured in money, a commodity left behind at death, what is the value of love, a commodity that enriches the world and goes with us when we leave.

Dear God: May we have the courage to grow beyond our current achievements, willingly seeking greater accomplishments that may lie beyond the horizon.

Dear God: May we each behold the magic that surrounds us, starting with our own beauty and the beauty of those making this life’s journey with us.
Dear God: I’ve learned no-one ever grew happier or wiser nor long sustained success by belittling others.
Dear God: Please give us the courage not to conform to the conventional expectations of others, for if we do we can never accomplish anything new and better, nor discover what special talents we may possess.
Dear God: I’ve learned gratitude leads to abundance, and abundance is to appreciate what we have while we have it.
Dear God: I can never bring peace to the world until I can find it within myself.
Dear God: I know no-one ever stood taller than those who stooped to help others in dire need.
Dear God: Wherever in the world we are, may we welcome immigrants, recognizing them as extensions of ourselves, and as family members as dear as our own blood relatives.

Dear God: I’ve learned each defeat contains a valuable lesson, each failed relationship, wisdom for better future relationships.
Dear God: I prayed for peace only to discover that in human history peace has never come from divine intervention nor from violence but always from compassion, kindness and generosity.
