This mantra comes from Sidney Poitier, spoken as he accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute.

Breathing in: May I be true to myself . . .
Breathing out: and useful to the journey.

Other Prayers

God of Life
Lord increase
My zest for living
My vision of glory
My hearing of your call
My grasp on reality
My response to your love
My sensitivity to others
My gentleness to creation
My taste for wonder
My love for you.
David Adam in Power Lines: Celtic Prayers about Work

I Can
I can boldly live out
God's enfleshment in me.
Holy Spirit of Freedom,
inspire me, as you did Jesus,
to be truly myself,
instead of the person
others want me to be.
Edward Hays in The Great Escape Manual
