Heavenly Father Almighty, God from Up Above. I pray for your forgiveness and understanding and for thy divine guidance, so that I may have peace, prosperity, good will, good health and good spirits. It is through thy divine guidance that good fortune may be bestowed upon me. It is not that I am greedy, it is so that I may not be needy. Heavenly Father Almighty, I pray for these gifts in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
