PITIK-BULAG:   Wake Up, My Soul
 
Dear God,
I come to your loving presence,
begging for the grace of spiritual awakening.
If this is your will, grant my humble prayer,
and bring glory to your name, and not mine.
 
Let me see the hidden beauty in the ordinaries.
Let me hear your voice in the midst of confusion.
Let me feel your presence in this chaotic world.
Let me taste your love as I meditate your Words.
Let me see a lost friend in those who persecute me.
Let me see a brother to those who are hungry and thirsty.
Let me find rest and consolation in my prayer.
Let me see your wisdom in my pain and sorrow.
Let me smile at my mistakes and failures.
Let me glimpse signs of hope in the midst of darkness.
Let me find freedom from my sins and addictions.
Let me breathe your Holy Spirit and empower me.
Let me see the grandeur of ordinary things.
And let me smell danger when temptation comes.
 
Like a student, teach me what counts most in this life.
Like a merchant, allow me to invest in heavenly things.
Like a fisherman, let me catch souls for your kingdom.
Like a soldier, let me bravely fight all forms of injustice.
Like a lover, let me seek your undying love in my prayers.
And like a beggar, let me beg for your love and mercy.
 
Let me see that everything is grace, and freely given.
Let me understand that the beauty of life is in giving.
Disturb me, when I tend to think of nothing but myself.
Console me, when fear, anxiety, and sadness bother me.
Embrace me when temptations and sins crudely attack me.
 
O Jesus, my Lord, and my Master,
as I begin this wonderful day,
inebriate me with your SPIRIT.
Wake and cheer me UP!
Tell me, “Everything will be well. TRUST.”
Flood my soul with your HEALING.
Inject in me a new lease of STRENGTH!
And ignite the FIRE OF LOVE in me
to seek the least, lost, and lonely.
 
Let me rise and shine,
this time, with more fire.
 
Amen.
 
– Pitik-Bulag
