A Prayer for Individuality

Dear God

Help me to be an individual.

Not the individual that I’m told to be when I walk into a shop and see the shiny products on display that they want me to buy and be like everyone else.

Not the individual who decides to stand out from society and not let other people into my life.

Not the individual that is based solely within myself and my selfish ways.

Let me be an individual within you, following the desires you have for me, doing the actions you ask of me, telling the truth in my heart that I should not keep secret.

Let me be an individual who knows, in my heart and my head, that my identity lies in your grace and love and stand out in the world through you.
