Dear God: Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life. Remove the "have nots," the "can nots," and the "do nots," that I have in my mind. Erase the "will nots," "may nots," "might nots," that may find a home in my heart. Release me from the "could nots," "would nots," and "should nots," that obstruct my life. And most of all, Dear God, I ask that you remove from my mind, my heart, and my life all of the "am nots," that i have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough. Amen.
I thought that this little "nots" prayer fit right in with the Holidays discussions and New Year's resolutions.
