Prayer for Hya

As she turns 18, Father in heaven,
gift her with the capacity

to look at the world with clear eyes and wander,

to find happiness in simple things,

to stand by the goodness of her heart
and the greatness of her spirit,

to develop her sense of right and wrong,

to value family and true friends, and love always
even when her loved ones disappoint,

to learn from her mistakes
and rise from it a better person, and

to not stop dreaming and being filled with hope,
especially when times turn hard and life becomes trying.
