Prayer to Heal Cynicism

Dear God, 
When I read prayers and affirmations, I am filled with hope. Yet, when I look at the world around me, they seem like wishful thinking, adult fairytales. I have a hard time believing any of it. The true powers in the world appear to be master manipulators, greedy corporations, and corrupt politicians. Today, to the best of my ability, I surrender my cynicism to you. Help me to know that you are still in charge of the world and that I can rely on you. Help me to know in the very core of my being that with you, all things are still possible. Help me to see your handiwork in all that is around me. Help me to open to your abundance, health, and joy. Shine your light so that I can know that you are walking beside me and that I am loved. A-men
