An End of Ramadan Prayer

In the Name of God, the Infinitely Mericful and Compassionate Beloved Lord

At the end of Ramadan, I make this prayer unto the Lord:

Beautiful, Beloved Lord our God on High!
Hallowed be Thy Name in the Heavens and the Earth!
Good is all that You do each and every second in our lives.
Limitless are You in Thy Glory, Beautiful Lord on High!

You have blessed us with another month of Ramadan, O Lord
You have given us the chance to purify ourselves and our souls
Beautiful Lord, Beautiful God, we have tried our best to live up to You!
Yet, sadly, Lord we can never do Your Grace its due justice.

And so, our Beautiful Lord our God, please bless us

Bless us as Your month of Grace comes to a close
Bless us as we eat and drink while yet the sun shines
Bless us as our normal daily routines come roaring back to life
Bless us as we try to learn the lessons of the fast we just completed.

Beautiful Lord, Beautiful God on High!

Thank You for all Your Beauty and Your Grace!
Thank You for all the times we happily broke our fasts with food and drink!
Thank You for all the plenty with which You have blessed us!
Thank You for all the bounty You have provided for us to give in charity!

Lord our God, let us be a force for good in this world!
Let us shake off the covetousness of our souls so that we can help those in need!
Let us learn the lessons of this past Ramadan so that we are better because of it!
Lord our God, do not let the only thing with which we come back from Ramadan be hunger and thirst.

And most important of all, our Beautiful, Beloved Lord our God: Forgive us.
Forgive us when we frowned at having to fast until late in the night
Forgive us when we cringed at the heat of the sun and shuddered at not being able to drink
Forgive us when we sighed and gasped out of weakness throughout those long days of summer
Forgive us for not praying and reciting and magnifying Your Name more than what we did this year.

It is only because of You that we have any good in our lives.
It is only because of You that we can be a force for good in this world.
It is only because of You that we can even fast in the first instance.

And so, Beautiful Lord our God, thank you.
And please bless each and every one of us perpetually until that glorious Day when we will meet You once again.

In Your Most Holy Name, O Lord. Amen.

    Your prayer seems something is missing? You take some words from the holy bible, the prayer which the Lord Jesus Christ teaches the way of how we can deliver our prayer to God,and He said also say in end of a prayer you also must say, in the name of the Father and of The Son and The Holy Spirit Amen……
