This reminds me of The Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971). I like the difference here, though, where the author is asking to partner with The Universe–or God. This seems to me to be a great way to achieve your destiny and live a soul-prospering life!
God grant me these: the strength to do
Some needed service here;
The wisdom to be brave and true;
The gift of vision clear,
That in each task that comes to me
Some purpose I may plainly see.
God teach me to believe that I
Am stationed at a post,
Although the humblest ‘neath the sky,
Where I am needed most.
And that, at last, if I do well
My humble services will tell.
God grant me faith to stand on guard,
Uncheered, unspoke, alone,
And see behind such duty hard
My service to the throne.
Whate’er my task, be this my creed:
I am on earth to fill a need.
~Edgar A. Guest
