Pandonganingsun

Jumenengipun salira,
Jejeg tanpa lirwa

Mbingkaraken mega,
Ngasoraken antara

Ical, ananging manggih,
Manah eka kang kapurih

Soca mandheng nuswantara,
Penggalih kantun wonten ing swarga

Punapa inkang dados,
Kabecikan sun lelados.

Those are words in Javanese that Abisai wrote as prayer to self. Those words tells a story of one's determination of doing good in every occasion and condition, and here’s the rough translation :

Pandonganingsun
(Prayer of Mine)

Jumenengipun salira,
(I stand here)
Jejeg tanpa lirwa
(Strong and flawless)

Mbingkaraken mega,
(Disrupting the clouds)
Ngasoraken antara
(Humbling the vast)

Ical, ananging manggih,
(Lost, yet found)
Manah eka kang kapurih
(The One Soul which chosen)

Soca mandheng nuswantara,
(Eyes to earth)
Penggalih kantun wonten ing swarga
(Yet mind stays in heavens)

Punapa inkang dados,
(Whatever happens)
Kabecikan sun lelados.
(Good, I shall do)

I hope those words have some meanings to others too and can be taken as their own prayers too.
