“The Healing Power of Prayer”

Dear Loving Presence, Sweet Divine Being; the healing power of prayer affords not only the prayer but the prayed for, the prayed for to receive the benefits of what prayer is destined to give.  As I pray for others I actually am praying also for myself.  Mirroring the issues and challenges and circumstances that are appearing in front of me to pray for others I am experiencing many of those same experiences within my own being.  That is why when I pray for others prayer is for them as well as it is for myself.  We all benefit from the beautiful-ness of prayer.

I find myself praying more today than I have prayed in many times of my life, and it’s not because I’m praying for something that is bothering me and I need a resolution no.  And it’s not because I am praying more because there is so much woe and despair in this world no that is not the reason either.  I find myself praying constantly and consistently because that is a state of mind that I enjoy being in.

To pray for others to keep in constant prayer the idea that all will be well because all is God that requires a continuous steady stream of 24-hours of prayer at all times.  I enjoy praying, I enjoy being in prayer, I enjoy praying with others, I enjoy praying for others, I enjoy praying.  And I don’t think it is something that has just come upon me, I think I have prayed always even as a little child, and my favorite prayer was always the Lord’s Prayer.  The Lord’s Prayer was and is my favorite prayer.  But then sometimes a prayer is as I found out from a sister in my woman’s group I attend “Coffee and Conversation”, sometimes the prayer can be “help me”, or sometimes the prayer can be “thank you, thank you, thank you.”

And I like to see myself praying affirmatively; always praying that it is already being given to me.  Because that is the way the Heavenly Father hears my prayers.  The Heavenly Father, the God’s presence within myself, hears my prayers stating it is already yours my child, it is already yours my sister, it is already yours my love, it is already yours.  I pray as if it is already mine because it is mine to receive.  I pray like it has already been given to me because it has already been given to me, and I pray as if I am to receive it because I have already received it.  No it may not be in this inkling of time, I may not see it manifested at this exact moment, but my prayer has been answered I must understand that and I must remember that.

I must always understand that whatever prayer I have prayed that it has been heard and it will come to pass.  In what spirit do you pray in the name of, the spirit of already knowing that what you have prayed for is yours to receive?  Or is it the spirit of begging for what you want because you see no other way?  That is how we have always prayed.  Lord please help me to get through this.  Instead of seeing for ourselves that the Heavenly Father is already providing us with the assistance that we need to get through any obstacle, challenge, or circumstance, we just need to open up our minds and believe and have faith that what we are actually seeing is not the reality that the Heavenly Father has for us to receive.

I want to see the reality that is given to me from the Heavenly Spirit; I want to walk in the reality that is given to me from the great I Am.  I am not interested in the reality that man is showing me because man’s reality is not my reality.  Yes, I pray, I listen, I hear my spirit, the Heavenly Spirit telling me, allowing me, bringing out from me what is needed to manifest the dreams, the prayers, the goals, the aspirations, and the challenges that will become blessings, I see those coming to pass.  That’s why I’m in constant prayer; praying constantly allows me to always be grateful for all that I am given, always being grateful for all that I receive, always being grateful for this life that I lead, always being grateful.

Yes, prayer has been one of the most amazing things in my life; I thank you Heavenly Spirit for this opportunity to share with others my feeling, my true true feeling on prayer.  Thank you my Father, for this amazing time that I am experiencing in my life, this time of knowing that my life has been so amazingly beautiful since I have been touched and re-awakened to your consciousness within my life.  Oh prayer is such a gift, so I ask of you today to use prayer in such a way so that you can see for yourself and others the good that is coming into your life.  I ask of you today to see for yourself what it feels like to want it all to be such a blessing, I ask of you today to remember the greatest prayer we can ever ever give, the loudest prayer that comes from our heart that can ever be heard, is the prayer that says thank you, thank you, thank you I am so grateful, I am so grateful, I am so grateful, and so it is, Amen and amen, God bless you all

“The Beginning of a Family”

The beginning of a family; the beginning of a family sometimes starts so innocently, so lovingly without even knowing it you have touched someone’s life, who then touches your life, who then becomes a part of your life forever- more.  I heard a story over the weekend about a magnificent expression of love, nurturing and caring which started a family.  So I have this one girlfriend and she is just, she’s just an amazing woman, she’s talented, creative, full of life and very much a nurturing woman to young people.  Always seeing the good always seeing for them what they cannot see for themselves; so in comes this young man at her job, and he has been experiencing a little bit of growing pains with his new position, trying to find his way in the web of State service and trying to understand the expectations that are expected of him in the position that he has.

And what she found was so amazing about this young man who she would lovingly encourage on a daily basis was the fact that he loved his mother, he loved his mother so much that he had a picture of her on his desk for the whole world to see.  My mother is the light of my life he would say.  And as time went on and their relationship continued to blossom of one that was to became a surrogate mother or let’s say a work mother. She realized and found out that he had in fact lost his birth mother.  I am not sure exactly how she came to pass maybe it might have been from a long illness or maybe it might have been something that happened suddenly, but regardless of how and why it happened the life event had occurred.

And as she and her other co-workers went to the funeral of the mother of the young man, she never thought to realize that that day their relationship would change the destiny of her life.   That day she showed such kindness to the young man in front of his Father that he too felt a connection to this woman.  Well time went on and months became a year and they ended up seeing each other again the Father and the woman, they realized they had a lot in common and some of that commonality was the fact that they were both nurturers to others especially young people.  And then the day occurred when they both realized that because of the connection of the son, of his son to this woman the work mother, that they two had a connection for each other.  It is amazing how a family becomes a family, sometimes you’re not looking out into the world for love to come into your life, but the universe is looking out into the world for love to come into your life for you, oh the story has a happy ending.

And as this man and this woman continue to see each other occasionally off and on at different events and different conferences and different meetings of the minds in regards to the two things that they found were just significant to them; youth and seeing them making a difference in their lives.  The woman continued to be the work mother for the son and even helped plan the young man’s baby shower and she had no idea that eventually the baby shower would be for her own grandchild because she eventually married the Father of the son, a family becoming a family.

So I say to you today let the universe guide you into finding for you the family that becomes a family that you had no idea you needed in your life.  Maybe the family that becomes a family is the family that you were destined to receive all along, and maybe the family that becomes a family will be the family you’ll have for the rest of your life.  May the Heavenly Spirit show you by your good deeds how you affect the lives of others; because you never know whose watching, you never who whose seeing, you never know whose experiencing, you never know whose excited that your presence has come into their lives.  But the Heavenly Spirit knows, and the God presence within you reveals that you have done a good job dear servant, well done dear servant, well done dear sister, well done new family and so it is, Amen and amen.

“Today I have a new vision to bestow upon my Vision Board”

Today I have a new vision to bestow upon my Vision Board.  Today I have a new vision to shine out into the world my visions of all good.  Today I have a new vision and that vision is that I see my life positively moving forward in the direction of my destiny which will be what God and I have deemed necessary to continue on.  The writing, the speaking, the overlaying of confidently shining good into my life, I see a new vision on my vision board.

I see a new vision on my vision board and it has allowed me to open up my mind even further to new possibilities of dreams and goals and aspirations.  I see a new vision on my vision board and the new vision that I see, the new vision that has been foretold to me, the new vision that I am excited to share is the vision of the future; my future, my destiny, my shout out into the universe that says yes I will receive this and thank you for allowing this to be into my sphere of influence.

I have a new vision for my vision board; I see myself in a new home, one that I own and one that is mine to bring forth from it more love and laughter in my family.  I see in my future the new job, the job that I have been waiting for, the job that I have seen, the job that I had been told was on the horizon, the job of speaking to thousands and thousands of people about the possibilities that are open for them just as I realized the possibilities that are open for me.  I have a new vision on my vision board, I see myself with my Beloved moving to a new land, experiencing a new culture, understanding a new people, and finding a new way as we blaze our trail into the unknown of a new homeland, visions on my vision board.

And I see you my Father, I see you allowing me to go forward, I see you allowing my life to continue, I see you providing me with all the nourishment of my soul that allows me to provide all the nourishment with my words to the world.  I see a new vision on my vision board, I see a new opportunity on my opportunity cycle, I see a new beginning in my beginning wheel I see something new coming along the horizon.  I thank you Father for this newness that is coming into my life.  I thank you Father for the opportunity to be anew again, and I thank you God that I may not know where I am always going but I do know because of you it is somewhere that I need to be, and because of that it is somewhere that is necessary for me and because of that I will willingly good where you lead me thank you my Father.

For in the name of Jesus, in the name of your son the Way Shower, I am grateful to be shown the way.  May today be just another day that allows me to see where I am destined to be, as I see where I have been before and as I see where I am going forward to, which allows me to see what the destiny in front of me shines out to allow me to see as well.  Thank you my Father for the blessings, and so it is.  Amen and amen

“Lord make me an instrument of your peace, Lord make me an instrument of your peace”

Dear Heavenly Father, Sweet Loving Presence; the beginning stanza of the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi, begins with Lord make me an instrument of your peace.  And when I read that prayer, when I heard that line, when I heard those words I realized that that is what I have always wanted to be an instrument of peace.  An instrument to be used to bring about peace to this world, an instrument to be used to bring about peace into my existence, an instrument of this world to bring about peace to where peace is not established at this time.

Lord make me an instrument of your peace, allow me to send out into the world, into the universe, into this existence all your love and all of your love, and all of your love that will bring about peace, Lord we need peace so badly.  And as we begin on the cusp of the World Day of Prayer, the Unity World Day of Prayer, the most amazing day to me in this and every calendar year; a day when we reflect upon on what we ourselves can do, what we ourselves can be, what we ourselves can bring about in this world, we must think about being an instrument of peace.

Lord make me an instrument of peace; make me an instrument that will allow peace to be a part of the conversation.  Allow me to be a thorn in the side of anything that is not here to bring about peace in this world, for that is what I want to achieve, that is what I want to bring, that is what I want to feel, that is what I want to see satisfied.  Lord let me be an instrument of peace.  Lord let me be an instrument of peace; let me see within myself that all that rings through my mind, through my mind is ways and avenues and boulevards and bends where I can find a way to bring about peace into this world.

Lord let me be an instrument for peace, let me be an instrument for peace that where there is hatred, I find a way to bring about love.  Where there is uneasiness, I find a way to bring about peaceful resolution and where there is concern and confliction, and confliction I find a way to bring about harmony, I find a way to bring about harmony.  Lord as we embark upon this day and this evening to bring about peace to this world, as we embark upon tomorrow, Thursday, September 10th, the Unity World Day of Prayer, let us pray my Father, let us continue to pray my Father that we be used in any form of peace that we can be.

That we be used in any form of resolution that brings about a peaceful conclusion.  Let it be that we be used in any way, shape or form that can allow this world to see how meaningful peace is to all of us, how meaningful peace is to all of us.  I thank you God for allowing me to be used as an instrument for peace. I thank you my Father for allowing me to see myself as a way that brings about peace to this world.  And I thank you my Father for we will one day, we will one day see that the only things that are important in this world, the only things that are important in our lives, the only things that will bring us each together to one another is peace.

May the love of you continue to show us how important peace is.  May the love of God continue to show us how important peace is, may the love of God continue to show us how important peace is to our existence, to our world, and to each other.  Thank you God for the peace that you have given me, thank you God for the blessing of peace that you will saturate around this world and thank you God for we see it now, we see it now Lord, we see the importance of it now, we see the importance of peace now, we see the importance of peace, and so it is.  Amen and amen, amen and amen
