Affirmative Prayer

Dear Ones …“We do not create in the sense that we make something out of nothing, but only in the sense that we make something out of something.  And we create a new form because we are equipped with a mind to think and to feel and to will and to imagine.  So everyone who makes a demand on spiritual Law will cause the Law to respond in the only way It can – in terms of the demand made.”  … Holmes Creative Living p. 57.1

In this month of “Living Everyday Wonder – Work,” I ponder the work I do– the “privileged vocation” that Henri J.M. Nouwen refers to, “In a world so torn apart by rivalry, anger, and hatred, we have the privileged vocation to be living signs of a love that can bridge all divisions and heal all wounds.”  I sometimes question whether I am using the Law to congruently demonstrate my privileged vocation – my calling to bridge and heal.  How about you?

I invite you to join me as I “make a demand on spiritual Law”…

Knowing that there is only one Creative Source, the One I call God, that has created everything from nothing, that has sprung forth of Itself into and as all that is, I sense at that depth of my being that I am an out-picturing of It.  I am a divine expression just as everyone and everything are divine expressions.  I am/We are imbued with the ability to create new form “because we are equipped with a mind to think and to feel and to will and to imagine.”

I choose now to use that mind to remember that each expression of the Divine is an essential component in the Universe and that the boundless Universe is my home.  I honor each.  I accept my responsibility to remain keenly alert to how my thoughts, words and deeds impact locally and globally.  I make life-affirming, wholesome choices on behalf of myself, our planet and all its inhabitants.

I am grateful to be a conscious activity of God.  I am so grateful for the knowledge and power to make something out of something that I use them wisely.  I am grateful the Law responds and for the beneficial results.

Knowing that my thought – my prayer – already known in the Mind of God, is assured of fulfillment, I commit to continuing to do my part to bridge all divisions and heal all wounds.

And so It is!

In Love and Gratitude,

Rev Trish
