Affirmative Prayer for Joy and Gratitude

I live in joyful gratitude
The One Creative Power has created all of life from Its generous nature. This One delights in Its creation, pouring out unlimited goodness to every corner of the universe. This force of goodness, this dynamic energy is alive in all beings.
I am a conduit for this vibrant creative Life Force. It is expressing through me always.
I accept a greater revealing of my spiritual nature. The joy of the Divine fills me and expresses through me as I open my consciousness to It. A natural feeling of gratitude and appreciation colors my experience in joy.
I give thanks for the realization of the spiritual truth about me and I accept it as so.
And So It Is

Peace in Times of Change

The Divine is so much more than words can capture.  Its nature is seen in the changing seasons, the storms, the rainbows, flowers, leaves and daylight returning year after year and it is evident in the consciousness of its reality.  It resides within each one of us.  Its nature is our true nature as we are made of it too.

This Divine mystery that is living as my life understands the shifting sands of time much better than I. Its wisdom orchestrates the universe with grace and power.  Every cell of my body resonates with its wisdom, doing just what it needs to do to keep my body working at its best. Each breath comes and goes automatically, and with trust in this breath I begin to see the bigger picture that the Divine is expressing in me and all around me.

Like the ocean with turbulent waves on the surface, below the surface is calm, deep, and peaceful.  Our mind is immersed in this divine flow of energy only obstructed by our focus on human circumstances which sometimes create imbalance.  So I focus on releasing any obstructions to allowing this divine flow to have its way with me.  I listen to its intuition as I go about my day trusting it to guide me to calmer waters.

Grateful knowing that this Living Spirit abides within me and all those around me, allows me to feel serene and confident regardless of what appears in my experience.

And with this gratitude I release this prayer to the workings of those spiritual laws that have already made it so.

And so it is.  Amen

Affirmative Prayer for Trust

Trust in midst of not  knowing

God's divine intelligence and love bring all life into being. This boundless reservoir of power, goodness and wisdom is always acting on behalf of its creation, is everywhere present with every configuration of life. This compassionate Mother Father God is the all knowing architect and conductor of all that is. No thing is outside of Its loving care and attention. God is the doer, expressing through Its creation.

And so I am made of God's substance, here on purpose through the love of the Creator. I am an instrument of the One. The Divine moves and acts through me. I am inseparable from the One Body, Mind and Spirit. I am guided and sustained by this loving Source.

From this awareness I am willing to surrender to the all-knowingness of God. In the midst of life's messiness and shifting clarity I open to a greater experience of faith in God's infinite wisdom and intelligence. When I don't know something I am willing to trust in God's knowing for me. I rest in this space of not knowing and welcome whatever is being birthed through me. I am comforted that I will be informed of what I need to know when I need to know it. I soften and open to God's perfect timing.

I celebrate and accept this spiritual Truth for and about myself and all of life.

It is known and done in the mind of God. And so it is.
