Affirmative Prayer to Know Safety and Peace

The one Infinite Presence enfolds all in its loving embrace. Nothing is outside of Its wholeness and perfection. It is the one source and sustenance of all that is, was or ever shall be. Mother-Father God, the Beloved, Spirit, the Divine, however named, is everywhere present in, through and as all life. It is the boundless power and intelligence that continually creates life from itself, eternally giving to its creation. It moves the invisible into form. It is the seen and unseen, the known and unknown, the formed and formless, fully present in every aspect of its creation in every moment. It is the glorious unlimited nature of being. Life abides within the One as beauty, harmony, light and joy. The Shepherd cherishes and gathers all into his boundless care.

And I know I am made of this wondrous stuff. Mother-Father God is the substance and home of my being. It is my very breath and heartbeat. Wherever I am, I am within the One, it is the home in me, around me and as me. I live in the One. There is no place I end and the rest of God, of this life, begins. I am always at home within the love, safety and care of my Creator. Every aspect of my being--- body, mind and spirit are merged within the one life, connected to all the other individual expressions of the Divine. I am a drop in this ocean of love, infinitely cherished and cared for, inseparable from my good.

From this awareness I speak this prayer. I affirm that whatever happens in the world that feels unsafe, however life shows up there is always within me, that unchangeable Spiritual Truth of my being.  As a child of God it is my ballast, my rock foundation that never wavers, it is the ever present Divine within. In the midst of situation, condition and circumstance I turn inward to that place of safety and peace, I lean into God's embrace. I rest in that place of sanctuary, prayer and renewal.  I open to and accept support, strength and safety for my body mind and spirit. I remember that life is always for me, that God is right where I am. God's infinite power, goodness and wisdom created me on purpose, always acting on my behalf. I trust that God as Life knows what it's doing and how to do it. I am abundantly safe in the Shepherd's care.

In gratitude I affirm and rest in this spiritual truth for myself and all of life. 

I let go and let God. This is known and done in the heart and mind of God before these words were spoken. And so it is.

I am a Stand for Peace

 I am a Stand for Peace

Peace is at the very heart of creation. Divinity is always the powerful and perfect expression of Peace.

This absolute Peace lives in me and is always available to me.

I accept that I am a stand for Peace. My actions and my presence are a channel for a greater realization of Peace. I declare that the power of Peace to heal is unlimited and prevails everywhere.

I give thanks for the realization of this truth.

And So It Is

Affirmative Prayer for Healing

Prayer for healing

There is One. It is the whole perfect and complete Life, the Source and Sustainer. It creates from itself, anew in each moment, ever acting with love on behalf of life. No thing is outside of It. The Divine gathers all unto Itself.  It is everywhere present, in around, through and as all. It is infinite Intelligence, Joy and Potential, moving the invisible into form. It is the irrepressible heart and breath of the seen and the unseen, the known and the unknown, ever expressing. 

I am made of this stuff, a part of this one whole, perfect and complete life. I am here on purpose through the will and love of the One, I am the Beloved's vessel and instrument.  I abide in the unshakable foundation, joy and essence of being. I am inseparable from my good, my divine essence. As this is true for me this is true for all life.

From this understanding I affirm this prayer. In the midst of life showing up in all Its forms, in the temporary appearance of dis ease in body, mind or spirit I accept the ever present power of God's love that always acts on my behalf for my highest and greatest good. I open to the divine intelligence within me as I release fear and listen to my heart and body connection. I welcome my good.  I allow my inherent divine nature  to express with ease as I remember the truth of my being. In life's situation, condition or circumstance my heart softens, I am vulnerable and I open to a greater experience of love. I accept help and support as my body, heart and spirit realign with my whole perfect and complete nature.  The depth of my patience and healing correspond  as I welcome the continued revelation of my spiritual truth.

I rest in this awareness and  its continued expression.  With deep appreciation for this and more, I let go and let God, assured that is already known and done in the mind of the One.

And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for Remembering My Divine Nature

There is One Life, whole perfect and complete.  All is enfolded in its irrepressible, boundless nature.  It is Love, creating from Itself, giving to creation in each moment, as the body, mind and spirit of all life. It is the seen and unseen, the known and unknown, everywhere present. Infinite power, potential and intelligence  always acting on behalf of  creation. It brings the invisible into form. 

And so I am made of this one Source, brought into being on purpose through Its power. I am a place where God shows up. This is true of all life. I am inseparable from this one life, a part of this everywhere present divine substance.  I am seamlessly connected to all of life. I live and breathe as an individual expression of life, within the One. This divine stuff is in, around through and as me. I have no edges. I am an instrument and vessel of the One, cherished and supported in and as a part of the one body, mind and spirit of the Divine. I am inseparable from infinite Intelligence, Potential and Love, as it is the nature of my being.

With this understanding I affirm this prayer for myself. I accept a deepening connection to life throughout my daily activities. I slow down and allow the loving Presence to express through patience and appreciation for myself,  others and the world around me. I forgive and support more easily, confident in my and others' ability to grow and navigate however life shows up. I remember that when I affirm and move toward my greatest good, all benefit through our innate connection within the One. I more easily listen with my heart. I give room for life to unfold and guide me, responding to the Divine within. Prayer and contemplation anchor my days.

I celebrate the presence of Spirit in, around, through and as me. I accept this Truth with a grateful heart.

It is already known and done before this word was spoken. I let go and let God. And so it is.
