Prayers to Ponder

And so it is!

During this time of great loss and suffering from the recent bombings, use the following to center and stay in a place of love while feeling a sense of Divine protection.  Say: “I am one with God.  I am safe and secure.”   Rev. Maryum Morse

O Eternal Spirit in whom I live and move and have my being
You are the foundation of all that is
Where you are is sacred and holy
I surrender to your will so heaven and earth may meet in me
Thank you for this day, and all the beauty that surrounds me
Thank you for nourishment for body, mind, and soul
Forgive me when I ignore your will
As I seek to forgive those I feel have hurt me
Help me feel the oneness of all life
And raise my awareness so I see the perfection in all things
For your kingdom is of the spirit where life is eternal
These things I ask in the name of all the holy and revered teachers
Who have paved the way for my enlightenment.

"Your Vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens."  - Carl Jung


I recognize God as the infinite source of all creation. God is love. God is the source of my life and I am filled with Divine love, harmony and peace . My heart is at peace, my mind is at peace, my life is at peace.   In this knowing, I am at peace. I am one with the One.


I commune with the essence that flows through all of life. I listen to the inner whisperings telling me I am pure love and I am absolute perfection. I am reminded of my magnificence. I use the power of focus to illumine the infinite possibilities available to me.   I see the joy and diamonds sparkling in each situation. The power of this practice guides me to the next step on my path. I awaken to my truth and in any circumstance I choose love and I choose peace. I look into my heart and ask "What would love do now? "What would peace do now?" I listen to the answer and I know what to do. As a divine emanation of pure love, I am guided by the love that is my true nature. I choose love today. I choose me today. I vibrate as the frequency of joy overflows from me and touches every aspect of my life. I am awakened to love.


I am grateful that all of my needs are met. I am grateful for my friends and family. I am grateful for all the grace and blessings in my life. I say "Yes" to the good available to me. My arms are open wide to receive this good now. I release this prayer into the Law knowing this prayer has already been answered in the mind of God within me. It is done. And so it is. Amen

“An endless moment of ecstasy brings my focus back to the breath.  Each moment, each breath is pure bliss.  I smile for the day as my heart guides me.”  Andrew Rouse

There is One Power in the Universe.  I focus my awareness on Oneness.  All that is and ever will be is right here in this moment.  The One Source that flows through everything also flows through me.

Though responsibilities, interests and distractions compete for my attention, I am blessed with the ability to focus.  I maintain space in my mind and heart for stillness and quiet.  In this inner sanctuary, I find peace.  I feel God’s presence and love.  In the midst of any activity, I pause for a moment and consciously shift my attention inward.  I touch the Divine mind and I experience a healing and soothing peace that sweeps over me.  During extended meditation, I go even deeper into the silence.  I welcome this respite and feel myself relax in mind and body.  I am blessed by this conscious connection with the flow of good.   The endless flow of love pours through every part of my mind, body and spirit.  I celebrate the beauty of this moment.  I know the Universe is always conspiring to support my every desire.  I allow my heart to guide me.  I follow Divine intuition.

I am thankful as I breathe in the Life that sustains all things.   I am grateful for the peace and love of God. I am so blessed.  I release my word to the Law of Mind, knowing it is always heard and supported.  I embrace the I Am that I am.  And so it is.

“Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person.  Love is an act of faith and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.” - Eric Fromm


God is love-the rich, warm, self-giving, unconditional love that pervades all creation and fills every cell in my body with the purity and wholeness of Its spiritual magnificence.  Every breath I take fills me with awe at the exquisite perfection and beauty of which I Am the image and likeness.

With reverence, I enter the inner sanctum of my being, knowing I am in the holiest place.  From the security of this vantage point, I view all life with the eyes of Spirit.  Because my heart is a place of love, it is in perfect harmony with the Universal rhythm.  My every desire bears the Divine stamp of approval; my every wish is granted under the Law of Grace.  I carry the aura of this Truth throughout the day, and it unfolds effortlessly.  Anything unlike love is transmuted by the purity of my thought and the love and joy pouring from my heart.  I am love and feel Divine love within my heart, mind and soul infusing my life.  I am transformed and renewed.

With deep gratitude, I release my word to the Law, which is urged forward by Divine Love.  I watch in awe as my good takes form. It is done. And so it is.  Amen.

 “I give no power to anything other than consciousness.” –Robert Bitzer

The Divine Spirit prospers me in every possible way.  I praise the wealth of God.  I now claim it for my own.  My money is God’s money.

I believe in the goodness of God’s wonderful money.  I am not self-stingy.  I like money and appreciate all that I can do with it for myself and those I love.  I never condemn money in any way.  I know its spiritual origins.  I rejoice in all the good things that I can do with it.  It circulates in all my affairs.  It pays all my debts and gives me freedom of action.  I have a healthy respect for God’s money,  and I use it with wisdom.  I always use the power of money rightly.

I am open and receptive to unexpected money coming to me in unusual and wonderful ways.  I now erase from my subconscious mind every concept of limitation or lack.  I never criticize the way other people spend their money. I mind my own business.  My financial consciousness is healthy and expanding.  And so it is.

“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”

-Morrie Schwartz, Tuesdays With Morrie

Spirit is alive in infinite splendor, unfolding as the harmony of all creation.  The grandeur of God finds Its being in the individualized perfection as my life.  I am one with the all-knowing Divine Mind, and with this oneness as It is the creative expression of all that I Am.

In the world around me, there are many forms of power.  Regardless of outward appearances of wealth, strength or authority, the power of love is greater than any power in the world.  I turn my attention within to the presence and power of God’s love that moves in and through me.  I let go of fear and hate in order to know the fullness of God’s love.  With faith, I am able to love even those who seem to be my adversaries.  I witness the Divine essence within them, and I am unattached to their unloving or negative personality. It is not their truth and I forgive them.   I let God love them through me and simply allow the love to flow.  Love is the harmonizer, unifying people one to another.  With love, I see the nothingness of petty differences and the power of cooperation and unity in all humanity.   

It starts with me! I surrender and give expression to the overflowing love of God within me.  In the One Mind, all life is perfect; in this perfection, I have my being in love.  As I look around, all I see is love looking back at me.  It is alive and expressing as me, emanating fully in my heart and soul.    Wherever I find myself, I am immersed in the depth of Divine love.  It washes over me and is the fullness of my experience.  I stand in Truth and make all things into love.  Love is the foundation and my affairs unfold as love’s promise to the world.  I Am the vibration and power of love. 

Right here and now, I celebrate filled with joy and thanksgiving for all my blessings.  In this moment, my word has volition and is complete.  It is done as I declare it to be.  And so it is.  Amen.

“God stands at the door and knocks; WE MUST OPEN IF WE ARE TO RECEIVE.”                                          -Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

There is only the One Presence-God.  God continuously knocks at the door of my consciousness because it is the nature of God to love unconditionally.  I recognize myself as the treasured expression of God right here and now.  I am truly loved, supported, blessed, and nourished by the Divine Love flowing through me, as me, and for me.

I embody Spirit-inspired patience which allows for the unfoldment of the highest good.  I am not waiting for something good to happen.  I know something good is happening, and I am ready to receive it.  Another way to describe my patience is that I am letting go of worry and concern and letting God express wisdom through me.  With this combination of releasing the negative and accepting the good, I recognize the best options or considerations as this bright new reality is being birthed through me.  I pay attention to the Divine call of my soul by turning within and listening to what my heart has to tell me.  I trust God’s will is always the grandest vision.  I choose to look beyond where I have been and open to a whole new vista of infinite possibility.  The past is the past and has no place in this now moment.  I accept these creative changes that easily take place, and I fully manifest this new paradigm.  As I let go and let God, I don’t react to situations during this time of shift growth, and change; I respond from Spirit within.  Relaxed and at ease, I go about doing what is mine to do.  I allow space for others to do what is theirs to do.  This paves the way clear for a divine solution for the vision to unfold.  Nothing can stand in my way, for I am in perfect time and space. Everywhere I am is holy ground.  Dazzle me God!

I take one step toward Spirit just as Spirit takes two steps toward me.  I am receiving my blessings and grace is happening in all forms and in every area of my life continuously. I am excited and grateful.  Oh, how good it is! I release my word into the Law with a deep connected feeling tone  and claim this truth.  It is done right here, and right now.  And so it is. Amen

“...Imagine There’s no Countries, Isn’t Hard to do.  Nothing to Kill or Die for, And no Religion too.  Imagine All the People Living Life in Peace”

....John Lennon


“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof...”

I know there is but One Mind, which is the mind of God, in which all people live and move and have their being.

I know that is a divine pattern for humanity and within this pattern there is infinite harmony and peace, cooperation, unity and mutual helpfulness.

I know that the mind of humankind, being one with the mind of God, shall discover the method, the way and the means best fitted to permit the flow of divine love between individuals and nations.

Thus harmony, peace, cooperation, unity and mutual helpfulness will be experienced by all.

I know there shall be a free interchange of ideas, of cultures, of spiritual concepts, of ethics, of educational systems and scientific discoveries-for all good belongs to all alike.

I know that, because Divine Mind has created us all, we are bound together in one infinite and perfect unity.

In bringing about world peace, I know that all people and all nations will remain individual but unified for the common purpose of promoting peace, happiness, harmony and prosperity.

I know that deep within every person the divine pattern of perfect peace is already implanted.

I now declare that in each person and in leaders of thought everywhere this divine pattern moves into action and form, to the end that all nations and all people shall live together in peace, harmony, and prosperity forever.

So it is now.   Amen.

“Infinite life pours from the essence of a rose where galaxies upon galaxies emerge.  This simple beauty sends forth a wave of love with a smile of peace.”  Andrew Rouse

Infinite Intelligence, as love, is everywhere present.  The essence of God is love; It is all there is in the Universe.  Divine Presence flows in and as me.  I am in Its Oneness.

The heart symbolizes the center of divine love.  Through the love in our hearts we are moved to forgive, to serve others without reservation, to work unselfishly for the good of humankind.  Divine love heals and blesses.  In the stillness of prayer, I draw God’s healing love into my heart.  If I have let hurt or fear build a wall around my heart, I gather the courage to let divine love fill me and deflect any pain or suffering.  I recognize that Infinite Intelligence manifests with perfection in my experience as I let go of any blocks and old content.  Nothing can rob me of the joy of giving and receiving love; nothing can block its flow.  A heart full of love knows no fear.  I claim the right to love and to be loved.  I am a magnet for love that draws more to itself to me; I am a mirror that reflects God’s love into the world.  In the beauty of this moment, I focus only on the love, realizing it surrounds me and move through me, just as it expresses in all of life.  I immerse my body, my being, and my spirit in Truth as I relax into this wisdom.  All my relationships unfold in love, peace, and harmony.  I allow prosperity to circulate abundantly in my life and with ease and grace.  Every cell in my body temple is in perfect balance, and I experience perfect health.  My beautiful unity with life keeps me in gratitude, and I am joyfully, happy and free.

I am thankful, for I am blessed.  I feel the gratitude.  In pure bliss, I release my word to Law, knowing all is well.  It is done. And so it is.
