Reverend Maryum’s Weekly Prayer

God is My Guiding Light

God is the One Invisible Whole.  It is the Source in which my life is anchored. I draw my inspiration from this perfecting Power, and I am filled with energy and joy.

Today, I lovingly chart my course, secure in the knowledge that Spirit is at the helm.  I move smoothly through my day with ease and grace.  I allow love and wisdom to guide all my plans and activities.  Every area of my life functions in perfect accord with my deep belief in Spirits omnipresent action in, as and through me.  I am secure in the knowledge that I am anchored in Truth.  I let go of struggle, I gently go with the flow.  I utilize any seeming delay as an opportunity to relax and gather energy, insight, and perfect ideas for my life.

With God as my guiding light, the journey is exhilarating and joyous.  I am on target, on time, and headed in the right direction.  I am grateful that this is so. And so it is.

Reverend Maryum’s Weekly Prayer

All is a Miracle

There is only One God, which gives me everything.  I am created in the image and likeness of the infinite, and there is only Oneness.  I am an unlimited and boundless expression of God.

As a spiritual being having a human, earthly experience, I am in awesome wonder of the beautiful gift of life.  As I practice mindfulness moment to moment, I observe all that goes on and around me.  I am aware of my thoughts, feelings, actions, and reactions.  I am alert to situations that appear to create disharmony within me as I take hold of my mind, calm my consciousness, and return to my awareness of Divine Presence.  I relax, expecting good in my life and accepting the highest vision of who I am.

I praise and give thanks for my many blessings, knowing I am a perfect idea in the Mind of God, and all is a miracle.  I accept and release my word to Law.  It is done.  And so it is.  Amen

Reverend Maryum’s Weekly Prayer

I Expand My Beliefs

God is the One Omnipresent Source.  I know I cannot be separate from the perfect essence of life.  I am unified with Divine Presence, God expressing as me.

I am forever increasing my understanding of Truth.  I am open to expand my beliefs in perfect harmony with all, in all.  I immediately see the benefits of my heightened consciousness, and it expresses in every area of my life. My body reflects my belief in my inherent perfection, and I feel strong and energetic.  I embrace a greater idea of love, and it reflects in all my relationships.  I deepen my knowing in all my financial matters, and prosperity manifests more than ever before.  My expanded beliefs awaken me to new ideas that enliven and excite me.

I give thanks for this conscious communion.  In loving release, I declare my word is absolute in the Law of Mind.  It is done. And so it is.

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer

The Universe Support Me

I am surrounded by a loving Universe. All I need do to utilize Spirit's Power is to be mindful of It. As I recognize It and become conscious of how It fills me, the Infinite moves through and as me., awaiting my use of It.

I choose all I want my life to be. I am discerning and easily able to separate that which gives me great joy. I see how to be supported by the things I enjoy doing when I let Spirit guide me. I contemplate deeply and am filled with productive ideas that enhance my experience. Money is never an issue, for it is always in abundant supply. Finances are never an effort because there is always more than enough for my wants and needs. I release worry and accept my constant and conscious supply of good. My life is the picture of ease, and I am magnificent.

I shine with Truth and give bountiful thanks as I release my word to the Law of Love, knowing my life is perfection and joy filled. It is done. I feel it. And so it is.

This Week's Affirmation:

“I am surrounded by love.  All is well.” – Louise Hay

Reverend Maryum Morse's Prayer

I Am Divinely Guided

I know Spirit is all there is.  Its guidance is always available to me as I quiet my mind and listen to the still, small voice within.  The Infinite is always present in my mind and heart because I am One with the One.

I open every aspect of my life to the inflow of Divine goodness and allow certainty and contentment to reign.  The undoing of any resistance or unwillingness is my goal.  I am patient, gentle, and compassionate with myself.  Through and as Spirit, I recognize the illusions of the world for what they are.  I let go of misplaced values and see clearly that wellbeing surrounds and enfolds me.  I recognize and accept the inner urging of Spirit.  All my decisions are easy and graceful, for I am divinely guided.  I am deeply connected and listen to my intuition which is the voice of Spirit speaking to me.

In gratitude for the power of my word, I release it in perfect trust that it is already accomplished in Truth, for it has always been.  I allow this prayer to be my present experience, and I affirm it now.  It is done.  And so it is.  Amen.

This week's quote:

“When faith is blended with though, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates in into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.” – Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich

This Week's Affirmation:  I love every part of my authentic self.  I forgive and accept all that I am.

Reverend Maryum Morse's Prayer

I Think, therefore I Am

There is a Cosmic Force in the Universe.  It is Infinite Intelligence I harness and use for my highest good.  This is a Power in which I place my faith.  I am tapped into this Divine mind.

Faith gives life to and transforms my thought to the spiritual equivalent of my desire.  There is a principle that states I am what I am because of the thoughts I permit to occupy my mind.   I know I am constantly attracting everything that supports and produces what I am thinking. I now discipline my mind to constantly focus on the fulfillment of my desires, be it prosperity, health, peace of mind, or creative expression.  Along with my clear intention comes action, and I know my actions are guided by the Divine and for my highest good.  I attract all the resources needed to ensure my prefect outcome.  I have faith and believe I am always held in Infinite love and I am open to receive, for I love myself and accept  my good.

I am grateful for this awareness and know the Heart of God, the Law responds instantly as I release my word.  It is done. I see it, feel and know it. And so it is.

" The Gift of Self-Forgiveness "

In this season of giving, the ability to honestly self-forgive is too often underrated  as the actual dynamic at play in learning to forgive others. Join Stace Barron as he explores the differences between embarrassment, guilt, shame, and self unworthiness; how self-forgiveness is both a psychological and spiritual growth factor; and summarizes some of the touchstones in the process of learning how to give yourself the gift of self-forgiveness and its ramifications for psychospiritual deepening.

Guest speakers Stace & Brie Barron give the talk this service in Rev. Maryum Morse’s stead, as she heals from a back spasm. Remain after service @ 12:30pm for Stace & Brie’s workshop of the same title.

We will share in good music from our music director - percussionist & vocalist Eje Lynn-Jacobs and our guest keyboardist Bruce Bigheno as they deliver the tunes live!  Practitioner Denise, RScP is scheduled for pulpit duty to help with the message.

This week's quote:

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” – C.J. Jung

This Week's Affirmation:

I love every part of my authentic self.  I forgive and accept all that I am.

 

Reverend Maryum Morse's Prayer

I Appreciate My Capacity to Forgive

Spirit, Infinite Intelligence, God, Ultimate Power, Light illuminates all.  This light shines within me, and all in this world.  We are One with the Divine essence of love.

I free myself from the chains that have bound me to the past when I practice personal forgiveness.  This opens the way for me to see the glory and blessings that surround and fill me.  I take a moment to stand in appreciation of my capacity to forgive.  The choice I make to release the past is mine to make and it cannot be taken from me.  Through forgiveness, I make myself available to the Divine. I am no longer distracted by the outer world for I am attuned to the presence of God.  I forgive myself for holding onto limiting, false beliefs about who I am, and I let go of the past.  I love, honor and nurture myself.  New bright understanding of my true nature replaces old, worn out beliefs. How good it is to feel this new reality and truth.

My gratitude for this awareness is boundless as I understand and celebrate my life.  I am deeply grateful for the miracle of God, the miracle of me.  I release my word into Divine Love.  It is done.  And so it is.  Amen
