Prayers to Ponder

And so it is!

“Inspiration is the appearance in your mind of a thought you have never thought before.”

Raymond Charles Barker

I recognize God is all there is.  God is beauty and love expressing as all of creation.  Everywhere I look I see the out picturing of God in manifestation.   I am one with this creative Spirit and Divine infinite wisdom.  I am ready and willing and able to let God be in full charge of my life. I let go and let God have Its way with every aspect of my life. I am exhilarated by the promise of grace that lies ahead of me.  I am moving forward to unlimited opportunities and blessings.  I bask in the glow of the Infinite love of Spirit.  God expresses wisdom and light through me, guiding me every step of the way.  I acknowledge my fearful emotions to be fully present and then dismiss the appearance of fearful thoughts and step into the truth of my powerful spirit.  I move forward knowing my soul is guiding and directing me.  I am filled with strength, courage and determination to move into a higher level of expression as my life.  My faith is strong and I am awakened to my true purpose expressing as my spiritual nature.  I am strong, wise and creative and act with wisdom, courage and resolve.  My mantra is “I surrender to the power and presence of the Divine within me.” I am thankful that the truth is revealed and I am living a joyful empowered life.  Life is truly good.  I am fulfilling my Divine potential.  I accept this as my reality now.  I gratefully release my word into the Law with a humble heart filled with thanksgiving.  I know and accept it is done. And so It Is. Amen.

“There is a place that you are to fill that no one else can fill, something you are to do, which no one else can do.“    

- Florence Scovel  Shinn

There is a pattern of perfection in the Universe, and I am part of Its design of wholeness. I live, breathe, and have my being in God.  My life and God’s life are One Life, I recognize my perfection.

I affirm that when I feel as if I’ve hit a wall moving toward a goal, whether in my relationships, health, or career, I let go of the frustration and I regard it as a signal to take another approach.  I pause for a moment and refer to my spiritual compass-the I Am presence the Divine within to direct and guide me.   Through inner guidance, intuition, and faith, I remove any limitations I may have placed on myself.  I break through to a new understanding and move forward.  I think and act from my I Am Consciousness to discover possibilities I may have not considered.  Acting on the insight I receive, I am part of the transformation that results in achieving my goals.  I am a conduit of Divine grace.  I am surrounded by the Love of God for Its own Creation-individualized, unique and precious.

In this moment, I am grateful, thankful, and appreciative that I am filled with the Infinite Light that casts its glow through me.  I am always being the Essence of my soul.  In deep humbleness, I let it be, and release my word to the Law. It is done.  And so it is.

“But within, in that vast realm of thought where the soul meets God, the Spirit knows. I will listen for that Voice and It will tell me of life, of love, and unity.”   -Ernest Holmes

In this now moment, I recognize there is One Divine Energy form which everything, seen and unseen-manifests in perfection. Infinite Life I sacred; It fills every cell of my being with Its love. I am the physical expression of Spirit.

The power of God is within me.  It sustains, protects and expresses through all I think, say and do.  The more I recognize and acknowledge the power of God, the more I use it with intention.  I align with God through my conscious awareness, and I experience a comfortable flow and order in my life.  Stress subsides and stamina increases, I live more fully.  I use the power of God for good in my life.  With each interaction, task, or activity, I am a channel through which goodness flows. I Reach out to people with kindness and helpfulness.  I let God’s light shine in and through me to bless the world.  I am blessed to be part of a spiritual Universe that supports me with insight and emboldens my consciousness to greater living in love and unity.

With great thanksgiving, I release my word to the Law of Mind knowing it is already so.  And so it is.

“We are all at a certain place in our growth, but there is a complete certainty before us. 

We shall continuously expand and experience more and more of that life which is already perfect.”

- Ernest Holmes   Creative Ideas

From a talk given at the Wiltern theatre, Sunday morning July 4, 1937 By Ernest Holmes

 “True freedom-true liberty-has something cosmic behind it.  If the time has come that modern science has proved that we cannot move a piece of paper without changing the balance of the entire physical universe; if we come to the place where we know that the stuff of which our physical bodies are made is the same stuff of which the planets are made; if we have come to the place where such a profound unity is maintained that physicists believe there is no such thing as disunity in the physical world; then we can easily see that the great spiritual leaders of the ages meant when they told us of that greater unity in which we all live and move and have our being, and that the idea of freedom itself is tied up with the true concept of the unity of good.  If our nature is one, if God is one-and we know that God must be one, for the universe cannot be divided against itself-then we are all tied into an indivisible unity.  We shall have to get back to this unity to find the meaning of freedom.  Nothing in any part of this cosmic whole could be considered freedom that would destroy the liberty of some other part of it.  That would be self-destruction, would it not? As Jesus pointed out two thousand years ago, that would be a kingdom divided against itself.  The kingdom of God is one kingdom.  So we know that true liberty must spring from true unity.  We are bound into a supreme unity; we are tied into an immutable law of irrevocable cause and effect-that is unity moving into action.  Cause and effect is something that happens as a result of the use of unity. Consequently we are one even while we are many, and since each one of us is a part of the whole, if we seek to destroy each other we only ultimately hurt ourselves.  That is the great lesson on life.

I believe that the true spirit of democracy is a spiritual conception where that is freedom, liberty without license, and a flexibility that makes evolution possible on the foundation of freedom.  As we enter into the spirit of the meaning of Independence Day, the day when symbolically, was conceived, the day when freedom, objectively, in our country was announced, we should think of it not merely as a political system or form of government, but we should think of it as a spiritual conception, an idea in the Divine Mind Itself, taking form in human experience; we should learn to love that liberty, and in loving that idea we should learn to tenderly and prayerfully handle the embodiment of that idea and nourish it always to greater strength; we should really conceive again the great spiritually conception of that rugged man of God who said: ... that government of the people, by the people, and for  the people, shall not perish from the earth  And so it is.  

Peace and blessings

"I am bewildered by the magnificence of your beauty, and wish to see you with a hundred eyes...I am in the house of mercy and my heart is a place of prayer."    Rumi


God is love; the rich warm, self giving, unconditional love that pervades all of creation and fills my body with the purity and wholeness of spiritual magnificence. Every breath I take fills me with awe at the exquisite perfection and beauty of which I am the image and likeness. I am witness to this beauty as it fills my soul and displays itself through my senses.


With deep reverence, I enter the inner sanctum of my being, knowing I am in the holiest of place. From   this safe space I view all life with the eyes of Spirit. Because my heart is a place of prayer, it is in perfect harmony with the cosmic rhythm.   My every desire has the Divine stamp of approval; my every wish is granted under the Law of Grace which always says "Yes". I carry the aura of this Truth throughout the day, and it unfolds easily and effortlessly. Anything unlike love is transmuted by the purity of my thought and the love and joy pouring from my heart. My heart is connected to the Oneness of all creation and is open to the vibration of deep self-love and self-compassion.



With a deep sense of gratitude, I release my word into the Law, which is infused with Divine Love. I watch in awe as my good takes form as my life experience. I am dazzled by the Divine. It is done. And so it is. Amen.

 “We are living, walking, talking, loving expressions of God.”  -Raymond Charles Barker


 There is a perfect Divine Presence, and I am one with It.  I am a loving, joyful expression of God within.  My life reveals and glorifies all the good that is God made manifest as me.

As a conscious creator in my word, I use Divine Law for my highest purpose.  This is my responsibility and my blessing.  I focus my awareness on what I want my life to be and demand that Law reflect my consciousness.  I release any apparent obstacles in my path that would prevent me from wholeheartedly sharing who I truly am.  It is my Divine inheritance to live as an expression of Spirit.  I live in an abundant Universe, and I circulate the loving, giving aspects of Spirit to those around me.  Wherever I look, the beauty of God is evident to me; Its Intelligence is apparent in my natural state of harmony and order.  Turning within, I discover a spiritual universe that is filled with creative power.  In this prayerful experience, I realize how my thoughts, words and actions can impact the environment of the outer world.   When I pray I link my prayerful thoughts and determined actions with others.  We are the field of pure Spirit, the I Am intelligence, the Universal Mind of God.  I help cocreate an environment of balance and plenty for all creations.  Holding firmly to a vision of beauty and abundance, I am grateful that God’s creative power is active in the world. 

All is well in my world, and I joyously accept God’s treasures.  With thanksgiving, I release my word to the Law of Mind and allow the Truth to set me free.  And so it is.  Amen.

“Through surrender, spiritual energy comes into this world.  If you suddenly feel very light, clear, and deeply at peace, that is an unmistakable sign that you have truly surrendered.  You then live in a state of nonresistance, a state of grace and lightness, free of struggle.” Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now

There is only One-One Power, One Presence, and One Life.  That Life is whole perfect, and complete; It is my life now.  I love in a state of grace.  My thoughts of peace and joy comfort me.  Today, I know who and what I am.  I am fully aligned with the Power and Presence of Spirit. 

Whenever I feel challenged by a person or a situation in my life, I turn to the presence of God within me.  I draw from that source of love, strength, and courage. I step away from the day’s concerns, worry, doubt and stress to pray, I more fully center myself in God’s presence and allow my faith to surface.  I nurture it with love as I would a seedling.  Any false idea or appearance of lack, loss or limitation is released to the nothingness from whence it came.  I am clear and centered and able to focus on my good. I nourish this faith with affirmations of courage and shine the light of truth on the path ahead.  I am strengthened and I move forward and act wisely.  My faith fills me with peace as I face difficult circumstances.  Faith helps me lovingly release any anxious thoughts about my life and I place my trust in God to guide me in discovering my inner strength.  I have God’s favor and it is my divine birthright.  I claim and declare I am filled with power, courage and determination knowing I am one with the One.

I live, move, and have my being in the ever-present idea of wholeness and love.  I experience Divine Love and surrender to the Truth, knowing I am deeply at peace, and anything false falls away.  I am a master of my mind and my experience.  I am grateful acknowledging this truth.  I release this prayer into the creative medium knowing there is no sweeter or more sacred moment that now.  This is a job for God! It is done.  And so it is.  Amen

Rev. Maryum Morse



It is not your role to make others happy; it is your role to keep yourself in balance. When you pay attention to how you feel and practice self-empowering thoughts that align with who-you-really-are, you will offer an example of thriving that will be of tremendous value to those who have the benefit of observing you.   You only ever uplift from your position of strength and clarity and alignment. -Abraham

There is One Universal Wholeness, One Life I call God.  This life is Law of Good, and it works through me, as me, and is me.  I am that I Am.  I accept and align with who I really am.  I am the heart of pure Spirit.

My heart is a physical expression of my consciousness.  When I feel positive emotions, as I share a tender moment with someone, or when I am alone in serene meditation, this precious organ is calm and peaceful.  My health relates with mind and body in healthy, renewing ways.  I let go of stressful thoughts which allows my heart to work beautifully and supports all of the functions of my mind, body, and soul. My love and intuition are heart-connected and I feel that direct link to the Divine wisdom that guides me.  Therefore, I practice loving kindness, positive thinking and actions.  I forgive others, and I forgive myself when I forget I am that loving space.  I give expression to the love of God within me.  With each thought and action, I bless my heart and at the same time, I bless all people, countries, governments and our beautiful mother earth.

I give joy filled and heart filled thanks for this awareness and I let this prayer go knowing it is answered as I live in a continuous state of gratitude.  Love blossoms forth as the Divine Presence within me.  I celebrate this truth and with great thanks, I know it is done.  I feel it; I know it and I declare it.  And so it is.  Amen.

“The present is ours to enjoy, the future is ours to create.” –Christian D. Larson

There is One Divine Source, One Spirit of love and light expressing in the Universe.  I am one with this Presence and Power.  It is God flowing in me and as me. 

I watch the joy in nature and the simple play between the birds and how the squirrels chase each other.  I watch with delight as two kittens romp and play for the fun of it; how the trees dance in the wind.  Life is constant play upon itself.  The tide has its ebb and flow.  And, I participate in this play of life, this give and take and my own ebb and flow.  There is a rhythm and flow to life that lightens me up, allows me to be in the ebb in order to be in the flow.  As I gracefully flow, I step out of struggle and strain.  There is a playfulness about life, a realization it’s not so serious.  I let go and get out of the way, and I find that more and more things work out on their own.  What a concept. I can let go and allow the Divine to take over.  Even when things seem out of control I find a sense of peace and grace by turning my life over to God.  I say, “This is a job for God!”  Immediately, lightness enfolds me and I feel joy rather than stress.  I choose each moment to be filled with happiness and grace.  I let go of being serious and allow the fun to be reveled and I play with life.

I love my life with this awareness of play; there is newness at every turn.  I am grateful and delighted as I release my word, knowing it returns to me made manifest.  Oh happy day.  And so it is. Amen

  "I am guided by....Spirit to recognize my inner wealth.”Ernest Holmes, 365 days  Science of Mind


Unlimited Source is all there is the Divine of all that exists, the creator and supplier of all of the seen and the unseen.  This Infinite Source is my source.  My life is an expression of Its Life which is all I Am. I Am the Divine in physical form and a conduit for God.

I am sourced and supplied by the One Life out of which I came into being.  As heir to God’s rich kingdom, all the limitless wealth, substance and supply is mine.  I know who I Am and recognize my inner wealth.  I let go of any limitation and realize this Truth and feel the expansion of inner wealth filing every thought of my mind, every cell of my being and every action I take.  I feel it deeply and completely with my whole being.  My expanded consciousness expresses itself easily and effortlessly through ever-increasing financial supply, rich, new ideas, abundant  resources radiant health, loving harmonious relationships and divine blessings.  I am in the rich flow of the abundant Universe, embraced by truth, free in the Oneness of the all Good.  I ask and it is given for I live in a mystical Universe.  The Creative medium creates whatever  thoughts I place into it. 

 I am thankful for this manifestation of Truth and Its unending expression and expanding vibration in my life.  I am filled with a feeling tone of gratitude.  I am so blessed and I continue to claim my good.  It is done for I feel it, I know it and I claim it now.  And so it is.  Amen.
