Prayers to Ponder

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

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.

“Love is the Divine power of attraction in creation that harmonizes, unites, and binds together.” –Paramahansa Yogananda

“Since love grows within you, so beauty grows.  For love is the beauty of the soul.” -Saint Augustine

God is Love. Love is transcendent, ever renewing and vitalizing.  It brings joy and harmony, blessing everything and everyone it touches.  As a spark of Divine Creation, I am the essence of love.  Love is the creative Principle back of everything, flowing through my whole being;  it is my guide and lights my way.

Love is the healing power, bringing everything into wholeness.  I am born of the energy of Divine Love.  I am a unique expression of the one Love that created me.  I was created out of Love and I am an expression of Love.  I give thanks for the womb that gave me life and the love that supported my growth.   I let go of any pain or judgment about my birth mother.   My eyes are opened to see anew all the love and blessings I have received.  Strong and gentle,  liberating and supportive, love has nurtured my growth and guided me beautifully.  Whether the mother who gave me these gifts of love is with me now or not, I send a blessing of loving gratitude to her today.  I allow the healing power of Divine love to enfold me.

I know this Divine Essence is the very substance of my life.  It flows through all my thoughts, actions, and deeds.  I bask in love in this present moment.  Gratefully, I embrace the love I am.  I release this word to the Law.  It is done.  And so it is.    Amen

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate -Oprah Winfrey

Gratitude is one of the chief graces of human existence and is crowned in heaven with a consciousness of unity.   –Ernest Holmes, the Science of Mind

There is One Life, One Power, and One Infinite Intelligence.  As an individualized expression of that Presence, my primary purpose is to be God in form, co-creating with Spirit what It desires to be as me.

Living life from within, all that is being revealed is perfection in action, causing me to celebrate life.  Celebration is another way to show gratitude.  I am grateful for all that I have received, am receiving, and will receive.  I am at that point in consciousness where I am grateful even for my simple breath.  I celebrate this breath because it is the breath of life, and life is to be celebrated.  The more I celebrate life, the more life has to give to me.  In this celebration I invite others into that high vibration of joy.  I am magnetic, and exert a powerful attraction.  I attract the highest and best for myself and others.  What I want for myself, I want for others because there is only one life.  That is the life of God.  I cultivate a practice of celebration, all that happens in my life, even those things that are not so pleasant.  Those situations are to celebrate because I am provided an opportunity to return to center and know that I am the light of the world.  I am delighted in this truth and am grateful for the growth and awareness being presented to me.  I celebrate optimum health, abundant prosperity, loving relationships and creative self-expression.  I live my Spiritual Magnificence.

I give thanks for my life, for all the ups and downs.  I celebrate my life each and every day.  I am one with this Divine creativity and celebrate that truth.  I am grateful for my deep connection to Spirit. .  I release the power of this word to Spiritual Law, knowing it is already complete in the Mind of God.  And so it is.   Amen

“Let us learn to see as God must, with a Perfect Vision.”  Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind 

There is One Power, One Presence, and One Divine Essence expressing in, as, and through all.  This One Power is the truth of who I am.  I am the Divine in manifest form.

Every experience I have ever had and all I am experiencing now is for my highest good, regardless of any appearance to the contrary.  I gently release any judgment I hold about any person, place, or circumstance.  Instead I see everything as God sees it; perfect, whole, and complete.  I am open and receptive to the grace of God, which is always available.  I surrender my life, heart and soul to this Divine Presence.  I bask in Divine love and wisdom, knowing whatever is happening is my soul’s plan and the path is guiding me to a deeper connection and inspiration.  Seeing with spiritual eyes allows me to move through life releasing anxiety and fear of the unknown.    I seek to see my life from a higher perspective, confident in the activity of Spirit.  My mind is at ease as I go within for understanding, regardless of the situation and trust what is revealed comforts me.  I dream big and pray with confidence, trust and power.  I trust in Divine outcomes.

My heart overflows with gratitude for blessings already experienced.  I await with joyous anticipation the greater blessings the Infinite has in store for me.  I feel this prayer and know it permeates into my sub-conscious and conscious mind.  I give thanks from the core of my being as I release this word to Divine Law.  It is made manifest and it is done.  And so it is.  Amen
