Introspection

Dear God,

The Workbook of A Course in Miracles is helping me a great deal.  Everyone needs some time for introspection, contemplation, prayer, meditation.  The Workbook is masterful that way.

Thank You for Your part in channeling words from the celestial realm.  We need those words now more than ever.

Amen.

Freedom in Knowing

Dear God,

Even as I posted about guidance yesterday, I know that You are leaving me on my own more than You used to.  I wonder if You are giving me more autonomy from simply a knowing.  

A Course of Love talks of a “knowing.”  And this signifies greater freedom for me, for this knowing partakes of my own essential Self.

Thank You for guiding my thoughts about this puzzle.

Amen.

Love Our Nearest & Dearest

Dear God,

May we draw close to our nearest and dearest today in a time when we hope the pandemic will be ending soon.  May we take from this difficult time the love that You have showered on us, and may we become better people as a result.

Teach me how to love ever more deeply and ever more greatly.  Thank You for my nearest and dearest, a blessing beyond compare.

Amen.

Looking toward the Future

Dear God,

I am looking to the future, when the pandemic, unrest, and economic uncertainty are over.  I am praying that this new day will come soon.

It does nobody any good to look at the dark side of events in our world.  Our positive mind slant, focused in prayer, does work for the good.

Thank You for providing emotional support during these tough times.

Amen.

Pray for Peace

Dear God,

I am very relaxed this morning.  Thank You for keeping me peaceful, even in the midst of all that is troubling our world.  It helps no one to get overwrought about circumstances beyond our control.  Only prayers help.

My prayer today is that the peace I feel can extend in ever-widening circles, beginning with my nearest and dearest, my husband–and then my unseen friends who view this blog.

Thank You for answering this prayer.

Amen.
