Contemplate

Dear God,

Be with me for a good day.  I am at loose ends this day, after a day yesterday filled with many good surprises.  I guess I am still reeling from the good surprises.

May I just lean back in my easy chair, take it easy, and listen to the thoughts You give to my mind and heart.  Just contemplate.

This is all You are asking of me today.  I appreciate Your care.

Amen.

Illness

Dear God,

A personal friend and mystic—leader to A Course in Miracles community, friend to A Course of Love community, and friend also to other worldwide traditions—is ill.  He is hopeful in recovery, and I join him in that hope.  He is relatively young, and he has much more he would do for You and Your Kingdom.

Give him today a blessing from Your storehouse of blessings.

Thank You.

Amen.

Peace

Dear God,

I feel close to You, even as I am somewhat agitated this morning. The upset will leave me when I allow time for Your presence in my life to be felt. I ask for Your presence to quell the unrest and give me peace.

I know that Your presence helps in any situation. You are making us stronger by the challenges we face. And greater strength will allow us to grow.

Thank You for soothing me with Your presence this day.

Amen.

Prompting God to Act in Our Lives

Dear God,

I feel secure in this world, despite the difficulties that exist for all of us.  Security is a matter of Your caring, Your love.  And then I think You prompt our nearest and dearest to help when human help is needed.

Give me a rational head on my shoulders, able to cope, always positive in seeing the bright side of life.  Warm my heart with love for others and for You.

Embody all that I want and need in a Deity.  But this goes without saying.

Thank You.

Amen.

Law of Attraction

Dear God,

I focus on what I choose to see in my life; this is the “law of attraction” in full force.  And I add feeling to the thought, because feeling is an added dimension that ensures accomplishment.

I think God planned the law of attraction, mainly, for those who cannot seem to sustain faith in Him.  As I have long known, He is the God of the secular as well as the spiritual. 

We don’t need to think that there is a Higher Law that can overrule us.  It is really the “I” in the deepest portion of our being who might overrule our conscious mind/heart.  In our better moments, we are being ruled from an Unconscious enthralled by the Self as a hologram of God.  And we don’t fully comprehend this Self.

Thank You for giving me love today—Your love, experienced as much as it is possible for me this day to experience.

Amen.

Grateful Heart

Dear God,

I am thankful that a personal concern is resolving, thanks in part to good advice from my husband.  He is such a blessing, in this as in all things!  He knows how much he means to me; I tell him often.

Being grateful for the people in our lives increases our happiness.  Gratitude is such a necessary feature of abundant lives on Earth.

I am grateful today for what You have planned for me in this life.  Thank You, thank You, oh, so much for the blessings You have allowed to descend upon me.

Amen.

Let Heart Rule

Dear God,

Improve my batting average.  I seem to make so many mistakes in my thinking.  I know when I let my heart inform my mind, life smooths out.

I will let my heart rule today.  I think I have been afraid of being too emotional, but the emotions are part and parcel of what I am.  Just as are thoughts.

Thank You for these concepts from A Course of Love.

Amen.

Pandemic

Dear God,

As the world waits to see what the delta variant will do, we must wait patiently.  Thank You for the vaccines, which provide some protection even with this variant.

I am taking a cautious approach.  Pandemics are new to our generation, but not new to our world in past times.  Help us to persevere.

Thank you for letting me know that life can be good and even enjoyable, even with restrictions.

Amen.

An Angel Says “Grow!”

Dear God,

I read recently that everyone’s problems are there so that we will grow.  And the Talmud says that every blade of grass has an Angel bending over it, saying, “Grow.  Grow.” 

I think that You would have us handle these growth opportunities in a smooth and easy way. The solution is always with the problem, something that is A Course in Miracles reassurance. 

Be with me as I remain patient in the timing, patient while you resolve a current dilemma.  Solving problems is always within Your will.  The growth happens while I wait.

Amen.

Constant Care

Dear God,

It is such a mistake to doubt Your care.  The answer to any difficulty is always here when I ask for a solution and then am open to what I “hear.”  You respond.  This is the best and quickest way to an answer to every prayer.

Your constant care keeps me safe and warm.  Your constant care is a blessing that I have come to expect.  Thank You for allowing this expectation to bear fruit.

Amen.
