Day Eighteen

by Grace {illustrated}

Have you ever really thought about prayer?

What does praying mean to you?

What are your expectations from prayer?

What is your purpose for prayer?

How does prayer work?

Ready to  explore this topic as never before?

Let’s journey within, Souljourner

Spiritual Practice

Such joy

Practicing the Presence

Here & Now

.

Such peace

praying without ceasing.

BEing

in constant communion with the

One

Power & Presence

the

One

Substance & Source

of

all

.

In this awareness of the reality of all

I hear the Master speak.

I know

the voice that is heard

is the word made flesh.

I listen.

I am led.

All paths are known.

I am at peace.

I give thanks for this still small voice

the one & only voice that rules & reigns the universe.

I accept the Power that I am as I abide in this Presence.

As I am One with this Presence & Power & Intelligence .

Prayer is  Answered.

I am in the Kingdom.

 { Take  time to  abide in the Kingdom. Now.}

In this stillness

in this quietness

I have found

 my

strength.

I

have found

my

voice.

My life is a prayer.

I am at Peace.

This

is

Grace

In Truth

 Praying without Ceasing.

This
is
Grace

Take these thoughts into meditation.
Allow this message  to  unfold.

In Practice 

Do you see how it is possible to pray without ceasing?

Do you see that you do not have to give up your career to do so?

Is  this  awareness of prayer parallel to yours ?

If not, what  differs?

Does this difference  encourage your soul?

Dig Deeper

What do you expect from prayer?

Is God there for your purpose?  To give you what you want?

Is it necessary to tell God what you need?

Isn’t this the God  who created you? The One who holds the master plan?

Deeper Still

Is it necessary to beseech God’s  good fortune?

How does God decide who to give good fortune to?

Can you pray for your purpose only?

Aren’t we all One with God?

How can God answer my prayer from my perspective and not your prayer from your perspective?

Is this favoritism?

How does God’s favoritism work?

So many thoughts to consider, Souljourner.  But thoughts that need to be considered. 

Thoughts that bring God’s reality into our lives as never before.What do you accept about prayer.

How is that belief adding to your life of Grace?

Is there duality in your beliefs?

If so,  then you cannot be experiencing Grace.

Awareness of these beliefs regarding Prayer are necessary to your unfoldment.

You need to spend time here.

My Story

I love my story about prayer.

My son was graduating with his MBA from Georgetown;  searching for his dream position.

What was the appropriate prayer for him?

Hadn’t I taught him that God has a master plan for each one of us?

Hadn’t I taught him  to trust, to be led, to listen to his inner guidance?

Hadn’t I taught him that the miraculous unfolds when we let go of our ego and rely upon the spiritual?

Hadn’t I taught him the Truth?

So, what would my prayer sound like? Look like?

God please help Michael land his dream  job?

If I asked that:

It would  sound & look like I had absolutely no faith in  what I said  I believed.

It would sound &  look like I was begging God,

beseeching God,

to do my bidding for my son alone.

Forget all those other grads out there.

Let them fend for themselves.

I’ll look out for mine, you look out for yours.

This just didn’t seem right.

Wasn’t this duality looking me in the eye?

Wasn’t this lack?

Wasn’t this God & something other than this?

I could not pray like this.

In my heart, I knew that God is not a respecter of persons.

God is God.

God is One with each One.

Matters not the One.

Knowing that God is God and in each one, then each One is provided for.

Period.

Yes!

Each One.

Each one of Michael’s fellow classmates were being guided governed & guarded by the One!

Each one of Michael’s fellow classmates had their divine life plan unfolding

without my effort.

Without my beseeching.

Without my plea.

FOR  GOD ALONE IS SUFFICIENCY.

THIS ALONE IS PRAYER.

KNOWING

that
GOD
IS

OMNIPRESENT
OMNIPOTENT
OMNISCIENT

IS

the

ONLY
PRAYER
THERE
IS
.

I invite you to consider this.  To look deeply into this.  These are life altering thoughts.

These are thoughts that transform your life into the acceptance of a  life of grace.

Godspeed

Thank you, O’ Holy One,

for the Infinite One that you are.

For this awareness that you love me just like you love another.

I can not do anything to change this.

I cannot bid you, beg you, beseech you.

All I can do is recognize your Truth.

Recognize my Oneness with the One Power, the One  Presence, the One Intelligence that you alone are.

It is in this Oneness.

In this praying without ceasing,

that all is  known.

It is in this Oneness.

In this praying without ceasing,

that

the life harmonious unfolds.

This is Grace.

This is so.

I am grateful.

&

so

it

is

.
