Prayer for Saturday

Not what we have but what we enjoy,
constitutes our abundance.
~ Epicurus

Dear God,
Without realizing it, I must have taken on a belief system that includes thoughts about lack, scarcity, suffering, sacrifice and deprivation. I recognize this because I see the tangible evidence of this around me and in the lives of others. I accept that what I see is only what my mind accepts as reality. I have no interest in this belief system as it blocks my awareness of You and delays my experience of the joyful abundance that is Your will for me. Please heal my mind of every thought I have that is contributing to my delay of prosperity and abundance.
I accept Your love for me on every level. As a Child of God, I am worthy of Your gifts, blessings and resources. In gratitude, I claim my Divine inheritance. I am relieved as I remember it is not up to me to provide the resources that naturally come from You, the Giver of everything. Thy will be done. Amen

(from Miracles in Prayer by Robin Duncan)

Prayer for Friday

The world is full of abundance and opportunity,
but far too many people come to the fountain of life with a sieve instead of a tank car… a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel.
They expect little and as a result they get little.
~ Ben Sweetland

Before me, is proof of Earth’s abundance,
before me, is proof that I am most fortunate,
before me, is a meal, many millions can only dream of,
with hunger in their bellies that I am blessed not to feel.

May I savor each bite that nourishes me.
May I never take this ample bounty for granted.
May I use this fuel given to my body, wisely and well,
and never squander my blessed life on petty things.

Before me, is the proof of Earth’s abundance,
May I never fail to remember how truly blessed I am.

The measure of your life will not be in what you accumulate,
but in what you give away.
~ Wayne Dyer

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

(Muslim Dua for Prosperity)

And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them. I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me. So let them respond to My call and believe in Me. (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!
~ Qur’an, Surah Baqarah 2:186

If you look at what you have in life,
you’ll always have more.
If you look at what you don’t have in life,
you’ll never have enough.
~ Oprah Winfrey

From The Light of God that I Am.
From The Love of God that I Am.
From The Power of God that I Am.
From The Heart of God that I Am.

I Decree-

I dwell in the midst of Infinite Abundance. The Abundance of God is my Infinite Source.

The River of Life never stops flowing. It flows through me into lavish expression. Good comes to me through unexpected avenues and God works in a myriad of ways to bless me.

I now open my mind to receive my good. Nothing is too good to be true. Nothing is too wonderful to have happen. With God as my Source, Nothing amazes me.

I am not burdened by thoughts of past or future. One is gone. The other is yet to come.

By the power of my belief, coupled with my purposeful fearless actions and my deep rapport with God, my future is created and my abundance made manifest.

I ask and accept that I am lifted in this and every moment into Higher Truth. My mind is quiet.

From this day forward I give freely and fearlessly into life and Life gives back to me with magnificent increase. Blessings come in expected and unexpected ways. God provides for me in wondrous ways.

I AM indeed grateful. And I let it be so.

Thank You, God, for Your loving spirit within me
that prospers and blesses my life.

You are my source, dear God, and in Your presence every need is met.
Thank You for Your overflowing goodness

God, Your love fills my heart and attracts to me all good things.
Through Your unlimited substance, I live a life of plenty.

Being broke is a temporary situation.
Being poor is a state of mind.
~ Mike Todd

O God! O God! This is a broken-winged bird and his flight is very slow—assist him so that he may fly toward the apex of prosperity and salvation, wing his way with the utmost joy and happiness throughout the illimitable space, raise his melody in Thy Supreme Name in all the regions, exhilarate the ears with this call, and brighten the eyes by beholding the signs of guidance.

O Lord! I am single, alone and lowly. For me there is no support save Thee, no helper except Thee and no sustainer beside Thee. Confirm me in Thy service, assist me with the cohorts of Thy angels, make me victorious in the promotion of Thy Word and suffer me to speak out Thy wisdom amongst Thy creatures. Verily, Thou art the helper of the weak and the defender of the little ones, and verily Thou art the Powerful, the Mighty and the Unconstrained.

(‘Abdu’l-Bahá)

Expect your every need to be met.
Expect the answer to every problem.
Expect abundance on every level.
Expect to grow spiritually.
~ Eileen Caddy, co-founder of Findhorn

I give thanks to God for this day, in which
My dream will flourish, my plans will succeed,
My destiny will be assured, and the desire of my heart
Will be granted in Jesus’ name.
The money I need will know my name and address
Before the end of this month.
As I awake this morning, may my life be clean,
Calm and clear as the early morning dew.
May the grace of the Almighty support, sustain and
Supply all my needs according to His riches in glory.
Amen!
