Prayer for Saturday

Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death.
~ Author Unknown

My knowledge that the great “I Am” is ever available gives me an increasing capacity to draw upon it and to become inwardly aware of the presence of Spirit.

Through the quiet contemplation of the omni-action of Spirit, I learn to look quietly and calmly upon every false condition, seeing through it to the other side of the invisible reality which molds conditions and recreates all of my affairs after a more nearly divine pattern.

With a penetrating spiritual vision I can dissipate the obstruction, remove the obstacle, and dissolve the wrong condition. Standing still, I can watch the sure salvation of the Law. I now claim health instead of sickness, wealth instead of poverty, happiness instead of misery.

Every thought of fear or limitation is removed from my consciousness. I know that my word transmutes every energy into constructive action, producing health, harmony, happiness, and success. I know there is something at the center of my being which is absolutely certain of itself. It has complete assurance that all is well. I maintain my position as a divine being here and now.

I know that in this consciousness of reality is the supply for my every need – physical, mental, or spiritual – and I accept that supply in deepest gratitude. I am thankful that this is the way Life fulfills my needs, through the doorway of my inner self, and I am thankful that I know how to use this perfect Law.

I come to this great Fountain of Supply, in the very center of my being, to absorb that for which I have need, mentally and physically, and I am filled with the sense of the reality of that which I desire. As I am filled with reality, I permit it to flow into my world of thought and action, knowing that it brings peace, harmony, and order all around me. There arises within me limitless faith in the unconquerable Presence, the perfect Law, and Divine Action. And so it is.

Prayer for Friday (Sts. Peter and Paul)

Faith is the substance of things hoped for;
the evidence of things not seen.

I kneel before the Father, from Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that He may grant you in accord with the riches of His glory to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner self, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Faith can move mountains,
but don’t be surprised if God hands you a shovel.
~ Author Unknown

Gracious Lord God,
you have laid claim to us and have set us apart as your own.
Help us not to think too highly of ourselves,
or to seek glory by personal merit.
Rather, help us to rest our faith and hope in you alone.
In all things, let us remain strong in faith,
and lead us by your Spirit, at work in your Word.
In Your name we pray. Amen

Faith makes things possible,
not easy.

Almighty God, every good thing comes from you.
Fill our hearts with love for you, increase our faith,
and by your constant care, protect the good you have given us.

O Lord, you conquer the darkness of ignorance by the light of your Word.
Strengthen within our hearts the faith you have given us;
let not temptation ever quench the fire that your love has kindled within us.

Merciful God, send the power of your Holy Spirit upon us
that we may remain faithful and do your will in our daily lives.
Amen.

Prayer for Sunday

Faith is putting all your eggs in God’s basket,
then counting your blessings before they hatch.
~ Ramona C. Carroll

God is my help in every need;
God does my every hunger feed;
God walks beside me, guides my way
Through every moment of this day.

I now am wise, I now am true,
Patient and kind, and loving, too;
All things I am, can do, and be,
Through Christ the Truth, that is in me.

God is my health, I can’t be sick;
God is my strength, unfailing, quick;
God is my all, I know no fear,
Since God and Love and Truth are here.

(Hannah More Kohaus, from Unity Worldwide Missions)
