Simple and Direct

Share it Please

I will give thanks to my Inner life for all It’s marvelous wonders, and for all its wonderful works.
SOM pp. 526

Prayer is friendship with God. Friendship is not merely generalized in mood: every event is its occasion.
George Arthur Buttrick

“Prayer is to be simple, direct and receiving”. Prayer is to consciously enter into communion with the Divine in an inner language which is sincere, to the point and completely devoid of any desire to persuade, impress or control.

Spirit within knows us completely. Spirit within is unmoved by beautiful words which do not carry the weight of our conviction. Spirit within responds immediately when the words of our mouth reflect the truth of our being.

Why would we expect our prayers to bring forth joy, unless we entered into prayer with joy. Why would we expect our prayers to bring forth harmony, peace and power, unless we entered into prayer with harmony, peace and power.

At the center of successful prayer is a quiet sense of gratitude for the magnificence of life. Try it for one day. Simply say an inner thank you to everything and everyone. Let this be your prayer for just one day.

Today I let my thoughts be simple, direct and receiving. I express my relationship to Life in my innermost thought and I allow myself to remain open throughout this day to Spirit’s loving embrace. I affirm frequently that Spirit within me knows the way. I give thanks for my life and all that is in it.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
