Let’s begin today by resting in the silence of prayer as we focus right now on this scripture.
Romans 10:1 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved.
Several times during the year, I like to focus on prayer. So today (and every day, I hope) we are going to pray to God in areas focused on building that relationship we have with Him because we know that God is our help in every need.
As you focus on the items below (and above), make them part of your personal prayer this day. When it states to “rest in the silence of prayer” do so, before moving on to the next paragraph.
2 Chronicles 6:40 Now, my God, may your eyes be open and your ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place..
We know that God is here. We know from the core of our being that God is with us. Through God, and only through God, can we overcome any obstacle to our peace of mind. We can overcome any limitation. We can live in freedom and joy in the bosom of the Lord.
Through the activity of God, we can feel a comfort and a tranquility that passes human understanding. “You will know the Truth,” Jesus promised, “And the Truth will set you free.”
Can we as disciples (students) of the Word, live as they did 2,000 years ago?
Acts 2:42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer….
Acts 6:4 and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.
Now it is time to let go of our lists of human weaknesses and limitations. God frees us now to live a fuller, happier, more useful and more satisfying life.
Now it is time to let go of your human sense of trouble and difficulties. Let go of everything that is not part of the consciousness of Christ. Center your full attention, your whole being, on God’s spiritual help with you and all around you.
Give God your full attention in this moment. See the result. Get your personal self out of the way so that the Divine may emerge.
Psalm 66:20 Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!.
Now take the time you need resting in the silence of prayer focusing on God’s Divine presence.
In doing this prayer your awareness is filled with a harmonizing calm, a complete confidence that is blessed and radiates from the close Presence and the quiet, steady purposeful activity of God.
God is with you, right now, so you can give the Almighty Presence your full human attention going straight to God every day, by abiding in God every moment and by consciously letting God create in you – harmony and wholeness, vitality, power and plenty; God becomes that to you AND MORE.
Rest in the silence of prayer.
When you consciously let God live in you, and through you, and all around you, you will be aided, strengthened, and guided in ways that you have not yet dreamed of in the human mind. You become thoroughly aware of the Presence of the ever-active Presence, and you feel it spiritually at all times.
Psalm 17:6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
Again, take a moment in the silence of prayer. .
You know that every battle in life, and every victory, is not yours, not the troops’, but it is the Lord’s. We pray for Divine help and order in every difficultly.
We consciously place ourselves right in the midst of God and right in the path of God’s action of love. We know that we are a catalyst to express more and more of God life and harmony and unlimited goodness and power.
So take this moment of silence to feel God. We know that God is here in our lives now. You can feel His presence.
Psalm 54:2 Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.
Rest in the silence of prayer.
There is nothing mysterious about the Presence of God that we are feeling. This is as natural as anything can get. God is here. God’s Presence is here. It is a normal occurrence, every minute of our lives, if we are willing to become aware of His Presence.
Acts 1:14 They all joined together constantly in prayer, ….
There is power in God. We immerse ourselves in that power steadfastly acknowledging God’s power continuously in our thinking. We give God all the credit and glory for everything we gain and accomplish. We keep our minds upon God’s Omnipresence as we go about our daily tasks and as we undertake new ventures. We submit to God’s wisdom.
God goes with us everywhere. There is no place where God is not. God is our guide. God sustains us in all of our thoughts, actions and emotions.
There are times when we are gripped with uncertainty or fear, but when we keep our minds on the constant Presence we courageously proceed with whatever is needed for us to do. God is here.
The power of God is in our awareness. It is in every cell of our body and in every area of our outer life. We keep our minds and hearts on the power of God. Gradually, positively, this power will take possession of our consciousness.
Our whole consciousness will become God-conscious; consciousness that is filled with God’s vitality, God’s peace, God’s overcoming calm. The Divine Presence and power will become alive in us. Divine action will solve, harmonize and eliminate all problems in our lives and ills in our physical bodies.
Our human sense of trouble will disappear. It is disappearing right now in this prayer time. And then, under the law of Divine actions, the troubles themselves will disappear. It is God who will do the work, not us. We merely consent as we are consenting now to be immersed in His Presence.
God is working inside of you now. . So rest in the silence of prayer. . .
You have brought your problems, concerns and cares to God. Consent to God and God will take care of them. Consent to God now. Let go, and let God.
Consent to the Power of God, and God’s work happening inside of your life, through you, into every aspect of living and into the life of our earth. Consent to the perfection of God and that perfection will be made manifest in your life.
God is with you. God is around you. God is everywhere present. Give the Almighty Presence a chance by going straight to God this moment and every moment.
Father, we pray constantly, realizing that as we let go and let You, God, that there will be a higher path that we will be walking on, a higher path not weighted down by our human cares and concerns. We realize that you will bring ultimate good to every situation.
Blessed by our thoughts, we consciously go forward to do Your works with our actions in our world.
And we pray this to You, Lord, as we rest once again in the silence of prayer. . .
God is with you. God is our help in every need. Through God, we overcome any limitation. We live in freedom and we live in the ability to master all that comes our way, as long as we have faith and always depend on the Presence of God.
I pray that the Divine Presence and power has come alive inside of you. I pray that that His Presence and Power increases in your awareness as this day goes forward and in to the future.
Nothing outside of you can disturb you; nothing can upset the calm peace of your soul.
You are dwelling in the calm peace of God.
1 Samuel 2:1 Then Hannah prayed and said: “My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance.”
In the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, we say, thank you, God. Amen
