PRAYER and THE GOD WITHIN
J.S. Aremu-Cole Ph.D.
If we have the same faith in spiritual laws that we have in physical ones, our faith would be complete and miracles will happen every day. As we turn to the God within us (Emmanuel) and realize the power that is working in us, we can make our faith pronouncements without force or effort, knowing that something greater than ourselves act upon our prayers.
Prayer should be spoken in faith, and then released to the Power of the Law. It is foolishness to think that by our own will and through our power of concentration our thought must go somewhere in the invisible and compel things to happen either for us or against some nebulous ‘enemies’. This error is why we strain ourselves so much in prayer.
Without effort or strain, and in a relaxed receptivity, let us know that the Law of Mind acts upon the words we speak during our prayers. Not asking how or why, but simple acceptance and complete belief; let us permit this good to be established in our experience.
Knowing that the Divine Presence has given me of His nature, I accept that everything good is right here with me and active in all of my affairs. I know that I will be guided in everything I think, say and do. I know that peace, joy and happiness will flow from me to everyone I meet today. So help me God. Amen.
Be still and know I am God. Psalm 46:10
