What have you prayed for lately? Are you perhaps praying for the New Year 2022 to have the qualities you want? Many people think prayer is asking God/Heaven/Spirit/Jesus/Buddha/Allah/Krishna for something. Or pleading, if the need is great. But there are a few forms of prayer, and you can choose. It’s your prayer.
Consider a prayer in which you celebrate your Good, celebrate all that is busy manifesting in your life. New Thought churches say, if you don’t like what’s happening in your life, choose a new thought. Many people are affirming their issues, not living in ways such that they are open to their Good. Thought attracts, but not just psychologically. Your Good is coming in all the time. You need to notice and welcome it and say, “Thank You!” to the Divine.
The Divine is always smarter, knows more, sees more, knows what has been, and knows what is to come. God knows the desires of your heart! How could God not know?
Years ago, I worked with a Greek engineer, whose faith was that of the Greek Orthodox Church. Speaking about prayer one day, he asked me, “but doesn’t any prayer indicate uncertainty?” I was rocked! He was saying, since there is nothing hidden from God, and since God loves us, how would we not believe that God was/is taking care of things?
In fact, Romans 8:28 (KJV) offers this:
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
So God is looking out for us. And who, with what smarts and skills, would you rather have looking out for you?
So, what if you do pray, that is, ask God to direct His particular attention to your finances, or your cancer, or your brother’s marriage-on-the-rocks, or your Mom’s malfunctioning knee? He already knows about it. So go ahead, pray, and KNOW that God knows, God loves you, and God is taking care of it, usually in ways beyond our imagining. Print this, from Mark 11:24, for your bathroom mirror, and ponder it often:
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
So if you want to have faith in your faith, ponder this astonishing thunderclap advice: God loves you, God is for you and God is taking care of things. Believe it to be true. The answers to your prayers are busy manifesting. Believe that to be true. Repeat. Amen. And the more deeply you take in these principles, the more joyfully you will be in Upbeat Spiritual Living!sm
And that would be you, increasingly Healthy Happy and Loving Lifesm!
