A positive path for spiritual living

Affirmative Prayer

Affirmative Prayer reflects the certainty that we are each being led to our highest good, despite any temporary appearances. By using an affirmative prayer approach, we can visualize and plan for the future with faith that the power of God is continually blessing our lives with unlimited possibilities. Affirmative prayer leads to an awakening of our spiritual selves. In faith, we pray giving thanks in advance that the Universe is meeting our every need.

The Lord’s Prayer Interpretation by Eric Butterworth

Our Father who art in heaven:

I am now conscious of the infinite and eternal Presence in whom I live and by which I think and create.

Hallowed be Thy name:

This Presence in me is whole and complete. It is the activity of health that heals, of intelligence that inspires, of substance that prospers, and of love that harmonizes.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven:

I am God’s glorious possibility. I now let His perfect idea of me unfold in me and through me. My desire for betterment is God’s desire to perfect that which He is expressing as me, and I let Him have His way. I see myself doing that which He sees me being.

Give us this day our daily bread:

I have no existence outside of God’s Presence, for I am that Presence expressing as me. Therefore, I can never be separated from the all-sufficient substance of the opulant Universe. I claim my divine inheritance and I daily, perpetually, manifest abundant supply.

Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors: The Presence in me is my potential for dissolving all conflicts or transgression. The Presence is Love, and it loves in me and through me as I forgive. It releases me as I loose and let go of all my limited thoughts about myself or others.

Leave us not in temptation but deliver us from evil:

The Presence in me is my light and my deliverance. There is no darkness in the light, and there can be no darkness in me when I am established in spiritual unity with the Presence within me – which is “better than light and safer than a known way.”

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever, Amen:

In all that I seek to be or do or have, I humbly realize that in the Presence is my power to think, my very thought of aspiration, my will to commence, my strength to keep on, my power to achieve, and the glory of all my accomplishments. This is the Truth, and it is now done.

The Abundance Prayer
From The Light of Universe that I Am. From The Love of Universe that I Am.
From The Power of Universe that I Am. From The Heart of Universe that I Am.

I Decree -

I dwell in the midst of Infinite Abundance. The Abundance of Universe is my Infinite Source.

The River of Life never stops flowing. It flows through me into lavish expression. Good comes to me through unexpected
avenues and the Universe works in a myriad of ways to bless me.

I now open my mind to receive my good. Nothing is too good to be true. Nothing is too wonderful to have happen. With
the Universe as my Source, Nothing amazes me.

I am not burdened by thoughts of past or future. One is gone. The other is yet to come.

By the power of my belief, coupled with my purposeful fearless actions and my deep rapport with the Universe,
my future is created and my abundance made manifest.

I ask and accept that I am lifted in this and every moment into Higher Truth. My mind is quiet.

From this day forward I give freely and fearlessly into life and Life gives back to me with magnificent increase.
Blessings come in expected and unexpected ways. The Universe provides for me in wondrous ways.

I AM indeed grateful. And I let it be so.

“Be still and know that I am God.” Use this prayer to draw yourself and others into a contemplative frame of mind.

Find a quiet place, gently close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Prepare to pray the Psalm in 5 consecutively diminishing sentences.

Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know that I am.
Be still and know.
Be still.
Be.

Fr. Richard Rohr's prayer comes from Psalm 46:10 of the Hebrew Scriptures
