Prayer is a form of meditation upon the power and presence of God in our world. When we pray, we are entering into a sacred union with God.
Prayer isnít about making deals with God. Instead, we recognize that in the great, abundant world of God, we as his creations can
access this creative power at any time. We become truly like God when we create in his image. We come to him, pure of heart, and allow this great light to work
through us, creating tremendous possibilities in our lives.
In this moment, peace, hope, abundance, compassion, grace and service exist within you. When we use the power of prayer to focus our intention and
attention on these spiritual states of being, we tap into the same creative power God used to create the universe. We bring into form the very thing that we desire when we focus on
letting this spiritual power flow through us.
To prepare for prayer, breathe deeply and let the cares of the day slip away. Now visualize in your mind your own personal image of peace, hope,
abundance, compassion, grace or service. You may see a beautiful field of flowers, a waterfall or the sun. Let your own image evoke a great feeling of this spiritual state within
you. Feel this state wash over you and become you. Become your image. See the image move through your body and know what it feels like to be this image of peace, hope, abundance,
compassion, grace or service.
Now you are ready to experience prayers in five spiritual discovery areas: inner journey, spiritual faith, forgiveness, Christian spirituality, and
