i recognize the power of prayer
Prayer changes my life by changing me. It places me on a different ground of being withing myself. It gives me confidence in a power that is in me but not of me, that can do for me what I cannot do for myself. It keeps me from sinking into victim consciousness - a stance that attracts more victimization - and lifts me to positivity, that I might attract more positive outcomes.
I commit to prayer this day as my primary problem-solving method, placing my thoughts about all things in the hands of God. I surrender my mental filter in favor of God's, asking only to see through the eyes of love.
I pray for happiness for myself and others. I pray to be an instrument of peace. I pray for a greater capacity to forgive. I pray for the well-being of all. I pray that love prevails. Amen.
