believe that Love is at the center of everything; therefore, I
accept Love as the healing power of life. I permit Love to reach out
from me to every person I meet. I believe that Love is returned to
me from every person I meet. I trust the guidance of Love because I
believe it is the power of Good in the universe. I feel that Love is
flowing through me to heal every situation I meet, to help every
person I contact. Love opens the way before me and makes it perfect,
straight, and glad. Love forgives everything unlike itself; it
purifies everything. Love converts everything that seems commonplace
into that which is wonderful. Love converts weakness into strength,
fear into faith.” Although
words were written by the American Mystic Ernest Holmes, they also
represent my thoughts and belief as well. However, I would
like to expand on one statement: "I permit Love to reach
out from me to every person I meet." I would state this
as true for every person I take into my mind; people who have
touched me with their presence, that is, all those who are present
in my thoughts. This is why prayer in absentia is so
powerful. It is not the number of prayers that go through our
mind that matters. It is the substance of the prayers that
move the Spirit.
I remember early in my exposure to metaphysical teachings someone
stated, "we don't hope, we know." Yet, this is all
well and good but it is dependent on how we define "hope"
in our mind. To me, to hope, is to expect and to expect we
must have faith. I believe we don't get what we want, we get
what we "expect." And I believe this is what the
ancient wisdom is directing us to know. Faith is the healer of
doubt, worry, fear and confusion. With faith we can
expect. With faith we do have hope. With faith we are
filled with the love that comes to us from the Spirit that is Love
personified. This is why Mary Baker Eddy could tell us with
all certainty that "Divine Love
always has met and always will meet every human need."
And what are our human needs but our every good desire. It is
our good desire that our prayers for everyone, including ourselves,
shall meet with the good result that we desire.
hear the call for prayer for those who are in the path of
hurricanes, tornados or the aftermath of an earthquake, do not be
intimidated by the power of the situation, but let our faith
generate the hopeful expectation that Love will do Its perfect work
through our thoughtful prayer. It may be amazing how things
work out in our own life for the good as we take into our mind
prayers for others.
From the masterful Dr. Norman Vincent Peale: "The
more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more
energy (power) you will have."
And so it is!
