Affirmative Prayer is a conscious activity of mind and heart, acknowledging and knowing that there is one God, Great Power, Spirit, Infinite Intelligence in this Universe which is unlimited in potential and possibility, and IT is always available to us. There is NO place where God is not. We are co-creators with this Power and can use it to create and bring about desired results.
Affirmative Prayer is a process which helps us to dispel and release our doubts and fears and to open up and allow, that which we are desiring to experience to manifest.
When we employ Affirmative Prayer we align our thoughts with, and open our minds and hearts to, an awareness of this Great Power. We trust and know that God is listening and that with God all things are possible.
This Great Power, God, Universal Mind, Infinite Intelligence responds to our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings according to Universal Law. It is always saying Yes to us.
Affirmative Prayer is used and taught in some “New Age/Thought” organizations including United Centers for Spiritual Living, also known as Science of Mind or Religious Science. Individuals who have undergone years of specialized training in this philosophy, especially in this type of Affirmative Prayer, or Treatment, and passed written and oral examinations, become Practitioners of Religious Science and use the designation, RScP, following their name. Many of our community members have completed this training and are licensed Practitioners.
Establish clearly in your mind what it is that you are desiring to manifest in your life or in someone else’s life. Some examples include: peace of mind, love, self-acceptance, the solution to an issue, prosperity, greater financial resources, health, well-being, joy, happiness, a new job or home.
Breathe deeply and still your mind. Focus on your breathing and your heart center. Feel the peace and love that is there. Feel the indwelling Presence of God.
Reflect on the nature, qualities, and characteristics of God. Recall the attributes of God, especially those that relate to what you are asking to bring into your life experience, or the experience of someone else. It may be helpful to remember the infinite nature of this loving, creative, intelligent, all knowing Power and the perfection of God. Remember that God is the only Creative Presence and that all is possible with and through God. Feel the presence of God and all that God is, around and within you. Feel the peace and love of God.
Remind yourself that you are inseparable from God, that the Spirit of God is alive in you and everyone and everything. There is a Unity of all Life, a Unity with God. You are intimately and infinitely one with God, and because of this you have access to all the attributes, characteristics and qualities of God. They are part of you. Your Spiritual self is perfect, whole and complete. It is the truth of who you are. You have, through God - Spirit within you, everything that you could ever dream or wish for, because it already exists in God.
Speak your words (in the present tense), knowing that anything and everything that you desire already exists in God and it is yours when you claim it as yours and are a vibrational match to your desire. Know that the activity of God is already working to bring into manifestation that which you have asked for, according to your beliefs and vibration.
Embrace the feelings of having or experiencing that which you have declared. Experience those feelings to the greatest extent possible. Feel the joy, release of stress, happiness, vitality, prosperity, well-being, love, creativity, etc. Celebrate the feeling. The stronger the feelings, the more potent the vibration and the more successful the prayer. Know that your thoughts and feelings are creating a vibration of attraction.
Speak and know the truth that God’s presence is right here, right now, in this moment, in every moment in its maximum potential. Know that as God is working through you, as you, and for you, all things are possible. Acknowledge that your intuition, a deep knowingness, peacefulness and sense of well-being are indications of your alignment with God’s presence within you.
Thank God for the blessings and express gratitude for that which God is already bringing into your life. Feel the appreciation of receiving what you have asked for. Thank God for your understanding of the infinite, power and presence of God.
Let go and let God manifest your desires. Release your words, knowing that God is taking care of your desires. God is orchestrating and organizing life and will bring into your reality that which you have set into motion by your thoughts and feelings; the vibration you have created. Let it go, release and let God do what God does, and remember that sometimes the answers to our prayers appear differently than we had originally envisioned.
