|"A Course in Miracles"
talks about Miracles being "the removal of the denial of Truth".
This notion is diametrically opposed to the popular notion in main stream
religions. It seems that the main stream wants everyone to "become" more heavenly. We subscribe to the notion
that we already are everything that we need to be.
It is only when we stop striving, stop trying to become something else, that we can settle into acceptance of the Truth of our Divinity. And in that settling we find direct experience that God is Good .... All the time; life is a smorgasbord and you get to experience that which is in your highest and best good; the past does not have to equal the future; Spiritual Law is not bound by the laws of man; and human suffering is optional.
So ... if we were to think of these things with an open mind .....if we were to say yes to inviting heavenly experiences into our lives, what would we be willing to do to prove that our desire to open to a conscious contact with God takes priority over any of our current activities?
Would you be willing to take the time to commit the following prayer to memory?
Would you be willing to say the following prayer - out loud and with as much passion and conviction as possible -- everyday for the next 30 days ... instead of 10 minutes of tv? ...... instead of being angry at your neighbour, your fellow motorist, or a friend who did you wrong?
Try it. Try it for the next 30 days. Then monitor how you feel; how you react to your life situations; how others react to you. Monitor how you feel and see for yourself how you life has changed for you and how you feel about those changes.
Please note that you do not have to change your current beliefs in blind faith for you can go straight to the Knowing and then experience, directly, the Truth of who you are and what you can do as you surrender to, and partnership with, your Almighty Creator. You merely need to do the simple work and want, sincerely, the resultant Joy, the Abundance, and the Peace that passeth understanding. You need to want it enough to give it priority and then do it.
Try it. What do you have to lose?

Speak this aloud, in prayer:
I believe in miracles because I believe in God. God, You are a wonder-working God. Night and day, You are working behind the scenes to bring about the most wondrous perfect result. I give thanks that I am a part of your plan of miracles. I pray for a miracle, but more importantly, because of my belief in You that never waivers, I expect a miracle.
I give You my life for you to transform it and lengthen it with Your miracle-working power. Dear God, I give You my body, from the top of my head, to the bottom of my feet, I pray that You will bring Your miracle working power to every cell and atom, every tissue and every fiber. I give You my heart, my lungs, my kidneys, my liver, my stomach, and all the organs of my body for You to perfect with the miracle working power of Your perfect regeneration. I give You my skeletal system for You to strengthen and empower.
I give You my mind for You to transform every thought into a thought that is founded in doubtless faith and grounded in bottomless strength. I give You my eyes so that you can transform them from seeing negative energy-zapping events to witnessing the wonder and majesty of all life. I give You my emotions so that they will no longer be cynical or critical; down or lowly about myself and others. Uplift my emotions with Your miracle-working power.
I give You my energy so that You can add to it with miracle-working power so that I sizzle with energy, zeal and enthusiasm. I give You all my relationships for You to transform with a miracle of pure love. I pray that those relationships that are old and worn out are renewed and sustained with Your life-giving power of miracle love.
Dear God, I give You my career and I ask that You touch it and bring to it continuous miracles. God, I give You my hopes and dreams, my goals and ambitions, I ask You to bring miracles asked for and dreamed for along with the serendipity of the unexpected miracles that will make my life surprising and sweet.
Dear God, I give You my hands. Use them, so that they can produce miracles in other's lives. Dear God, I give You my feet. Use them to walk towards my miracles or to aid in producing miracles for others.
I expect a miracle and I accept a miracle!
In Christ's name....Amen
