Prayer For A More Spiritual Life

How Is Prayer Our Spiritual Breathing?

Prayer For A More Spiritual Life

When we heard the gospel and believed, we prayed to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and life. Afterwards, we probably continued to pray, asking God to help us in times of trouble, praying to Him on behalf of others, or asking Him for things we needed or wanted.

All of these are different ways we can pray to the Lord. But what is prayer? And how do we pray according to the Bible?

What does it mean to pray?

We pray to know the Lord Jesus, to develop our personal relationship with Him, and to speak to Him about our troubles, needs, and burdens. God is gracious and answers our prayers.

But just as breathing air is the most fundamental need for our physical life, receiving more of the divine life continually is the most crucial need for our spiritual life.

Prayer is the means by which we can obtain that life.

Simply put, prayer is our spiritual breathing.

Let’s first look at this verse:

“The last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.”—1 Corinthians 15:45

What the Lord wants to give us, and our greatest need day by day, even hour by hour, is His life. The Greek word for “Spirit” is pneuma. This same Greek word is used for “breath.” The Lord went through death, and now in resurrection He is the life-giving Spirit, or “breath.”

If prayer is our spiritual breathing, how do we inhale this life-giving breath? How do we receive this life-giving Spirit?

How do we pray?

When we want to do something, we use the right “organ.” We wouldn’t try to use our ears to eat or our nose to hear. We know our mouth is the right organ for eating and our ears are the right organs for hearing.

In order to pray, we need to use the right organ, which is our human spirit. Our soul, with its many thoughts and feelings, is not the right organ to pray to receive the life-giving Spirit. We’ve all experienced how our thoughts can take us around the world and back, instead of to the Lord. Our spirit, however, always takes us to the Lord.

Take a look at this verse:

“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truthfulness.”—John 4:24

The verse says we must worship, or contact, God who is Spirit with our human spirit. Our human spirit is our deepest part. As we contact the Spirit with our spirit in prayer, we “breathe” Him in and receive Him as the divine life, breath. He is our spiritual oxygen.

It takes practice, but we must learn to exercise our spirit as our proper praying organ. We’re used to exercising our mind, the major part of our soul. Because of this, our mind can be very strong and our spirit not so strong. To quiet the thoughts in our mind and to focus on exercising our spirit, it helps to open our mouth and audibly pray to the Lord.

Why do we need to pray?

Besides sustaining our spiritual life, prayer is the means for us to gain God.

The more we pray, the more we take in the spiritual breath and the more we are strengthened spiritually. We receive Him, the source of life, and “inhale” His Spirit as the spiritual breath for us to grow in His life.

Prayer is also a way for God to gain more of us.

As we open to Him in prayer, giving Him the big things, the little things, and the in-between things of our lives, talking with Him and spending time in His presence, we allow God to make His home more in our hearts, little by little. As He makes His home in our hearts, our inward being will begin to match Him. Our thoughts, our feelings, our decisions, will be gradually filled with God.

What do we pray about?

When we pray, we simply need to be genuine with the Lord and contact Him with our deepest part, our spirit. It can be as simple as having an honest conversation with Him about our day, or about a situation we’re in.

We can contact the Lord who lives inside us at any time, in any place, and about anything that’s on our hearts.

This kind of genuine prayer will allow Him the room to work in us, and will give us the sense that we’ve taken a healthy, spiritual breath.

Additionally, when we’re spending time with the Lord in prayer, speaking to Him, listening for Him, and enjoying His presence, sometimes we’ll have a sense in our spirit that we should pray for something specific. The Lord may remind us of a friend He wants us to pray for, or a sin He wants us to confess to Him. We can then pray that back to the Lord according to the sense in our spirit.

The most important thing

Whether we are praying for a personal need or for the needs of someone else, and regardless of whether the Lord answers those prayers, the most important thing is that we contact the Lord with our spirit in prayer to breathe Him in. Through this kind of contact, our relationship with the Lord is deepened, we receive His life-giving Spirit, and our spiritual life is strengthened.

The Spirit-Filled Life

Prayer For A More Spiritual Life

by Dr. Bill Bright. – The following is taken from a booklet written called ‘How to be Filled with the Holy Spirit’. It explains how Christians can live their Christian lives with fulfillment and not become defeated by sin.

Every day can be an exciting adventure for the Christian who knows the reality of being filled with the Holy Spirit and who lives constantly, moment by moment, under His gracious direction.

1. Natural Man

(one who has not received Christ)

“A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised” (1 Corinthians 2:14).

2. Spiritual Man

(One who is directed and empowered by the Holy Spirit)

“He who is spiritual appraises all things…We have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:15)

3. Carnal Man

(One who has received Christ, but who lives in defeat because he is trying to live the Christian life in his own strength)

“And I brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to carnal men, as to babes in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, for you are still carnal. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshy, and are you not walking mere men?”
(1 Corinthians 3:1-3).

Jesus said,  “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly” (John 10:10).

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

“But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law” (Galatians 5:22, 23).

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

“I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly” (John 10:10).”I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

”But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law” (Galatians 5:22, 23).

”But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

The Spiritual Person

Some spiritual traits which result from trusting God:

TRAITS

The degree to which these traits are manifested in the life depends upon the extent to which the Christian trusts the Lord with every detail of his life, and upon his maturity in Christ.

One who is only beginning to understand the ministry of the Holy Spirit should not be discouraged if he is not as fruitful as more mature Christians who have known and experienced this truth for a longer period.

Why is it that most Christians are not experiencing the abundant life?

The carnal man trusts in his own efforts to live the Christian life:

  1. He is either uninformed about, or has forgotten, God’s love, forgiveness, and power (Romans 5:8-10; Hebrews 10:1-25; 1 John 1; 2:1-3; 2 Peter 1:9; Acts 1:8).
  2. He has an up-and-down spiritual experience.
  3. He cannot understand himself – he wants to do what is right, but cannot.
  4. He fails to draw upon the power of the Holy Spirit to live the Christian life.  (1 Corinthians 3:1-3; Romans 7:15-24; 8:7; Galatians 5:16-18)

The Carnal Person

Some or all of the following traits may characterize the Christian who does not fully trust God:

TRAITS

(The individual who professes to be a Christian but who continues to practice sin should realize that he may not be a Christian at all, according to 1 John 2:3; 3:6, 9; Ephesians 5:5).

The third truth gives us the only solution to this problem…

The Spirit-filled life is the Christ-directed life by which Christ lives His life in and through us in the power of the Holy Spirit (John 15).

  1. One becomes a Christian through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, according to John 3:1-8. From the moment of spiritual birth, the Christian is indwelt by the Holy Spirit at all times (John 1:12; Colossians 2:9, 10; John 14:16, 17).Though all Christians are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, not all Christians are filled (directed and empowered) by the Holy Spirit.
  2. The Holy Spirit is the source of the overflowing life (John 7:37-39).
  3. The Holy Spirit came to glorify Christ (John 16:1-15). When one is filled with the Holy Spirit, he is a true disciple of Christ.
  4. In His last command before His ascension, Christ promised the power of the Holy Spirit to enable us to be witnesses for Him (Acts 1:1-9).

How, then, can one be filled with the Holy Spirit?

You can appropriate the filling of the Holy Spirit right now if you:

  1. Sincerely desire to be directed and empowered by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 5:6; John 7:37-39).
  2. Confess your sins. By faith thank God that He has forgiven all of your sins – past, present and future – because Christ died for you (Colossians 2:13-15; 1 John 1; 2:1-3; Hebrews 10:1-17).
  3. Present every area of your life to God (Romans 12:1, 2).
  4. By faith claim the fullness of the Holy Spirit, according to:
    • His Command: Be filled with the Spirit. “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18).
    • His Promise: He will always answer when we pray according to His will. “And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked of Him” (1 John 5:14, 15).

Faith can be expressed through prayer…

We are filled with the Holy Spirit by faith alone. However, true prayer is one way of expressing your faith. The following is a suggested prayer:

“Dear Father, I need You. I acknowledge that I have been directing my own life and that, as a result, I have sinned against You. I thank You that You have forgiven my sins through Christ’s death on the cross for me.

I now invite Christ to again take His place on the throne of my life. Fill me with the Holy Spirit as You commanded me to be filled, and as You promised in Your Word that You would do if I asked in faith.

I now thank You for directing my life and for filling me with the Holy Spirit.”

Does this prayer express the desire of your heart? If so, ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit right now and trust Him to do so.

How to know that you are filled (directed and empowered) with the Holy Spirit

Did you ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit? Do you know that you are now filled with the Holy Spirit? On what authority? (On the trustworthiness of God Himself and His Word: Hebrews 11:6; Romans 14:22, 23.)

Do not depend upon feelings. The promise of God’s Word, not our feelings, is our authority. The Christian lives by faith (trust) in the trustworthiness of God Himself and His Word. This train diagram illustrates the relationship between fact (God and His Word), faith (our trust in God and His Word), and feeling (the result of our faith and obedience) (John 14:21).

The train will run with or without the caboose. However, it would be futile to attempt to pull the train by the caboose. In the same way, we, as Christians, do not depend upon feelings or emotions, but we place our faith (trust) in the trustworthiness of God and the promises of His Word.

How to Walk in the Spirit

Faith (trust in God and in His promises) is the only means by which a Christian can live the Spirit-directed life. As you continue to trust Christ moment by moment:

  1. Your life will demonstrate more and more of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22, 23) and will be more and more conformed to the image of Christ (Romans 12:2; 2 Corinthians 3:18).
  2. Your prayer life and study of God’s Word will become more meaningful.
  3. You will experience His power in witnessing (Acts 1:8).
  4. You will be prepared for spiritual conflict against the world (1 John 2:15-17); against the flesh (Galatians 5:16-17); and against Satan (1 Peter 5:7-9; Ephesians 6:10-13).
  5. You will experience His power to resist temptation and sin (1 Corinthians 10:13; Philippians 4:13; Ephesians 1:19-23; 2 Timothy 1:7; Romans 6:1-16).

Spiritual Breathing

By faith you can continue to experience God’s love and forgiveness.

If you become aware of an area of your life (an attitude or an action) that is displeasing to the Lord, even though you are walking with Him and sincerely desiring to serve Him, simply thank God that He has forgiven your sins – past, present and future – on the basis of Christ’s death on the cross. Claim His love and forgiveness by faith and continue to have fellowship with Him.

If you retake the throne of your life through sin — a definite act of disobedience — breathe spiritually.

Spiritual breathing (exhaling the impure and inhaling the pure) is an exercise in faith that enables you to continue to experience God’s love and forgiveness.

  1. Exhale — confess your sin — agree with God concerning your sin and thank Him for His forgiveness of it, according to 1 John 1:9 and Hebrews 10:1-25. Confession involves repentance – a change in attitude and action.
  2. Inhale — surrender the control of your life to Christ, and appropriate (receive) the fullness of the Holy Spirit by faith. Trust that He now directs and empowers you; according to the command of Ephesians 5:18, and the promise of 1 John 5:14, 15.

Using Vocal Prayer in Your Spiritual Life

Prayer For A More Spiritual Life

August 29, 2018

Vocal prayer is prayer in word or action. Since man is composed of soul and body, he must not only use his mind in prayer, but also his body and its senses for the glory of God. You express your interior sentiments and reverence for God in articulated words or in bodily posture, such as kneeling, standing, bowing, or folding your hands.

The great value of a vocal prayer always lies in the fact that it is a means by which you lovingly adore God. Each prayer is useful to the degree that it lifts the mind and will to God.

In vocal prayer, we use a prepared form of words, either a standard prayer from a prayer book or a prayer we have made up ourselves, and we recite this prayer, aloud or silently, from the book or from memory.

Invoking the saints aids vocal prayer

The practice of invoking the saints keeps before your mind the consoling doctrine of the Communion of Saints and of the universal motherhood of Mary.

We help one another here on earth by mutual prayer; we pray, too, for our beloved dead and for all the souls in Purgatory; and to the saints in glory we look for assistance, calling on them to intercede for us with God.

In this way, we can keep alive the family spirit that binds together the brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ, under the fatherhood of God and the motherhood of our Blessed Lady.

Devotion to our Lady is a sort of echo of our Lord’s bidding to become little children if we wish to enter the kingdom of Heaven. Our Blessed Mother enters largely — as in a lesser degree the other saints also enter — into the scheme of salvation.

External worship of God

The Church follows the example of our Savior, who prayed orally and taught His disciples to pray in the same way. She attaches great importance to prayer that is offered by the faithful in groups, such as at public services in churches, at Mass, during novenas, and at Benediction.

Public prayer has a special power with God and is very pleasing to Him, for our Lord said, “If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in Heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Jesus is near them with His grace and will support their prayers by His intercession with the Father.

The Liturgy is the corporate prayer of the Church

The Liturgy of the Church is made up of the prayers said during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Divine Office, and the prayers used in the administration of the sacraments and sacramentals.

The Liturgy never represents the prayer of a single individual, praying in his own name for his own purposes, but rather the prayer of the whole Church, praying to God as one body, the Mystical Body of Christ.

Pope Pius XII wrote,

“The Divine Redeemer has so willed it that the priestly life, begun with the supplication and sacrifices of His mortal body, should continue without intermission down the ages in His Mystical Body, which is the Church.

“In obedience. . . to her Founder’s behest, the Church prolongs the priestly mission of Jesus Christ mainly by means of the sacred Liturgy. She does this in the first place at the altar, where constantly the Sacrifice of the Cross is re-presented and, with a single difference in the manner of its offering, renewed.

She does it next by means of the sacraments, whose special channels through which men are made partakers in the supernatural life. She does it finally by offering to God, all good and great, the daily tribute of her prayer of praise.

‘What a spectacle for Heaven and earth,’ observes Our Predecessor of happy memory, Pius XI, ‘is not the Church at prayer! For centuries without interruption, from midnight to midnight, the divine psalmody of the inspired canticles is repeated on earth; there is no hour of the day that is not hallowed by its special Liturgy; there is no stage of human life that has not its part in the thanksgiving, praise, supplication, and reparation of this common prayer of the Mystical Body of Christ! . . .’ ”

The Church is called the Mystical Body of Christ because her members — in Heaven, on earth, and in Purgatory — are united by supernatural bonds with one another and with Christ, their Head. Thus, all together they resemble the parts of the living human body. Christ is the Light of the World.

The light of each individual is sanctifying grace, which, a light in each soul, unites all the members of the Church.

The doctrine of the Communion of Saints — the union of the faithful on earth, the blessed in Heaven, and the souls in Purgatory, with Christ as their Head — assures you that you have millions of friends, bound to you by the supernatural bond of divine grace and charity flowing from Christ.

In his encyclical letter On the Liturgy, Pope Pius XII wrote,

“Along with the Church. . . her divine Founder is present at every liturgical function: Christ is present at the August Sacrifice of the Altar both in the person of His minister and above all under the Eucharistic species.

He is present in the sacraments, infusing into them the power which makes them ready instruments of sanctification.

He is present finally in the prayer of praise and petition we direct to God, as it is written: ‘Where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

’ The sacred Liturgy is consequently the public worship which our Redeemer as Head of the Church renders to the Father as well as the worship which the community of the faithful renders to its Founder, and through Him to the Heavenly Father. It is, in short, the worship rendered by the Mystical Body of Christ in the entirety of its Head and members.”

Family prayer

Prayer and the sacraments are the ordinary sources of grace for the individual and for the family as well.

Happiness reigns in the home insofar as these sources of grace are used, because they are the means of bringing God into the home.

Parents who are deeply religious and are convinced that religion is not something just to be believed, but something to be lived, will encourage family prayers in the home.

Back in the third century, St.

Cyprian indicated that group or family prayers were in keeping with the spirit of the first Christians: “We do not say my Father, neither do we say give me, but give us; and this because the Teacher of unity did not wish prayer to be made privately, that is, that each should pray for himself alone; for He wished one to pray for all, since He in His single Person had borne all.”

How to Overcome Self-Pity and Depression

Prayer For A More Spiritual Life

Overcome self pity

How to Overcome Self-Pity Depression

How to Stop the spirit of self pity and depression.  The spirit of self pity is a spirit that will bind you to your hell of your past as if with super glue and not allow you to go on to the future. When you have self-pity – depression follows.

 That is the purpose of the spirit of self-pity to not fulfill the calling the Lord has for you.  Another way of looking at it is living in the land of the garbage and when you are reminded of the past and replay the past, it is rolling in that stinky garbage.

  Self-Pity is negative thinking – thinkin thinkin.  Your feeling sorry for yourself.

The enemy was there when bad events happened in your life and the enemy is good to remind you and get you to replay.

Why!  He wants to build strongholds in your mind such as unforgiveness, self-unforgiveness manifesting as self hatred, being hard on self and not allowing you to forgive yourself from past mistakes or replay what others have done to you to keep you from forgiving those who hurt you.  This creates self pity depression of heaviness and oppression.  The enemy does not want you free and will keep you in your past pains and hurt.

Symptoms of Self-Pity

The spirit of self pity is accusing spirits will accompanying the sin of Self pity depression and hold you fast – into feeling so sorry for yourself that life no longer works for you.

So, it is essential to let go of the past if we are to move into a new future potential of liberty in Christ.

Otherwise, you are stuck not able to move forward to the things Christ has preordained you to be.

Demons usually come in groups, not just one at a time, and the one who gains entrance, helps the others to come in.

When the spirit of self pity depression speaks, it can lead to defeatism coming in, which then leads to the downward spiral of depression, and feeling worthless and despairing.

Feeling worthless and despairing can also then lead to all sorts of bondage’s– alcohol, sex, drugs, overeating, anorexia because of feelings of being worthless.

Not only that, if you are sick, will not allow you to be well mentally. When your mind is sick, then your body can start to decay – the mind, body and soul connection. Everything is connected. Every negative thought releases negative chemicals producing disease.

How Not to Have Self Pity

How to stop wallowing in self pity.  The spirit of self pity depression must be surrendered to God for God to miraculous heal you – healing your wounded heart syndrome. One of the most effective ways to destroy the habit of feeling sorry for one’s self, is first of all to focus on God. Look at his creation and praise him. Several ways to surrender self-pity depression:

is to choose a favor ate scripture of promise of God’s word for you.  A faith healing and deliverance ministries in Texas.

Many times unforgiveness or self-unforgiveness is the key holding the spirit of self pity into place. That means doing what the word says and letting go and forgiving those who have hurt you.  How many of you have a hard time forgiving self?  Do you live in the land of regrets and reminded continuously?

Is Self-Pity Sin?

Yes, Self-Pity is Sin.   Self-pity is depression.  The devil gets you to replay over and over again the event keeping you as a victim of your past.

 He wants you not to forgive others and stay stuck in misery with unforgiveness, anger and hatred, resentment, rebellion of all sorts, even a murderous thoughts to self or others leading to a bitter broken heart.

 You feel hurt what others did to you.  Self-pity spirit – become a victim of what others have done, said to you.

What is self-pity?  It is a demon or familiar spirit that knows what has happened to you and projects fiery darts in your mind.  The more that demon gets you to replay the hurt the stronger the stronghold becomes.  You are in bondage to your deep emotional pain.

 The demonic influence does not want you free and knows when stuck in self-pity you will not fulfill the plans of God in your life or the callings.  You are stuck in the past.  It is hard for you to praise the Lord for the smallest of things.

We are to praise the Lord in all things but with self-pity or a broken heart, you have a hard time praising the Lord in anything.  You are in misery.

 You have a demonic oppressive spirit, spirit of heaviness leads to depression and sadness – a broken heart because of the demonic influence and listening to the demonic spirits speaking and reminding you what others did to you.

How to Overcome Self-Pity and Depression:

How do I overcome self-pity and depression?  The spirit of self pity can be a spiritual stronghold of thinking and might need more help such as deliverance prayers. Jesus came setting the captives free from generational curses, bondage’s, demon possession, through spiritual warfare by renewing the mind, etc.

5 Prayers That Are Way More Powerful Than Affirmations

Prayer For A More Spiritual Life

Whether you’re religious or not, the power of prayer can do wonders for your spiritual path.

Praying can help you to feel centred, connected to your inner self, and attract more positivity into your life; not bad for 5 minutes of your time! Max Ryan, spiritual life coach and teacher of A Course In Miracles explains how prayers can heal, and which types of prayers will be answered… 

It really doesnt matter who you’re praying to – call it God, Spirit, Goddess, Higher Self, Universe or whatever feels authentic for you, the important part is that you are open minded and receptive to the magic that can happen when you put your palms together. Prayer can change our perceptions, and when our perceptions change, our life starts to change.

The problem we often face when praying is that we only try when we’re desperate for something. You know the kind of prayers I’m talking about: “Please Universe, give me the job/get that guy to me/make this situation go away.

” When we’re in a state of desperation or negativity we shut off the flow of Spirit – which is why these kinds of prayers aren’t often answered.

Here are five types of prayer that will bring us more peace and shift our perception, and it’s when this happens that miracles start taking place:

1 Prayers of Allowing

A prayer of allowing is a prayer when you let Spirit work things out for you. This is allowing the divine flow of the Universe to arrange things beyond what you can do yourself.

This type of prayer acknowledges that you are the co-creator with Spirit and not the creator itself. An example of a prayer of allowing would be “Dear Spirit/Universe/Angels/Higher Self please let everything work out for the highest good involving the situation with my job.”

Think of Allowing Prayers as letting situations be resolved for the highest good of all.

2 Prayers of Gratitude

A prayer of appreciation or gratitude is a prayer that confirms all of the blessings and positive things that are happening in your life right now. As the powerful law of attraction states; we attract what we give attention, energy and focus to.

An example of a prayer of gratitude or appreciation would be “Spirit/Universe/Angels/Higher Self thank you for all of the love I have in my life right now.”

Now, in some situations it may be hard to see that you have love (or whatever you are asking for) in your life, but if you can find even just a little bit, be thankful for that! Once you’re thankful for that it opens up the energy to receive more. Also, appreciation and gratitude prayers can be said for anything and everything that you have in your life that makes you feel good right now.

Start affirming through prayer what you love and you will attract more of it.

3 Prayers of Confirmation

A prayer of confirmation is similar to a prayer of appreciation or gratitude except it is confirming that the positive situations you have in your life right now are worthy of attention.

I to think of a prayer of confirmation in terms of how things are working out well.

For example: “Spirit/Universe/Angels/Higher Self thank you so much for bringing this friend into my life who has opened my eyes and opened my heart.”

Prayers of confirmation are always affirming that things are working out and you’re acknowledging that everything in unfolding perfectly.

4 Prayers of Inquiry

Prayers of inquiry are very valuable in our lives. Inquiry is when we look at our inner or outer world and need some extra guidance or help in some way. These are the prayers when you feel a little lost or a little confused in your life.

This is the area where most people fall into saying a prayer of control or desperation, because they want to change it instead of asking for help or insight with it.

For example: “Spirit/Universe/Angels/Higher Self please help me to see a better way of dealing with this situation with my (job, family, self, money).”

The answers of these prayers may come in the form of situations that show up in your life, or situations where someone says something that changes your opinion or helps you to see things more clearly.

Prayers of inquiry are very powerful in our lives because it opens us up to new perspectives.

5 Prayers of Extension

Prayers of extension are prayers where it is not about you at all. It is about sending love, healing and resolution to other people in your life or situations in the world. For example: “Spirit/Universe/Angels/Higher Self please help my friend to see the good in this very painful breakup that she is going through.”

When we see pain in others or in the world we are asked to send love and healing to them. A prayer of extension does just that.
