Today, this 6th Sunday, of the Six-day Prayer Practice series, we are celebrating 125 years of Silent Unity which was founded on healing prayer. WE pray from the consciousness of Christ indwelling, as opposed to praying TO the Christ, “out there.” God is unchanging. Our prayers change US, and bring us into alignment with God Good, the eternal Truth of our wholeness as the image and likeness!
On this, the 5th Sunday in the Six-Day Prayer Practice series, we are reminded that we are connected to that which knows all! Creation is finished. It is our job to bring these limitless Divine Ideas into manifestation. It’s time to stop playing small and realize that the answer to every question we may ever have lies within us. However, we must know what question to ask and how to ask it; we must be open to the answer and ready to receive it.
How many of us wake up in the morning wondering if this will be the day the “Big One” (speaking of California earthquakes) will hit? Not many! No, instead, we worry about the small inconsequential things, producing ill health in body and affairs. We forget that worry is a CHOICE! When we turn from worry, we free our minds and bodies from its negative effects. This is our invitation on day four (Thursday) of the six-day prayer practice.
This week, we are invited to ask ourselves the question: “How do I see myself?” Can we see ourselves as the salt of the earth; the light of the world? In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus, reiterated the same message – the way to the kingdom of heaven is through surrender to Spirit.
Following the readers’ theater portrayal of the woman at the well from John 4:7-26, Michael Schoonover, L.U.T. continues in character – as Jesus – to teach of the Living Water within each and every one of us. He invites us to follow Him in the remembrance of our own divinity; to listen to Spirit, indwelling, and thereby enter our own process of regeneration and, in the end, our resurrection.
