Using "affirmative prayer." Rather than begging or beseeching God, Source, or Creator involves connecting with the spirit of God within and asserting positive beliefs about the desired outcome. Affirmative prayer is the same method of prayer Jesus taught when he said, "So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" (Mark 11:24). If, for example, you were to pray traditionally, you might say: "Please God, help me find a job." By contrast, an affirmative prayer might be: "I am now divinely guided to my right and perfect employment."
Affirmative prayer reflects the certainty that we are each led to our highest good, despite any temporary appearances. Metaphysicians believe that thoughts transmit magnetic energy, and this energy attracts other energy of the same frequency.
Whether you are conscious of it or not, your thoughts are sending energy that is attracting more of the same. When you remain focused on your intentions, you will draw those things into your life.
Affirmative prayer " sets into motion the force that enable us to manifest what we pray for." Prayer is ineffective when accompanied or followed by negative thinking or the endless repeating of affirmations. We have to put focused-power and feeling into our thoughts, change our thoughts, and believe in the guidance we are receiving." If we spend energy on negative beliefs and feelings, we will get negative results, even if we and others pray daily for us. For example, if you pray for a job and then complain to others that you have no job or can't find one, you are undermining your prayer." By using an affirmative prayer approach, we can visualize and plan for the future with faith that the power of God is continually blessing our lives with unlimited possibilities. Affirmative prayer leads to an awakening of our Spiritual-selves. In faith, we pray, giving thanks in advance that the Universe is meeting our every need.
Try affirmative prayer for yourself, your loved ones, your community, and the world, and watch the changes we can achieve through blending our energies.
Here's an affirmative prayer to try for yourself.
"Divine Love is doing it's perfect work in me and through me now."
Visualize yourself connecting with the energy of Divine Love. Notice how it feels, how it makes you feel, does it have a shape, a color, a scent? Once you have that connection allow Divine Love to spread through your body and overflow to the air surrounding you. See yourself enveloped in a bubble of Divine Love. Start a journal to keep track of how Divine Love feels and the experiences you have when you work with it.
