Daily reflections, Day fifteen, The Best Prayer Of All
The best prayer of all.
“Prayer is the medium of miracles. It is a means of communication of the created with the Creator. Through prayer love is received, and through miracles love is expressed.” ACIM, T-1.1.11:1-3
Do you pray? If so how and for what?
Prayers of intercession or beseechment which imagines God as some kind of vending machine is the work of the ego and not of the spirit.
True prayer is the desire to turn one’s being over to God and become one with God by aligning one’s will with God’s will for His Creation.
In Alcoholics Anonymous the third step is the willingness to turn one’s life and will over to one’s Higher Power however one understands it. To go with the flow. To let go and let God. To become one with Tao.
When this joining occurs there is a miracle. This willingness, no matter how small, makes all the difference in one’s life and brings peace and contentment.
Today, when you are fearful, guilty, angry, resentful ask, “What would Love have me do?” and do it. It is asking this question, “What would Love have me do?” that one prays the best prayer of all.
