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.
A miracle is a shift in perception from the world of the ego to the world of Spirit. A miracle is a decision to focus our attention on love instead of the idols of the ego. The best prayers are prayers of forgiveness and gratitude. When we forgive and express gratitude, love is received and a miracle occurs.
In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God as we understand God through prayer and meditation. AA suggests that we work miracles.
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote a respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Perhaps we want to add love to the respect for it is in loving the Oneness that we find bliss.
Today, we are reminded that if we are to work and experience miracles it is helpful to pray. What should our prayer be? It should be a prayer of forgiveness and gratitude. We can cultivate prayer to the extent that our whole lives become a prayer.
