We often say in Unity - "thank you for answered prayer" and this simple statement activates and starts the prayer process. I truly believe this in my heart, but, which is a little word that stops the flow, I confess that I can't always help myself from asking for specific outcomes, even though I know in my heart that I should hand over the "outcomes", to God, Spirit, trusting that the right and perfect "outcome", will manifest. and in fact the process is already in motion as it were.
On this note, I would like to share with you my recent prayer experience involving my son's future.
I suppose a mothers instinct is to try and fix things for their child (no matter how old they are!). This time I literally made the conscious choice to, Let go and let God, and over a few weeks the right and perfect outcome, did in fact manifest. I kept myself focused on the knowing that Divine grace and all encompassing Love, wisdom, guidance etc was taking place, and it was all I needed to do. Whenever the human instinct of interfering crept in, I got still, reconnected with my inner truth that God is, and all is well, and the anxiety quickly subsided.
Now I have the tangible proof of answered prayer. I deeply recognise that our part is to keep ourselves aligned and in tune with our Divinity, and keep the human side of ourselves to serve as the vehicle for expressing, and being the channel for the Divine flow.
I am very grateful for Unity and especially Silent Unity, who are and always will be my "Go To" place for support in any challenge that life sometimes presents to me. Thank you.
