Prayer – thinking good thoughts
MKMMA Experience Week 21 –
Prayer – sending out good/positive thoughts and love to the universe …to create miracles
1. request for help or expression of thanks made to God or a God
2. (prayers) a religious service at which people gather to pray together
3. an earnest hope or wish
For those of you reading the MKMMA blogs you will know that our emphasis is on changing our outer world by positive thinking. Would some call that prayer?
I can remember when I was a church secretary that I would call up our prayer chain if someone wanted the group to pray for a sick loved one etc. and I would always tell them that I believed prayer could change things. That was before I was in this course or had really given prayer a lot of thought, other than I knew in my soul that prayer did help.
Prayer: a group of people all projecting to God or universe good thoughts about the person getting well! Or should I say an alliance of people, like our group, all trying to do a kindness – think good thoughts – for the good of all concerned. Sound like the readings we do daily??
The intro to our Master Key lesson this week reads:
In paragraph 8 you will find that everything which we hold in our consciousness for
any length of time becomes impressed upon our sub-consciousness and so becomes
a pattern which the creative energy will wave into our life and environment. This is
the secret of the wonderful power of prayer.
We know that the universe is governed by law; that for every effect there must be
a cause, and that the same cause, under the same conditions, will invariably
produce the same effect.
Consequently, if prayer has ever been answered, it will always be answered, if the
proper conditions are complied with. This must necessarily be true; otherwise the
universe would be a chaos instead of a cosmos. The answer to prayer is therefore
subject to law, and this law is definite, exact and scientific, just as are the laws
governing gravitation and electricity. An understanding of this law takes the
foundation of Christianity out of the realm of superstition and credulity and places it
upon the firm rock of scientific understanding.
But, unfortunately, there are comparatively few persons who know how to pray.
They understand that there are laws governing electricity, mathematics, and
chemistry, but, for some inexplicable reason, it never seems to occur to them that
there are also spiritual laws, and that these laws are also definite, scientific, exact,
and operate with immutable precision.
Paragraph 8. When we realize these facts concerning mind we understand how we may bring ourselves any condition by creating the corresponding conditions in our
consciousness, because everything which is held for any length of time in the
consciousness, eventually becomes impressed upon the subconscious and thus becomes a pattern which the creative energy will wave into the life and environment of the individual.
From the science of spiritual law we learn that every thought creates an impression on the brain, that these impressions create mental tendencies, and these tendencies create character, ability and purpose, and that the combined action of character, ability and purpose determines the experiences with which we shall meet in life.
Our alliance reads information daily to help form good thoughts and one line is “I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects”. Our thoughts, if they are for the good of all and do not take away from anyone, if held, can create miracles. And there are miracles all around us, if we just took time enough to be still and look.
I truly believe, like I felt in my heart many years ago, that prayer (sending out good thoughts) creates miracles all around us. I have seen it happen. And, it is my prayer that our alliance will educate more and more people to join together in loving thoughts to help our fellow man – our world.
Think about it: Einstein said: There are only two ways to live your life – “One, is as though nothing is a miracle the other as though everything is a miracle.
.. for it is proven that universal energy – good thoughts – prayers – creating miracles around us.
We are all nature’s greatest miracles … our creation and birth was a miracle and we still are. We struggled to walk, but we kept trying, we can still strive to grow and find our bliss…
