A Prayer For Financial Support
PRAYER IS A PRACTICAL SKILL
When having financial problems, a person may wonder what kind of prayer would be most helpful.
Ultimately, each of us must turn inward and “feel” our way to a prayer (or inspirational prayers) that will turn the tide.
This image of a sewing basket under the word Prayers seems like a reminder that crafting a prayer that will “do the job” is like tailoring a garment for a specific occasion.
WRITING A PRAYER
Questions to ask when crafting a prayer may include: Does this prayer really fit the occasion or situation? (Is it getting at the crux of the issue? Is it what I really need?)
Does it cover my bare spots? (Does it take account of the fact that there are bound to be blind spots in how I’m looking at my situation?)
Does it clothe me in the energy I need to “wear” for this occasion, to give God the means to raise me up? (Is it addressing the root cause? Is it tapping into healing energy? Or is it reinforcing negative ideas about who I am and what I deserve? It is surrounding me with healing energy so I can begin to change and accept more money into my life?)
Do I feel or believe anything in it as truth? (Or am I just “going through the motions” by mouthing platitudes, superstition or wishful thinking?)
Bottom line, what does it make me feel? (Good or worthless? Empowered or at the mercy of exterior forces such as Wall Street or a capricious deity?)
WHAT PRAYER CAN DO
A good prayer, like a golden thread, connects you to something higher (Holy Spirit, healing energy, Love, a saint, your guardian angel) and evokes some emotion.
An effective prayer may evoke a smile, gratitude, tears, or relief. It may open a place within where you see the depth of some unforgiveness you have been holding, and it may prompt you to beg to be shown how to forgive.
A powerful prayer may touch unhealed pain that burns like fire and may bring you to your knees in regret or recognition. It may then cause you to sob in gratitude for the help and opportunity to finally heal. It may prompt you to feel compassion and new understanding of yourself or others.
A prayer, when it has hit its mark, may fill you with the conviction, vision and resolve you need to love more, believe in yourself more, take a step closer to your divine self, and make positive changes. It may lift you out of anger into wisdom, and out of despair and into joy.
Some old prayers, like The Lord’s Prayer, have tremendous power. If you have never felt that power, try slowly repeating that prayer several times with reverence.
Make it your daily mantra and it will work miracles. (As will the Never Failing Prayer To Saint Michael.)
Yet, do not be afraid of writing your own prayer. And, should you feel intuitively that your prayer is hitting its mark and helping you make the changes you need to make to go forward to a better future, then copy it onto beautiful paper. Treat it with respect. It is like a contract with God.
“I will change my thoughts and beliefs so I can love You, myself and all the world better, and You will bring me more of what I need to love more and be happy.”
I confess that when I read my own daily prayers (out of my book) they most often make me feel happy and, sometimes, quite elated. I often think, “How blessed I am that this came from my pen.”
So, although I did not plan to write this post today, when I read today’s prayer it filled me with such joy that I felt I must share a few words from it with you.
My hope is that it will evoke positive emotions and intentions for you, as well.
PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT
Your energy in this Universe is limitless.
It is ready to meet every need, comfort every heart, and fulfill every dream.
As many stars as there are in the sky – and there are trillions –
There is more of Your energy in the space between those stars
Than in the stars themselves.
For You are the Sculptor of all Energy.
You are the Creator of all Dreams.
You are the Master of the Universe.
You created this world and this universe freely and generously.
You did not hold back and You hold nothing back from me –
Not energy, not money, not fulfillment nor joy.
So I now release the need to hold back from myself.
Beginning with this moment, I release all blocks to my financial well-being.
I embrace the truth: money is just another form of energy,
and there is more than enough bountiful money energy for everyone, including me.
O God, my dreams are worthy of fulfillment!
I deserve money, ample income, every manner of financial support, and a joyful life!
Let me never doubt this!
Thank You, Glorious God.
I feel cash in my pockets and a joyful song in my heart.
And so it is.
