Affirmative Prayer Week of 1/6/19
The following is a transcript of Rev. Brian Akers’ affirmative prayer on Sunday, 1/6/19:
Please join me in this affirmative prayer. Because what I know is that right here and right now we have begun a journey of our principles that calls us to our awareness of the expansiveness of the Cosmos. And now we take it one step further. We know that God is not only that stuff out there in space but it is all the stuff inner space – it is all thought and feeling and experience as well. It is all that exists. And in Its allness, It saw fit to create and give rise to each and every one of us. We are just so blessed and so aware of our connection and our unity to each other and to our God through this Oneness, that we let it be the first thing that we think about in the morning and the last thing we think about at the end of the day, and the very measure by which we bring ourselves into the world and cast our vision out upon it. It is all that there is, It is all one thing and in Its Oneness, it is good! And that power for good is ours to use. And so we do now! Our awareness of It is our power to use it.
And so we just give thanks and we accept all of this knowing that it is already done and already so, as we relinquish it and surrender it to an impersonal Law that, just like the laws of gravity and electricity and so on, takes this word that we speak, this thought that we have, this feeling that we embody, and brings it about, all around us, reveals Its presence everywhere that we look and is the very life that we are leading now. It is already done and it is already so. And together we say, and so it is!
