Wow, I just saw this team all kneeling down together
Of football players praying on a field
What a powerful sight to see that witness that wow
I‘d like to see more of that going on to many of the places I go to
Prayer is so powerful
It is just a pipe line, a communication, a resource just to tap into
For being grateful, for asking for help, for healing
It encompasses so many venues of your life
I guess this team I don’t know if they want to win the game
Or they are asking for a player, for guidance, or their coach, family
A friend called me this morning, and was really upset about
something that was going on in his life,
something that he could not control the outcome,
as far as what was going to happen with this particular thing.
He thought he was losing his house. He was not paying his bills.
In fact, he had the money to pay his bills, but he just chose
to spend his money on something else.
This is a big thing for him, a scary thing for him about
where he is going to live, and what is going to happen.
My friend called the other day, and was very frustrated, and disappointed.
He was quite upset about something that was going on in his life,
something he could not control. It was something he actually brought into
his path by not taking actions that he should have taken,
on something that he knew he was supposed to take.
He ignored the situation and just went on to continue to move forward,
and then there were consequences to the decisions he chose to do.
And he didn’t like the outcome and had to wait to hear what the final outcome would be.
I got up this morning. I looked out my window. It’s raining, gray, chilly - a little cold out there.
But man, am I glad to be up. I’ve been given another day - another day.
My friend George will always say to me, “Hey, how are you doing.”
And I’ll say, “Good, how are you.”
And he’ll say, “Great. I got up. I got another day.”
Today on my schedule, things are a bit all over the place.
I’m going to be going here, and I’m going to be going there.
and say, “Thank you.” I keep repeating this as long as the bird sings.
No one ever told me to do this. I just know to do it.
I am not necessarily thanking the bird, although I include that too,
but I am rather, “giving thanks,” to everything, everybody, everywhere.
You can say I am thanking God, All That Is, the Presence.
What’s an invisible helper?
Some may call an invisible helper God.
Some may call an invisible helper an angel, a loved one who has passed over.
It really doesn’t matter.
It’s whether you think there is someone there to assist you.
I believe, I didn’t always, but I do believe now that there is a presence always there to help me.
So what I do in my life, is that I call upon that helper.
I think of that helper sitting beside me at work in a chair.
I think of that helper as someone with me in my car when I am driving somewhere.
I was thinking in my life I wasn’t receiving things.
And I felt stuck.
And one day, a good friend of mine called me on the phone, and as we were talking, she said, “You’re not stuck. Try this. It worked for me, and I think it will work for you too. Try saying, ‘I am always receiving.’” I thought about it, and said, “What the heck, I’ll try it and see if it works.”
So the very next day when I woke up, the very first thing I said was, “I’m always receiving.”
When something is bothering me, I mean really bothering me, I say, "Please bless my thoughts."
I stay with the intention for about 20 seconds, letting it do its miracle, seeing the thoughts become a misty fog - clearing, clearing, cleared. My mind feels absolutely clear, sort of illuminated, as if that is the way it was meant to be. It's like the thoughts were literally vaporized by the sheer and total benevolence of Spirit. If you don't like the word "bless", you can say, "Please harmonize my thoughts." It works just as well.
