Pray for one another, so that you may be healed

Pray for Others My connection to God fuels my compassion for others.



I am infinitely connected to God. And because God is the source of all life, my connection unites me with all living beings. Like a thread in a beautiful tapestry, I am an individuation of the whole. Other people may appear separate or different from me, yet when I look at the entire picture, I see that we are all connected. Compassion wells up within me upon the realization that we are all one.

If the emotions of others seem so overwhelming that my peace of mind begins to be affected, I find strength and resilience through the practice of prayer. I support and care for all of life by visualizing the perfect health and wholeness of each being. I do this because I am infinitely connected to all living beings through our oneness in God.

Pray for one another, so that you may be healed.—James 5:16

Verse of the Day: Jude 1:24-25

Sunday, January 24, 2016


Verse of the Day for Sunday January 24th, 2016:

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy — to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen. — Jude 1:24-25

Thoughts on Today's Verse....

What a great cluster of truths are found in this one prayer of blessing. Our eyes are first drawn to what God can do for us — prevent us from falling and present us before his glorious presence in joyful perfection. But on closer inspection, our hearts are drawn to the description of our incredible God: the one who is able, the only God, our Savior, the one who lives in glory and majesty and power and authority, the one who has communicated to us through Jesus our Lord, and the one who exists before all ages and who is alive now and who will be forevermore. Our blessings as God's children are incredible, but the reason why they are is that our God is beyond incredible, awesome, and wonderful. Our words cannot do him justice. Our brightest insights cannot comprehend the glory he has. Yet despite his grandeur, he loves you and me in our finite mortality!

My Prayer...

Awesome and Holy Lord Most High, thank you for not only being God, but for loving me and showing yourself to me in the face of Jesus. I look forward to standing in your presence, enjoying your shared perfection, and praising your glory with the angels. Please accept my limited and human praise until the day my words are unchained from their mortality and my imperfections are swallowed up in your glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Daily Word: Daily Inspiration From Unity
Compassion
I am one with all of humanity.

Sunday, January 24, 2016

When I think of the spiritual quality of compassion, I think of Jesus. The love he gave others was like a healing balm.
In quiet moments I remember God's compassion for me and for all people. I set aside time to fully engage with God's love. I extend myself to others through my compassionate thoughts and actions. Throughout the day, I behold the Christ in others and send them compassion-filled thoughts and prayers.
These heart-to-heart connections enhance my sense of oneness with the world. We are one with God and one with each other. I am an expression of God's love, and through compassion, I connect to—and serve—all humanity.
As God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.—Colossians 3:12

Daily Word: Daily Inspiration From Unity
Comfort
I am comforted by divine love.

Saturday, January 16, 2016

In times of sorrow, I recognize my need for comfort. Grieving is a natural part of life, and I allow the process to happen as I open my heart to the healing power of love.

I rest in the soothing, comforting energy of divine love. The fullness of love in my heart correlates with the depth of grief I experience from loss. Divine love flows through me as a comforting sense of peace.

Even as I walk through the valley of darkness, I know I will emerge into the light of a new day. In time, the ache of grief will be soothed by the poignant joy in cherished memories. I will see beyond the pain to find the gratitude in my journey.

Love never ends. I am comforted by abiding love, and the love of God that is with me always.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.—Matthew 5:4

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 10:7

Sunday, November 8, 2015



Verse of the Day for Sunday November 8th, 2015:

The memory of the righteous will be a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot. — Proverbs 10:7

Thoughts on Today's Verse....

Each of us is creating a legacy. The influence of our lives will leave an imprint on all those the Lord has brought into our lives for us to touch. This proverb reminds us that our legacy will live far beyond us. If our lives are righteous, that legacy will be an ongoing blessing as stories of our lives are passed on to future generations. On the other hand, if our lives have been given over to wickedness, we will leave behind the lingering stench of something useful gone sour and something lasting given over to rot.

My Prayer...

O mighty God, may my life be a sweet blessing to my children and my children's children — whether those children are physical or spiritual. May my influence bring you glory and also bring others to know you and your grace. Forgive me when I fail to see the length of the shadow my influence casts and help me to see those you have purposely sent my way to touch with your grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
