Group active since Mon, Dec 20, 2010
After reading some of the comments on other discussion groups I thought it would be a great idea to have a group dedicated to a prayer chain. This group would be an outlet for those in need of support, love and prayers during difficult times in their lives. This way they can come to one place, and other members will have their names and be able to add them to their prayer list. In these troubling and difficult times that we are all facing I think it is needed.

Many major cities are home to beautiful parks. Amid concrete, rushing cars, and busy people are lush areas of beauty, play, and nature. So, too, in the midst of the busy thoughts and priorities in my mind, there is a place of peace and beauty.
The journey to my peaceful place is not measured in miles. With my awareness focused within, I follow my breath from my head down into my heart space. I allow each inhale to expand my sense of love and peace in the center of my being. Each exhale carries away the tension and distraction of things beyond my control and imagined limitations. In a time of quiet communion with the divine energy that infuses each breath and every thought with peace, I find rest.
Centered in peace, I am renewed.
I have calmed and quieted my soul.—Psalm 131:2

As I reflect on the direction of my life, I consider the things I would like to experience. I picture the result I want. I think about how I will feel when this blessing comes to fruition. I take these thoughts and feelings into prayer and envision the goodness I desire.
I hold a vision of peace, light, and love. My inspired vision sees beyond any appearance of chaos or limitation to the beauty and perfection that is inherent in all creation. I look past any seeming challenge to the completion of my inspiration.
Fully connected to the creative power within, I hold a vision of overflowing goodness. I see life rich with joy, love, and peace. I know that all things are possible, and I am open to my good.
So consider the word and understand the vision.—Daniel 9:23

Apollo Astronaut Captain Alan Bean once told a story about how test pilots evaluate problems they encounter on flights. When something goes wrong, they simply ask, “Is this thing still flying in the right direction?” And if the answer is yes, there is no need to overreact.
He told about the takeoff of Apollo 12 when the spacecraft was hit by lightning. The entire console began to glow with orange and red trouble lights. There was a huge temptation to “Do something!”
But instead, the pilots asked themselves, “Is this thing still flying in the right direction?” They let the lights glow as they addressed the problems one-by-one. And Apollo 12 made it to the moon just as planned.
Life is full of pressure situations… times when it’s tempting to overreact and do something drastic out of fear. But just like those Apollo astronauts, it’s important to ask ourselves, “Am I still flying in the right direction? Am I still doing God’s will?” If the answer is yes, then there’s no need to panic. We simply address our issues one-by-one and stay on course.
God’s trajectory will never let you down. Stay on course and trust in His plan no matter what else happens!

I am a spiritual being, created in the image and likeness of God, and as such, I have creative power. All things are possible through the power of God within, and prayer is an affirmation of those potentialities.
While I cannot control the events or people around me, I can manage how I think and feel about them and how I respond. When I pray for others, I do so not to control or change them, but to trust the spirit of God within them.
When I pray for others, I consciously utilize my innate creative power. I see the good in the people I pray for, and I affirm their divine potential for love, joy, peace, abundance, and health. When I pray for others in this way, I respond lovingly to life.
Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing.—1 Thessalonians 5:11

Only God will satisfy our spiritual hunger

Whenever you face a storm, your first urge may be to scream, “Why?” Certain storms do come into our lives because of our own sin, but many storms occur when we’re right in the middle of God’s will. We’re not doing anything wrong. We’re doing what God wants us to do. Certainly, that was the case for the disciples. Jesus told them to get into the boat and row across the Sea of Galilee. They were obeying Jesus when they suddenly found themselves in a horrific storm. It was so bad they didn’t even know if they’d survive. But here is the important message from that event – they did survive. With the help of Jesus, they did survive.
Accept the fact that your life will not be a perfectly smooth ride. The road will sometimes have bumps and potholes and sharp turns. All roads do. Look upon these tragedies and difficulties as part of life. Turn to Jesus for guidance and He will be beside you as you ride out your storms.

A gentle yet powerful message from Spirit within is continually calling on me to accept all that I can be. Today I unite in mind and heart with others celebrating Unity World Day of Prayer by affirming these words:
Aligning my mind and heart with the mind and heart of God, I center myself in Pure Being. In a state of spiritual realization, I remember I can never be broken, limited, or unworthy. Courageously, I rise into my true spiritual nature in this moment of healing. I heal the whole of me as I accept that I am brave. I am bright. I am beautiful.
My self-regard and self-respect are not mere platitudes but rather essential stances from which I support healing in the world.
Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.—Philippians 4:9
