At challenging times, I turn to Matthew for the reassuring words Jesus shared with his disciples, “For God, all things are possible.” There is only one presence and one power in the Universe—God, Omnipotence. Jesus spoke to his disciples about the kingdom of heaven—not a geographical location but a state of consciousness.
I enter a heavenly consciousness when I quiet my mind, let go of any attachment to appearances, and concentrate on Spirit within. I deny the permanence of situations and the power of conditions over me, and I practice the presence of God. In doing this, I experience peace. Through an unwavering faith, I know that peace in the world begins with me.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and ... whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.—Matthew 16:19

Prayer is more than words and rituals. It is an action, a way of reaching out in love to help, support, and encourage others. Mother Teresa, in her infinite grace and wisdom, advised others, “Spread love wherever you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” She was an example of prayer in action.
As I go about my day, I bless others. Each time I smile, lend a listening ear, or simply tell someone to have a good day, I am spreading love. These small acts of kindness are examples of prayer in action, ways of reaching out to others in a way that, hopefully, helps them feel happier in that moment. Whether I bless one person or many, I am an example of prayer in action as I reach out in love.
Let all that you do be done in love.—1 Corinthians 16:14

Today is an opportunity to recognize and honor the fatherly influences in my life, whether their role is a parent, mentor, teacher, or coach. Their encouragement and guidance gave me the gift of believing in myself.
My prayers also include fathers and stepfathers who are new to the role, learning the importance, dedication, and patience it takes. I bless the role models who are helping to build life skills and live by example. Whether changing a diaper, telling a story, attending school functions, or teaching how to ride a bike, at the heart of all that matters is love.
God’s presence is active in their lives. I pray they live in this awareness and enjoy the experience of watching children discover who they are and what they are capable of achieving.
I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you.—Isaiah 41:10

The Scottish novelist Robert Louis Stevenson is credited with writing, “Find out where joy resides, and give it a voice far beyond singing. For to miss the joy is to miss all.” To have a state of joy throughout the day, I make myself a conduit for it to move through as I share it freely.
I journey in a new consciousness of life. This day is a time of new beginnings, and I apply my energies effectively and constructively to make this the best day of my life. I give voice and action to joy as I allow God’s presence to work in and through me.
I know a happiness and satisfaction that cannot be diminished by circumstances. I am an expression of joy.
For the Lord will comfort Zion … joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the voice of song.—Isaiah 51:3

If my thoughts are muddled, I know it is time to go within and seek the clarity of the divine presence. In the stillness, the clouds disappear. I can think once again with spiritual vision.
When my mind and heart are centered in God, outer matters don’t distract me. I know that I am always divinely guided. Trusting in this truth helps me to know that my life is in perfect order. I think, act, and speak with clarity.
I spend time each day in prayer and meditation, pausing to refocus my mind. As a divine being, there is nothing that can disturb the peace of my soul. I give thanks that my thoughts, words, and actions are guided by Spirit within.
My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.—Psalm 49:3

One of Jesus’ greatest teachings was compassion. He demonstrated compassion when he fed the crowds who followed him, in his treatment of the fallen woman, and his many acts of healing.
I strive to follow these examples each day. When I see someone who is struggling, I lend a helping hand. I choose to express love. I choose to be a light in the world.
My expressions of empathy and kindness come from my divine powers of understanding and love. As I attune to these qualities within and let them flow from my mind and heart, I see beyond differences. I let my true Self reflect the expression of love that I am. I shine the light of love from my heart to others.
Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they regained their sight and followed him.—Matthew 20:34

Charles Fillmore, cofounder of Unity, believed that humankind’s purpose is to manifest the qualities of Spirit fully. I am in awe as I ponder the divinity that lives within me and expresses as me. I may refer to my divine nature as my inner spiritual being, my higher power, God, or Source.
In whatever way I choose to identify this power, I know there is a divine blueprint within that contains the spiritual qualities needed to live a fulfilling life of joy, love, peace, abundance, and well-being.
I have great faith that my inner spiritual nature will continue to unfold. I live my life confidently, knowing I am blessed as I grow into all I was meant to be.
My life is unfolding in orderly ways.
Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you?—2 Corinthians 13:5

Peace is a quality that resides in my spirit always. I tap in to peace as I align my thoughts with God within. My divine nature is peace. If circumstances in my life seem to be out of order, if someone I love is facing a difficult situation, I call upon my power of peace to calm my emotions and remain centered in faith.
I take time to connect with the peace of my being regularly. As I turn within, I allow my breathing to slow. I center myself in the present moment. Nothing else in this moment matters. I am calm and peaceful.
Taking a few quiet moments during the day keeps me centered and allows me to function in grace, even in the most trying circumstances. Nothing can disturb the peace of my soul.
Whatever house you enter, first say, “Peace to this house!”—Luke 10:5
