Prayer is Portable

I sometimes refer to myself as ‘Prayer Central’ since many of my friends over the years have asked me to offer prayer, reiki and in general healing energy for life circumstances that impact on them and people they know. I gladly comply. One reason is that it is such an honor to be asked to pray for someone. Remember the scene from the Jim Carrey movie Bruce Almighty in which he is sitting at his computer and prayer requests come streaming in?  In frustration, he presses a button and responds YES! to each one. What happens? Chaos ensues.  Sometimes the answer to our prayers is yes, sometimes it is no and sometimes it is a clear ‘not yet’. When that occurs, what I do is either reconfigure my expectations or sit back and wait until something shifts. It always does.

What I have also discovered is that I don’t pray FOR something. I give thanks in advance that the Highest Good has already begun to unfold since it is already in existence in the ‘mind of God’. I ask for the willingness to accept that reality. I see it as whole and complete.

Prayer is portable and need not be confined to an edifice such as a synagogue, temple, mosque church or shrine. It is as vast as Spirit itself. It is not meant to occur at specified times of day. Our channel to Divine Consciousness is open 24/7 and all we need do is tap into it.

So today, I invite you to be Prayer Central and offer love to the world around you. YOUR healingenergy makes all the difference in the world.

    Prayer is also very special to me and has been essential in my spiritual practice and growth. I loved studying different forms of prayer in interfaith seminary. Seems to be an intimate language to be shared with one’s understanding of the transcendent at any time for any reason and in any way that feels true. I appreciate the forms of prayer that are emerging and hope we integrate those forms into our prayer templates so that we can express what is wanting and waiting to be expressed in the moment, fully. Although, I think honest connection to Spirit is more important than form.

    Thanks, Rev:)

    I love the ways you weave prayer and song and magic and wonder into your spiritual life and how you shower those of us lucky enough to be in your sweet presence when you offer it~

Clothes Make The Man
As I was speaking with a client today, we were discussing ways that people learn who they are and how they re-create themselves when major life changes occur. I remembered a scene from one of my favorite films:  Joe vs. the Volcano. Tom Hanks plays Joe Banks who  has a dreary, gray life, with pre

Changing Your Mind About God
I was listening to an  NPR interview today with author Scott Chesire whose initial book  is called High As the Horses’ Bridles, which is a reference to an image connected with Armageddon. It is a novel, but in part, is based on his own experience as a Jehovah's Witness. In his conversation
