Invoking Grace Through Prayer
If you have ever run a marathon, then you know that the training involved, at least for your first one, can be long and arduous. If not, pick anything that involved focus, dedication, and intention to reach your goal.
The close of 2012 and the energy that we are in the midst of, offers great opportunity for creating a shift so significant in your life that it can actually change the course. It requires intense focus, dedication, and intention.
From last week’s blog post you received guidance on how to start this gem of a process. There were two questions that I invited you to explore first:
What am I ready to leave behind
Where am I going?
Now, I am encouraging you to invoke Grace in the midst of your surrendering, leaving all that is no longer in alignment with who you are, and boldly stepping into the “what is next”. The key here is that in order to invoke Grace, you need to be willing to surrender to the unknown – the details. You need to trust that all will be well in putting yourself back together.
The only way to invoke Grace is through the act of prayer/meditation. Start simply by creating a daily practice of this.
Sit quietly for 8 minutes.
Breathe gently and say the Lords Prayer.
You can do this when awakening and before retiring. It’s that simple.
Be grateful for the experience(s) that you are in the midst of and be grateful for where you are certain you are going.
Focus – Dedication – Intention.
The Lords Prayer
Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, Forever and ever. Amen.
Be well and in Peace,
