Here are a few suggestions about releasing your prayers. All forms of prayer require a thorough release. When you say Om or Amen, let go! Turn your prayer over to God and gratefully trust that God will now do His part.
Letters go nowhere unless you mail them, unless you let go of them. Similarly, until you release your prayers to God, you are likely thwarting the interplay between yourself and God, thus rendering your prayers ineffective. You are musing rather than praying.
When you conclude your prayer, let go of it. Give it to God. Then live in the trust and belief that God has lovingly, wisely and perfectly helped the one for whom you are praying. Live in thankfulness and confidence throughout the day that God is moving and manifesting in a new way in the life of that person.
When you have several people to pray for, it is best to pray for each one individually — and release each prayer — before proceeding to the next person or situation.
These are the main errors which so often make prayer ineffective. Please bear these in mind and review them from time to time.
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Here’s how Jesus taught us to pray. You may enjoy studying and praying this often. Needless to say, it will help you immensely.
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory are Yours forever. Amen.
The Lord’s Prayer contains universal principles and mystical realizations which will help you to attune with Spirit whenever you pray. As you thoughtfully reflect and meditate on each of these sections, your prayer life will noticeably become richer and more potent. This prayer can be well stated in less than one minute. It can also be meaningfully offered, phrase by phrase, slowly and contemplatively, over an hour or two. When you can pray with a devoted heart and undivided mind you will likely witness many wonders within and around you.
I am conscious of my relationship with You.
Who art in Heaven,
You are the eternal, omnipotent reality.
Hallowed be Thy name.
Holy is Your Nature. In You is Wholeness.
Thy kingdom come,
May what You wish for us come to pass.
Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.
In the world, in me, in my body, mind and life.
Give us this day our daily bread.
I recognize that You provide all my needs.
I don’t worry about tomorrow.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
As I need forgiveness, help me, bless me, to forgive those who trespass against me.
Lead us not into temptation,
May I not yield to temptations but make loving, wise choices.
but deliver us from evil.
May my mind, heart and life not be separated from loving awareness of You.
For the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory are Yours forever.
