Expanding your prayer power
More is better, right? That's the message we hear repeatedly from the AT&T commercials with the cute kids sitting around a table in thoughtful discussion.
Does that "more" theory apply to everything? Can we apply it to our hopes, our dreams, our wishes? What is the best way to do that? How do we multiply the good things in life, the desires of our hearts, that we don't yet have, into our personal daily existence?
Alcoholics Anonymous has sponsors in hopes of more sobriety, companies have mentoring programs with hopes of greater productivity, famous singers partner to sell more records. But what about your prayer time, can you get more from that?
From Matthew 18:20, "Where two, or three are gathered together ..." highlights the strength of more than the individual. Prayer partnering multiplies your blessings.
You don't have to go through the rough times alone, there are prayer groups, call lines for prayer like Silent Unity, Facebook prayer requests, and having a prayer partner. There's even a workshop on prayer partnering.
Reverend Susanna Margaret Goulder, a local interfaith minister, currently teaches just such a workshop, titled "Prayer Partner Program for Quantum Leaps," which she presented at Unity Spiritual Center Westlake on Jan. 26 to rave reviews.
Giving uplifting Sunday sermons and workshops at churches throughout the area is light-years away from her previous profession – set decorating for TV's "Sex in the City." But the light that fills her now is a light that will never extinguish. She knows from life's experience what it means to lose things you love. Within a very short time she lost her job, her apartment and her relationship. From these life bumps she found the answer, and it's both simple yet hard – go inside, let go and let God. She discovered God works in concert with the world's elements to raise one's consciousness.
Her workshop gives a greater awareness of Divine Presence within you, within everyone. This workshop teaches you how to pray powerfully, partner in powerful prayer, and how partnering can accelerate manifestation while working with the law of attraction. Comments from previous workshops mention how easy she is to listen to.
Susanna left a glamorous career for a more meaningful one. Years ago, guided to enter the seminary, she chose to let go of things that were preventing her from being her true self. Being our true self is a calling we can enthusiastically respond to.
Unity Spiritual Center, 23855 Detroit Road, has a Prayer Power Hour every Wednesday at 7 p.m. Each month focuses on one of the 12 powers/abilities. February's is Strength. Contact Susan Armstrong, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
