When I checked in with Spirit this week to ask what the weekly topic should be, the phrase “The Power Of Prayer” came through. It’s always a fitting topic that I don’t think gets discussed enough so let’s dive in…
This technique of master lightworkers is the first line of defense.
I’m using “The Lord’s Prayer” as a template because of my Christian background, however, most prayer rituals across cultures follow a similar format so feel free to use one that resonates most with you….
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Part 1: First, you open your prayer speaking to “Mother/Father God, Source, Universe, Holy Spirit, etc….” and calling that in. This shifts your focus to the specific Being or Energy which you are wanting to commune with. The more specific you are, the more attuned (in harmonic resonance) you can become. This is where you want to spend the bulk of your prayer time--sitting in communion. As you allow more and more space for this, you will find the energy embodies you much more easily. Your “answer” is actually going to be deposited here in the spirit.
Hallowed be thy Name.
Part 2: Then, you speak about the qualities of Mother/Father God, Source, etc and express awe and devotion. Afterwards, you speak words of gratitude for the mere existence of these qualities and how this has benefited your life, the lives of your loved ones, etc. With the alignment of your mind/consciousness and energy from Part 1 comes this opportunity to bring your Heart in communion. The experience is usually one of warmth and deeper relaxation (maybe even tears!) if you’re really allowing yourself the time to listen. This is the second longest amount of time you’ll spend in prayer.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Part 3: Next, you intentionally speak this power and presence into your physical body, the space around you, your home, your family, your friends, your community, and beyond. Amplify it. Affirm your agreement for being a vessel of the physical manifestation of Spirit into form. Affirm your agreement to be submitted to the direction of Spirit. Affirm your agreement to remember your true divine nature. This is the third longest amount of time you’ll spend in prayer.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Part 4: At this stage you come to your intention for the prayer. Do you have a question and are seeking guidance? Ask it now. Do you want to receive spiritual insight on a particular matter? Talk about it. Do you want to send blessings or support to another? Speak your request. You can either set aside a specific amount of time to get your messages--either through silent meditation, writing, divination tools, etc--or ask that they come to you in other ways throughout the day/night.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
Part 5: Clean the slate. Call back your energy, thoughts, or emotions that may have hurt another or crossed a boundary and ask forgiveness, whether you’re conscious of any potential hurt or not (and if you are conscious of something, speak that person’s name specifically). Send back any other person’s energy, thoughts, or emotions that may have hurt you or crossed a boundary, whether consciously or not.. Send them forgiveness. Affirm the energetic boundaries of all sovereign souls. Send love and mercy to all, including yourself. Drop the fight.
And leave us not in temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
Part 6: Ask for clarity on what, if any, areas are needing to be worked on to keep you on your path of spiritual and personal development as well as your external goals. If you’re “doing your work”, then there may not be any additional suggestion other than “keep going”.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
Part 7: Express gratitude. Affirm that all which has transpired during your prayer time (Holy Communion) is for your highest and greatest good. Affirm that it is established through the power of the Divine which is all-powerful.
Part 8: As the great Creator Being that you are, your words command the heavens. When you say, “So it is” or “So be it” or “Amen” or any other similar phrase, you are using your spirit to seal and release the power that was just cultivated.
With this deeper exploration of how to structure your prayers, become the spiritual scientist and experiment with this framework for 7 days. What do you notice after 1 day? 3 days? 7 days? Are you finding your prayers more powerful, deep, heartfelt? Are you seeing quicker results? Share with me your results!
