The energy of Love is a power just as real as electricity and far more important. It is a power that we can channel from the infinite, universal supply of the Creator — God. Through our intentional prayers, we automatically channel and direct this power.
When prayer reaches its destination, its nature is to bring balance and harmony, in the same way as healing does. It gives people extra power to heal, inspire and strengthen themselves and others.
If we hear on the news that there is a war breaking out somewhere in the world and that peace talks are about to begin, we may feel inspired to send prayers to the peacemakers. Prayer can be especially useful if used strategically. As the outcome of the war will depend to a large extent on the decisions of the peacemakers, it is a good idea to do this.
We should never ask in our prayers that other people’s minds are changed in any way. We should phrase our prayers in such a way that light, strength and healing goes out to the peacemakers, in order that they may be guided by their higher selves to make the right decision.
Another secret of success with intentional prayers is to give them everything we have and then detach and carry on with our everyday life. By giving all our concentration, faith, love, reverence and focus to our prayers, then detaching from the results, we are virtually handing them over to God. Detachment gives our prayers wings to fly to their destination in order to perform God’s magic.
Oh mighty God
I offer my heartfelt prayer in thankfulness to you,
And ask that I may be a channel for your peace and love
So that this may flow through me now to all life.
To humanity, in all its diversity of race and creed
People, plants, animals and even the rocks beneath our feet
So that we may know we are One planetary family
Dwelling within Thy Great Heart.
On wondrous Brahma
May your divine and infinite power flow now –
At this very moment – in an everlasting stream of light
To bring peace and freedom to our world.
