Affirmative Prayer

THE POWER OF THE SPOKEN WORD

If prayer is a way to commune with God then Affirmative Prayer is a conscious way to do so –through the power of the spoken word.

Affirmative prayer helps give expression to, or affirm the Truth, our intellect is trying to grasp. It can be a really powerful tool to use – not to cajole, beseech, or impress God but to change our perception of a situation and any false beliefs, or limiting ideas we may hold about it or ourselves.

Imagine a clear jug to which is added a mixture of different colored dyes until the bottom of the jug contains a dark murky mixture. Then imagine pouring pure clear water into the jug. As the pure clean water is added to the vessel it dilutes the murky mixture. The more clear water that is added to the jug, the clearer the mixture becomes – until it has no more tint from the dye.
