The Power of Prayer and Intention


To be prayerful does not mean that you have to be a part of a religious group or dogma. Prayer is all about intention. It is about feeling into and asking for what is within your heart. What is it that you need at this moment to bring forth love, harmony, and happiness? What is it that you require that needs the Universe’s support and love? What is it that you can’t do yourself that you need someone or something to lift you and raise your vibration and belief in something more significant than you?

These are all valid questions that when asked need precise answers. For how can a prayer or intention be answered if we are not clear?

The what is in your want or need and the how is where the Universe participates, and our only requirement is to relinquish control and allow the Universe to play its part.

We are co-creators and powerful spiritual and human beings. Be specific in your prayer and know that love will conceive love.

Some years ago, I had prayed for my daughter to be okay and for her to feel my love and when the time was right, for us to reconnect.  I re-affirmed this every night before closing my eyes to sleep. I didn’t pray in fear for her. I prayed trusting she was on her journey and wanting her to feel me for I missed her dearly.

I’m delighted to share that we did connect, although only for a short time and most unexpectedly and magically. You can read about it in my previous article Coffee and Cheesecake.
