Donate an hour of your time: Rev. Michele Synegal of our Center in Baltimore, The Spiritual Empowerment Center, requested prayer support for her community and her city. I immediately began praying the prayer I have been taught at Centers for Spiritual Living, an affirmative style prayer, dwelling on peace just as Rev. Michele suggested. I invested an hour of my time forming the affirmative prayer and then I posted her request on our organization's Facebook page and began collecting other people's written affirmative prayers (Spiritual Mind Treatments) and posting them there in the comments. Rev. Michele commented, "Thank you for your prayers. They have the power to change conditions!"
The instant I read that comment, I felt renewed in my commitment to spiritual work and I remembered that at the heart of our movement is the idea that prayer can change conditions. It just took me an hour; surely I can invest that a couple times a week, if not every day, for our nation and its beleaguered communities. And, if a person doesn't know how to write an affirmative prayer, a kind word posted on our Centers for Spiritual Living Facebook Page will have a similar effect. Or. a quick visit to the Online Affirmative Prayer Library will give you the opportunity to search for prayers by topic.
