ACIM Prayers For Willingness

A Prayer of Willingness

Holy Spirit, today we would step back frequently and give time to receiving Your peace, Love and understanding. We recognize that we do not know what anything is for on our own. We recognize that we do not perceive our own best interests. We have forgotten What we are and Where we are. Today we would open our minds to receive Your inspiration and peace of mind. We would let in the truth. That is our highest priority for today. And as we receive, we gratefully share with the whole Sonship. Amen.

Our Prayer of Willingness

This is our prayer for today: Holy Spirit, we are willing to melt into Your perfect peace… We are willing to step back and move into a place of quiet where we can receive your healing inspiration… We are willing to relax and follow Your lead… We know that we are not alone and we are willing to go into Your quiet place of peace to receive a change of mind… We thank You for Your constant presence, leading us Home where we belong.

Prayer For Willingness and Protection.


Lord, I offer You my willingness to come to You.
My longing for You is greater than any other longing.
Therefore, show me the Way to You.

I am willing to enter the inner silence.
I am willing to listen to Your Voice.
I am willing to let go and let God.

Prayer of Protection

The Light of God surrounds me.
The Love of God enfolds me.
The Power of God protects me.
The Presence of God watches over me.
Wherever I am, God is.

Practice, by Mark Houston.

Practice, by Mark Houston:
Spiritual success is gained by daily cultivation. 
If you practice for the day, you have won.
If you are lazy for the day, you have lost.

Self-cultivation is the heart of spiritual attainment. 
Gaining insight and ability is not a matter of grand statements, 
dramatic initiations or sporadic moments of enlightenment,
Those things are only highlights in a life of consistent activity.

Whatever system of spirituality you practice, do it every day.
If it's prayer, then pray every day.
If it's meditation, then meditate every day.
If it is exercise, then exercise every day.
Only then will you be able to say that you are truly practicing spirituality.

This methodical approach is reassuring in several ways.

First, it provides you with a process and a means 
to maintain progress even if that particular day is not inspiring or significant. 
Just to practice is already good.

Second it will give you a certain faith. 
If you practice every day it is inevitable you will gain from it. 

Third, constant practice gives you a certain satisfaction:
how can you say to yourself you have truly entered your spiritual path, 
unless you have had years of daily practice 
and can take comfort in the momentum that it has given you?
