What is Affirmative Prayer?
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 is added to the jug, the clearer the mixture becomes – until it has no more tint from the dye.
Affirmations work in much the same way; they act like the clearing agent being poured into the jug to dilute the mixture of murky thoughts, beliefs, erroneous words, and negativity swilling around in our consciousness.
This is a helpful analogy to bear in mind if, while stating an affirmation, we experience resistance that says, “I don’t believe this,” or “this isn’t true”. Just remember… it’s simply a clearing process to replace the negative with the positive.
Affirmative prayer can be a really powerful tool to use – not to cajole, beseech, or impress a God of our understanding, but to change our perception of a situation and any false beliefs, or limiting ideas we may hold about it or ourselves.
Prayer changes everything –because it changes us!
Affirmative Prayer Resources
Affirmative prayer treatments are designed to support us with whatever situation we may currently be experiencing.
Remember to declare your chosen affirmative treatment and the associated stand-alone Power Statements with feeling and passion, until you feel the words vibrating in your body.
Repeat them often to dilute and replace any negative ideas, beliefs, or behavior patterns you may inadvertently be holding in consciousness. Personalize the statements, adjusting and tweaking the wording as necessary, to make them your own.

Affirmative Prayer Treatment for October 2019
“I am one with Divine Mind and might. Therefore, I know and experience myself as a valuable asset, with gifts and talents to share.
I already have all I need within me to make my worthwhile contribution in the world. Struggling to be successful is not an option, especially as I let the Divine grace and wisdom within me be my guide. I know and experience myself as peaceful, strong, capable. I can overcome any seeming obstacles and be victorious in my undertakings.
Bolstered by inner confidence, emanating from my conscious connection with the Divine, I choose to relinquish from my mind, all prevalent negative thoughts or behavior patterns, and recycled thoughts of failure. They only serve to hold me back. So, by replacing them with enhanced, positive, faith-filled attitudes, I witness how quickly good manifests in all parts of life and my affairs.
I do not give up or give in. I only expect bountiful blessings to express, in all situations, and they do so with grace and a bubble of ease.
I readily rise to new heights and dwell in realms of possibility I never dreamed I could attain. I am grateful. And so it is. Amen.
