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.


Dynamic Prosperity Decree for November 2018

Each month we feature a Dynamic Prosperity Decree which you’re encouraged to use before you “Donate” where you have been spiritually fed or have witnessed spiritual principle in action. We’re featuring it here for you to decree and perhaps consider affirming before sharing your financial gifts, wherever it is that you have decided to tithe or donate this month.

I am God’s living enterprise and God’s life, love, prosperity and Divine order are in graceful expression in all my affairs and circumstances.
And so it is. Amen.
— Rev. Charline E. Manuel, author: Pray Up Your Life

Affirmative Prayer Treatment for November 2018

I affirm:

" I am thankful and grateful that I am empowered and inspired through times of meditation and stillness — from where I can more easily hone and cultivate my intuition.

I am thankful and grateful that whatever it is I need to know, understand, or transform in myself, arises from that place of peace. I speak, think, and act on the clarity that emerges for me, when I am attuned to Spirit’s direction.  

I am thankful and grateful for right, real, and relevant guidance; and for the enlightenment, courage, and zeal tempered with wisdom, with which to effect positive changes in the health of my affairs, finances, relationships, community, and environment.  

I am thankful and grateful nothing from my past can stall, nor anything from the future thwart, the Power of Divine Presence desiring to move through me as wisdom and heart-centered action. 

As I peer through the opaque veil of problematic appearances, stillness grants me Divine insight. I discern new and previously-unnoticed possibilities that cause all indecision, discontent, or discord to wither into the mist of nothingness from which they surfaced.

Feelings of gratitude and thankfulness saturate my heart and motivate me to seek the sagacity of stillness, where I become one with Divine Mind. 

I am at peace.

And so it is. Amen."

Power statement: 

“I trust the wisdom of my practice to sustain and guide me into becoming a faith-inspired ambassador of kindness, courage, and peace. And so it is. Amen.”
