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 December 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 acknowledge God as my source and welcome unrelenting streams of money substance into my life for use with wisdom and generosity. And so it is. Amen.”
— Rev. Paulette Pipe

Affirmative Prayer Treatment for December 2018

I affirm:

"In this season of Light, I allow the illuminating glow of inner faith, peace, love, and joy within me to fuel goodwill and generosity that lingers long beyond the fading embers of Holy days.

In the stillness of this moment, I harness the faith already present within me and allow it to courageously spur me on to the other side of immobilising fear or niggling doubts. 

In the stillness of this moment, I harness the peace already present within and let it be reflected through my words and responses, my actions and reactions.

In the stillness of this moment, I harness the love already present within me and its vivid and palpable power inspires in me greater expression of patience, compassion, and kindness for which no wrapping is necessary. I readily share these God-inspired presents with everyone whom I encounter along my daily path, not only during this Holiday Season but through all the calendar days of the year ahead.

In the stillness of this moment, I harness the joy already present within me that shines forth from a reservoir deep within, which can never be expended—even in the midst of challenge or pain. The brilliance and radiance of Spirit’s light refracts healing that transmutes grief, pain, sorrow, disappointment or isolation into its spiritual equivalent. 

I let my brilliance shine forth as the faith, the peace, the love, and the joy I am here to experience and express.

And so it is. Amen."

Power statement: 

“I rejoice in the lightness of these holy days and become the faith, peace, love, joy, and the gift I hope for. And so it is. Amen.”
