One way that I love to pray is to use a Thesaurus to help expand my sense of a quality and attribute of God such as stability, security, courage, or trust.
When I read that a nation or a person is dealing with instability, I look up stable. What does it mean? Where does it really come from? Recognizing synonyms for stable such as balanced, calm, lasting, and permanent show me that stability actually comes from God. They are attributes of God’s presence and power. They are evidence of our oneness with God. Because God is a divine Principle that is always present, the attributes of stability — mentally and physically — must be always present. This is because we live, move, and have our being in God, and we reflect God.
As each of us becomes more aware of stability, and it’s true source in God, we will recognize and experience more of the calm, peace, and consistency of good that comes from divine Spirit. God is always imparting these qualities in us and through us each moment. And God is able to voice them to each person. This is prayer of affirmation that awakens us to the good that is at hand and to our inseparability from God’s goodness. It helps us see spiritually, as Jesus did, “the fields are already ripe for harvest.” (John 4:35 NLT)
