Recently I was talking to a very good friend of mine who shared with me that she no longer knew what to pray for concerning a present situation. I asked her what did she want for her mother and she said, “I want for all of her needs to be met, that she be free from pain and for her to have a closer connection to God” Then that is your prayer, I said, and I began to tell her about Right Action. There is an Infinite Intelligence at work in the Universe that knows exactly what it is doing, and when we align ourselves with this principle we find inner peace. In the Science of Mind, Ernest Holmes states “When we treat for right action we should start with the supposition that right action already is ” Right action is the natural unfoldment of the universe as it evolves towards the highest and ultimate good. I would like to share with you what the World Ministry of Prayer has to say.
Right Action comes from right thinking. Your definite idea or concept of the good you desire to experience in your life, joined with a complete acceptance of that good, will inevitably bring about positive change. This result must take place because you are in partnership with the creative power of the universe. There is something within you that is forever connected and fused with this power and has never been divided or separate from it.
Being inherent within you, it is infinitely available to you and you can call upon it any time and to any extent you choose. This spiritual power operates unfailingly through the medium of your thoughts. Just as in nature, a particular seed produces the same kind of plant from which that seed came, so in the world of human affairs your thoughts produce equivalent experiences. Through the right use of your creative power, you can enter into a new experience. You can produce for yourself a life of freedom, abundance, peace and fulfillment. This universal power within you is always demonstrating your use of it in all the events, circumstances and activities of your life, responding to you according to the thought you present to it.
When you have done these things, and turned your thought in the right direction, nothing can prevent the good which you have declared from becoming manifest. That which you set in motion today becomes your experience tomorrow, through the operation of spiritual power upon the pattern of your thought. Right action will manifest easily, naturally, and freely in every area of your life, responding in kind to your positive thoughts, your God-centered attitudes of thanksgiving, loving, kindness, and faith.
The next time you are stuck and are facing a challenge and are unsure of what to pray for, then I lovingly invite you to pray for Right Action and trust that the Infinite Intelligence within you knows exactly what to do to bring about your Highest Good.
