Prayers

There are times when I'm at a loss of how to pray effectively for someone or a situation.  Each day and all throughout the day my prayers and thoughts envelope my loved ones and also anyone that asks for prayer.  When asked, I stop what I'm doing and I send whatever comes from within.

And then there are times when I feel overwhelmed and can only ask God "How do I pray for this?  I don't understand".  I know by now in my life that I don't really have all the knowledge or information regarding any given situation or person.  I can't judge why "this" or "that" happens.  I DON'T KNOW.  I can only TRUST that a Higher Power is watching and guiding and knows what is best for all involved.  And that it's all good.

At this time someone who was very much a part of my life many years ago, who is far away, is going through their last stages of cancer.  They seem to be very close to making their transition.  This morning I was guided to light a candle for them and to be with them at a distance sending peaceful thoughts.  I sent them thoughts of tranquility.  I was guided to repeatedly say to their mind:  "Be tranquil.  Allow the light that you are to fill and envelope you and open up to God." 

What I discovered today is that even when I don't know how to pray for someone or a situation, as I remain still and quiet, Spirit within gives me the feeling, the words, the actions, whatever I need at any given moment.  And nothing comes to me.  Just to be still. Just light a candle representing the Light that we all are may be enough.
