SCRIPTURE – Luke 15:28-32 (NRSV)

25 “Now his elder son was in the field; and when he came and approached the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 He called one of the slaves and asked what was going on. 27 He replied, ‘Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fatted calf, because he has got him back safe and sound.’ 28 Then he became angry and refused to go in. His father came out and began to plead with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Listen! For all these years I have been working like a slave for you, and I have never disobeyed your command; yet you have never given me even a young goat so that I might celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours came back, who has devoured your property with prostitutes, you killed the fatted calf for him!’ 31 Then the father[a] said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and has come to life; he was lost and has been found.’”

Definition from Charles Fillmore’s, Revealing Word:

Pray – ‘Communion between God and man. This communion takes place in the innermost part of man’s being. It is the only way to cleanse and perfect the consciousness and thus permanently heal the body.

 

Introductory Remarks:

Jesus’ Parable of the Lost Son, reminds us of a powerful truth: ‘All that God is, and All that God has, is already ours.’ This means there is nothing more for God to do. Our spiritual inheritance has been given and it is up to us to ensure that our prayers prepare our consciousness to accept what God says is already ours.

 

~ MUSIC FOR THE SOUL ~

 

1. Pray accepting that YOUR spiritual inheritance is NOW, not sometime in the future. Let healing prayer prepare you to receive.

Pray:
God, Your will for me is healing and wholeness. Therefore, Your healing life energy sustains me now! Right now, It flows within me and throughout all my affairs, just as You designed it to. I give this healing life energy permission to heal my thoughts, words, and deeds that create a sense of separation within me. I willingly surrender this body, and every relationship, including my relationship with money, to You. In Your healing presence, I am ever one with the good that You have already provided for me.

 

Affirm:
I am restored and renewed in every day, in every way.

2. Let Jesus’ Parable remind you that God’s spiritual inheritance is impersonal. Both sons are entitled to it. Your Prayers help to cleanse your consciousness of erroneous beliefs like ‘mine and yours’ and enables you to:

        1. Base your conclusions on what is true and not on conditions as they appear.
        2. Direct your power toward what heals and uplifts you rather than what dis-empowers, limits, or brings suffering to you.
        3. Claim what is rightfully and righteously yours, without diminishing what belongs to another.

 

Pray:
God, You said, ‘Let us make man in our image and after our likeness’ and it was so. As your image and likeness, I speak the word of healing over myself and others. This word is a healing influence that moves mountains, comforts those who mourn, leads us through the valley and shadow of death, reverses negative circumstances and affirms our oneness in YOU. To God be the Glory now and forevermore.

 

Affirm:
I remember that God’s power mighty within me and them, is potent and powerfully doing its perfect healing work
