Pray for mutual understanding.
October 22, 2023
When others are gravely ill, surround them with strong thoughts, imaging perfect health. It is not to say that in all cases an individual will be healed as you wish, but it is a guarantee that God’s healing will take place. The healing may be a spiritual healing as well as a physical one. You cannot be concerned that God will make a limited response to your needs. When you pray, you pray for a resolution; you don’t pray for specifics.
If you pray for a war to stop, you are really praying for mutual understanding, for if hostilities are ended and there is no mutual understanding, they will resume. Apply your energies in life, therefore, to drawing God’s peace into your life through your mental conceptions and not merely your individual requests.
