Home and Business Blessing
A blessing for a home, or a business, is in reality a prayer that enriches
the people who reside there and who visit there.
While I cannot share my entire 30 minute business or home blessing, I do by appointment when visiting cities,
I am sharing a small piece of it with you so that you may use
it yourself to bless your environment.
Today I ask you to bless your home, or your business with prayer,
affirming that it is more than a house or an apartment, or a structure. It
is a haven of peace and goodwill. As you welcome people into your home or
business that has been blessed in prayer, you also welcome their full
expression of their God-given talents and abilities.
You envision your home or business as a place of genuine hospitality of
God's presence. The warm atmosphere of your home, or business, is a blend
of goodwill that has been contributed by all who enter its doors.
You include in your prayers all those who are searching for homes, or for
more harmony in their present homes. You include in your prayers all other
businesses including seeming competitors.
Let us pray:
God blesses this home with harmony and hospitality.
God blesses this business with harmony and hospitality.
God bless this place with love. Fill the heart of every member with Your
Spirit of gentleness and joy, with Your Spirit of forgiveness and
compassion, with Your Spirit of understanding and peace. God bless this
place with love so steady and strong that harmony is the order of everyday.
God bless this household with life. Renew and restore every member.
Strengthen and perfect us all. Heal and bind up every wound. Let the
presence of life be felt by all who enter here. Let the idea of life so
permeate this place that health and wholeness are the order of everyday.
God bless this home/business with rich substance. Fill us now with the
richness of spirit and purpose. Fill us now with faith in Your
never-failing supply and support. God bless this household with abundance
so that success and prosperity are the order of everyday.
God bless this household with happiness. Let the walls echo with heavenly
music of happy hearts. Let happiness be the order of everyday.
We are thankful to Thee, dear God, that this home/business is filled with
your presence. We are thankful that we live in Thy life, Thy truth, Thy
health, Thy prosperity, Thy peace, Thy wisdom, Thy Joy, and Thy love.
We are thankful that we, and all that are here will be conscious of Thy
holy presence from this day forth.
We give thanks, in the honor of Jesus Christ's name and nature.
You Hear My Call
Dear God, You have heard my call, and I feel the assurance of Your answer.
In the silence of my soul, I listen to the still, small voice that speaks volumes to me
and leads me to a realm of endless possibilities in this world of great potential.
Dear God, Your reassurance lifts my heart and mind above any challenge and gently,
tenderly releases me into a realm of peace and security.
Hear my prayer, dear God, for healing, prosperity, and serenity.
I rest in the assurance that You will always answer.
Through Your comforting presence, my faith grows and all that concerns me fades in the light of that faith.
Dear God, I called and You answered, for You are the answer - to my every question, and to my every prayer.
In Jesus Christ name... Amen
Prayer for Greater Awareness of God's Blessings
Dear God, I pray for greater awareness of Your pure life, health, and wholeness.
I pray for greater awareness of peace.
I pray that your life energy enlivens the cells of my body and establishes harmony within my whole being.
I pray that my life created by You, God, helps me to celebrate physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
I pray that I realize the love of God dwells in me and fills every fiber my being.
I pray that my heart sings with gladness.
I willingly open my mind and heart to receive new ideas from You.
I pray that I have the energy, and that I am eager to do my part in bringing those ideas into full manifestation of life.
I pray for guidance on my decisions, for the wisdom of God and the strength of God as my support.
In Jesus Christ's name... Amen
A Nine-Hour Novena
"But I trust in Your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in Your salvation." Psalm 13:5
St. Theresa Novena - REMEMBER to make a personal individual prayer before
you read the prayer. That's all you have to do
This is a powerful spiritual novena.
Every hour, on the hour, for nine hours, even if that means setting an alarm,
and waking from sleep - say this prayer aloud.
This prayer refreshes your soul, and heals human worry.
It tells the human mind that you're working on it, and God is working on it.
No challenge can stand up to God.
Divine order will take over, and comfort will be restored in your soul.
Put your personal need in God's hands.
Peace of mind is one of the best free gifts we can receive from God.
There is no cost, but a lot of reward.
The St Theresa Novena:
(Personal prayer need _____________________stated aloud.)
May this moment there be peace within me.
May I trust my highest power that I am exactly where I am meant to be.
May I not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May I use those gifts that I have received, and pass on the love that has
been given to me.
May I be content knowing I am a child of God.
Let this presence settle into my bones, and allow my soul the freedom to
sing, dance, and to bask in the sun.
When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times in the
past I looked so long at the closed door that I didn't see the one which
has been opened for me by God.
In Jesus Christ's name......Amen
GOD IS AT WORK IN MY LIFE
Dear God, I pray that I fully realize
You are at work in my life and affairs.
Help me to see beyond the moment, to the
perfect answers that You provide with Divine timing.
I am grateful that I am part of Your plan and that You
are part of my life. I consent to your infinite
wisdom and perfect timing.
I agree to a perfect outworking in all things, at the
perfect time and place. I do not believe in failure; I believe
in You, dear God. As I release my momentary concerns; you
provide permanent answers and solutions that will
ever increase to bless my life. I am
patience. I am at peace
In Jesus Christ's name... Amen

God-Empowered PRAYER to Quit Smoking
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." 2 Corinthians 3:17
"If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see,
everything has become new!" 2 Corinthians 5:17
This is my God ordained time, when I once and for all I quit smoking.
I have sustained motivation that is God-given and daily help
that is God guided and God strengthened.
I do not do this alone; I do this with my Creator's constant help, both day and night.
With God's help I set a quit date. I know that with the strengthening power
of God Almighty I have the power to have my last cigarette without grief
and live nicotine free my whole life long.
I ask God to heal me of addictions and cravings of my addiction. I am touched
by God to give up smoking, as they say, "cold turkey" for I know by experience
that slowly reducing the number of cigarettes does not work.
I have the God-given power to throw out all used cigarettes, matches, and lighters.
I do so without feeling loss. I throw away ashtrays creating a smoke-free environment.
I feel rich and blessed. This is a new year and the new time in my life I am not held back by the
mistakes of the actions of the past.
I have the faith to share my goal. I tell my family and friends that I have quit
and I ask for their support.
For a while, I avoid triggers that would cause my addiction to flare up. I make a list
of the people, situations and other triggers that I have for my own personal
smoking habits of the past. I even avoid food triggers for smoking, such as
alcohol or coffee, if these create the environment where
I will most want a cigarette.
If I find myself in a triggering environment, I pray that I am surrounded with
God's protection, and filled with a presence and the power that is greater than
my human self.
I am giving up smoking as a life-long present to myself.
I set a no smoking policy in my life with God's help. I do not allow anyone to
smoke in my home or car, and I avoid other people when they are smoking.
I take advantage of every God-given stop smoking aid. Just as God is the inventor
of personal willpower, God is also the inspirer and inventor of the scientist.
God gives many avenues and channels of help. Whatever it takes this is my year of success.
I am open to God directed human given aid.
I ask God to guide me to nicotine replacements, gums, skin patches, lozenges over-the-counter drug
therapy, Zyban or Chantix, nasal sprays and inhalers, from my doctor, and professional counseling,
for I know that less than one and 10 quit without some help BUT-this time I have God's help, and the
latest human medical help and that places me in the majority over my problem,
and in the successful quitter's column for life.
God I ask You to help control my moods and energy.
With Your help, God, I do not feel loss - I feel reward.
I reward myself for my daily success.
Taking back my control-I save the ALL the money that I would have spent,
wasted on former addictions for personal rewards of things that I choose to do.
I no longer spend money on habits that control me. I choose not to do it anymore.
God gives me back personal control to make decisions for myself and keep
the commitments that I commit to.
I ask You, dear God, to infill my mind with a clear awareness of my success
every day. Help me to clearly see the power that I had to change my life permanently
and help me to feel fully the success of my new freedom.
I am absolutely thrilled with each passing day that is passed, that I have passed
up smoking cigarettes. I feel new life and a youthening coming to my physical
body, and mind. I feel with Your help, dear God, as if I can do anything. I feel
like a victor instead of a victim.
Because Your power IS within me, no cigarette has power over me.
"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God?"
1 Corinthians 6:19
Dear God give me a willpower strength that is a thousand times greater than my own.
I no longer seek or feel comfort from smoking-it now leaves my physical
body - for my body is being rebuilt in the image and perfection of God.
I feel such joy, excitement, and freedom.
I join a support group; I support others and they support me. There is NOTHING
that I cannot do with God's help.
I join an exercise group, or a health club. My weight is not affected by my decision
to stop smoking; instead I have a new healthful glow, sustained energy, and
the power of strength realize through catching my breath with full-lung capacity.
It does not matter how long I have smoked, all that matters is that I stay
connected with God. Through the regeneration and constant re-creation of
every cell in my physical body, my body Temple is re-created into complete
total health not affected by the damages of smoke. I have strong cells,
strong lungs, strong heart, strong bones, strong new youthful vitality created
by the Creator - all working together for a long quality life span.
The ultimate gift is I no longer fear the health effects of every puff; rather
I feel the health effects and rewards of a body that is becoming like a child
again in vitality, and longevity.
In Jesus Christ's name...Amen

YOU WILL HAVE GOOD JUDGMENT
"Give ear, and hear MY voice." Isaiah 28:23
You have known people whose problems stemmed mainly from their lack of
good judgment. In 1st Corinthians 2:16, our Bible states, "We have the
Mind of Christ." Because all of us have the Mind of Christ in us, we have
the capacity for wisdom and good judgment. But this capacity needs to be
invoked and expressed.
Pray, today, aloud, "I express the positive power of the Christ Mind in
wisdom, love, and good judgment."
Today stay in tune with the Christ Mind.
If you are in doubt about some matter, if you are undecided as to whether
some course of action is the right one, open yourself to the Christ
direction. Christ will inspire you to use good judgment. Christ will give
you the wisdom to refrain from needless or unthinking action or reaction.
As you express the positive power of the Christ Mind, you'll find it easy
to follow a course of action that leads to happy results, and contributes
to your good and to the good of those around you.
In any set of circumstances, in any situation, there is always a way which
is the easiest, most direct way to take. By turning to God for inspiration
and guidance, you will discover the correct course of action.
When you have a decision to make, you quiet your mind and heart and seek
God. You listen within yourself for the still, small voice of inspiration,
knowing that God's way will be perfect and right.
No ignorance, doubt, or misunderstanding can withstand the clear shining
light of God's Truth. You let go of fear, anxiety, and concern that would
block God's clear voice of guidance in you. You let God inspire you to
greater achievement, and higher ideals. God gives you clear understanding
and right decision-making power. You are guided by God to follow the
course that is right and wise, rather than the course which may merely
You are always led aright through Divine inspiration.
You have judgments to make daily. Prayer helps you to find the exact
solutions to problems and to take the steps needed to bring forth perfect
solutions. Prayer helps you to have an open mind so that you can see all
sides of a situation in wisdom. Prayer inspires words and actions that
enable you to take an active, creative part in helping to establish good
judgment in your daily life. You are one with God and in that oneness you
are guided, directed, sustained, and given wisdom.
"The steps of the human are from the Lord." Psalms 37:23
In the silence of prayer, you gain the inspiration of the Almighty. You listen and you hear and your way is clear.
To God I Go
In this time we turn our thoughts to how we can
touch and be touched,
love and be loved,
forgive and be forgiven,
heal and be healed,
so that the goodness of our lives becomes a shared blessing.
In Jesus Christ name... Amen

and great in the Mind and Heart of God's infinite wisdom and Divine intelligence.
When confronted by piles of details, I instantly know that God's hands move
everything in order, and right action.
There is no rush, no worry, and no pressure.
Neither is there any laziness, or inertia.
Today, in my life, there is only God's perfect plan unfolding with all God's power,
continuous, and effortless flow.
I bless my day, and my day blesses me.
It is the most wonderful day that God ever made.
It is filled with happiness, abundance, harmony and health.
God has arranged all my appointments.
I meet the right people at the right time.
Unexpected good comes from unknown channels.

I bless this day and this day blesses me - for it is a gift to me from God!
Days like this are accumulative, leading to a God blessed lifetime.

Let us pray:

I live in the present moment and I am in God's peace. I live life now, in
the present moment, and I am free from fear of what could happen in the future.

quiet joy of prayer. I live in the present moment, in complete spiritual
well-being. I recall what Jesus said in John 15, "these things I have
spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full."
I live in the present moment, by continually refreshing my mind and heart
with the positive teachings of Jesus Christ to find that my joy is full.
In the present moment, I rest in the knowledge that God is the source of
all good. This moment God is my protector and guide. I rest in the
