Praying for Miracles

by P. Braithwaite

A Course in Miracles says that everything we see is an illusion. The Bible mimics this sentiment, the idea that the tangible things of this world are not real.

There is more to life than we know.

To that end, I’ve found myself praying differently. If nothing is real, but EVERYTHING feels real to me, I cannot rely on myself to pray for a specific outcome. I can only pray for strength, courage, wisdom and guidance to overcome what lies ahead.

To that end, I’ve begun praying for miracles — an event or occurrence that removes the veil of human perception and shows the face of divinity.

A Prayer For Miracles

Dear Lord,

Thank you for all that I have and all that I am. I do not know what to say or where to go, so I ask for your loving hand. I ask for a miracle, and I ask for the ability to recognize all miracles in my life.

And so it is. Amen.
