The Power of Prayer; Hope, Comfort, and Joy

From https://swedenborg.com/the-magical-power-of-prayer/

Regarded in itself, praying is talking with God, while taking an inward view of the things we are praying about. In answer we receive a similar stream of speech into the perceptions or thoughts of our mind, so that our inner depths open up to God, in a way. The experience varies, depending on our mood and the nature of the subject we are praying about. If we pray from love and faith and focus on or seek only what is heavenly and spiritual, something resembling a revelation emerges while we pray. It discloses itself in our emotions in the form of hope, comfort, or an inward stirring of joy. (Secrets of Heaven §2535)

Overcoming Divisiveness w/ #RevKit #ChurchAt11

Today’s Worship Service is entitled, Overcoming Divisiveness”.

Delve into your own spiritual calling to foster harmony and new growth. When you are challenged by what appears to be a broader divide in society, or when you’re experiencing conflicts within yourself or in your family’s life, follow a pathway of faith, and trust in the Lord.

When struggles and anxiety are in your life, give yourself the tools to find a sense of balance and harmony.

    From: https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/a_scientific_reason_to_stop_and_smell_the_roses

    Robert Emmons, perhaps the leading scientific expert on gratitude, writes that gratitude isn’t just about acknowledging the goodness in one’s life but also “recognizing that the source(s) of this goodness lie at least partially outside the self.”

    Psychology Professor Nancy Fagley says,

    “The challenge in fostering appreciation,” she says, “is that we want to periodically reflect on the positive aspects of our lives, value our friends and family, relish and savor the good times—without the practice of reflection becoming a rote habit or something that is taken for granted.”

    She suggests people

    “focus on and value what they have, spend time outdoors, and reflect on their blessings and relationships with others.”
