Prayer and Prosperity

Prayer and Prosperity
Many years ago, a popular song contained the lyrics, ‘love and marriage, love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage.’ The old-fashioned song pairs the two as the ideal…. Love leading to marriage. In a similar way, prayer and prosperity are the ideal pairing. Prayer leads to prosperity!
Is it possible to pray regularly without being prosperous? Yes, unfortunately. During the month of September, we are going to explore prayer; what makes for effective prayer, ways to pray, and ways we might be bringing in more negative results. While I believe that there are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ ways to pray, I think we can be much more effective in our prayers. Just as we would never choose heavy boots for running, we can choose affirmative prayers for living happy lives.
And then, how about prosperity? We might be walking around with an erroneous idea of what being prosperous means. If we think in only material ways, we might find that those thoughts can keep us frustrated and feeling ‘poor.’ We’ll re-discover that ‘prosperous’ can relate to our relationships, our sense of well-being, as well as our finances.
As we get into our fall routines and begin to think about the holiday season, why not prepare ourselves to be more fulfilled, peaceful and prosperous? Plan to come to services to learn more about prayer and prosperity!

Love and blessings,
Rev. Sharon
