The Sanctuary of the Open Heart is devoted to nurturing each beloved in our community, and prayer is a powerful tool to embrace each heart in divine Love.

We are all one, inextricably interwoven and linked to each other as one vast cosmic being. When one part offers intention or prayer to another part, of course it is received as it is a part of the same whole. Prayer brings attention and intention simultaneously to bear on what you are praying about. The stronger the love that directs the energy field within you, and the more clearly focused your intention, the more powerfully empowered the prayer is. Take a moment to breathe into this truth.
You can pray fervently for virtually anything or anyone.The caveat is that it has to be without attachment to a specific outcome. All you can pray for at one level, is the most expanded outcome for that soul or situation in that moment. This embodied knowing is the “peace that passes all understanding,” to quote the Christian bible on this matter. Breathe into and feel the peace in your heart.
Prolepsis is the next piece of understanding prayer; “To act as if a future act is already accomplished.” To FEEL how you will feel in a future moment, when that prayer is realized, empowers it to be so NOW. In quantum reality, there is no such thing as time, so we act as if it were already accomplished drawing that outcome toward us now. Bring into your heart, the person, project, animal or situation that you are asking the priest/esses in the Sanctuary to pray about.
Feel your love for this person, etc. filling your heart with deep love. Now allow your prayer to emerge from within you. Take a few moments to crystallize this prayer. Now see the prayer as having already been realized. See the situation as already brought to clarity and resolved.
Make the prayer SPECIFIC. Please name the person, project, animal or situation clearly and concisely, in one or at the most two sentences. (In other words please don’t request general prayers for success or happiness for example). Take time to phrase your prayer as a POSITIVE INTENTION, with the manifestation you desire. (Whilst being unattached to the outcome!)
