Prosperity Prayer Week 4: Learn from Nature

July 17, 2011

Today is week four of our 8-week exploration of Lynn Robinson’s Prosperity Prayer. I encourage you to say this prayer out loud, daily, for as long as it takes to truly internalize it. Use these posts as a way to create powerful visualizations of this inspired prayer.

Dear God —

I surrender my financial affairs and concerns about money to your Divine care and love.

I ask that you remove my worries, anxieties and fears about money, and replace them with faith.

I know and trust that my debts will be paid and money will flow into my life.

I have only to look to nature to see proof of the abundance you provide.

This is my favorite line in the prayer, and the one that has the most power for me. Because just in case you were unable to truly have 100% faith, to truly know and trust that money would flow into your life, now look outside, look to nature, and see what you see.

Every year, without fail, the green returns. The plants grow larger every day. And the beauty! It is so magnificent, what is created.

I am a biologist, so I do know quite a bit about the science behind how this spectacle happens. And even knowing the science, or perhaps because I know the science, I am even more amazed at the wonder of it.

We start with sunlight, and from that the plants actually capture energy and turn that energy into something of beauty. This happens every day, all around us.

As I write this post, I have two windows. Out one of them I see magnificent Buffalo Mountain, capped with snow, its lower slopes covered with spruce, pine, and aspen, all beautifully green. I know that even if I were to climb to its top, that the area that looks like rock from here would be covered with delicate, spectactular alpine wildflowers. From the other window I see the 10-Mile Range of mountains. I see places where avalanches took out everything in their path, and now the trees and greenery are growing back.

The trees and plants just regrow, all on their own. We don’t have to worry about this. We don’t need to be afraid about whether the trees will return after an avalanche or a fire or whatever other change happens to them. The forest keeps growing back.

And you don’t have to be afraid, either. You need never feel that money cannot come to you, that there is not enough for you. There is enough.

You have only to look to nature to see proof of the abundance that the Universe provides.

As you say the Prosperity Prayer this week, pause at this line, and give yourself a moment to take in what you are being shown by the abundance of nature. Then each time you see a plant, a tree, a bird, a rock – know that you are being given a message directly from the Divine. There is enough. There is more than enough. It will be provided.

May your day be filled with blessings as you and Money discover each other anew.
