While praying sincerely, we still may fall into temptation. We form ideas as to what we think God's will is for other people. We say to ourselves, "This one ought to be cured of his malady" or "That one ought to be relieved of his emotional pain," and we pray for these specific things.

Such prayers, of course, are fundamentally good acts, but often they are based upon a supposition that we know God's will for the person for whom we pray. This means that side by side with an earnest prayer there can be a certain amount of presumption and conceit in us.

It is my experience that particularly in these cases we ought to pray that Gods's will, whatever it is, be done for others as well as for ourselves.

Let us talk to God and first know ourselves. Take time daily to commune with your God. Then and only then can we be in a position to help others.

. Your affirmation: " I am one with the universe and I can make a difference in the outcome of outwardly circumstances. Everyday I am one step closer to God."

Have a Blessed Day.
