I am prepared for life's blessings.

In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus took time for prayer, contemplation and conversation with God. This example of Jesus struggling to accept the path before him has inspired humanity through the ages.

Just as Jesus prepared himself for his final ordeal and ultimate triumph, I prepare myself for challenges with prayer. I affirm the aspects of my personal and spiritual nature that I want to express more fully. At the same time, I am fearless in examining the ways I do not yet apply those qualities in daily life.

By staying "prayed up," I make wise choices in all that I think, say and do. Every challenge becomes an opportunity for new growth and transformation, and every blessing becomes a lesson in the power of prayer.

He said to his disciples, "Sit here while I go over there and pray."--Matthew 26:36
