Expand your purposes for prayer. Prayer is not merely a tool we use in hopes of defending ourselves from harm, avoiding suffering, and attracting good into our lives. Prayer is much bigger. Prayer is aligning with Love's activity, which serves all of creation. Today in your prayers, expand your perspective and goals. Feel Love's presence. Ask to participate in Love's activities, to humbly be Love's witness and worker in the world.
