From The Prayer Ministry:
Happy 4th of July. I think 4th of July of my favorite holiday. I love the country we live in, and the people who make up these great United States. As we celebrate our freedom this month, we also celebrate the faculty of Understanding. As we keep freedom alive, we also keep the Spirit of Christ alive each and every day. I hope that your journey so far this year has included prayer.
Understanding is the faculty we celebrate in July. Thomas represents our understanding, the spiritual discernment which we use to know God. We use this spiritual discernment to know and express the highest and best implanted in our human nature. Our scripture for this celebration is:
Scripture: Proverbs 3: 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight
Affirmation: God stands under all that I think, say and do. I stand one with the Spirit in love and peace.
Then prayer for the month: Lord God Infinite Intelligence, renew thy understanding in me. I pray for spiritual discernment and guidance in my life. May this understanding lead me to compassion and peace in my life and the community.
Regardless of where you are in your Spiritual Journey, prayer lifts you higher and empowers you as an instrument of God. Taking the time (and it doesn’t have to be long), to pray keeps you connected. Prayer is abiding in the presence of God-receiving the Christ and sharing your divinity.
Yours in Christ,
Mary E. Biggs, LUT

Spiritual Tools For An Abundant Life – “The 12 Powers of Man” – Using the Powers, One Month at a Time
The Twelve Powers of Man is one of the fundamental teachings of Unity. Our co-founder, Charles Fillmore informs us that the twelve powers represent our subconscious spiritual faculties and are activated as we move from mere personal consciousness to spiritual consciousness and begin to train deeper and larger powers. These powers are activated by focusing our attention within and affirming them into action through the power of our spoken word. Opening and developing these power centers make it easier to enter into and dwell in spiritual consciousness.
