From The Prayer Ministry:
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. The joyous season of Christmas is upon us! As we share wonderful times with friends and family, let us take time to remember the reason for the season – the Christ within each and every one of us expressing our highest nature and greatest good. Our gift to the world at this beautiful Christmas time is the love we have and share with each other.
December is the month where we honor the faculty of Life. This is the executive power that enables us to keep breathing. This is our time to celebrate the life of Christ within ourselves as well as that in our neighbor. Gift giving is the tradition of this time, so let us give each the gift of life in a positive, affirmative loving way. The scripture for the month is
Scripture: The Shepherds and the Angels Luke2:8-14
8 In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: 11 to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, [a] the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, [b] praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”[
Affirmation: I praise my life, and I praise the life of Christ within me.
Then prayer for the month: Infinite Spirit I pray that you receive my joyful prayer for all at this time of Christmas. May your Christmas blessing be upon all of our community this month as we celebrate and honor the birth of your Son, Jesus Christ?
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.
