I have this little box I keep all my prayer requests in.
If I have offered you prayers and/or blessings, you are in my box.
These medallions were a gift to me from a family of one of my patients when I was still working
at the Children's Hospital. They have a permanent place in my box and I think of that patient every time I open that box.
Keeping my box, holding it in my hands each day, I am certain that I don't forget anyone.
Prayer is important to me.
People count on it and rely on the results.
It is my communication with my God. I know He hears.
I lovingly place my prayers in Your hands, God. I have declared my intentions with a whole heart, and now I release them so You can fulfill them. I recognize that manifestation is a glorious co-creative process in which I do my part and You do Yours. I trust You to take care of what I cannot, and I give up any sense of anxiety, resting secure in the comfort of Your strength. I offer my visions to the magnificent, invisible power that brings forth healing in miraculous ways. I let go and let God.
