"Change your MIND, change your LIFE"

Family and friends of UP Church,

May the words of today’s prayer keep you lifted and focused on the Truth.

Be blessed,

Rev. Sherri James

Senior Minister

Father/Mother God,

I give thanks that there is a perfect law of Mind, and that I am able to use it. You respond to me as I respond to You. I now turn to You, the God within me, and affirm Your presence.

I know that every true desire of my heart is being established unto me today. I place these desires in the law of good, and rejoice that its perfect action is now taking place in me, around me, and through me. All this day I remind myself that my demonstrations already are made.

I give in advance for the answers to my prayers. My whole being is open and receptive to that good which is now arriving on my doorstep. I rest in the law and meditate upon its accuracy.

Thanks God. Amen.

Family and friends of UP Church,

I want to extend to you a heartfelt invitation to join us for Palm Sunday. It will be a beautiful celebration. The sermon title is “Power to Overcome Fear.”

Be inspired,

Rev. Sherri James

Senior Minister

Father/Mother God,

All of You is available to every person. No part of You is ever withheld from a sincere seeker of Truth. You release all of Your ideas to every receptive  heart. I now receive ideas direct from You, and I incorporate them into my mind and express them.

Your ideas fill my mind, and there is no room for any wrong thoughts. I claim my health, my prosperity and my full self-expression. As I make these claims, You supply everything I need to fulfill them. All power is given unto me to demonstrate the desires of my heart.

What every great spiritual teacher did, I can now do. The same ideas which inspired them, inspire me. You give of Yourself with lavish abundance, and I rejoice to receive Your ideas now. Thank You God.

Amen.

Family and friends of UP Church,

May the harmony of God find you and abide within you.

Be peace,

Rev. Sherri James

Senior Minister

Father/Mother God,

I recognize that harmony is the automatic action of You, and in me this action now manifests. Your universe is order, harmony, and peace. Despite my present affairs, I now acknowledge this, and act from this premise.

If the sun fails to shine, the tide to rise and fall in the sea, then neither can my few matters be disturbed nor upset. Your universal law of order is now in me, through me and around me. It is my peace of mind; it is the order in all things I do. Having this peace, I now share it with others.

My whole mental atmosphere is radiant with peace. My home, my office, and my entire environment are bathed in it. This peace, born of You, is infectious and my fellowman receives it.

Thanks God. I accept Your harmony and order in my life right now. Amen.

Family and friends of UP Church,

A mighty new wind is blowing! We invite you to join us at UP Church on Sundays for a powerful worship experience. Palm Sunday is March 29th. Join us for worship, food and fellowship. It will be a remarkable day!

Be blessed,

Rev. Sherri James

Senior Minister

Father/Mother God,

Your will is that I should be perfect. No longer do I think with reluctance that Your will may mean my failure to demonstrate what I want. I know that all of You is for me, and all of You moves through me. What I decide will happen, as long as it is good and will harm no other person. There is a divine purpose for my life.

My creation was not an accident. It was the fulfillment of a plan and a design. You can only know a perfect idea, and Your will for me is a perfect life here and now. Letting go of all visible evidence to the contrary, I accept this. Your will is done in me, and the world is richer because I am.

Your will moves in me to accomplish my heart’s desire. Without stint it offers me the full expression of life. To me it gives every hope, every vision, and every right desire. Out of the abundance of love it merely asks that I accept life and use it aright. Letting Your divine design control my thinking, I find the good of the world at my hand. I am able to clasp that which I see, and experience that which I have wanted.

Your will for me is wonderful and I glory in it. As I evolve spiritually, the whole human family benefits. Thanks God. Amen.

Family and friends of UP Church,

Thank you for your continual support for this ministry. We love and appreciate you. May the words of today’s prayer be helpful to you.

Be blessed,

Rev. Sherri James

Senior Minister

Father/Mother God,

I thank You for every blessing. Thank You for believing in me and trusting me to do Your will. Thank You for endowing me with the strength to accomplish all good things. I recognize You as my Source and my Supply in all things.

I rejoice in today for I know it contains the seeds of my tomorrow and I, for sure, want to plant joy for my tomorrow. I bless my thoughts today. Let them be pleasing in your sight Father. Let them reflect the fullness of all that I have learned spiritually. May I always speak with mindfulness, taking care to make sure that each word is what I want created in my tomorrow.

Thank You for helping me to center my concentration on You – to cut out all distractions and trust only the power of God within me.

Thank You God for answered prayer. I can feel the changes happening in me because of this time we’ve had together. amen.

Family and friends of UP Church,

We want to invite you to join us Sunday for a dynamic service. Rev. Sheree will be preaching on Step 8: Choose Love from the book 12 Steps to Your Healing. All are welcome.

Be blessed,

Rev. Sherri James

Senior Minister

Spirit,

Today, I affirm that I am one with You, one with the outpouring of Your divine life. I am governed by Your perfect law of the inward man, made in the image and likeness of that which is pure, whole, and perfect. My whole life finds its impulsion in love and all my actions are governed by the law of good.

As I meditate upon Your perfect law of good, I realize that it is operating in my affairs, in my body, in my mind, and in my spirit. I know that the law of good is absolute; it is complete; it is operating in and through me now, bringing about everything that is good, everything that is right, everything that is happy. And since the law must be perfect as well as exact, and since it must know how to bring everything that is necessary to my good, I place my whole trust in it.

And, so I say today, and every day: The perfect law of good is governing everything I think or do and all my relationships with others. I delight in this law and I delight in the divinity within myself and all people.

Amen.

Family and friends of UP Church,

May your week get even sweeter as the days tick by. Give your all and watch the Father return even more to you.

Be blessed,

Rev. Sherri James

Senior Minister

Father/Mother God,

Thank You for revealing to me the power of forgiveness. I have not always understood it, but I see now that forgiveness is the key to living a health, happy, and prosperous life. My elder brother and way shower Jesus demonstrated that forgiveness gave him mastery, authority, and dominion in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

He told me that I too could do the same. So I choose, right now, to release those whom I bound to me by my refusal to forgive. I rejoice in the liberating knowledge that forgiving releases me; releases me to move on to bigger and better experiences.

I forgive myself and I release me from the bondage of guilt. Your grace allows me to begin again. I can no longer afford to stand in the way of the greatness You have prepared for me. I forgive and I am free.

Thank You Father/Mother God for the liberating power of forgiveness. And so it is.

[Excerpted from Rev. Mary Tumpkin’s “Before You Pray – Forgive“]
