How to Pray For Money

how to pray for moneyIf you’re like me, you may have found that sometimes your prayers are answered and other times they aren’t.  Particularly if you pray for money.

So what’s the secret to a successful prayer?

Bear Heart taught me a prayer for money many years ago.  It works.  But you have to be clear that it’s what you want.

Here’s how the teaching came about:  While I was working on The Wind Is My Mother with Bear Heart, I had a full time job in a law firm.

It was a good job, and I liked it, but it didn’t make my heart sing.  Working on The Wind Is My Mother is what made my heart sing.

Being highly observant and more than a little bit psychic, Bear Heart knew I loved the writing process much more than my law firm job.  So he taught me how to pray to be able to make my living as a writer.

The prayer isn’t so much how to pray for money as how to pray to make your living doing what you love.

But here’s the catch: at the time he taught me this, I was not emotionally or mentally ready to leave the security of my steady law firm job.

Nor did I have the confidence to be a writer.  Working on The Wind Is My Mother was a labor of love.   I didn’t know if there was any more writing in me.

So I didn’t do the prayer when he told me about it.  But I have since, so I know it works.

An example of how to pray for money

When Bear Heart first told me about the prayer, he also told me about the results it brought our mutual friend, actress Shelley Morrison.

Shelley had had a successful acting career, dating all the way back to her role as Sister Sixto on The Flying Nun TV series in the 1960s.

But in the 1990s, good roles for Hispanic women were few and far between and she confided to Bear Heart that she was considering giving up acting.

Bear Heart replied, “I don’t know that you need to do that.  Tell me what your ideal role would be.”

Shelley replied she would like to have a good role in a well-written comedy that had a meaningful message, and was filmed before a live audience.

This was on a Sunday night just before Bear Heart and Shelley were about to go into a ceremony.  Bear Heart told her to be very specific in her prayers for that role during the ceremony.

Two days later, on a Tuesday, Shelley’s agent set up an appointment for her with the creators of the “Will & Grace” TV show.  She was hired that day to play the role of Rosario and started work the next day.

Shelley played Rosario on “Will & Grace,” a ground breaking hit show about gays and lesbians, for seven years.

Pretty good answer to her prayer.  And fast, too.

The Prayer

Bear Heart told me that Spirit does not necessarily understand the term “money.”  But Spirit does understand that we have obligations to meet, so that is what we are praying for: to be able to meet our obligations doing work we love.

Once a week, sit at your altar and create a ceremony.   Light a candle and burn cedar, sage or incense.

Say:  “I want to make my living by __________________.    Please give me guidelines, and give me help.”

Be specific as to what you want.  And visualize yourself doing it.

It’s that simple.

It’s actually another example of the Law of Attraction at work.  Focus on what you want, and simply ask.

Consistency is the key.  Do it every week and you will gradually find your situation starting to change.  Your answer may not manifest as fast as it did for Shelley, but you will get an answer.

And be sure to say, “thank you.”

Gratitude is the part of prayer many people leave out.  But why should Spirit give us more if we don’t show our appreciation for what we have.

If your prayer isn’t answered

If you don’t find yourself accomplishing the goal, there are three possible reasons undermining you.

  1. You have inner conflict as to whether or not you want it.  For example, you want to own your own business but want lots of free time.  The two don’t always go together.
  2. You don’t believe you deserve it.  I’ll write more about this in a future post.
  3. You don’t really want it; perhaps it’s someone else’s goal for you. 

Its important to be clear that YOU want the outcome you are praying for.  Clarity leads to power.

Give this a try for something you sincerely want.  Let me know how it goes.

    This message has arrived with perfect timing. I am not happy at my current job, pay is great but the hours are long and the stress level is above the high level and a long commute

    I just saw a job opening here in town with normal hours and in a job field I am comfortable with. The pay is half of what I make now, but the other positives will make up for that, your information has given me guidance with this decision

      Dear Maliga: Sorry it took me so long to reply; your comment slipped by me! One thing that is helpful is to focus on what you want to attract into your life, and not focus on what is not working. Visualize good luck coming to you in every way. Good luck!
