As I did my chores, I settled in to watch The Dr. Oz show. I will admit it...I am a sucker for this program. I love learning new ways to take care of my
The difference I found in the prayers of these faithful women and the great reminder that I received while watching this episode was not that there were miracles performed - this I believe happens all the time - but that the speech the patients used for healing was driven by gratitude. I tend to say something akin to, "Lord, please give me the strength to endure this pain/problem/injury. Please take it away as you see fit." Instead, the patients on this episode - and thousands upon thousands, if not millions like them - pray, "Thank you for taking this away Lord. Thank you for healing me. Thank you for making my body whole so that I can do your will." It's all a matter of communication through intention. I'm begging, not believing. I believe a miracle is possible, so why am I not calling for it?

Since last Friday's Dr. Oz, I realized I have to rephrase my prayer: "Lord, thank you for healing my ears. Thank you for taking away the "noise" so that I can live peacefully in your presence, sharing Your light and love with all I touch. Thank you for helping me find the right help, medical, spiritual, physical or otherwise to take care of this problem. Thank you for leading me down the right path. And thank you for granting me the silence so I can be still and grow nearer to You."
