Creation Prayer received by Ariel Marsh

On arising each day, the words flow through me – – may I walk through this

day in wisdom, understanding, humility and courage as I pray:

I create Good, constantly and consistently on all levels and all dimensions

and to all kingdoms all of the time.

Whether I am awake or asleep I am creating Divine Light, Life, Love and

Good to everyone and everything in the earth and the cosmos.

I am a living Prayer creating the new Heaven and the new earth

within everyone and All That Is. And everyone I come in contact

with is changed to Divine Light and Good.

I am in constant Prayer for all nations and all leaders to be changed

to Divine Light, Life, Love and Good – and the entire cosmos works in

concert to Create more Light and more Good than there was in the


And I create more Light and more Good in the Creator,

and we thank the Divine for making it so. Amen.
