Daily Prayers are an important part of our spiritual practice. When we pray we are talking to God while meditation is listening to God. Daily prayers help us to honor our spirit by consciously aligning with the Source within us through the direct communication of prayer.

There are many ways to pray. Daily prayers can include repeating a standard prayer that you are familiar with, creating a new prayer or simply talking to God in your own words. Prayers can be said in the morning as a positive way to start your day. Evening prayers help to end the day in communion with spirit, allowing us to sleep more peacefully.

In my daily prayers I use a combination of standard prayers that I learned as a child, creating a new prayer and speaking directly to Source. Naming my family, my friends, all of humanity and Mother Earth in my prayers and putting them all in God's hands allows me to continue to let go. As a result my energy is freed to be more present in my life in a more powerful way.

Daily prayers are affirmations to God asking for help with Divine creating on a daily basis. We are not alone. The Universe is for us in every way. Prayers direct Spirit to what we need help with in our life. Then we feel more supported in letting go and letting God be in charge of all our affairs.


Surrendering my control and allowing the Universe to work in my life is what is involved in daily prayers. When I let go and allow God to have control in my life I am letting go of limiting beliefs as well. All beliefs are limiting.

Admitting my powerlessness is part of the process of surrendering to my Higher Power. It is very humbling to admit one's powerlessness. The truth is we are powerless over everyone and everything in our lives. We can only control our own thoughts, attitudes and behaviors. The sooner we realize this truth the sooner we have freedom from taking on other people's problems that we cannot solve in the first place.

When we acknowledge our powerlessness and practice surrendering to Spirit we are set free to live fully in the moment. We can then trust that God is taking care of us and guiding us to what is best for us on all levels. Spirit is also taking care of our loved ones. We are not meant to carry others and their problems or to sacrifice ourselves. They have the same

opportunity to practice surrendering to the Divine and to ask for help through prayer.

Add an Image

Add an image when you pray to help you experience the power of prayer that the image represents. Be creative with this process and enjoy it.

For example I add an image by visualizing all my loved ones on an altar to the Divine. This visual helps me to let go and let God take care of them. As a result I can be more present in my own life rather than trying to help others who can only help themselves. When I begin to worry again I just have to focus on the image of the altar and let go once more.

When I add an image to my prayers it adds energy to the intention of the daily prayers. Then the image is empowered in my consciousness and anchored there. This allows me to continue to surrender to Source and live in the moment.

Everyone has their own Higher Power. My job is to surrender to my Higher Power through the intention of my daily prayers. This allows me to live the expression of my spirit in the material world each and every day.

The Morning Prayer

Good morning this is God.

I will be handling all your problems today.

I do not need your help.

Have a good day.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change,

Courage to change the things I can,

And the wisdom to know the difference.

The Reiki Principles

Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.

Just for today I will not be angry.

Just for today I will do my work honestly.

Just for today I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.

Author's Bio: 

Maureen Brennan Mercier has been a Metaphysician for over 27 years and has helped many people in all areas of their lives. While taking a meditation class in the summer of 1983, Maureen discovered her gift of channeling and began her spiritual journey.

Maureen's new found connection with her higher power helped her through the tragic death of her husband only weeks later.

Raising two children alone and overcoming other challenges throughout her life has given Maureen more strength, compassion and emotional intelligence. Her love of people and her great passion for life continually inspire her work.

Meditation Classes

Maureen teaches meditation classes using simple guided imagery and channels spiritual guidance for the group, which is uplifting. Each person is able to ask a personal question at the end of the meditation and receive specific spiritual guidance for their life journey. The energy during the meditation is very loving, compassionate and nurturing which is healing in itself.

Intuitive Readings & Spiritual Guidance

Intuitive Readings are based on the client's questions about relationships, career issues, emotional issues, health issues, attitudes and beliefs, loved ones who have passed on and more. Maureen goes into a meditative state where she accesses specific guidance in answer to the questions being asked. The channeled information she receives during and intuitive reading is spiritual, yet very practical. After a reading with Maureen, individuals feel more relaxed, reassured and more positive about their lives.

Reiki Training & Reiki Healing

In September 1992 Maureen received her first degree Reiki training. After years of practicing Reiki healing in small groups, workshops, centers, and retreats throughout the United States, Maureen received her second degree Reiki and Reiki Master Degree in August 1999.


Maureen is extremely grateful for the gifts of healing she has received over the years and is committed to being a channel of LOVE, GUIDANCE and HEALING. Her life's work is about assisting individuals with their healing, spiritual growth and the remembrance of who they truly are - DIVINE.
