​ ​Our June 2024 theme is Protection

Protection

Prayer: I am conscious of the transforming and loving presence of God within myself and with all beings. I have said YES and am attuned with the Divine Source which casts out error thoughts, providing protection from old tendencies toward erroneous thinking. The spirit of God ever enfolds and protects me. My thoughts, words, and actions create space for peace, harmony, and love to freely flow. I experience peace at the very core of my being. I am grateful.

Affirmation: The Spirit of God ever enfolds and protects me.

Scripture: "My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." Exodus 33:14
