Prayers for Relaxation and Rest
Spiritual Relaxation Techniques

...Prayers for Relaxation and Rest continues from 10 Tips for Finding Peace

Spirituality tells us that somehow we are already at rest.

Spiritual relaxation techniques such as prayers for relaxation help the blocks to our awareness of God's rest to melt away.



Spiritual Rest - The Peace That Passes Understanding

Rest is intrinsic to our nature.
Rest is what we are and where we are in God.

Believe me, I know it can feel hard to believe this.
I found myself stuck in an ill body for 14 years. My body felt in a constant state of activity - the muscles flicking, the feelings of illness churning.
Nonetheless, I had moments of the joy of this peace that passes understanding.

(A Prayer For the Stressed)

Dear Love,

Please help me to rest.

I place my list of things to do in your hands.
Just for a moment, I let it go.

I place any thoughts about how things should be different in your hands.
Just for a moment, I let them go.

I place any thoughts about how someone else should be different in your hands.
Just for a moment, I let them go.

I place any thoughts about how I should be different in your hands.
Just for a moment, I let them go.

Right now, just for a moment,
I allow things to be as they are,
I allow someone else to be as they are,
I allow myself to be as I am,
And so I rest.

AMEN



Dear God,

You promise us the peace that passeth understanding;
a peace that we can touch whatever our circumstances.

Dear God, I ask to touch that peace now.
I make space for it now.

Please come into my heart and let me know your peace.

I know that this prayer is heard.
My words are important.
My willingness is important.

I am doing the important task of preparing a path in my mind through which your peace is becoming a reality in my life.
I receive your thanks for doing this work.

Thank you God for the peace that is always here.
This changeless Peace.
This Peace that holds all things within it.
I allow myself to be held in this place of Peace.

I relax in the arms of your Love.

Thank you.

Amen

Below is an image of one of the prayers for relaxation you can read on the page above:

prayer for relaxation

This wonderful prayer is from ACIM. It slows me down in a good way and very much deserves to be included among these prayers for relaxation.


ACIM prayer for relaxation

My heart is beating in the peace of God.

Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love.  

It calls to me in every heartbeat and in every breath;
in every action and in every thought.  
Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness. 

Now my mind is healed, and all I need to save the world is given me.  

Each heartbeat brings me peace;

each breath infuses me with strength.  

I am a messenger of God, directed by His Voice,
sustained by Him in love,
and held forever quiet and at peace within His loving Arms.  

Each heartbeat calls His Name, and every one is answered by His Voice,
assuring me I am at home in Him.

W-287, A Course In Miracles Quote

It's a beautiful ACIM prayer in which many of the lines serve as powerful meditation mantras.Try closing your eyes and repeating this one .

Each heartbeat brings me peace;
Each heartbeat brings me peace;
Each heartbeat brings me peace;

Each heartbeat brings me peace;
Each heartbeat brings me peace;

Each heartbeat brings me peace;
Each heartbeat brings me peace;

This one too.

each breath infuses me with strength
each breath infuses me with strength
each breath infuses me with strength
each breath infuses me with strength
each breath infuses me with strength
each breath infuses me with strength
