Why a site about prayer?

The purpose of this site is to encourage us to each go deeper in our prayer life. One way that we do that is by praying together. Another way we do that is by praying individually yet collectively on the same prayer themes. Our hope is that as we share prayers and reflect on them and pray over them at the same time in our individual lives, the Holy Spirit will speak to each of us and allow us to encourage and edify one another in prayer.

Alignment of Spirit, Soul and Body

from Sylvia Gunter, Ruach Journey notebook

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, align my spirit, soul and body with you in three-fold alignment in all of my being. Align my left brain and my right brain into its maximum functioning as you designed it to be, so that I can have the mind of Christ.

I choose alignment of my spirit, soul and body with you -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Thank you for aligning my spirit, soul and body with you -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit in three-fold agreement.

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, please give me all that I need moment by moment to live in alignment with you in all that I am.


  1. Every moment of every day, Lord, bring me into alignment with you. Father, Son and Spirit - might I partner with you in alignment and receive your blessings.

  2. This prayer reminded me once again that our relationship with God is ignited by our choice. He chose us first and will never forsake us! I choose moment by moment to ask for relationship aka alignment with him! Lord, thank you for the freedom that you have given me to choose. I choose you, bring all of me into harmony with all of you, now and forever Lord, now and forever!

  3. As You designed, Lord, as you designed! Amen

  4. Align my right brain and my left brain into its maximum functioning! Yes, Lord. It's only when we are aligned as you designed that we can function maximally. Help me to stop settling for less than your maximum best for me. Help me to choose alignment this moment and each moment after this. Amen.

  5. I chose wrong today. Asking for new mercies, thankful for forgiveness. Thank you Lord, bring me back into alignment.

  6. Moment by moment. Choice is ongoing.

  7. Today I prayed the sign of the cross as I prayed for Father, Son and Spirit to be aligned with my spirit, soul, and body. I found this very spontaneous yet compelling -- touching my head, heart and shoulders a second time through when I said spirt, soul and body made it very personal. Spirit as I was touching my head, soul as I was touching my heart, and body as I touched both shoulders. I have no idea why I did it, but I just did, and it was very moving.

    1. I like that. Spontaneity in the Spirit!
