Affirmative Prayer

| with Rev. Beverly Molander | Monday at Noon CT
Affirmative Prayer

Program Overview

Activating the Power of YES means putting our hearts, minds, and voices behind the highest and best intentions of what we want—for ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities. Whatever we think, say, or do becomes a prayer to the universe, so learn to use this power wisely! Join Rev. Beverly Molander for Affirmative Prayer: Activating the Power of YES as she chats with a wide variety of well-known and respected guests from around the world to find out how they activated their own Power of YES—in relationships, health, prosperity, creative self-expression, or with organizations that make a positive impact. Instead of saying, “No, I don’t want that,” you’ll be saying, “Yes, yes, yes, that’s the kind of life and world I want!” Beverly or a guest says an affirmative prayer in the last show segment so you can learn how to use this valuable tool in your own life.
