While I was engaging in my practice with Saint Cyprian tonight, the message I received was to share some of my directly Christian workings that I use, or have used and found effective. I should share 1 such working for every nine days. Since I am already one day behind, I will post two today to make up for it.
This was honest to goodness one of the first wildly successful workings I did when I was in my twenties and it is very simple.
If you have lost something, just pray the Lord’s prayer. Do it three times. Whatever is lost will be restored to you.
I had lost a ring that I loved. I don’t know how I lost it, it just wasn’t on my finger and I couldn’t find it anywhere. After a lot of stress and strain, I stopped and I just prayed and the only prayer I could think of was the Lord’s prayer. I repeated it three times, and I just felt this lightness and calm assurance come over me. About an hour later, I was walking to a meeting and in the middle of this footpath, with no one else around, there was my ring. This was not a frequently used footpath and it had easily been a week since the last time I had walked there, and I had my ring then.
On another occasion I had lost my wallet. I can only guess it had fallen out of my pocket when I was exiting a taxi. So, I remembered the ring, and I prayed. I didn’t find the wallet but when I returned home from this trip, I had an email from a man who had found my wallet on the street, picked it up, and I happened to have a business card with my email address in it. So, he emailed me, this man ended up mailing me the wallet, with all my cards, ID and everything untouched and intact.
I had a friend who would lose stuff constantly. Every time we hung out, he would lose stuff. We would search my car, my home, retrace our steps, nothing. Finally, I would stop and pray, and somehow, inexplicably his missing items would suddenly appear in this very obvious back door pocket on my passenger side. He never sat in the back seat, and there was no way, it could have fallen from his pocket and landed in the back door pocket. But every time, on multiple occasions, what was missing would be there, even if we searched it before, but once I prayed, it showed up.
So, that’s my story. If you’re missing something and it is lost, pray the Lord’s Prayer three times. You will find it.
