Practice this prayer effectively...read Mastering the Self In doing the seven steps of Effective Prayer, it should be remembered, when we say "I release ..." or "I radiate ..." that this "I" is the "I" of the Divine within us. It is not so much something that we are doing but rather something that we are allowing the Divine to manifest and do through us. This "I" is what Jesus spoke of when he said "I of myself can do nothing.  It is the Father within that doeth the works".  This "I" then is sacred and holy - the Father within.  It is something that we open up to.  Realize and allow this "I", the Divinity within you, to say "I release ..." and "I radiate ..." and your prayers will no longer be a thing of mental effort or striving; rather will they be an expression of spiritual being - Joy and Peace and effortless effort.
