Prayer Chaplain Corner

Greetings from your Prayer Chaplain Team.

“See a penny, pick it up. All-day long, you’ll have good luck.” Do you pick up the pennies you find? I do! My grandmother, who was a bit superstitious, taught me that saying when I was a child and I’ve been doing it my whole life. When I find a penny, I carry it around in my pocket all day and feel extra lucky.

 

Some people say money contains invisible energy passed between the previous owner and the next person who finds it. Older coins are more powerful because many different people have held them. If you find an old penny on the ground, you gain even more luck and energy. Believe it or not, I have personally manifested this energy. I am a distance runner. Occasionally on long training runs, I find a penny. I suddenly feel less tired and my feet are lighter. I finish the run feeling strong.

 

A friend of mine whose partner passed away a few years ago believes that every coin she finds is a gift from him. She says he is reminding her that they are still connected and it comforts her.

 

I recently learned the best reason of all to pick up those pennies, or in fact any coin that you find. The face of every U.S. coin is inscribed with “IN GOD WE TRUST”. It’s a tool or a reminder to let go and let God. Say a prayer. Chant an affirmation. Sing a song:

 

I am thankful!  So grateful!  I am one with the Spirit all around me!

I am thankful!  So grateful!  I TRUST IN GOD!

 

That little coin not only lightens your feet; it lightens your soul. I propose that we change the opening rhyme to: “See a penny, pick it up. All is well because in God I trust.”

 

May your path be strewn with pennies!
