The Power of Prayer and use of Affirmations for Healing beyond the Cure for all that may ail us. (Excerpted from “What I did to Heal Through Cancer, Chemotherapy and Radiation…”

by Maria Celeste Provenzano Cook 

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (Matt. 7:7)

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. (Matt. 21:22)

I believe prayers move mountains.  I asked my churches and all my friends to pray for me then and now, for the power of prayers moves mountains.  Yes, it does.  Expect a miracle.  You are worthy and deserving of the miracle that is you.  God does not make junk.  You are a beautiful being.  You are God’s own miracle.  You have a right to have all you want in your life.  You must believe in miracles to see them.  Believe and know you are a miracle, so expect miracles.  Intend them to happen.  Remember the Law of Intention; thoughts are things.  Think miracles and create them.  You can and you will create miracles, if you just believe and then trust in God.

I pray the rosary almost daily.  I have since my thirties.  It is a lovely form of meditation.  It takes about twenty minutes to recite.  I often do this while soaking in a tub or sitting in front of my GB4000 machine.

No, you do not need to be Roman Catholic to pray the rosary.  Mary wasn’t Catholic.  There are websites and books available to help you learn how to pray the rosary.

Please feel free to use the following prayers or any others you may know.  Reciting prayers, sometimes known as sacred mantras, is a form of internal devotion to Infinite Source, God, Divine Creator, Higher Self.  They have been known to bring about miracles as well as inner peace, calm, and comfort.  All these may aid and assist healing anything that may ail you.

I have a Prayer Warrior group on my personal facebook page (MariaCeleste Provenzano Cook) where people from all over the world come to pray for those whom ask.  You can always PM me to have you request to be posted for the Prayer Warriors to pray for you and yours.

I have the following prayer, or truth, taped to my computer:  Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease. (Hippocrates)

The following prayer is taped to the bathroom mirrors throughout our home.  I said this prayer many times a day during my cancer treatments and still recite it to this day as it is still taped to our mirrors.  I claim feeling and lovingly that the healing Presence and Infinite Intelligence within me is vitalizing, healing, and restoring my whole being into harmony, health, peace, and happiness.  I ask God and Jesus to flow this through me and around me.  I place my attention here.

This prayer is attached to the inside of our refrigerators and pantries:  May this food be blessed and infused with God’s healing, love, and light.  I believe it so and so it is. Amen.


Prayers from Paramahamsa Yogananda:

I will rise with the dawn and rouse my sleeping love to waken in the light of true devotion for the peace-God within.

By realizing God, I shall be reclaimed as His child.  Without asking or begging I shall receive all prosperity, health, and wisdom.

God is within me, around me, protecting me, so I banish the gloom of fear that shuts out His guiding light and makes me stumble into ditches of error.

I wipe away, with the soothing veil of Divine Mother’s peace, the dreams of disease, sadness, and ignorance.

I seek safety, divine safety, first, last, and all the time in the constant underlying thought of God, my greatest Friend and Protector.


The following prayer is in my wallet and has been with me for three years; it is from the Lily Dale Healing Temple, Lily Dale, New York.

I ask the Great Unseen Healing Force to remove all obstructions from my mind and body and to restore me to perfect health.  I ask this in all sincerity and honesty, and I will do my part.

I ask the Great Unseen Healing Force to help both present and absent ones who are in need of help and to restore them to perfect health.

I put my trust in the Love and Power of God.


When feeling off-balance and off-center, I use the following prayer:  Balance align center, ground integrate and attune, focus on The God Center of my soul.


I invite you to use these prayers freely and often as they may serve you in your healing beyond the cure. Prayer is powerful and so are YOU!!!!!


Affirmations ~ Another form of Positive Prayers ~

And the Word was made flesh (John 1:14).

“What the brain believes, the body achieves.” (unknown)

Affirmations are words made flesh.  Affirmations are words that, when spoken aloud, or mentally, help you manifest positive changes in your reality.  Affirmations are positive words repeated frequently to help generate positive outcomes physically, mentally, and emotionally in our lives.  Affirmations are words manifest.  Affirmations are words that change your attitude and your perspective, thus changing your reality.  It is positive reality through positive thinking.  Positive attitudes change your perspective, which change your reality, creating gratitude for the positive in your life.  An attitude of gratitude brings positive changes to your life.  Positive life, positive and grateful attitudes lend themselves to positive health.  A positive attitude will get you through this fight more than anything.  I believe in positive affirmations.  I believe positive affirmations are prayers of the positive highest energy.  I believe affirmations help us manifest our deepest desires in our reality.  I believe affirmations are words made flesh.  I invite you to incorporate affirmations into your daily life.

The following affirmations are recommended for daily use.  Reciting them eight times, three times a day, for at least a twenty-one-day period during treatments and beyond, helps our cells to integrate and believe the affirmation prayed.  Reciting affirmations helps our brain to believe in what we speak.  Thoughts are things.  Thoughts create reality.  Affirmations help us create the reality we wish, dream, and hope for.  Positive affirmations break the cycle of negative thoughts.  We are what we think, so think and speak positive.  Your brain is your strongest muscle.  Use your brain to strengthen your body; for as you think, so your body becomes.  I have used affirmations for years with great results.  Happy thoughts create great, happy days.
