November 25, 2011—Nicholas William Cann Day!

Today we come together to focus our attention on a beloved Prayer Registry child, Nicholas William Cann who passed on November 25, 2009.


Dear Prayer Giver,


Take a moment to sit down and bring all of your awareness into this sacred present moment. Allow your thoughts and cares of the day slip away from you now as you enter the present moment completely. Slowly take in a deep breath and slowly let the breath out; breathing in deeply and exhaling fully. And again, inhale slowly and exhale thoroughly.


As you read these words, take the time to really feel and think about what you are saying, for this is indeed a sacred moment.


Dear Nicholas, We The Prayer Team, are with you now in thought and spirit. We send you energy and love from our souls to yours and we pray that you will feel it and know how very loved you are.


Meditation/Visualization: —continue to sit comfortably and allow yourself to be here in the present moment, letting go of your cares and worries of the day.


Now, bring all of your attention to the tip of your nose and imagine that you are the gatekeeper at the gates of a big city and that it is your very important job to watch the coming and the going of your breath.  Simply focus all your concentration at the tip of your nose and observe your breath as it enters and leaves you.


As you breathe-in, focus on the feeling of the breath as it enters your nostrils

As you breathe-out, focus on the feeling of the breath as it leaves your nostrils

Breathing-in feel the breath coming into you

Breathing-out feel the breath as it leaves you.


Continue to focus on your breathing

If your mind wanders away going off into thought (which is common in meditation) gently bring your focus back to the tip of your nose and resume your position as gatekeeper, watching the coming and going of your breath.


As you breathe-in feel the cool air as it enters your nostrils

As you breathe-out feel the warm air as it leaves your nostrils

Breathing-in cool, breathing-out warm

Breathing-in cool, breathing-out warm

In cool, out warm…in cool, out warm.


Now as you breathe-in, envision Nicholas

standing in the light before you

As you breathe-out, envision Nicholas looking vibrant and well



As you inhale, envision drawing energy into you

As you exhale envision directing that energy to Nicholas

As you inhale continue to visualize energy entering into you

As you exhale see this energy flowing outward from you and surrounding Nicholas

Bathing him in light and loving energy

See him surrounded by energy

See him smiling

See him laughing

See that he is happy and free.


As you breathe-in feel that you are strengthened by this energy

As you breathe-out direct this feeling of strength to Nicholas’s family

As you breathe-in draw peace into yourself

As you exhale send that feeling of peace to Nicholas’s family.


Dear Nicholas, We all see you smiling and glowing in the light. May you know that LOVE, the one universal sustaining force, is being sent to you right now and always will be. May you feel it and know that love is without end. You will always be loved and you will always be remembered.  Love to you dear one. Peace be with you Nicholas. We love you, The Prayer Team.

    Nicholas, may complete awareness of God’s infinite love and mercy be your in this very moment.

    May the same awareness be with each and every member of your family and friends who love and miss you.

    Dearest Nicholas and your Precious Family,
    We send much Love and Light to you as well as Comfort and Peace to those who are missing you. May your Spiritual heart beat in time with the Earthly hearts who grieve and remind them of how close you are STILL. From our hearts to yours and to All the Precious Prayer Registry Children,

  15. Heavenly Father,
    I humbly come to you and pray that you will wrap the family, friends and community of Nicholas in a blanket of comfort as they reflect on the precious life you created and gave eternal life. As a mother who has lost a son, I understand their loss and I pray they will find peace knowing that this child of God is sitting at the feet of Jesus listening intently as he has all of his questions answered. I pray that the heavenly trumpets are playing a special song for him and the streets paved with gold lead him on beautiful, heavenly journeys. I pray the family will turn to you in their grief and allow you to carry them through these difficult days where they miss their precious child. I pray all these things in your heavenly name. Amen.
