pray? Why not? Prayers
prayer cannot be is a petition
requesting something of God who has already given us.(*).all
things that pertain to life. Since the book of Psalms is replete with prayers
and psalms are scripture and scripture has been fulfilled, our understanding
must include the fulfilled nature of such prayer."....Mike
"The way we have grown to
understand prayer in the religious tradition is asking God to grant us
something that we do not already have. Emmanuel's form of prayer
was the contrary of that, requiring us to 'believe
it is already yours'."....Miceal

Emmanuel's words here were
said to the disciples:.Mark

What is prayer? Prayer comes
from a person's desire to get help on something. Some people are inept
at finances and some are inept socially.
Whatever the lack, they turn to God for help and God always helps:.James
1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all
men liberally and upbraides not and it shall be given him." Matthew
7:7,8 "Ask and it shall be given you. Seek and you shall find. Knock
and it shall be opened unto you, for every one that asks receives and he
that seeks finds and to him that knocks it shall be opened." Matthew
6:8 "...your Father knows what things you have need of, before you
So, one's prayer then is more of a thankful acceptance of, a focusing
of one's mind upon the surety
of what it is you want that is good.
Ask for that which you are
sure your character can handle! Your desire for it is your prayer. Prayer
is also something concerning you that you talk to God about with a knowing
what you want and/or need is a sure reality for you. So, you focus your
mind on it and your desire for it is attached to your attention on it at
the time. Here your job is to keep your mind on good things and
away from the negative things you do not want.

Prayer is one's loving intent.
Prayer is communion
with the Great Infinite One and that is giving time to this Great Being
we call God, in sharing your thoughts and feelings, in just listening,
in realizing that indeed, He cares to have you in His presence. Prayer
is also wishing to the advantage of both yourself and others.(*).
Prayer is really love, once one understands
love is. "When you pay attention to some
object, your consciousness is on this object and you have a connection
with it and the object possesses a certain degree of your attention and
a certain volume of your knowledge. The object in turn transfers to other
elements of the reality, a part of information received from you and something
from your state, similar to how the light from the Sun shining on various
objects is partially reflected from them and it lights some other objects."....Grigori
"My Mother had taught me
to seek all truth in the Bible".he
wrote regarding his inventive prowess.."The
gift of mental power comes from God, Divine Being and if we concentrate
our minds on that truth we become
in tune with this great power."....Nikola
A guideline for our praying
is the famous Lord's Prayer:.Matthew
Prayer is having God's
attention by talking about what you want to talk to Him about.(one
by listening for answers that well
up in the mind, immediately or that will pop into your mind later when
you are quiet; maybe within a few days or weeks, as in Daniel's case.(so
it is important to take regular times
the dark and the quiet), before
the angel could get to him with a response from God to his asking:.Daniel
10:12-14 "Then said he unto me, fear not, Daniel, for from the first
day that you did set thine
heart to understand and to chasten.(humble
so as to correct the self).yourself
before your God, your words were heard and I am come for thy words.
But the prince of the kingdom of Persia.(was
not a person).withstood
me one and twenty days, but, lo, Michael,
one of the chief princes, came to help me and I remained there with the
kings of Persia. Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall
thy people in the latter days, for yet the vision is for many days."
Prayer means in the original
'to wish to the advantage of', 'to bind'.(that
is, we set the mind on it as a completed reality:.Hebrews
11:1,6), 'a request', 'to want
something', 'to be seeking', 'to ask', 'to say', 'to search', 'to fall
in with', 'childlike confidence toward', 'to obtain with', 'meet with',
'come together', 'to visit', 'converse', 'intercede':.Job
When we pray for ourselves
and/or another, we must realize that the Creator or the Intelligent Infinite,
the All Knowing, the Ever Present, the Conscious Intelligence, the Creator
and the Sustainer of all the Energy of the universe from which all we see
and know has come out of, has given us some 'secrets'.(Deuteronomy
29:29); secrets to do with laws
of the universe He has designed and set in motion; laws we can use to effectively
pray; laws like the law of attention and the law of intention.
So, what is prayer? Prayer
is talking to and/or asking
7:7), the Great Infinite Intelligence
who dwells in the invisible.inside
1:15; 1Timothy 1:17; Hebrews
11:27. It is saturating your subconscious with what is your present
concern and this is simply done by attention, for what your attention may
be on is your prayer, something you want for self or another or others:.Micah
7:7 "...My God hears me."
be fussy about prayer.
So herein is meditation,
which is sustained
directed thinking. Like listening to music you like; you have directed
yourself to listen to it and you keep listening because of the benefit
you get from it. Some music is very 'soulful', that is, it touches your
heart deeply and this is good. Music can be very healing.
With a connection to your
your thoughts for self and others will produce fruit:.Isaiah
55:10,11 "...the rain comes down and the snow from heaven and waters
the earth and makes it bring forth and bud...So shall my word be that goes
forth out of my mouth. It shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish
that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.".Your
connection depends on alignment
with what the Soul is capable
of for you and this is according
to one's faith.
In the original New Testament,
the words 'pray' and 'prayer' means 'to wish to the advantage of', 'before'.
One prays before he has what he wishes for. In the Old Testament it means
to 'ask for an intervention'.
It's different in the New because in Christ are all
the promises and sometimes we need Creator to intervene in our lives.
But what if there is no intervention
from God? Paul did many miracles, but what
happened when he wanted something?
If God hears prayers for
then is there often no answer?
doesn't God provide a blessing to ourselves or to others when we ask
and when it's needed so much?
Prayers are often answered
ways we didn't expect and sometimes not at all, as in the case of little
Prayer is your intentions
once in higher
consciousness, your motivations that is you each day, the thing
your attention is mostly on:.John
11:42. Words are thoughts. Thoughts having to do with spiritual concerns,
thoughts having intention of reaching the Infinite One, are called prayer.
Once in higher consciousness
you are in the same consciousness that
is God and your intentions here are the intentions of God. Why?
In higher consciousness
means, being in Christ.
If Christ is spirit, if Christ
is in us, then, how is He coming again in a second coming outside us
as many in religion assume?.Hebrews
But, is there a time when
God, Christ and all
the others in this other dimension, will be on Earth?
If He's inside us and said
He would never leave us.(Hebrews
13:5 "...for he has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you."),
He's not going to leave us to come outside us, is He? Therefore, if He's
to come visibly, He must be.in.this
great consciousness which includes Him, the Father, the whole family of
spirit beings and us too:.Ephesians
1:23; 1Corinthians 12:6;
The key is,.all
is spirit and there is no 'outside', no 'inside'. There is just intention
17:21; Matthew 24:23. To those
of a higher consciousness, He's here now as this verse.(1Corinthians
conviction of the heart shows, a conviction where one is guided in all
into the things of a higher consciousness.(?).and
away from ego consciousness.(*).
There is a
notable coming to Earth of all in the
whole family of God, both those passed on and those still on the Earth:
15:28 "And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the
Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that
God may be all in all." Ephesians
1:22,23 "And has put all things under his feet and gave him to be the
head over all the
church. Which is his body, the fulness of him that fills all in all."
To those of the lower consciousness
ego level, they don't care one way or the other, so He has to
appear physically for them: John
3:14-18 "...the Son of man be lifted up.('lifted
up' meaning both, that He was resurrected and what that means for all mankind
and that He is lifted up in one's heart, lifted up beyond the ego level
living of the world we have all had our experiences in; lifted up from
low consciousness to higher consciousness),
that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have
eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn
condemnation for faults), but that
the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned,
but he that believes not is condemned already.(that's
why He came and died for all, so we could be classified
as already being dead),
because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
There is a time coming when
all will see Christ. That won't be a surprise.(1Thessalonians
those who are already in Christ, but will be a surprise for those not in
Christ; but, it's all for good, ultimately.
All of God's purposes are for good even the Old Testament, once
That's why the Creator recommends
to always be in mind of higher consciousness things, being ready always
to do them as you feel moved to do so.(Luke
because what is you, is what you act from, what you think from. And there's
a scripture that recommends to 'pray without ceasing'; now, what
on Earth is that supposed to mean?
Intention is transformation,
which is information in action, the movement of information. Energy can
only be changed into another form of energy. Information is what allows
energy to form out of the stillness into a particular
pattern according to the information known by the
Information comes from the
invisible field through the pathway of the soul and manifests or forms
into physical life. The information is first individualized by the aim,
the purpose, the intention of the person. Your intention creates a thrust
of energy in the stillness, the formative potential.
Energy from the stillness
moves, like a wave forming in a still pond when a pebble is dropped into
it. How does it work?
Intentions are formed from thoughts. All thought occurs in the present.
One's thoughts may be about the past or future, but thought is generated
in the present. When the past and the future become present in your mind.(you
think about them to do something about them; you don't let them rob you
by controlling you and sapping you),
they can be changed.
Thoughts and their effects
can be altered.(how?).because
the patterns of all things are in the invisible, that is, until erased.
Thoughts and what those thoughts have produced are stored in what's been
called the Akashic
record until erased.
Where else can eternity be
accessed from but the present? Eternity involves time and space where patterns
of all things are stored there until erased. Where there is no time and
no space; where there just,
what? Here, besides the present, is also the past and the future as
God knows the future will generally
be, because within the overall framework, we have our input into the mass
mind by what we are, think and do each day. In the Bible this is
the I AM. And the
past can be changed. How? Because all exists at once, one can spiral back
in his mind and easily deal
with the past. The memories that are in the past to us, are in the
present, because energy from there affects us if those memories are still
with us. Negative ones can
be erased. Good ones should be kept.
Beyond time and space is
where the hologram comes from. This
has been called the
'nothingness' for lack of a better word.
Intention, a high consciousness
quality, knows how to create what the intention is:.John
16:24 "...ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full."
Take one or two times a week
to use your meditation time completely
for others by thinking of all whom you know and sending love to each
of them. How? This will help you. When
you take action and do, the ambiguities
Prayer is your request to
the soul to turn you or anyone else you may be concerned over, into something
special. Prayer is a thought. At the ego level, it's a beg, a beg for
something to happen that is unnecessary in higher consciousness, because
at higher consciousness levels one knows for sure that thoughts
become things and prayer even affects
those asleep in life to higher consciousness things and yet awake at
the low consciousness level. It is your best tool for those you may be
"If you wish to understand
the universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration."....Nikola
Tesla. See the movie The
"A prayer's resonant energy
comes most forcefully from heart felt loving
intention to secure some miraculous manifestation of the petitioner. If
you give your faith over to God, then you may call upon the King of the
Universe at any time using prayer or heart felt loving intention, to remedy
any troubling situation." ...Dr. Len Horowitz,
a Google search)
Prayer allows us to see things
through God's eyes, and brings His presence into the situation:.Philippians
2:5 "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Emmanuel." 1John
3:2 (following is as translated;
original is different.-.click
1John 3:2 for original)."Beloved,
now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be.
But we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we'll
see him as he is." Philippians 1:27
"Only let your conversation be as it becomes the gospel of Christ; that
whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs,
that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for
the faith of the gospel." 2Corinthians
8:5 "And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves
to the Lord and unto us by the will of God." 1Corinthians
13:12 "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face.
Now I know in part, but then I'll know even as also I am known."
How to pray. Luke
"One day a man was walking
down the street on his way to work. As he walked down the street, there
were dogs on just about every front porch and they all would bark as the
man walked passed them. However, there was one dog that he remembered,
because this dog was just sitting there and he was whimpering and whining
and moaning, you know the little whimpering sounds dogs make when they
are wounded or in some sort of pain. Well, this particular dog was just
sitting there on the front porch making those sounds. The man was curious
as to why this dog wasn't barking like the other dogs and why he was whimpering.
He couldn't figure it out, so he just kept walking to work. The next day
he was in the same situation where he was walking down the street and saw
the dogs once again and this same dog that was moaning and groaning the
other day was doing the same thing today and he just couldn't figure it
out. Well, he walked passed for an entire week and everyday the dog would
be there moaning and groaning. So finally the guy got fed up, he said "let
me find out what's going on." So he went and knocked on the door and a
guy came out and said "Yes, how may I help you?" He said "Sir, is this
your dog?" "Yes, that's my dog." "Well, what's wrong with him?" The owner
of the dog said "What do you mean?" "Well, he's been sitting here moaning
and groaning, whimpering and whining for an entire week. The rest of the
dogs are barking, your dog should be barking too. Why is he moaning and
groaning?" The owner said, "Well, he's actually sitting on a nail." And
the guy said "What! Your dog is sitting on a nail. Why doesn't he get off?"
"Well, it just doesn't hurt him enough."
"Wow! You know most people
are like that dog sitting on a nail. I mean sure, they would like to get
off the nail, but what if they got off the nail and they died or something?
They never seem to stop to consider that maybe they would be healed, maybe
they would be free, maybe they would be able to move about and discover
some new and exciting options for their lives. But, noooooo. Instead, they
just sit there on that nail because they're not sure what's going to happen
if they get off. I mean, there are no guarantees of safety so to speak.
Even though, it's not the best feeling in the world, sitting on a nail,
I mean, it's not comfortable sitting on a nail, it kind of hurts, but at
least they know what to expect. They know that they have $2000 per week
coming in so they can pay their bills and put food on the table and they
can put some clothes on their back and a roof over their heads. They may
even get upset with you if you question their so called security, I mean,
if you hand them a book or tell them about something out of their current
comfort zone that can give them some effective strategies for getting off
nails, they may resent you for it. Well, hopefully you're different. You
are willing to learn some effective nail removing strategies that could
set you free because you and I both know that there is no such thing as
security. Well, maybe I should take that back. I do know of a place where
security exists on this planet. It's called the graveyard. And you know
what, most people tip toe through life so that they can arrive at the graveyard
safely. Of course this will not be you... Right? That's right... Simply
because, instead of moaning and groaning, whimpering and whining about
not getting the results you desire, you are developing quality character.
You want to get off the nail and do what's needed for your benefit and
Prayer is saturation of
the subconscious mind by what is predominant
in the conscious mind.
Every person's subconscious
is connected with the Infinite
Powerful Intelligent Energy of the universe that we call God.
Unfortunately it's not
awakened in most of humanity to its
connection to the
Divine Intelligence of the universe because of the minds we all have
being so occupied with all the
'noise' that fills them, which constantly keeps the door shut:.Romans
12:2 "And be not conformed to this world, but be you transformed by
the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable
and perfect, will of God."
When one is responding to
his environment who lacks the spiritual component of the invisible reality,
then what he or she sees
is what he or she expects.
In order to awaken one's
subconscious, the Infinite One has to
'call' a human being, that is, awaken his mind to spirituality, for
this is not something he will see come to him from the
mass mind of humanity, the sum total of all thoughts, the bank of thoughts
which has and has had input from all of normally selfishly inclined humanity
since man's beginning on earth.
You can't think yourself
awake and you can't think yourself into sleep. These things are all handled
by the programming we came with. We just have to get out of the way. Just
like getting well if sick; just stop poisoning yourself. And, prospering.
Just stop the attitudes that show the invisible world that you are unworthy
of having more:.Luke
16:10-12 "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also
in much...who will commit to your trust the true riches? and who shall
give you that which is your own?"
subconscious has in it from a person's predominant
thoughts and heartfelt feelings goes automatically.(it
is always working).into
the invisible energy, from where it soon thereafter comes into the physical
world. That is why it is important to guard your mind.(*).
You do not want negative things walloping
The law of intention is
that in whatever you do, whatever your attention is on, your intention
is placed within it, and effective to the degree of your heart felt feeling
for doing so:.Ecclesiastes
9:10. For example if you painted a painting as Aimée Rousseau
done, it would have tremendous healing properties. When she was painting
one as a gift for a friend who was in hospital, she had such feeling for
the person in mind, she said over and over to herself as she was painting
it, "I love you", and no doubt, other special words.
Paintings and music bypass
the conscious mind and get right into the subconscious. It's important
to always select high quality in both paintings and music, so they have
the greatest and furthest reaching beneficial affect upon your subconscious
in that they increase your belief in what is that you want.
It is claimed that as you
view her paintings that because of what she 'put into them', they will
heal you. The same is true of rocks. In some countries, what they call
'gratitude rocks' are used; just ordinary rocks, but given with feeling
to the individual who is in need of a healing. They do work!
It was the same in Paul the
apostle's time way back when:.Acts
19:11,12 "And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul, So
that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons and
the diseases departed from them and the evil spirits went out of them."
The power in these things
was in the belief of the person who did the painting, sent the rocks or
the handkerchiefs. This is because we are all within the same
of mind. What affects you, does affect others.
When we realize that we too
family), we approach prayer differently:.Phillipians
Psalms 82:6; John
We now approach prayer from
the point of view that we have power bestowed upon us, able to use it in
a way that the Father of the family of God does. And what is this way?
It is the way of making things become as you would have them be. If one
is ill, to get the person well, you have to see the result in your mind
as a mental picture, of how it would be to have the person up and about
again. If prosperity you want, you have to see a mental picture of just
how your life would be with it. It sounds like a hokey
trick, but it isn't. It works. In this,.you.are actually calling
things into being that are not presently in physical existence. In this
we, thanks to God, are also creators. He has designated that we have control
over certain of the laws that He set in motion:.Romans
4:17 "...God, who quickens the dead, and calls those things which be
not as though they were."
46:10 "Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times
the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand and I
will do all my pleasure."
1:3,4 "According as.his
divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
the knowledge of him that has called us to glory and virtue. Whereby
are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises, that by these
you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption
that is in the world through lust."
12:3 "...think soberly,
hath dealt to every man the measure of faith."
Note that it is His power
that gives us all things, the power that is shared with us, the power that
a supply that you get more of as you go along. Think also, that these
things 'just do not come automatically', otherwise we all would have them
now and we all do not have them now in the physical, otherwise there would
be no need to ask for them:.Matthew
21:22 "And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing.(accepting
as true and if you were sure that what you have accepted as true is a reality
9:29}, then you would live in the reality
of the sure finished work you know of Christ:.John
17:4), you shall receive." John
8:32 "And you shall know the truth and the truth makes you free."
of Christ in you does
things for you.
We pray from what we think,
from what we are:.Ephesians
6:18 "Praying always with all prayer.(make
prayer your priority).and
supplication in the Spirit.(praying
watching thereunto with all perseverance.(keep
your attention on how those in need are doing).and
supplication for all saints.(praying
for needs of others)."
Be moved enough to pray
It works! And all
of us need the prayers of others.
The tragedy of our day is
not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer, but there is an answer to
unanswered prayer. Part of that answer
is, and the
rest of it is..., but here you must comprehennd what
righteousness is and it's probably not at all what most people think
that it is. All prayers are heard
instantly, but they are not all answered that way.
Many pray for things, not
realizing that in Christ they already have all things:.2Peter
are they, right? The only thing that precludes
these things from us is our heart; what it is
we really believe:.Matthew
In prayer, there is either
a response you recognize or their isn't a response at all. If there is
no response coming to you immediately in your mind, and soon to be in the
physical, then you are out of alignment by connection of your
spirit with the
1:17. Get into alignment. It's through your soul connection that responses
come. All obstacles to prayer responses have been taken
out of the way, but if you don't know this, how can you be sure that
you are in alignment with, which means to be equal
Great things in life are
ours for the asking, as the Great Infinite One is able to do exceedingly
great things for us once His nature of love is in us:.Ephesians
3:20 "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all
that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us."
So the key is, the
power that works in us and ensuring that it is kept effective in our
hearts and knowing
how to work it.
Without knowing how to work
it, believing and not backing up with actions is futile:.James
of compassion and concern, things that help others, things
that cause the Holy Nature of love to flow in us, things that cause
us to grow into the likeness of His nature of love.(speaking
of character, not
are the important things.
Each of our expressions of
love is not the same as another's. The Infinite One doesn't
When love is missing, much
power in life is missing; power to overcome selfishness, power to eradicate
bad habits and addictions and power
to have a renewed life.
Prayer builds one up:.Jude
1:20. It is through prayer that we have access
to God the Father, thanks to what Emmanuel has done:.Ephesians
2:18,19 "For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the
Father. Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens
with the saints and of the household of God."
you good things; so, get to know what
it means to be in Him.(Matthew
7:7-11; the example of Jabez and God's hand upon him:.1Chronicles
4:9,10; and upon Hezekiah),
Malachi 3:6. So, be sure
41:17 "When the poor and needy seek water and there is none and their
tongue fails for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel
will not forsake them." Isaiah 49:10
"They shall not hunger nor thirst, neither shall the heat nor sun smite
them, for he that has mercy on them
shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them."
is there impossible for God to do for you?
Once one gets on the proper
side of existence on Earth, he sees and is able to master
things that cause major problems in life. And why.would
one want to master his or her problems?
