At one time we opened meals with prayer instead of a can opener.

With the way some men and women cook, you had better pray over your meal before eating it!

When driving you can tell people need to trust in God for safety and protection or they wouldn't drive like this.

It takes more character to handle prosperity, than it does adversity!

Why pray? Why not? Prayers can be answered.."What 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 Williams.

"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 Ledwith from his book.Saving Jesus.

Emmanuel's words here were said to the disciples:.Mark 11:24 "Therefore I say unto you, What things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them and you shall have them.".Matthew 7:7; Luke 11:9; John 14:13; 15:7; 16:24; 1John 5:14,15.

How to know if they are applicable today to you.

2Peter 1:3 "According as his divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness.(talking about the good things), through the knowledge of him.(but, where is what I want?).that has called us to glory and virtue."

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 ask him."

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.

One child's prayer is."I am your child God. My heart is pure and no one but God shall live in it.".Another."Now I lay down in peace to sleep, for I know God is awake.".Another."Now to sleep I go, for God's my keep. And in the morning when I awake, thanks to God for the day He'll make.".And a six year old's poem/sort of prayer.

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 what 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 Grabovoi.

"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 Tesla.

A guideline for our praying is the famous Lord's Prayer:.Matthew 6:9-15

Prayer is having God's attention by talking about what you want to talk to Him about.(one example).and 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 in 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 42:10.

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 the Creator.(Matthew 7:7), the Great Infinite Intelligence who dwells in the invisible.inside you:.Colossians 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."

Don't be fussy about prayer.

So herein is meditation, akin to contemplation 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 Soul, 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 particular 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 relief, why then is there often no answer?

Why 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 in ways we didn't expect and sometimes not at all, as in the case of little Timmy.

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. Daniel 10:12,13.

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 9:28.

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; 15:28.

The key is,.all is spirit and there is no 'outside', no 'inside'. There is just intention within:.Luke 17:21; Matthew 24:23. To those of a higher consciousness, He's here now as this verse.(1Corinthians 4:5).on conviction of the heart shows, a conviction where one is guided in all truth.(*), 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: 1Corinthians 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 the world.(no 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 5:4).for 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 its understood:.Malachi 3:2,3.

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 18:1; 21:36), 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 thinker. How?

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, is; is 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 called 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 fall away.

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 concerned about.

"If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration."....Nikola Tesla. See the movie The Connected Universe.

"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, Ph.D..(do 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 11:1-13.

"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 others."....Unknown.

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?"

What the 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 your life.

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 Perrine.(healingpainting.com).has 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 sea of mind. What affects you, does affect others.

When we realize that we too are Gods.(God is a family), we approach prayer differently:.Phillipians 2:5,6: Psalms 82:6; John 10:34.

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."
Isaiah 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."

2Peter 1:3,4 "According as.his divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through 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."

Romans 12:3 "...think soberly, according as.(original 'about how').God 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 is 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 {Matthew 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."

The faith 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 with feeling).and watching thereunto with all perseverance.(keep your attention on how those in need are doing).and supplication for all saints.(praying earnestly for needs of others)."

Be moved enough to pray for others. 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 1:3; 1Corinthians 2:12. Well, where are they, right? The only thing that precludes these things from us is our heart; what it is we really believe:.Matthew 6:33.

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 Soul:.James 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 with, God?

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 2:20.

The things 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 personality), are the important things.

Each of our expressions of love is not the same as another's. The Infinite One doesn't want clones

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."

The Creator.will.give 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), here and now:.Hebrews 13:8; Malachi 3:6. So, be sure to ask:.Isaiah 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."

What 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?
