Prayer is not an activity of man but God…In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God…
‘For where two or three are gathered in my name, I AM there’, declares Christ. This gathering is not as mortals but as Spirit. Prayer, any form of prayer is good as long as it is based on the love for God, man, and God’s creation. To love God is to pray in Spirit and in Truth. Prayer is not muttering to our Father for the fulfillment of your need but knowing the truth about our Father, about yourself in relation to every man, woman, and child on earth. To know the Truth about the Holy One of Israel is to come to the full realization that, ” I and my Father are one; All things that my Father hath are mine; I live, move, and have my being in our Most Loving Father”. To know the Truth about yourself with respect to every man, woman, and child on earth is to realize that you are Spirit not mortal and that every man, woman, and child is also Spirit. To pray is to live in identity, in the steady realization that Christ Jesus is in me, and I am in Him; that Christ Jesus is the reality of your being and my being.
Prayer is another way of acknowledging that I of myself can do nothing; ‘but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works’. Prayer is total reliance on Christ within, the hope of our glory for direction, support, and guidance. Prayer is resting in the assurance that our Father is Perfection here, there, and everywhere. Therefore, where we are in time or space Perfection must be present, regardless of any seeming appearance to the contrary.
:” ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened unto you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened”. We are yet to catch a glimpse of what Christ is telling us. What does it mean to ask, seek and knock? You must be aware that our Lord is not telling us to ask, seek or knock for anything of a finite, physical or of a perishable nature. Would it not seem very preposterous to ask our Father for something very finite when He has already offered us infinity, Himself? Our Father is Spirit, therefore, does not have anything of a physical nature to give but Himself; He has His Word, Christ, Grace, and Peace to give, which now translate as fulfillment in our experience.
The only thing our Father has done is to invite Man to the feast as a witness to the Perfection that is infinitely present ‘here and now’. Christ cautions, “judge not after appearance; judge righteous judgment” , repeating the same decree He made to Adam in the garden: thou shall not eat of the fruit of good and evil. In other words, do not believe what your senses are appropriating as they deny the reality, CHRIST (Tree of Life) that is there. What your eyes are beholding are appearances that always deny the ALLNESS of God; they always deny that Christ Jesus constitutes individual-being. The work of the Father is finished and sealed in eternity; the end of the world has come; it happened at Calvary, the intersection point between time and space in eternity, externalizing in our experience as the crucifixion at the cross of Golgotha.
Therefore, no other foundation can any man lay than that which has been laid already by the begotten Son of God, Christ Jesus the reality of individual being. And in the degree of our acceptance of the finished work of the Father in eternity, externalizing as the renting of the veil (our mortality) at the temple in Jerusalem, when Jesus groans at Calvary, “IT IS FINISHED”, are we the gold, the silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or stubble to be tried and tested by the blazing fire of the Almighty. God is always the fire, and our degree of acknowledgment of His Presence right where we stand, makes us the gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay or stubble that shall withstand the everlasting burning or the lake of fire.
Finally, please remember this: every form you behold on earth is a test for you. Do you accept the image or the infinite, invisible Spirit, Christ Jesus, the reality of individual being that is there? What do you accept, God or mammon, Invisible Spirit or physical appearance? Demonstration of things or living by the proceeding Word of God? Bowing down to the things of this world or realizing that God is All? Always temptation confronts us with only one purpose: to convince us that God is not All; that there is God and something else – that there is God and lack, God and divorce, God and sickness, God and war, God and disaster – that we are human beings, ‘flesh and blood’, separate and apart from the infinite Christ the reality of our being. But Christ says,” thou art Spirit, begotten of God, the light and the salt of the world, undivided and unseparated from our Most Loving Father. I AM in you and you are in me”.
For this reason, Christ Jesus came to reveal the nothingness of the works of darkness, by being the LIGHT of the world. All the temptation in human experience is the human thought made visible. You see why we were asked to take no thought; you see why the scripture reveals that our thoughts are not the thoughts of God. This is what the scripture through Isaiah, Daniel, Paul, and John the beloved have thought us but we have not listened.
Therefore, as you learn to watch and pray; as you learn to seek and wait upon the Lord; as you learn not to look at forms but through them into the invisible Life, Christ that constitutes their being; as you learn to be ‘still and know that I Am God’, and if our Most Loving Father is present where you are, should you not be still before the Father? Thus should not the human mind, which is the prodigal be still and wait upon the Lord, in trust, in confidence, without a wish, without desire, without asking, simply content to be in the warmth and embrace of our Most Loving Father? While you are blabbing with the human mind, you deny yourself the capacity to hear the still small voice. Imagine standing before the throne of the world’s highest monarch and blabbing. If you knew how susceptible the human mind is to the denial that we live, move, and have our being in God; that only our Most Loving Father is present, then you will understand the need of the conscious effort to watch and pray without ceasing, on the Truth that besides our Most Gracious Father there is no other. Only then you can utter true prayer, “Father I accept now the Mind that was in Christ Jesus that enables me to see Christ Jesus in every person that walks this earth. Father, I seek only thy Grace; I share thy Grace with every man, woman, and child that ever lived, lives, and shall live in time or space”. This prayer is an automatic acceptance of the gift of God because it is the recognition of the One Infinite, Invisible, Indivisible Spirit of God, Christ Jesus in a person. In doing this, you are lifted out of humanhood that separates people into race, color, religion, culture, where only Christ Jesus is. However, when we pray other than the kingdom of God to express through us, we pray in unbelief; that makes us an atheist, as we are not having our confidence in the finished work of the Father at Calvary. In accepting the finished work at Calvary, in beholding the everywhereness of Christ Jesus through meditation, only then your life becomes a life of Prayer.
