Prayer Agree: 2 divider Disagree: 0

212

Both Agreements and DisagreementsIt is most important for you as humans to realize that you do not have to go beseeching and asking and begging for something you want. To come to true prayer with God is to come and give thanksgiving for anything that you wish in your life, knowing that it has already been done.

AgreeThis is always done on a subconscious level. But when a personality stops running asleep, centers, stills itself, and reaches in time to touch the eternal core, all approbation, all encouragement, all belief in what can be accomplished is there. As someone is sleeping soundly, you cannot put in front of them a book and say, 'Read this.' They are asleep. Yet if they wake and look at you, the book can be handed over.

Courageous Souls: Do We Plan Our Life Challenges Before Birth?, Robert Schwartz

AgreeLet the prayers be addressed to the Father of us all, that help may be sent to the soul who has passed on, and that the Father will also aid those who are offering their ministrations to the newly-arrived one. We need divine assistance in our work just as do you upon earth, and often are our powers taxed to their utmost when we come to aid those who are making their advent into spirit lands as permanent residents. Long recitations from the psalmists, however beautiful may be their theme, are perfectly useless to us and to the newcomer we are helping. They produce no effect whatever upon the endeavors we are making. A short prayer, efficiently directed, asking for help, will bring an instantaneous answer. That response will be invisible to you on earth, but to us here it means a downpouring of light and power that we most need for the case in hand. Pray that the soul may soon receive the light of understanding of the new situation in which he finds himself, if he is entirely ignorant of spirit truths, and that he may be happy and contented in the life upon which he has just embarked.

A person does not have to be behind bars to be a prisoner. People can be prisoners of their own concepts and ideas. They can be slaves to their own selves.
