Subject: “Effective Prayer”
Message received by Oscar.
Thought Adjuster: “Prayer does not ensure divine favor, but it benefits greatly the souls of those who pray. Prayer is mainly a means to prepare the soul and the human mind for spiritual reception. It is a tool to syntonize your mind with the transmissions of spirit, bringing a creature closer to her Creator.
If you pray only for yourself, you are expressing your lowest selfish nature. When you pray, sincerely, for the spiritual enlightenment of your peers and the progress of your world you are expressing a wish that is similar to the plans of the Father, and this brings you closer to His will and His way of thinking. As you get closer to the Father you will be able to hear and understand Him, not through words but through your experience and the confirmation you receive by noticing how the fruits of spirit arise in your life.
Pray frequently so your mind learns to keep the connection with spirit. Pray privately and personally, establishing a direct conversation with your Father in heaven, who wishes for these opportunities to help you transform into a being of light and love. Pray to know His will, which is to make of each and every one of us perfected beings, capable of participating in the development of His divine plan and the creation of a reality that is increasingly more beautiful.
There are no prescribed way, practices, or methods, to make your prayers more effective. Prayer is just a way to use your free will and your sincere intention to elevate your mind to the spiritual heights where the Father can be found. The needs of your body and your mind are already known by the Father. Therefore, you do not need to remind Him. But you will obtain great benefits if your pray with enough faith to remember what you really are and where you are going. The needs and problems of your siblings are also known by the Father, but praying for them will go a long way in tearing down the walls of your indolence, helping you express love in the form of service to your peers.
Sincere prayer will not transform the world, but it transforms those who pray, providing them with the spiritual resources and the inspiration to make the changes that are so needed in this sphere. Your problems have to be solved by you, since this is the way to learn and become useful personalities for the universes – universal citizens. However, this does not mean that you are alone. Use prayer to gain access to the source of all wisdom – the Presence of God within your being – and this way you will be capable of transcending the things of this world and becoming a being in the likeness of God, which represents the culmination of the alignment of your human will with the divine will.”
