I am here, Jesus.
I merely want to say a word for the benefit of you and your friend. That is; that I have listened to your conversation to-night and find that it is in accord with the Truth. The Influence of the Holy Spirit is with you both. Continue in your line of thought and in prayer to the Father. Also, in your making known to others, whenever the opportunity arises, the importance of seeking for and getting the Divine Love.
As your friend said, the only prayer that is necessary, is the prayer for the inflowing of this Divine Love (true souls longings and aspirations, in all earnestness and sincerity, for the Divine Love itself). All other forms, or real aspirations of prayer are secondary. Of themselves, will not tend to produce this Divine Love in the souls of human’s.
Let your prayer be as follows:
Our Father, who art in heaven, we recognize:
That Thou Art–art All Holy and Loving and Merciful, and that we are the children of Thy Care and not the subservient, sinful and depraved creatures that our false teachers would have us believe.
That we are the greatest of Thy Creations and the most wonderful of all Thy Handiwork’s, and that we are the objects of Thy Great Soul’s Love and Tenderest Care.
That Thy will is that we become at one with Thee and partake of Thy Great Love, which Thou hast bestowed upon us, through Thy Mercy and Desire that we become, in Truth, Thy children. Not through the sacrifice and death of any one of Thy creatures, even though the world thinks that, one, Thy equal and a part of Thy Godhead.
That Thou will open up our souls to the inflowing of Thy Love, and that then will come Thy Holy Spirit to bring into our souls, this, Thy Love in great abundance until our souls may be transformed into the very Essence of Thyself; and that there may come to us Faith–such Faith as will cause us to realize that we are Truly Thy children and that we are One with Thee in very substance and not in image only.
Let us have such Faith as will cause us to know that Thou art our Father and the bestower of every good and Perfect Gift, and that only we, ourselves, can prevent Thy love changing us from the mortal to the Immortal.
Let us never cease to realize that Thy Love is waiting for each and all of us, and that when we come to Thee with Faith and earnest aspirations, Thy Love will never be withholden from us.
Keep us in the shadow of Thy Love, every hour and moment of our lives, and help us to overcome all temptations of the flesh and the influence of the powers of the evil ones, who so constantly surround us and endeavor to turn our thoughts away from Thee, to the pleasures and allurements of this world.
We thank Thee for Thy Love and for the possibility of receiving it, and believe that Thou art our Father–the Loving Father who smiles upon us in our weakness, and is always ready to help us and take us to Thy arms of Love.
We pray thus with all the earnestness and longings of our soul, and trusting in Thy Love, give Thee all the glory and honor and love that our finite souls can give.
This is the only prayer that humans need offer to the Father. It is the only one that appeals to the Divine Love of the Father. With the answer, which will surely come, will come all the Blessings, that humans may need and which the Father sees are for the good of His Creatures.
I am in very great rapport with you tonight and see that the Father’s Divine Love is with you. That your souls are hungry for more.
So, my brothers, continue to pray and have Faith. In the end will come a bestowal of the Divine Love, like unto that which came to the apostles at Pentecost.
I will not write more now. In leaving you, I will leave my Love, blessings and the assurance that I pray to the Father for your happiness and love. Good-night. Your brother and friend, Jesus.
The following is an inspired, modern version of “The Prayer” that may be considered for use also, remembering that the words are meant to inspire the souls desires and longings.
Our Father, in the Celestial Heavens, we recognize Thee as All Holy, Loving, Merciful and Powerful. We all, as the Children of Thy Creation, are not the subservient, sinful and depraved creatures that false teachers would have us believe. We are all the greatest and most wonderful of all Thy Creations, souls, Created in Thy image and likeness, by Thy Hand, Perfect. Who came into this world in a pure and pristine state and condition. We are all the objects of Thy Great Souls Love and Tenderest Care.
That Thy Will is that we become At-One with Thee and partake of Thy Great Love, which Thou hast bestowed upon us through Thy Mercy and Desire, that we become, in Truth, Thy Divine Children, through the inflowing of Thy Divine Love, the Very Essence and Substance of Thy Divine Soul.
And not through the sacrifice and death of any one of Thy Creatures, most especially Jesus the Christ, who became Thy Most Beloved and Divine Son, in Divine At-Onement with Thee through the inflowing of Thy Divine Love, as the result of the exertion of his own free will in deep, earnest and sincere longings for Thy Divine Love.
By his leadership and example, and with him now, our Master, our brother and our friend, Jesus the Christ, and all the Celestial Angels in this Divine Congregation of the Christ Spirit, we pray to Thee, with all the most earnest and sincere longings and desires of our souls for Thy Divine Love, that Thou will open up our souls to the inflowing of Thy Divine Love.
Then will come Thy Holy Spirit, to bring into our souls Thy Divine Love in great abundance, until our souls may be Transformed into the Very Essence and Spiritual Substance of Thyself.
Then will come to us Faith! Such Great Faith as will cause us to realize that we are Truly Thy Divine Children and that we are At-One with Thee in very Substance and not in image only.
Bestow upon us such great Faith as will cause us to Know that Thou art Our Creator, the bestower of every Good and Perfect Gift, most especially Thy Divine Love, and all that proceeds from It. That only we, ourselves, can prevent Thy Divine Love changing us from the mortal to the Immortal.
Let us never cease to realize that Thy Divine Love is constantly waiting for each and all of us. That when we do come to Thee with Faith and earnest aspiration for Thy Divine Love, as we do now, that Thy Divine Love will never be withholden from us.
Keep us in the Light of Thy Great Love every hour and moment of our lives. Help us to overcome all the attachments to the things of the material world and the influences of the powers of the lower ones, who so constantly surround us and endeavor to turn our thoughts and aspirations away from Thee, to the pleasures, allurements and worries of this world.
We thank Thee Dear God, for Thy Great Love and for the possibility and privilege of receiving it. We know that Thou art The Loving God, who smiles upon us in our weakness and is always ready to help us, and heal us, and take us to Thy Arms of Love.
We do pray thus with all the earnestness and sincere longings of our souls desires, and trusting in Thee and Thy Great Love for everything, we give Thee all the glory, honor and love that our souls may give.
