Real Prayer Works – How and Why: Over the course of his lifetime of service, Dr. Masters presented a large number of inspirational lectures during his Sunday services. Almost all of them began with a meditation or healing treatment, after which he presented a teaching that included a set of affirmation statements.
In this lecture, Dr. Masters explains that real prayer is meditational, because it provides a oneness with God, whose Power, Creativity, and Guidance enable you to pray successfully. Remember, God knows what you need before you ask. So real prayer is not about asking for something; it’s about being open to what God knows is best for you.
Affirmations for “Real Prayer Works – How and Why” are:
- Variety: I understand that there are many forms of prayer, but that the highest or real prayer is meditational, as it was taught through the Christ Mind in Jesus for those who could understand.
- Meditation: Meditation is real prayer because it provides a oneness with God’s Presence, whose Power, Creativity, and Intuitive Guidance is the source for praying successfully.
- God Knows: In the New Testament it states, “Your Father knoweth what you have need of before you ask,” and therefore in reality I need not use asking prayer, but rather meditation to be open to God’s Presence as my source.
- Secret: By praying to the Father-God who sees in secret (in the higher Heavenly Consciousness within me), the Father-God shall reward me openly, according to what God knows to be my greatest need.
- Will: To gain full or more complete entrance into the Kingdom of Heavenly God Consciousness within me, I declare every day of my life that not my personal will, but God’s Will be done through me.
- Source: From the smallest to the largest good I experience in human life, I recognize that it is by the Grace of God’s Presence within me, and through my inner oneness with God’s Presence and Will gained through my daily practice of meditational prayer.
- Light: The Light of God creates in and through me.
- Supply: God within me knows what I truly have need of before I ask, and is supplying it.
- Successful Prayer: As God supplies exactly what I really have need of, all my meditational prayer or inner communion with God is successful.
