THE LOVE of the father surrounds us. The power of the Father upholds us. The path to the Father is within us. Greetings I am Hilson. I am your teacher. Today I would like to discuss the benefits of prayer. During the last couple of weeks during your study time of the Urantia book you have discussed prayer.
Prayer is an important communication link between you and your Creator. Prayer when it is [spoken] traverses in many directions. Prayer of thanksgiving reaches the ears of the Father as through the fragment of himself that is in you.
Prayers of material concerns are heard more from your seraphim for they can directly understand the feelings, the human feelings you are experiencing and so with this understanding can minister to you much more easily. Humans pray in many ways, and it is important to pray, for it brings into consciousness a relationship you have with spiritual beings, an acknowledgment there is a Higher Power and then this gives the ministering spirits a door in which they may enter, higher spiritual ideas.
Praying for spiritual wisdom is an invitation to the Thought Adjuster to work more closely with you in relating messages of higher spiritual import. Also praying for spiritual wisdom gives the seraphim an ample opportunity to initiate experiences for you to discover through these experiences the reality of yourselves and the Thought Adjuster that is within.
If you assume that the Thought Adjuster already knows what you need , if you assume he will work for you what he feels would be best, this removes yourself from the discovery of perceiving his work in action. By expressing within yourself the need for more spiritual wisdom, the need for more spiritual guidance this gives you, as an individual separate from the Thought Adjuster at this time the chance to perceive and experience the Thought Adjuster in action. By communicating your desire for spiritual wisdom with the Thought Adjuster, you may then let go of the desire for spiritual wisdom and wait to see what action the Thought Adjuster and seraphim will use to see how it comes about through them.
Prayer comes in many different levels , in different aspects of a individual's progression. It is important to let each individual create their own communication with the Father, this gives the individual the chance to build their own personal relationship with the Father. It also gives each individual's Thought Adjuster a chance to explore with his partner the way they feel is the best possible path for this individual to travel: to find the Father.
