Prayer Chaplains Corner


In reference to prayer, in “Lessons In Truth” Emilie Cady writes, “It is always easier for the mind to say realizingly, “Thy will is being done in me now,” after having prayed, “Let Thy will be done in me.” It is always easier to say with realization, “God flows through me as   life and peace and power,” after having prayed, “Let Thy life flow through me anew while I wait.” Of course, prayer does not change God’s attitude toward us, but it is easier for the human mind to take several successive steps with firmness and assurance than for it to take one big, bold leap to a point of eminence and hold itself steady there. While you are thus concentrating your thoughts on God, in definite conversation with the author of your being, no outside thought images can possibly rush in to torment or distract you. Your mind, instead of being open toward the external, is closed to it, and open only to God, the source of all the good you desire.” Cady, H. Emilie. Complete Works of H. Emilie Cady (Annotated) Unity Books.
