No. 25 Pray the Mark

When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask.  Matthew 6:7 (John 1:13)

Aspiring immortal friend, know this: the spirit that pulsates in between your cells is more life giving than the blood that runs through your veins. You are unlike the unbelievers because your birth is neither the effect of your parent’s lust or of their love.

You were born of no less than the will of God. You have been given the right to become a child of the most-high God, you who believe in His name. He watches over you; He knows your mind and your heart. He knows what you need, and He knows what you want.

You are 100% human and 100% divine. Your divine Father hears the prayers of your divine self. You are heard because you are His. Your common language is your being, your reflection of His image and likeness, your obedience to His commands and yielding to His desires for you.  

Let your prayerful words be as purposeful and meaningful as His who said, “Let there be light.” And there was light. Nothing less will do; empty words make a mockery of your relationship. Recognize for yourself the difference between genuine and fake, between gold and plastic, between powerful words and empty words. He purchased gold for you, receive it; wear it. Pray it.
