We continue our practice of conditioning our consciousness so that we create the Christ consciousness in ourselves this month with the Prayer of Faith by Hannah More Kohaus.
Myrtle Fillmore felt that all children would benefit from the memorization and study of the prayer.
we've been told to become like children so lets take the advise and use this prayer in our meditation time this month.
Here are Myrtle's thoughts on the subject.
The Teaching of Children
Humanity is coming intellectually to recognize and claim an omnipresent God. But the individual concept of the omnipresence of God does not enable man to make practical use of his great light. The understanding and realization of God being the very mind and life and substance of man's earthly existence must be as much a part of man's consciousness as are the human relationships.
We must learn to know that God is spirit and that his spirit within us is a motive power which carries us forward in every department of our daily living. Children should be taught that God is spirit and that the purpose of their being is to express God. They should be trained in the faith and understanding which makes them to know that they express the spirit of God in their every thought and desire and action.
The child's mind accords perfectly with true ideas and it is easy to rear children in conscious unity with God when they are encouraged through their faith to claim their sonship. Teach them to pray this prayer of faith:
God is my help in every need;
God does my every hunger feed;
God walks beside me, guides my way
Through every moment of the day.
I now am wise, I now am true,
Patient, kind, and loving, too;
All things I am, can do, and be,
Through Christ the Truth, that is in me.
God is my health, I can't be sick;
God is my strength, unfailing, quick;
God is my all, I know no fear,
Since God and Love and Truth are here.
I look forward to hearing how you use this to bless your life and others this week.
Have a wonder filled week.
PS Thank you to Truth Unity for posting this on their website which is a wonderful resource of Unity teachings.
How can we be Radiant Centers of Love & Light in the world?
One way is to forgive those who "trespass" against us.
What does trespass mean to you?
1.enter the owner's land or property without permission.
"there is no excuse for trespassing on railroad property"
commit an offense against (a person or a set of rules).
"a man who had trespassed against Judaic law"
synonyms:sin, transgress, offend, do wrong, err, go astray, fall from grace, stray from the straight and narrow"he would be the last among us to trespass"
To be love in the world we need to be able to forgive those who Offend, Do Wrong against us.
Are you able to do that today?
Have some fun with the idea.
Rough Cut of John's talk inspiring us to become a Radiant Center of Light & Love in 2018.
This late-1920s recording is a beautiful example of Charles Fillmore preaching the Power of Positive Thinking decades before the phrase was even invented. In thirty-three seconds, Fillmore encourages his listeners to greet the New Year with faith and optimism:
“The joy of the Lord be unto you. You should begin the New Year with great enthusiasm, because you know the Truth. Forget the things that are past. Rejoice in the opportunities of the present. Many blessings are yours. Pile up those blessings in your consciousness, and they will multiply and increase until your joy will be full. God bless and keep you always.”
Thank you's for this recording goes to Sammy Smith and TruthUnity.org
"May you be a radiant center of
Light & Love in 2018!"
