EFFECTIVE PRAYER

One of the most effective ways of praying may be found in the prayer of Jesus as he was pressing forward to the goal of supreme triumph over the world's belief in matter and mortality. This prayer (John 17:5), "O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was," bespeaks the presence of God. This prayer also points to the fatherhood of God as clearly as does the Lord's Prayer, thereby denoting that we are, in our true being, the children of God and partakers of His nature and goodness.

Jesus also spoke these words in prayer (John 17:1): "Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee." Here he acknowledged man's responsiveness to Life's blessings, to God's goodness. Such divine response becomes natural to the individual through prayer, or communion with God. One who yearns for healing and affection has only to turn to God with confidence and expectancy in prayer, and by so doing he will respond to God's loving care and constant provision for each one of His children.
