The Importance of Prayer

You know your limits and weaknesses don’t you? That is why you need prayer. Where can you get the necessary help and guidance? Is there anyone to turn to? The most important thing in prayer is the attitude of the person who is praying. The most essential thing is your promise and commitment to God that says, “I will go toward this destiny without reservation.” If anything wants to block you – even a hurricane or tornado is coming at you – you must go forward. Once you gain such grit saying, “I am ready for anything! Let it come at me anytime,” then nothing will stop you. That is the decisive promise and attitude. Unless you have that absolute pledge and commitment first, God will not be able to help you. This pledge is the beginning of your prayer.

God does not want to waste His time either. Can you imagine how many times He has been betrayed in history? People make promises to Him; but within a second, they broke their promises to God. This has been repeated over and over again throughout the human history. How can God believe that you will not break your pledge? Before He would help you, you must show Him some kind of proof. What God needs to see is proof of what you are and how strong your commitment is. You may tell God you are totally committed, but He will shake His head and think, “I have to wait three more years and see.” If God sees that something isn’t quite right in you, He will wait before sending down His help. God is foolish if He gives His help freely but then at the end of several years the person is all in pieces. If I were God I would also wait and see. Suppose you were God, what would you do?

When a couple in the Kingdom of Heaven gives birth to children…

When a couple in the Kingdom of Heaven gives birth to children, they are the children of God: you can feel that immediately. When a couple loves each other in the kingdom, they can feel another dimension of God’s love. When you have such a strong bond of love under God’s protection, parents and children cannot he separated. Thus they experience vertical love on a higher level, and they will set the true tradition of loving relationships between children and parents. Once that is formed, that is God’s nation and God lives there. Then our five spiritual senses will he opened, and we will live seeing everything and hearing everything. To inherit such a family tradition is the way the blessed couples meet God.
