At the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles, you will hear relevant messages, by Rev. Pam MacGregor, that you can apply to everyday life.
I’m quite sure that, like myself, you’ve directed an abundance of prayerful energy into Laws governing the universe! This month I’ve had some extra assistance from a book I read—The Prayer Chest, a novel co-authored by New Thought ministers August Gold and Joel Fotinos. I became inspired to base this month’s theme—The Secrets of Answered Prayer—upon their book, because I found it so supportive in deepening my prayer practice.
Now of course those of us who have read the Science of Mind textbook by Dr. Ernest Holmes are familiar with the principles underlying spiritual mind treatment, and sometimes we may lose sight of some of the subtleties involved in answered prayer. So I offer you this month’s weekly topics as a means of rejuvenating and accelerating our spiritual practice of scientific, affirmative prayer.
The topic on September 24, 2017, was The Fourth Secret of Answered Prayer. Interestingly, The Prayer Chest authors leave the fourth secret wide open to the vast ocean of possibilities. What arose in my own consciousness is the clue offered in the fifth step of Spiritual Mind Treatment: Release. Specifically, releasing our attachment to the outcome of our prayer, including the “how” and “when” of it. Once again, I remind us of the words of Ernest Holmes, “Pray right and God cannot help responding.”
