The Fourth Secret of Answered Prayer – September 24, 2017

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.”

The Third Secret of Answered Prayer – September 17, 2017

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 17, 2017, was The Third Secret of Answered Prayer. The third secret is about surrendering and placing ourselves in a trusting mindset so that answered prayer can manifest in, as, and through us. The reason this involves increasing our trust factor is because we keep looking for outer signs according to our own understanding of what they should look like, rather than Spirit’s transformative process of refining our consciousness for the outer manifestation of answered prayer.

The Second Secret of Answered Prayer – September 10, 2017

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.

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 10, 2017, was The Second Secret of Answered Prayer. Once again Dr. Holmes tells us, “Our whole theory is based not only on the belief in Spirit, but in the availability of It—Its immediate response.” So now we have the second clue, that because of our limitless access to Spirit, we can be assured It listens, hears, and responds. Therefore, how will we eliminate mind-static so that we may deeply listen, hear and respond to the inner guidance coming directly from Spirit’s treasure chest.
