Series 1 - Lesson 1 - Annotation 3

What is true prayer?

3. Our lesson material states emphatically that true prayer is "conscious communion with God." When we consciously turn our attention to the Father within, placing our faith in Spirit (God), then we are acknowledging the one Presence and Power within our own being. We thus become receptive to divine inspiration in the form of God ideas, and there is no room for any limited concept to find entrance into our mind.

When our consciousness is free from worry or tension we are an open channel for the inflow of the inspiration and enlightenment of Spirit.

"In eagerness 'we wait in singleness of heart' for the revelation, inspiration, or illumination from the Father. When God 'speaks' it is the movement of Divine Mind on our mind expressing divine ideas that are absorbed by our waiting consciousness. We have now come to the place where we know!" (Lessons In Truth Lesson 10 Annotation 4).
