Series 2 - Lesson 7 - Annotation 7
What is the true method of prayer?
7. The true method of prayer is to "enter into thine inner chamber" which means to turn consciously within to God, closing our mind to all outside distractions so that we may commune with our own indwelling Lord. We speak of this contact as "the Silence" for it is here that we open ourself to the inflow of the attributes (ideas) of God. Preceding this period we may have had to do much meditating on Truth, on our relation to God, and undoubtedly we have brought into play the processes of denial and affirmation to make our consciousness fertile ground for the "planting" of God ideas. No method of prayer can be a true one unless both praise and thanksgiving become a part of it.
