Co-creating Through Prayer II

Urantia Book 110:1.3 - "Although the divine indwellers are chiefly concerned with your spiritual preparation for the next stage of the never-ending existence, they are also deeply interested in your temporal welfare and in your real achievements on earth. They are delighted to contribute to your health, happiness, and true prosperity. They are not indifferent to your success in all matters of planetary advancement which are not inimical to your future life of eternal progress."
Refusing to pray to God for His divine assistance and/or intervention in your material welfare: job, business, finances, marriage, health, etc, may seem altruistic, 'not selfish', 'not personal', 'free of personal interest' or 'selfless'. It may come off as macho, spiritual or grandiose to some but in actuality, it is defeatist. It is burdensome. I may even add that it is selfish. Your Thought Adjuster {God within, the divine fractal} would like to be involved in everything about you and this includes material or temporal matters. Of course, God's main focus is your spirituality. However, bare in mind that everything about a faith-liberated, "born again" child of God is sacred. So, yes, we should talk to our heavenly Father about everything. Nothing wrong with that. And while we are at it, we make efforts to discern His will concerning that particular matter...
In communication with God and the heavenly hosts [prayer], we have a beautiful opportunity or privilege to "co-create" with God. With our thoughts, our hearts, our words (words energized or infused with spiritual power), we visualize, we speak into existence that which constitutes truth, beauty and goodness. It may be a material or physical need or desire. It may be something strictly spiritual. We exercise our "faith", pray and act as well, having at the back of our minds, the divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding related to our prayer. And this is one way in which prayer changes us and pulls us closer to divine perfection...
When i pray, some useful pointers for me are: How does this benefit me - how would it contribute to my being a better man, a more useful or more productive person? What would other people get or benefit from this prayer request of mine? Would it contribute to seeing a better neighborhood, a better world - peaceful, moral, economic, healing, healthy, spiritual, etc?
I have to examine: What are my motives? What are my true intentions? Where is the Father's will in all these? What's in it for the Universe?

Co-creating Through Prayer

Prayer is not a monologue. It's a dialogue. In prayer, you engage with God and the cosmic, celestial forces. You partner with divinity to make things happen. You co-create with divinity. You speak things into existence. These are things that do not yet exist. You co-create, you co-labor with God to bring them into reality in this life. This is one of the very important reasons why we pray. God has structured it in such a way that you, his child work or partner with him in order to get things done. 




There are certain things our heavenly Father doesn't wish to do alone. He desires to accomplish them with you! And as you work with him, you receive training for greater tasks you would embark upon in your eternal future. These are outstanding tasks that would be carried out in order to fulfill the Father’s eternal and divine purpose. Glory! Hallelujah! ‪#‎pray‬ 


Now what will you make real in this life? What will you like to see come to pass? What contributions are you willing to make to pull this planet closer and closer towards full blown, "Planetary Era of Light and Life"? "...the Universe awaits your choice to see what you will make real in this life and then as a result of your choice, realities can be made manifest and will be used to the glorification of the Father." Hold onto prayer. Use it as a tool, a great tool to manifest your destiny! 


Remember, Jesus always prayed. We have to learn to pray and to pray powerfully...  And as faith-liberated souls, we have to learn to align our prayers with the will of our heavenly Father.


Please, say this to yourself, out loud: "I am a powerful co-creative being! My creativity is my contribution to the Father’s will as revealed through me. Hallelujah!" So, once again the question is asked, "What will you make real in this life?" Have an outstanding day!

Worship makes one increasingly like the being who is worshiped. Worship is a transforming experience whereby the finite gradually approaches and ultimately attains the presence of the Infinite. #worship 


Urantia Book 146:2.17 - "...Jesus taught his followers that, when they had made their prayers to the Father, they should remain for a time in silent receptivity to afford the indwelling spirit the better opportunity to speak to the listening soul. The spirit of the Father speaks best to man when the human mind is in an attitude of true worship. We worship God by the aid of the Father’s indwelling spirit and by the illumination of the human mind through the ministry of truth. Worship, taught Jesus, makes one increasingly like the being who is worshiped. Worship is a transforming experience whereby the finite gradually approaches and ultimately attains the presence of the Infinite."

Shalom and Namaste!


"The next evening, having gathered together the twelve apostles, the apostles of John, and the newly commissioned women's group, Jesus said: "You see for yourselves that the harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few. Let us all, therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest that he send forth still more laborers into his fields."" - Urantia Book Paper 150:4.1

"And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force." - Jesus, Matthew 11:12

The "spirit of God" in you!

Instruction for Teachers and Believers: "The world is filled with hungry souls who famish in the very presence of the bread of life; men die searching for the very God who lives within them. Men seek for the treasures of the kingdom with yearning hearts and weary feet when they are all within the immediate grasp of living faith." - Jesus, The Decapolis Tour ‪#‎UrantiaBook‬ Paper159:3.8

"But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding." - Job 32:8, King James Bible 

"Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it." - Ecclesiastes 12:7, 
King James Bible 

The "spirit in man" is "God in man" - the spirit of God and from God the Father that is in a human being. It is this spirit that Jesus referred to when he said, "men die searching for the very God who lives within them."
The Urantia Book calls this spirit, "Thought Adjuster", "Mystery Monitor", "Thought Changer", "Thought Controller", "Divine Presence", "Pilot Light", "Fragment of God". 


To have a greater and far better understanding of "this spirit", study Papers 107 - 112 of the Urantia Book
