Conflicting wishes cannot be my will.
- Father, Your Will is mine, and only that. ²There is no other will for me to have. ³Let me not try to make another will, for it is senseless and will cause me pain. ⁴Your Will alone can bring me happiness, and only Yours exists. ⁵If I would have what only You can give, I must accept Your Will for me, and enter into peace where conflict is impossible, Your Son is one with You in being and in will, and nothing contradicts the holy truth that I remain as You created me.
- And with this prayer we enter silently into a state where conflict cannot come, because we join our holy will with God’s, in recognition that they are the same.
- I have heard it said by students of ACIM that prayer is unnecessary yet in the URTEXT of ACIM (2003 PDF edition printed in Hungary, in the middle of page 14) I read yesterday that prayer is how the Son communicates with the Father. I have to admit that I accepted that idea as well for the past 8 years. I had developed a train of thought that only seeks to do the will of God and I live it like a walking meditation so God never leaves my mind. I want to remember to actively say to Him that I love and respect Him in the language of prayers as well. I think there are many forms of prayer. As simple as an attitude to as formal as a ritual with an altar. I really do love my experience with the URTEXT and the original notes of A Course In Miracles.
- And this is where we obtain our peace from. Knowing that we are doing what we can at this moment to understand the will of God and to live by it as our own. The forgiveness of the idea of separation from God allows for when we fail to recognize His will or if we fall short in any way at all and that is where our happiness lies.
To God be all glory, in the name of Christ, amen.
Till next time, God bless,, debi.
