Many years ago I went to a wonderful little church in the
living room of Paula Scott. It was called the Family Church
of Marin. It was Paula's own mix of Science of Mind and Unity.
At the time I went Paula was in her early 90's and I would
not hesitate to say Paula was enlightened. She was a very
important mentor of mine. I went 4 or 5 times a week if
you can believe that, I was like a sponge, I could not get
enough. I wanted what she had. If you have been in the
presence of enlightenment you understand.
Paula described prayer as talking to God about God.
Paula's prayer went something like this:
"God is perfect and eternal now.
God has everything now.
God is providing everything now.
God is loving, forgiving and freeing everyone,
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lord, God Almighty."
Wow I can't believe I remembered that! It has been
years since I have even thought about that prayer.
Just when I needed a prayer like that.
God is Love, God is Omniscient, God is Omnipresent,
God is Omnipotent, in other words the Divine is
everywhere present at the same time, is all
knowing and all powerful. That power is love.
The Divine as me is the Divine as you and so we are
One in the Divine. God is all knowing and can
therefore answer any question, any need we have
and can get through. These are all things I say to
myself as a form of prayer. Then I sit in silence and
listen to the small still voice within. I would love to
hear others' prayers.
