God calls us to be disciples of Jesus, reaching out in service and fellowship
to share the love of Christ.
Step 11: We sought through prayer and meditation to improve
our conscious contact with God as we understood Him,
praying only for knowledge of His will for us
and the power to carry that out.
Psalm 46:10; Ephesians 4:22-23; Mark 1:35
It is work to learn how to pray, largely the work of emptying the mind and filling the heart. We tend to trying to win, succeed, and take control through prayer. God cannot directly answer such prayers because they are usually for the wrong thing and from the wrong self, although we do not know that yet. If we are able to switch minds to the mind of Christ, our prayer has already been answered. That new mind knows, understands, accepts, and sees correctly, widely and wisely. Its prayers are always answered because they are, in fact, the prayers of God, too. It is known as meditation which is not common in Christian circles. Only contemplative prayer or meditation invades, touches, and heals our unconsciousness. This is where all the garbage lies but also where God hides and reveals ‘in that secret place.” (Matthew 6:6) People’s willingness to find God in their own struggle with life and let it change them is their deepest and truest obedience to God’s enteral will. At that point, God has won, and the ego has lost, and our prayer has already been answered.
