“The more we study prayer, the more we see that it has to have a lot of sincerity in it. When you come up and ask me a question there is not a single question that you cannot ask me that you couldn’t ask God first. Is that not true and in my opinion, God’s a much better person to ask because she actually knows the answers better than I do. It would make sense to me, that the person to ask would be the person who knows the answers. And the other beauty of asking God, is God’s on your shoulder every single moment of your life. God can give you instant answers, God is able to give attention equally to all of her children including you. If you develop your relationship with God through prayer, all the answers will come to you, just like everything I ask for comes to me in exactly the same manner in fact. And God doesn’t think I’m special and you’re not. God doesn’t feel that way. God is not like a parent on earth that is “Yes I’ve got my special son but all the others – ew! God’s not like that. No God’s going “All my sons and daughters are special to me. I want to engage with them individually, equally.” Every time you place me in the position of answering your questions, you are forgetting how important your relationship with God is and how unimportant your relationship with me is. Your relationship with God is going to change your life, it’s going to change your soul. Your relationship with me can’t do any of those things. I can’t change your life, I can’t give you God’s love and I can’t change your soul. I can make some suggestions. that’s all I can do. I can’t do anything else for you. God can do all these other things that I can’t do and I’ll never be able to do them….You seem to have concepts that God is limited because you can’t see her and you can’t feel her and none of that is true.God is immensely infinite in power and in understanding and in love. God can share with billions and billions and billions of people at the same time, the truth and give each single one of these people just perfect responses every single time. God can give you every single thing you need, every single thing…….So I say to you question your attitude if you are not getting an answer. God is really interested in you becoming the best you can be. That’s God’s primary objective – helping you become what she designed you to become, if you choose it.”
“Let’s be more definitive about what it means to ask God?
(To earnestly feel)
(To have huge desire and openness to ask God to show us the truth.)
Desire and openness is very good. Desire often creates openness and we want to know the truth of the issue and not what we want to believe the truth to be and be willing to hear that…or feel that. Yes a desire will create a willingness to listen. How does God tell us things? If I’m not open to God and I’m not feeling God’s emotions how does God tell me things? This amazing Law of Attraction. So there would also need to be a desire and openness to feel what is happening in my attractions, that my soul is currently attracting. Many people come up to me and ask us questions, I say what have you attracted on this matter over the last week or month or whatever it is? Good now we are starting to get the feeling of prayer. Have you taken responsibility for this yourself? So there needs to be a feeling that I want to take responsibility for this thing occurring that I am attracting in my life. I want to know not only what it is but not hope that it is not some other person’s problem.”

I would ask you to consider if you’ve asked yourself the same question you’re asking me? Have you pondered what you’re asking, with yourself and God, because part of what we’ve really been encouraging you towards this week is to engage your own process for yourself with God and have this introspective time and ask questions and feel, begin to feel things for yourself. I know lots of people have the addiction of wanting to know before we feel and so it can feel reassuring if one of us up here says I think that is about that emotion because of this thing in your childhood and now you go, right now I know what that is, I am going to go and feel about that and that doesn’t actually help you, it just feels like it’s going to help but in the end, you still have to face that emotion inside of yourself.
