Prayer is the medium of miracles. ...The only meaningful prayer is for forgiveness, because those who have been forgiven have everything. Once forgiveness has been accepted, prayer in the usual sense becomes utterly meaningless...
Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) May 07, 2012
In response to overwhelming demand, and as part the celebration of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace (September 14-23, 2012), A Course In Miracles International today re-released online its very popular prayer booklet, "Jesus Is Praying", an anthology of prayers and meditations given by Jesus Christ in the New Testament of The Holy Bible and A Course In Miracles.
Thousands of copies of this and other prayer booklets, which have been translated into about a dozen languages, were freely distributed by A Course In Miracles illuminate teachers and healers, as part of their relief efforts in New York City, following the September 11 disaster in 2001.
The introduction to the prayer book, "Jesus Is Praying", reads, "The bright power of these words of prayer spoken for you, and by you, in the name of Jesus Christ is far beyond any dim idea within the darkness of your human identity. Nothing in this world can even remotely compare to the joyous healing experience possible through the application of God's Love they will provide. Use them. Depend on them. These prayers are an immediate direct communicating link between this isolated place of pain, loss and death and the certain freedom of eternal life that is the universal Love of God."
According to Teacher of God, Jubi, one of the event coordinators of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace, “Prayer is the medium of miracles. The outstanding characteristic of the prayers taught by Jesus Christ in A Course In Miracles is that they truly do offer a real and immediate contact with God. They make no allowance for a continuing existence in the state of separation, unforgiveness, desolation, despair and death that define the human condition. This little booklet contains all that is needed in this moment for total liberation. It is our greatest joy to avail ourselves of it.”
Jubi continued, “As Jesus says in the Course, “Prayer is a way of asking for something. It is the medium of miracles. But the only meaningful prayer is for forgiveness, because those who have been forgiven have everything. Once forgiveness has been accepted, prayer in the usual sense becomes utterly meaningless. The prayer for forgiveness is nothing more than a request that you may be able to recognize what you already have.'”
"For example," added Jubi, "here is a prayer from the booklet: 'I can be free of suffering today.'
'Father, I thank You for today, and for the freedom I am certain it will bring. This day is holy, for today Your Son will be redeemed. His suffering is done. For he will hear Your Voice directing him to find Christ's vision through forgiveness, and be free forever from all suffering. Thanks for today, my Father. I was born into this world but to achieve this day, and what it holds in joy and freedom for Your holy Son and for the world he made, which is released along with him today.
'Be glad today! Be glad! There is no room for anything but joy and thanks today. Our Father has redeemed His Son this day. Not one of us but will be saved today. Not one who will remain in fear, and none the Father will not gather to Himself, awake in Heaven in the Heart of Love.'”
