What are the steps of the Journey of Prayer or the prayer process? If you search for the term “the prayer process” on the internet you get various suggestions for this process of aligning with Divine Intention.
The Prayer Process
- Time for Prayer
- Place of Prayer
- Turning Within
- Silencing the Mind
- Listening with the Heart
- The Journey of Prayer Menu
For example, one of the top searches related to the term the prayer process has as its focus praying for Christians in U.S.A.
While this prayer focus may be well intentioned this is a Level 1 prayer practice, and it won’t be answered because God doesn’t distinguish between Christian or the U.S.A.
Neither pray I for these alone but for all men – John 17-20
The idea of Christian (or other religion) and the United States of America (or other country) is a concept in the mind of the individual and those identified with the religion or nation state.
All such ideas promote the idea of separation. Prayer at Level III is beyond separation. It is an outpouring through the individual from a direct experience of unity with the Divine.
When you pray from a concept of separateness there is no alignment with Divine Intention which is forever non-separate.
If the prayer is answered it is because the prayer you prayed aligns with Divine Intention as it was always intended to be expressed through you.
At prayer Level I you tend not to be engaged in the primary task of seeking first the Kingdom. This Kingdom experience is the experience of union and connection. (Level III).
When you live and abide in the experience of Kingdom consciousness you are in union with Divine Intention and you will not be praying for the limited idea of a church, state, or religious community.
For prayer to work those who wish to undertake the Journey of Prayer need to follow the instruction, “Seek yeh first the Kingdom.”
Without the ability to abide within the experience that I refer to as Divine Intention probably 99% of your prayers will go unanswered.
So let me share with you the prayer process that I recommend that you explore.
Be aware that this is your journey. No one can take you into the direct experience of Divine Intention.
Everyone who has ever been gifted this KNOWING of Divine connection KNOWS that it is given by way of Grace. It isn’t earned.
It is as available to the greatest sinner as it is to the greatest Saint.
