Spirituality Course

Spirituality Course
As a Christian, I believe that prayer should be a complete drawing close to God. The prayer visualization demonstrates the need for a complete reliance on God, giving up oneself to Him in love and peace, letting His Spirit flow into us. We are told in the New Testament that if we ask, we shall receive; seek and we shall find; knock, and it will be opened.If we truly believe then we shall receive all these things and more, because we shall be in full communion with Him. Only then shall we know that we have received what we really need. The Course mentions that 'true prayer is a time of listening and loving' resting in God's peace and thanking God for what we have already received.
I have found that the words of Christ in the New Testament have gained new meaning through the reinterpretation in the light of this lesson. One begins to see beyond the literal meaning to a deeper lasting meaning that connects us with God in a different but more spiritual and lasting way.It is difficult at first to accept that perhaps I have been praying in the wrong way and even more difficult to change established thoughts and attitudes, but seeing things from a different angle is very stimulating and thought-provoking.
