I am here, Jesus.
I should like to finish my message on God tonight, but I do not think that you are in just the condition necessary to enable you to receive it, and I think it desirable to postpone it for a while longer.
You must surely realize the effect of prayer to a greater extent than ever, because if you had not prayed as you have been doing for the past few days, you would have found yourself in a great degree of despondency, as the same cause for creating this despondency exists now as it existed several days ago when you were so depressed and worried. Prayer is a wonderful help when offered with the true longings of the soul and will always find a response and the benefit will not be merely spiritual but, as you may say, material as well.
Of course, prayer does not remove the cause of worry and, thus, relieve the mortal from worry, but it operates on the mortal’s consciousness in such a way as to remove the effect of this cause of worry on the feelings and mental conditions of the mortal and in this way is the mortal benefited and his prayers responded to. He, as it were, becomes a new man and ceases to look upon these causes in the same light that he did before the prayers commenced to bring their responses. And he in his real self is a different man from what he was when in the condition that existed before he prayed.
I am so very glad that you prayed and let your longings go out to the Father and tried to have faith in us to help you. We are helping you, and you will soon realize the result of our work in securing those things that you desire and consider necessary to enable you to get rid of your worries and perform our work. Continue to pray and to have faith in....
