The love of the father surrounds us. The power of the Father upholds us. The paths to the Father are within us. Hello, my children this is Loriyana. I am your teacher.

It is so good to be with you each Wednesday evening as you worship and praise the Father and begin to develop techniques for prayer that are quite beautiful and effective. It thrills me and the other teachers to be here with you.

Thank you for the experience. I would like to take a moment to offer a few words of encouragement and tell you that the mission is going quite well that we are moving along quite rapidly.

Your ideas for a conference with other groups is quite exciting and we look forward to further development of this idea. Your group has much to offer in the way of experience to other groups even though you have not been around as long as they. There are many things that are outstanding about your group particularly in the realm of your devotion to the Father and your devotion to the mission. Again I would like to encourage you to continue developing the way you have been going.

Tonight I would like to talk about the need for further enhancement of worship and prayer. I was quite interested in the new addition to prayer and worship tonight that was offered by [group member].

He was quite courageous to add such prayers to the group prayer. I would hope that each of you will take time next week whence [you] are in worship to think of petitions for other beings, for other humans, members of the groups, family members, other friends whomever and take the time to pray for them also. It is heartening to us that you are becoming so caring and loving of your fellows.

Further, when you are taking the time to pray for another it is helpful, as you know, to mention to the person for whom you are praying that this is something you are going to do for them, it will make the prayers more powerful.

Do not worry that they will be offended that you are praying for them, be loving in the way you present it and they will accept it as a gift of your love. It is not something to be embarrassed about, it is something that one does for their fellows in a joyful manner and in a loving manner and can bring great peace and feelings of relief to the person being prayed for.

It sometimes does not seem that the person will respond positively to this but if you will let their Thought Adjuster, Spirit of Truth and Seraphim take over you will find that eventually the Father will find a way to be heard and felt in this person's heart. I am again pleased with this turn of events in this group, to choose the natural progression of prayer and worship which is happening here in this group.

The Father does listen. The Father does hear all your petitions and all prayers are answered eventually in the out-workings of time.

It is important to think about other things that you may address in your worship and prayer such as asking for the strength to follow the path that you lead, the request for the strength and persistence to follow through a particular problem and to think about what you would like to see happening for the group and the mission and for the correcting time.
