Excerpt on Prayer from Hearing God’s Voice Album by our Mother Foundress

“My thoughts are not your thoughts. My ways are far above your ways.” Is 55:8-9

We want to go to prayer with an attitude of a child, to be taught by God. He is telling us to learn of Him. Jesus also said, “Learn of Me. I am meek and humble of Heart” (Mt 11:29). He wants us to know His Heart because He is a God of revelation. He reveals hidden things, not only hidden things about Himself, Heaven, the world, or prophetic things, but the painful part, the hidden things about ourselves as well. That’s why a lot of us run from this kind of prayer (contemplative prayer), because He might ask me to change. It’s a kind of mentality that “Ignorance is bliss. If I don’t know, then I don’t have to do it. If I don’t hear or listen to Him, then I don’t have to change.” If you find yourself skipping prayer time, and making excuses of more important ways to spend thirty minutes a day instead of with the Lord, maybe you’re running. If we want to know His Will, then we will be true to our daily prayer time with Him to stop, look and listen! It’s only in His Perfect Will that we can have union with God.

The mission of an intercessor and a prayer warrior is to be there with Jesus at the right hand of the Father, in His Throne Room. In Rv 3:21-22, the Lord says, “He who conquers I will grant him or her to sit with me on My Throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with My Father on His Throne. He who has an ear, let him hear the Spirit’s word to the Churches.” This is what happens when we come into the inner castle of the soul, into the inner room, the Throne Room. It’s the special dwelling place of the Father, and He has taken up residence there within each of us. We are His earthen vessels. We need to allow ourselves to be led into the Throne Room stage-by-stage, day-by-day. That is where intercession is at its best, because there is power there and, even more importantly, there is Presence there. Intercession has power when we enter into the full presence of Love, and that is what we all seek, love and union! It’s in that room where all these other voices of the “self” stop clamoring for attention. It means our intellect has stopped clamoring, our memory isn’t bothering us anymore, our will is totally surrendered and at peace, and the emotions are resting as well. Everything is resting, and this is where God reveals Himself and His Will, His Word, His Love, His Peace, all within.

Prayer is a journey, a journey from our brokenness to wholeness, from our sinfulness to holiness, from our separateness to unity, from being just in isolation to being now with God and with each other. All the Lord asks from us every day is that daily response, “Yes, Lord. Here I am Lord. Be it done unto me according to Your Will.”


“For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare, not for woe; plans to give you a future full of hope. When you call Me, when you go to pray to Me, I will listen to you. When you look for Me, you will find Me. Yes, when you seek Me with all your heart, you will find Me with you, says the LORD…” Jer 29:11-14
