THE POTENT POWER OF PRAYER BY GORDON HIGGINSON
Spiritualists do not have a special knowledge of why their loved ones are taken at the time of passing. They have the knowledge of continuous life. The Spiritualist does at least know that no life is wasted, no experience is wasted, although we cannot see the whole pattern.
Concerning prayer, I have often said that the training of mediums should not include instructing them how to pray. I stand by that. By the time a person is entitled to describe himself or herself as a potential medium, they should have knowledge of what prayer is.
I believe that prayer is important in our lives, perhaps the most important part of development. It has such powerful implications; it can have such an effect upon us. It is no use developing the psychic unless you have also learned about yourself as a spirit being, a part of God.
When you pray, you become the prayer. We understand that God is an inner power, not outside at all. When you ask for something in prayer, it is no use expecting an outside power to come along and give you what you have requested. But if you recognise that and become your prayer through the sincerity and depth of your thoughts, then you have the answer.
