Such an intellectual prayer lacks deep humility.

Prayer in spirit and in truth.

Prayer in spirit and in truth.

16. Aapril 1953. B.D. NR. 5653

No-one will call me for help in vain, who sends his request to me in spirit and in truth. But how are you to pray that your call reaches me? You are not to speak out a lip prayer, for I do not hear and listen to it, because your heart is uninvolved in it, because you do not establish the connection with me, but always remain on earth, because you just practise a form, which has no life. But also an intellectual prayer does not get through to my ear, although man acknowledges me intellectually as God and creator from eternity and now expresses words to me in this belief, through which he believes having established the connection with me. I require a different prayer; I require the full confidence in me, I require the request call of a child, who recognizes the father in me and fully trustingly comes to him that he may help him. In the confidence of a child lies the power of faith and a prayer, which is sent to me so, comes from the heart and hits my ear. Then man does not speak to God, but the child to the father. Only when a man seeks me in thoughts in the stillness of his heart, when he holds a conversations with me, when he spreads out before me unaffected and undisguised, what presses him, when he recommends himself in humility to me and my care, when he has removed all barriers between him and me, when he lets me be present through an intimate call, he prays in the spirit and in truth; then his spirit rises up to me, or also I lean down to my child, and his request will not die away unheard. A child, who comes to me with all its requests so devout and fully trustingly, him I will not disappoint; I will also reveal myself to him as loyally caring father; I will not leave it in trouble. I will not let his faith be wrecked, for he does not seek me in the distance, he dares to come to me and still remains deeply humble, otherwise he would not pray, but demand. But an intellectual prayer is a demand, which man makes on me, because he believes being entitled to it through his acknowledgment of me myself. Such an intellectual prayer lacks deep humility, for where humility is, there the intellect keeps silent, but the heart speaks the louder. In the spirit and in the truth you are to pray and that you can only, so you establish the child relationship with me. Then the way from you to me is not far; then you can be with me at all times in thoughts, then you also always draw me to you, for then your thinking will always be directed towards me in love, and I recognize and feel your love and can therefore already have an effect on you through my spirit. And then you will never do a wrong request, for the father always hears, when his child calls him.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5653.
