I pay attention to every call, which rises up from the heart to me, but those words, which only the mouth speaks, I pay no attention to.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Real prayer. Childlike relationship.

1. September 1953. B.D. NR. 5759.

Whoever calls me, him I hear. My ear listens to every sound, to every breath of my children, and I lean myself to them, still before they have spoken the word, because I love my children. My love bridges every distance, and there is no separation between an intimately asking child and me, for its call reaches me and fetches me to it, because I am always prepared to help and because I bless every connection, which the earth child establishes to its father from eternity. I pay attention to every call, which rises up from the heart to me, but those words, which only the mouth speaks, I pay no attention to. But how many prayers are said, which cannot reach my ear, because they are just lip prayers. One single thought only can and will accomplish more with me than long prayers, which lack intimacy, because the child does not speak to the father, but man just remembers a God standing far from him and seeks to move him to accept empty words and to fulfil requests, because man himself does not feel powerful enough to get on with life alone, and needs help. But he does not go the right way; he demands, where he should ask. But a request presupposes believing trust of a child to the father; man himself must feel as a child of him, who has created it, and for that reason also entrust itself humbly and believingly to the father. And that requires intimate words to the father, which do not need to be expressed, but are to fill the thoughts of the child. But mostly prayers have become form; the mouth speaks them out, while the thoughts dwell somewhere else, and so they are also with the words themselves, they lack the drive of the heart, which pushes towards the father. The intimate devotion to me is lacking, which calls me, indeed forces me, to lean towards my child and to give a favourable hearing to its request. An intimate prayer makes me glad, for then I have already won the man for me after all, because his will is meant for me, because it acknowledges me as its father from eternity and because it lays claim to my favour and power, which help it up, to perfection. An intimate prayer bridges every cleft; a man, who prays right, strives consciously towards me, and he also reaches safely his aim I am present to him, and he will feel my presence and no longer go alone through earth life.
.Amen. B.D. NR. 5759.
