There is a fee for
private appointments either by telephone or in my office, but prayer
requests submitted through this website are at no charge, however, sharing in the form of a love offering completes the
circle of healing. One should express gratitude to that place or
person that was the point through which the spirit brought forth the
healing. Otherwise, it is less likely that he/she will receive
help in the future, because he/she has not completed the circle.
God appears at all levels, and the realization that it is all God
should be expressed at all levels; "the laborer is worthy of his

- There is no doubt about your desire for health
and strength. Very well, dwell upon this peacefully. There
can be no pain where there is Peace, and God's Peace is everywhere.
It is omnipresent, yes, in you, throughout your being, spirit, soul,
and body. God in His Peace is Omnipotent, all-able. Let

His real Life as He gives it to you, instead of worrying about your
own opinions and experiences that you may have believed to be life.

these things as though you were learning a new language of thinking,
acquiring a new experience, taking up a new and silent exercise.
these truths, for such reading is true meditation and real prayer,
because in this way one really communes with Divine ability to
accomplish and with the everlasting Spirit.
not be concerned at first about studying the consciousness or about
whether your meditative communions with Divine Love are religious,
psychological or scientific. Do not agitate yourself about
anything. You are sweetly dealing with life, very Life, at first
hand. You are giving yourself to Life, and Life is giving Itself
to you. You are surrendering your body to Life and to
inescapable vitality, restful vitality, and because you do this and
make a habit of doing it, you will come into health.
- Learn in your heart, by your heart, and through your own unashamed
secret and devout love that you, your entire self, are one with the
very foundations of heavenly experience, and that experience on earth,
here where you are, is one both with God and yourself.
- Know that there is no far-off God. God and His Good are here.
- Remember again that He loves you and holds nothing against you.
God cannot be diverted. His one action is Love. Believe no
doubts. Let lying nervousness and apprehension alone. The
universe is not nervous. It is at Peace. Universal Law is
harmonious, and is every whit as much here as it is there or anywhere.
Live with it silently. No one can prevent you from doing this.
Come into the Presence of God by means of your consciousness, and know
that no one or no thing can harm you while in His Presence.
- More than all, rest. Do these things easily. Stop all
thought and all prayer when you wish and in faith. Whereupon you
will find that you can take up your healing communion often and
whenever you wish.
- And the Master consciousness will come to you. You will have
leadings and guidance from within. And Strength, God's Strength
and His Love and Peace will be yours.
- Yes, this is healing. It is healing prayer and treatment.
It is a coming into the knowing and into the health and vitality, for
health, strength, and harmony are the body's knowing of the Infinite
Good in its own way and after its own fashion.
- All this will transpire because you have in consciousness and Spirit
dwelt upon these things that constitute the great loving something
which is Life.
- Will you have the Word of our Master, the Healer? Then accept
it in your heart of hearts, in your very soul and do it for your body.
Do this by Spirit without labor.
- Are you "poor in spirit?" God knows, and He knows yours
"is the kingdom of heaven." (See Matt. 5:3-9)
- Do you mourn over things, the past, and others? Then you
"shall be comforted." All of such kind, "they
that mourn," "they shall be comforted." This is
the word of God, your Creator, given us by the Divine Christ as the
man Jesus among us. He who healed and knew. Accept by
being one with Him in Spirit. Trouble not yourself. God
knows no trouble. "Be comforted," "Be not
- Hear of this great sermon-discourse. Know that "the meek
... shall inherit the earth" and all things. You are
embodied in this earth, of this earth, yet in heaven. God's
heaven. Let there be no controversy within. Deal with God
and His Word, for His Word is made flesh. Accept His Word.
The Lord speaks with you. He Loves you and all else matters not.
- You search and "hunger and thirst for righteousness";
therefore you "shall be filled." This is His Word, not
your opinion nor mine. It is Truth. Your life shall be
"filled" and fulfilled. Who shall defeat the Lord, who
shall withhold His givings?
- Be of His very own and "Be like a tree planted by the rivers of
water.....his leaf also shall not wither: and whatsoever he
doeth shall prosper." (Psa. 1:3)
- Magnify the Lord with me. Prosper ye, body, consciousness and

stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid; Yea
thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet." (Prov.
- So also shall be your rest and your success with this, your prayer
and your healing.
