2014 Reprint of 1941 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Affirmation is the core of prayer practice as taught by Jesus. In this understanding of prayer, Jesus raised us from being mere beggars, asking for things of the physical world from a God "out there." Instead, he united us with our Source--our Father--reminding us that we are sons and daughters of the very essence of all that is, that we have direct and constant access to all we will ever need.
In this book, Charles and Cora Fillmore break down the practice of prayer for us, expose its components, and show us how to tap into a level of consciousness that will ultimately go beyond beseeching, even beyond affirming, to being in the Christ consciousness.
In learning how to pray, we learn the importance of communicating with God through practicing affirmations and by entering the silence. Through these and other techniques, including six-day prayer treatments, we arrive at ultimate communion with our Source.
Charles Sherlock Fillmore founded Unity, a church within the New Thought movement, with his wife, Myrtle Page Fillmore, in 1889. He became known as an American mystic for his contributions to spiritualist interpretations of biblical Scripture.
