You are asking for higher wisdom. Expect an answer. Have
faith. And be willing to do whatever you need to do to clear the
path to healing.
God is, above all,
kind. The spirit of the universe is loving, encouraging,
nurturing, helpful - cheering us on as we struggle through this dark
and difficult world. The Spirit will never frighten you or put you
down regarding your faults. It will speak only in terms of positive action and love. There is
nothing to be afraid of in seeking to know and do the will of God.
A good way to
approach prayer is to prepare yourself by creating in your mind the highest
"field" of truth, goodness and beauty that you can
imagine. It is in this uplifted state of mind that your reality
and divine reality can most easily intersect, and you can
receive the love and the help that you are looking for.
