"As you close your eyes in prayer, God knows that it is for the purpose of being an instrument through which His grace reaches your consciousness."
Early in chapter Eight of The Altitude of Prayer are two revealing passages each beginning with the word, “when”: “When you make contact with the Spirit of God that is within you, you bring into your experience the divine Power and Presence….When you realize that It is ‘closer ... than breathing’ you stop the search….”
This important chapter gives the reader an essential key to living the spiritual life. “Let the Spirit Bear Witness,” its title, says it all and lays out the prayer practice that opens wide the door to a living experience.
"Plant the seed of truth in your consciousness and begin daily to nourish it with brief periods of practicing the Presence which means a conscious remembrance of living in God and of life by Grace. Stop fighting life; stop chasing after God; and God will come right up to you."
