The Prayer for the Divine Love
Our Father, who art in Heaven, we recognize that Thou art all Holy and loving and merciful, and that we are Thy children, and not the subservient, sinful and depraved creatures that our false teachers would have us believe. That we are the greatest of Thy creation, and the most wonderful of all Thy handiworks, and the objects of Thy great soul’s love and tenderest care.
That Thy will is that we become at-one with Thee, and partake of Thy great love which Thou hast bestowed upon us through Thy mercy and desire that we become, in truth, Thy children, through love, and not through the sacrifice and death of any one of Thy creatures even though the world believes that one Thy equal and a part of Thy Godhead.
We pray that Thou will open up our souls to the inflowing of Thy love, and that then may come Thy Holy Spirit to bring into our souls this, Thy love in great abundance until our souls shall be transformed into the very essence of Thyself; and that there may come to us faith - such faith as will cause us to realize that we are truly Thy children and one with Thee in very substance and not in image only.
Let us have such faith as will cause us to know that Thou art our Father, and the bestower of every good and perfect gift, and that only we, ourselves, can prevent Thy love changing us from the mortal to the immortal.
Let us never cease to realize that Thy love is waiting for each and all of us, and that when we come to Thee, in faith and earnest aspiration, Thy Love will never be withholden from us.
Keep us in the shadow of Thy love every hour and moment of our lives, and help us to overcome all temptations of the flesh, and the influence of the powers of the evil ones, which so constantly surround us and endeavor to turn our thoughts away from Thee to the pleasures and allurements of this world.
We thank Thee for Thy Love and the privilege of receiving it, and we believe that Thou art our Father -- the loving Father who smiles upon us in our weakness and is always ready to help us and take us to Thy arms of love.
We pray, thus, with all the earnestness and longings of our souls and trusting in Thy love, give Thee all the glory, and honor and love that our finite souls can give.
This is the only prayer that men need offer to the Father. It is the only one that appeals to the love of the Father, and with the answer, which will surely come, will come all the blessings that men may need, and which the Father sees are for the good of His creatures.
I am in very great rapport with you to-night, and see that the Father's love is with you, and that your souls are hungry for more.
So, my brothers* continue to pray and have faith, and in the end will come a bestowal of the love like unto that which came to the apostles at Pentecost.
I will not write more now.
In leaving you, I will leave my love and blessings and the assurance that I pray to the Father for your happiness and love.
Your brother and friend Jesus

Dear God in Heaven above,
I pray to receive Your Divine Love.
Wishing for my soul to open up nice and wide,
For You to pour Your Love inside.
Please make me strong with faith and care,
As it is Your Love that I wish to share.
I know all my wishes may not be granted,
But Your Love and blessings are firmly planted.
You are my creator and love me as Your child,
Please keep me protected when life gets wild.
I’m happy You watch over me day and night,
And I pray to You, God, with all of my might.
Thank You for loving me and hearing my prayer,
It feels great to know that You really care.
