Group: Nashville TeaM


Teacher: Ham

TR: Rebecca



Greetings children, I am Ham and I am happy you have come so that we may interact and discuss. This evening our discussion will begin concerning prayer.


Prayer, Growth

Prayer is a powerful technique for reaching toward God. It is a method reinforcing attitudes of humility and meekness toward our Father. Often human beings pray for certain specific outcomes but prayers are more than your wishes. A prayer can be a simple "help me" or "I need you" entreaty. And this act of reaching out for help is a powerful tool to aid your spiritual growth.

The Master said, "Happy are they who are poor in spirit, for they will be filled." This is the attitude of true prayer. This prepares the soul to receive the divine touch.

Every person is in a state of incomplete growth. The divine touch stimulates parts of the soul to grow so that the soul is balanced and steady. This growth prepares the soul for its work in the world. The most powerful prayer is the asking for growth.

The growth itself is productive of dynamic action and interaction in the world. The growth itself is your answer to your prayer. The world will not change but the souls interaction in the world will change. Prayer does not confer control in the world but spiritual growth does create self-control and self-control can and does condition circumstances in the world.

Growth must come before you are ready to handle the circumstances you may desire. It would not help you to have the outer circumstances to your liking if you are not able to handle those circumstances well. Spiritual growth is the engine driving your lives. It is the thing that can and will affect you outer circumstances. And always, you will find yourselves in circumstances that will enable your growth. For your growth is the true purpose of your lives.

Growth is what shapes and guides your destinies. From the perspective of your indwelling spirit your growth is the all important mission of your combined existence. Each person receives from God and gives to the world. It is the mission of the indwelling spirit to bring God’s love first to your heart and through you to the hearts of others. As your lives become more and more attuned to the purpose of the spirit, you are enabled to give more and more of yourselves to others. It is this giving that is the secret of your treasure in heaven.

Each of you is very actively growing. Each of you prays and worships in the Spirit. Each of you desires spiritual growth above all else, and so you are open to the growth stimulation the Spirit provides. Sometimes, often times, spiritual growth is painful and difficult. It would be easier, it seems, to stop right here, to solidify your feeling, reactions, attitudes and opinions, but even though growth is hard, stopping growth is deadly and poisonous to the soul.

It is best to be open and to strive to open even more to the Spirit’s stimulus. Growth is not something to be guided or controlled by your mind, rather it requires openness of mind. For you cannot presume to know better than God knows. The Father may very well refuse you the things you pray for, but if you are open and growing, he will bring to you those things best for you growth of this you may be certain.

The Father cherishes your trust. His Spirit always moves to strengthen your trust in Him. And so with time you understand the reasons why you are given what you are given. And the reasons why certain desires are withheld. The Master said, "Would a good father give a child a serpent simply because he asked for it?" The Father may not grant your wishes, but He cares for your needs, the needs of your soul. As you grow in the world, as you come to understand the ways of the Spirit, you will find that the Father gives you exactly what you need. He does not give you more, nor does he give you less.

The greatest need of the soul is love, and as you awaken to love you will be given more. Your love, your capacity for love will never diminish. Love must grow and love must flow from you outward to others. Love is not something that you and the Father can have in secret. When you love God the world soon sees that He loves you, for His love flows through you and touches everyone around you.

My children have complete and total faith. Let there not be one drop of doubt in your river of trust. Give your souls fully to the Father’s love without reservations or question and in that love find your answers. Find your purpose and find yourselves.


Q: Abraham talked to us once and basically this group was to be put on accelerated growth. Please explain what this means.

A: He meant that the spiritual food that you were to be given, that you have been given through these groups would be productive of accelerated rate of spiritual growth.

Q: I expected the test and the trials to come faster to accomplish the accelerated growth.

A: You are given those tests which you can handle. If you are growing, you are preparing and the test come as you are prepared to receive them. But let us also think of growth as producing spiritual fruit. Fruit is for the benefit of others as well as yourself. The fruit is the sharing of your growth, so as you grow in the spirit you are more giving and more able to give. Yes there are tests, but these tests are to strengthen you, not to grade you.

Purpose, Service

Q: I have had a consistent prayer over the years of "let me be of use". Yet I do not feel that this prayer has been answered because I feel pointless and useless and not contributing.

A: My daughter, these feelings are not real. They are not indicative of you stature and standing in the universe. What you are confusing is purpose. You are, my dear, fulfilling God’s purpose. But of course the goals of time are not the goals of eternity. You may have some unfulfilled earthly goals, goals of your choosing, and you may wonder as the child and the serpent wonders why the Father has withheld such a beautiful prize. Instead of a lot of pointless conjecture of why this or that human project did not fulfill your human expectations, instead thank the Father for protecting you and for giving your soul the perfect requirements for growth, for growing you are my dear. You will be none to ready when the Father calls you. All of your life is preparation for the Father’s work and He will give you those things which are required for your growth over those things which would give ego gratification. Do not be in any doubt that the Father is using you. Do not doubt that you are fulfilling his will, for you are. Be at peace with things the way they are and know for certain that the Father places his errands before you. Service is the delight of all God-knowing children. Be delighted at each opportunity both small and large to serve. Is this helping?

A: This is a great relief.

Q: It has to be alright the way it is before it can get better?

A: Yes

Personal Counsel

Q: Anything for Rebecca?

A: Yes my daughter, gradually as you grow in the spirit you find you are able to handle ever more difficult tasks with an increasing grace and confidence. Do not be fearful of the future for the Master walks besides you each step of the way.

Q: Anything for Me?

A: Certainly my son, you are also finding a level of balance and grounding which has eluded you in the past. You are finding that your strength is not to be feared or denied. It is not necessary to run from yourself and gradually you are coming to understand that you my son have your own place in the universe. A place which cannot be taken from you. The Father in heaven has claimed you as his child, his beloved son, this status is yours for eternity. The Father already loves you infinitely, now it is you who must grow in love for Him, and in this process you will come to love yourself even as the Father himself loves you. Find security in that love and all is well.


A: Of course, my son be at peace. You have before you a great task. This is given with love, not sternness. The Father will create those circumstances that are right for you and he will remove those circumstances which are not right. You my son must trust in the Father’s wisdom, his guidance and his purpose. And yes much of this is impenetrable for the human mind, so faith and trust are yours. The trust of a child will guide you.

Any advise for Wendaring concerning her spiritual quest and the people she is working with?

A: Certainly, my daughter these experiences will help you to grow in your spiritual understanding. Be careful to remain grounded and do not be carried away in human wishing. You will have the insights and guidance you need. Have faith.

Q: Personal message for Norbert.

A: Yes my son, you are doing very well and have come through some difficulties with increasing confidence and a growing spiritual depth. Find increasing love in your heart and in the truth of those around you. Recognize your own ability to discern truth, but also recognize that truth is not ever complete in this life. It is always partial.

Q: Anything for me:

A: Of course. My daughter you do well. You are making great strides in the spiritual realm. You are working ever more completely for the spirit and are accepting his purpose for you in ever greater degree. More and more you are opening your self to your own potential and you are accepting your spiritual potential bit by bit, day by day. In fact, all things are becoming new, for spiritually you are gaining ground and this spiritual perspective is becoming more and more dominant in your thinking. Have peace my daughter, the way will open for you, don’t be in a hurry to make decisions, rest for a while. You are doing just fine.


My friends be at peace. Allow the Father’s love to surround your hearts so that they are cushioned in love. Whatever harshness befalls you. Do not be concerned over the future, rather live completely each day, in love, faith, charity of the spirit and a growing willingness to give everything to God. In this manner your way will open and your needs will be met. That is all. Farewell.
