I AM HERE. Jesus.
I merely want to say a word for the benefit of you and your friend,*
and that is that I have listened to your conversation tonight, and
find that it is in accord with the truth; and the influence of the
Spirit** is with you both. Continue in your line of thought and in
prayer to the Father, and, also, in your making known to others,
whenever the opportunity arises, the importance of seeking for and
getting the Divine Love.
As your friend said, the only prayer that is necessary is the prayer
for the inflowing of this Love; all other forms, or real aspirations
of prayer, are secondary, and, of themselves, will not tend to
produce this Love in the souls of men.
Let your prayer be as follows:
THE PRAYER FOR 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 CREATIONS,
AND THE MOST WONDERFUL OF ALL THY HANDIWORKS, AND THE OBJECTS OF THY
GREAT SOUL'S LOVE AND TENDEREST CARE.
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 OF THY CREATURES.
PRAY THAT THOU WILL OPEN UP OUR SOULS TO THE INFLOWING OF THY LOVE,
AND THAT THEN WILL COME THY HOLY SPIRIT TO BRING INTO OUR SOULS
THIS, THY DIVINE LOVE, IN GREAT ABUNDANCE, UNTIL OUR SOULS SHALL BE
TRANSFORMED INTO THE VERY ESSENCE OF THYSELF; AND THAT THERE WILL
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
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
INTO THE IMMORTAL.
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.
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 WHO SO CONSTANTLY SURROUND US AND
ENDEAVOR TO TURN OUR THOUGHTS AWAY FROM THEE TO THE PLEASURES AND
ALLUREMENTS OF THIS WORLD.
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.
PRAY THUS WITH ALL THE EARNESTNESS AND SINCERE 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
I am in very great rapport with you tonight, 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,

About James E. Padgett
Born August 25, 1852, Mr. James Edward Padgett
practiced law in Washington, D.C. Subsequent to his wife's, Helen,
passing in February, 1914, James learned from a psychic that he had
the gift of automatic writing. Based on the promptings of the
psychic and with a desire to reach his dearly departed Helen, he
commenced take messages from the spirits in the spirit world. At
first, James denounced the messages as merely coming from his mind,
driven by a strong desire to reach his departed wife. Eventually,
however, James could not deny the fact that information he was
receiving could not have possibly come from his own mind - for the
content of the messages surpassed his own education and knowledge.
Before his passing in March, 1923, James had accumulated hundreds of
messages from spirits and celestials in the spirit world.
