"Truly Helpful Prayer"

Session 1

Are you ready to embark on our enlightening journey through the "Truly Helpful" Prayer series? We are excited to share a recap of our first session, led by Revs. Deb and Paul Phelps, which laid a solid foundation for our exploration of this transformative prayer.

Session Highlights:

  • Meditation with Rev. Deb Phelps: We began with a calming and centering meditation, guiding us into a space of openness and receptivity.
  • The Background of the "Truly Helpful" Prayer: Revs. Deb and Paul Phelps provided insightful context into the origins and significance of this prayer, helping us appreciate its depth and relevance in our spiritual journey.
  • Reflection and Journaling Exercise: We delved into the first line of the prayer, engaging in a reflective exercise designed to deepen our understanding and personal connection to its message.
  • Reading Assignment: To prepare for our next session, we encourage you to read Chapter 16, Section I, "True Empathy" from the Text of 'A Course in Miracles.

Homework Assignments:

  • Reflection on the First Sentence: Continue to ponder the first sentence of the prayer. Allow its meaning to resonate with you throughout the week.
  • Practice the "I am here" Meditation: Regularly engage in the meditation shared by Rev. Deb to enhance your presence and awareness.
  • Read "True Empathy": Gain further insights by reading the assigned chapter, which will be the basis for our next discussion with our facilitators.

Optional Journaling Assignment:
  • In a quiet moment, ask the Holy Spirit: "Who in my life right now could use my truly helpfulness?"
  • Focus on the first person who comes to mind, whether they are a friend or a foe.
  • Spend some time with this thought and journal any emotions or reactions that surface. Note feelings of happiness, resistance, or anything else that arises when considering being truly helpful to this person.
This first session has set a powerful tone for our series, and I am looking forward to seeing how each of us grows and evolves through these teachings. Your active participation and reflection are key to making the most of our time together.

Reminder: Our Sunday and Wednesday sessions are the same presentation each week. Attend the session day/time that works for you and attend as your schedule allows.

Please feel free to share any insights or questions you may have in our next session or via our Facebook Group or Email Group. Your contributions enrich our collective learning experience.

Looking forward to our continued journey into the heart of "Being Truly Helpful."
