“Truly Helpful Prayer” Session 2 | Being Truly Helpful 2024 Series: A Course in Miracles

“Truly Helpful Prayer”

Teaching Session 2

Here’s a recap of our second teaching session, led by Rev. Deb, which focused on the second line in the Truly Helpful Prayer, “I am here to represent Him who sent me.”

Session Highlights:

  • Meditation with Rev. Deb Phelps: We began with our calming meditation for this series, “I am here.” It is focuses on relaxation and presence emphasizing our companionship with the Holy Spirit and grounding in the present moment
  • Discussion on the “Truly Helpful” Prayer: Rev. Deb recapped the first line of the prayer, “I am here only to be truly helpful,” discussed in the first session, and introduced the next line, “I am here to represent Him who sent Me.” Rev. Deb shared personal reflections and stories highlighting the transformative power of love and empathy.
  • Exploring the Prayer’s Second Line: The focus was on understanding and embodying the second line of the prayer. This includes acknowledging our role in serving others and placing trust in the divine self for guidance and healing. 
  • Reflection and Journaling Exercise: We delved into the second 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 Lesson 71 and Chapter 4, Section VII, Creation and Communication.

Homework Assignments:

  • Reflection on the Second Sentence: Continue to ponder the second 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.
  • The Optional Assignment: If you chose to work with the previous optional assignment, focusing on being helpful to someone in your life, consider now the emotional responses to this thought.
  • Read: Gain further insights by reading the assigned chapter, which will be the basis for our next discussion with our facilitators.

This second teaching session had us reflect on how to be a representative of divine love and service. You are always welcome to join us.

Truly Helpful Prayer Session 1

Our initial series will delve into the “Truly Helpful” prayer, a cornerstone of the teachings in ‘A Course in Miracles.’ This prayer, found on page 28 of the Text, is not just a set of words but a profound declaration of intent and purpose for anyone seeking to live a life aligned with spiritual principles.

In our exploration, we will: – Examine the prayer line by line, uncovering its deep meanings and implications.

– Discuss how to apply these principles in our daily lives, turning theory into practical, lived experience.

– Engage in guided meditations to internalize the message of the prayer, allowing it to resonate deeply within our hearts and minds.

Additionally:

– You can join either our Sunday or Wednesday study groups, each will contain the same study each week. This first series will be about 10 weeks.

– Some weeks will be teaching sessions; others will be group reading and study. – Be sure to have your ACIM book nearby and a journal or notebook available.
