CONDITIONS OF EFFECTIVE PRAYER. If you would engage in effective praying, you should bear in mind the laws of prevailing petitions: (91:9)

    1. You must qualify as a potent prayer by sincerely and courageously facing the problems of universe reality. You must possess cosmic stamina.

    2. You must have honestly exhausted the human capacity for human adjustment. You must have been industrious.

    3. You must surrender every wish of mind and every craving of soul to the transforming embrace of spiritual growth. You must have experienced an enhancement of meanings and an elevation of values.

    4. You must make a wholehearted choice of the divine will. You must obliterate the dead center of indecision.

    5. You not only recognize the Father's will and choose to do it, but you have effected an unqualified consecration, and a dynamic dedication, to the actual doing of the Father's will.

    6. Your prayer will be directed exclusively for divine wisdom to solve the specific human problems encountered in the Paradise ascension--the attainment of divine perfection.

    7. And you must have faith – living faith.

psychic circles (110:6sec) Circles, psychic Perhaps these psychic circles of mortal progression would be better denominated cosmic levels actual meaning grasps and value realizations of progressive approach to the morontia consciousness of initial relationship of the evolutionary soul with the emerging Supreme Being. And it is this very relationship that makes it forever impossible fully to explain the significance of the cosmic circles to the material mind. These circle attainments are only relatively related to God-consciousness. A seventh or sixth circler can be almost as truly God-knowing—sonship conscious—as a second or first circler, but such lower circle beings are far less conscious of experiential relation to the Supreme Being, universe citizenship. The attainment of these cosmic circles will become a part of the ascenders experience on the mansion worlds if they fail of such achievement before natural death. (1211.1) 110:6.16
