EXTRACT FROM THE BOOK
MAKE ME A PARTAKER OF THE DIVINE NATURE
Omnipotent, Heavenly Father, grant I beseech you, that through the beholding of you within my soul, I may have the thoughts of my Saviour Jesus, his words and his actions.
Lord God, your first voice is silent. May I in the still silence of my contemplative prayer recognize your small voice by listening to you as you have always listened to me. May my petitions cease as I behold you and know your presence within. In that peace grant me your light, love and beginning of eternal life. I turn from the petty self-life to be a partaker of the divine nature. I gladly relinquish the physical, the mental, the emotional and the material. I cling to your silent simplicity, the fruit of the Holy Spirit enfolded as one in your love. Amen.
