在我還是個年輕小夥子的時候曾經發生過一段特殊的屬靈經歷，那次經歷讓我真實體認到 上帝的真實性。我知道 祂住在我們裡面，我知道 祂愛我們。我們是 祂靈裡非常真實的孩子、兄弟，以及姊妹。
一直以來，禱告幫助我了解我們身為人類的真實身分，包括我們的身體如何運作、如何解決問題並且進行療癒。現在每當在幫助前來求助的人之前，我都會先在心中默禱，這其實已經變成習慣了。有許多次我都因此受 神啟發，並且了解到超乎我自身能力以外的事情。我非常非常感激 神的幫助，並將一切榮耀歸於 神。
我真心鼓勵你們要在生活的各種面向尋求 上帝的幫助，特別在助人的時候。只要單單相信並且獻上感恩， 祂必成為你的倚靠。
再來我會請 祂協助我做這件事，並用 祂的智慧指引我。
When I was a young man, I had a profound spiritual experience, in which I learned that God is real. I know that He lives and that He loves us all. We are His spirit children, brothers and sisters in a very literal sense.
Prayer has been an essential key for me in understanding who we as human beings really are, how our bodies really function, how to correct problems and how to heal. It has been my custom to ask a silent prayer for guidance before attempting to help anyone who has come to me for help. Many times I have received understanding and inspiration that was beyond my own. I am grateful for this help, and I give the credit to God for it.
I strongly encourage you to ask God for help in all areas of your life, and especially in your attempts to help others. He will be there for you. You have only to believe and be grateful that He is helping you.
In case you are not sure how to pray, or what format you might follow, I will share with you what has worked for me.
I start by simply addressing God, usually by saying, “Heavenly Father”, as I believe He is my father.
I next thank Him for the opportunity I have to help the person I am trying to help.
Then, I ask Him for His help to do this, and for His insight and guidance.
Lastly, I close my prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. The word Amen simply means, “so be it.”
God bless you on your journey to getting well yourself. I hope that you will help many others along your way. I know that you can.
