May Thy presence and consciousness fill our hearts. May we realize that Thou art the only Reality.
Father, we do not want to offer a mechanical prayer to Thee, but we demand Thy presence, for Thou art our Father and we are Thy children. Teach us to pray with Thy love and to demand with Thy consciousness.
Make us realize that Thou art not hiding from us but that we are hiding from Thee. Make us realize that Thou art always just behind our hearts, silently listening to our prayers and thoughts.
Bless us, that hand-clasped, hearts interwoven, we may walk the path of Self-realization until we reach Thee.
