Having been raised from 5-9 years of age in the hills of a very "Pentacostal", West Virginia, my thinking has been busy being adjusted with regard to religion.
Like most of us, I found the churches of my times less than holy. Perhaps that was an unwarranted expectation on my part(?). For me, it would be another decade before the Urantia Book(UB) rocked my world. Another four decades and the rocking has settled into a more balanced...relationship.
We walk with God by design, not personal destiny. The design affords opportunity for God to have babies, lots of us. Personal destiny is the outworking of potentials between each spirit-child and the abiding designer, our Thought Adjuster(TA). It's an inevitable relationship for morally capable mortals with survival intelligence.
So, who is the "I"? and why post in Prayer Request forum? I'm not sure.

Supposing that no personality information is made real in any sense thru the media we are using(posting), we can't assume we know anything much about one another. The natural and easiest thing to do is attempt to be consistent in our presentation. This is the resulting "I" that we project, not only here but in the real world. This "I" is a momentary reflection in a continuum of "I"s. The consistent character grows into the son of "I AM". The "I" we project has no personality-reality but what we, the readers, afford it. It is that in-balance that adds a convoluted value to the words we use.

i pray we takes stock of our opportunities to discuss ideas and give direction to our decision-making. Father, protect us from ourselves. Continue establishing your desires in our thinking. Aid us by your spirit as we heal, grow and perfect the unison between us. Lead us and experience with us the passing of days as we will to serve and strive with the issues of sonship. Reveal in us your will. No matter how small our part, let us find peace and joy in the relationship. Abba, Father.

My prayer request is that we find value in the forum. May value found eventuate a fountain of meaning.
