Seminary Program

This is where we post the essays from many of our Universal Life Church Seminary students. When students finish a ULC course, they write a comprehensive essay about their experiences with the course, what they learned, didn't learn, were inspired by, etc. Here are their essays.

Final essay, The Miracle of Prayer

The Miracle of Prayer
Final Essay
     Rev. Loretta Siani presented a super excellent course on The Miracle of Prayer.  All areas of prayer were covered, offering me hope and reflections on the possibilities of prayer .  The prayers given in each lesson were inspirational and in accordance with The Course In Miracles teachings.  The final lesson that Rev. Siani wrote was outstanding, giving insights to what she has experienced thru her praying and opening up to God's will.  Rev. Siani showed how to do God's work and choosing the will of God over our ego's desires.
     If I had to pick a favorite lesson, which is difficult since I total enjoyed them all, the lesson on the Holy Spirit stands out.  The mystery of the Holy Spirit and how this Spirit fits into the Trinity was enlightening,  symbolizing the purification of our hearts and putting a burning desire to work for God's will on this earth.  The Holy Spirit gives us inspiration and the inner peace we seek within the illusion of ourselves.  I have always been a 'fan' of the Holy Spirit and with the knowledge offered I see why this recognition is helpful in our daily lives.
     This has been a life changing class for me.  I refer and reflect back to each lesson frequently, dealing with the Healing of Relationships, Healing Loss, Healing Fears, etc., all good references for helping others within a ministry.  I so highly recommend this class, The Miracle of Prayer, to everyone.  Searching for the One Truth can only be found through prayer and trust in The ALL.  As our paths cross in this world we all look for our own truths, now we can look at the Truth through our illusions of what we think is true.
Thank you, Rev. Loretta Siani, you are the light.
Rev. Constance J. Hitts
