The Desolate Places Will Bloom And Blossom As A Rose

.    I am here, Helen;
    I am glad that you have the Master's prayer to help you and open up your soul to the inflowing of the love of the Father. It is a wonderful prayer, and as you repeat it with all your sincere soul desires you will find that peace will come to you, and the very presence of the divine love will be felt in your soul. So try to learn the prayer and offer it up to the Father, not only at night when you are ready to retire, but during the day, and especially when you feel gloomy and downcast, for the results will do you much good. It will bring to you the presence of this love, and also the higher spirits who possess so much of it; and the rapport will enable you to realize that there are spirits hovering around, and such spirits as will cause you much happiness and peace. So remember what I advise and give your aspirations to the offering of the prayer, and to the hope that you may abound in this love in all its fullness.
    Oh, my dear, when I think of how blessed you are in having conferred upon you this great mission I can hardly realize that it is true. Yet I know that it is, and that you should feel so thankful to the Master, as I do. No other has had such a privilege conferred upon them, and, of course, no other has such a responsibility. And when this latter is considered, it seems that you will have the sustaining influence and power of all the spirits who are in your higher band to enable you to do the work and not faint in its performance. Jesus is with you and you will not be afraid that you will not succeed. The way and the means will be provided, and the great truths will be given you, and through you, to the world. And in the future men will learn the truth and thank the Father that it became possible for His truths and knowledge of His great love to be revealed through the instrumentality of a mortal.
    You may be forgotten, but your work will live forever. And people and nations will experience the benefit of it and come closer to the Father and closer to one another as brothers and sisters. The nations will necessarily be what the individuals who compose them are, and love and peace will reign on earth as the Master promised long ago, and as he promises now.
    All will be fulfilled. And as the old prophet said, "the desolate places will bloom and blossom as the rose." And this means that in people's hearts and souls will come such love that every person will truly become each others neighbor, and the great leaders of mankind will realize their dream of the brotherhood of man.
    I must stop now, so with my love, good night. 
    Your own true and loving, Helen
