In the early part of the Course’s story, there are at least three instances where its scribe, Helen Schucman, prays for others in an unusual way. On these occasions, she is joining with Jesus and speaking directly to someone in her mind. In this episode of A Course in Miracles Radio, Robert Perry and Emily Bennington discuss Helen’s unique style of prayer and how we can all use it to help ourselves and others adopt a healed point of view.
