REMEMBER YOUR BROTHER’S NEEDS IN ALL YOUR APPLICATIONS TO DEITY EQUAL TO THOSE OF YOUR OWN
Members of The Mystical Ordse Ministries and The Mystical Court believe in God, Each individual member is free to understand who God is and how God would be worshipped in his own way according to the dictates of his conscience. The Mystical Order Ministries and The Mystical Court teach us that we are to pray, yet it leaves the details of how those prayers are to be offered to the personal devotional tradition of each individual.
However, a member prays, be it kneeling in an ornate cathedral, prostrate to the East, standing with his arms uplifted to the heavens or simply while driving his car down the road, he is instructed to pray for his brothers.
Furthermore, he is instructed not simply to pray for his brothers after he is done praying for himself. No, a member is charged to remember the needs of his brothers and sisters before God, equally with those of his own, So strong is the bond of the Mystical Court upon those who take our fraternal organization seriously.
In addition to the spiritual benefits of intercessory prayer, this practice has a great social benefit of increasing the feeling of connection and love between members of the organization. It also requires us to actually know something about the lives of the men and women who sit in our Court with us. We must know about their lives, their joys and fears so that we can pray fr them in our application to Deity.
Thus I say unto you my brothers and sisters, put into practice our true belief in the very real brotherhood of man under the Fatherhood of God.
