Here is the fourth installment in the video of the Hands of the Cause of God, titled “Golden Moments”. This one features Collis Featherstone talking about obligatory prayers. The “John” he refers to off camera is John Robarts.
I’m not sure what he means when he says that the reason we should memorize prayers is that they can be with us in the next world. Somehow, I don’t think the next world is one where we have minds or mouths with which to say prayers. I suppose the ‘next world’ is such a foreign concept that we have to resort to what we know to describe it. Yet, for all we’ve been told, it is nothing like what we know. I do agree that ‘prayers’ do exist in both planes of existence. And by that I mean anything which is the rememberance of God with the intention to glorify His station.
In any case, something tells me you’ll be a-ok in the next world, even if you don’t memorize your obligatory prayers.
