Faith acts like a law because it is a law.  It is the law of spiritual Mind in action.  When we realize this we no longer feel that we must have faith in ourselves, as isolated human beings, but rather, as human beings included in the great Law of life.  Then we can rest in complete confidence that our words are the presence and the power and the activity of the Spirit in us.  All sense of making things happen, holding thoughts or concentration of the mind are put aside, and with quiet, childlike acceptance we make known our requests with thanksgiving.

God and I are one.  Nothing can separate me from the Father.  All that I am, and all that I do, is the Divine Presence expressing Itself through me.  The thoughts I think and the words I speak are life and truth.  They are life and truth because God speaks them through me.  Of myself I give no authority to my prayer, but the child of God in me knows that the authority of the Father brings the words that I speak to pass.

I speak the word of health for my body, my feelings and my thoughts, knowing that the Father within is the Power which brings this wholeness into complete being.  I speak the word of Divine guidance and the wisdom of the universe wells up as a beacon to lead me into paths of right-use-ness, to make straight and clear my everyday paths.  I speak the word of joy and the Father within frees me from loneliness and sadness.  I speak the word of peace to the world and know that the Peace of God reaches into the hearts and minds of the people of all nations.
