I USE DIVINE POWER IN PRACTICAL WAYS AND RIGHT ACTION PREVAILS IN MY AFFAIRS
… What things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24
There could be no more explicit technique for effective prayer than this laid down by the Master himself. We actually are to believe that we already possess the object of our desire when we ask for it. We are to accept it even as we believe in the harvest which follows the spring planting. Therefore, every spring should be one of hope and every harvest one of fulfillment. We must learn to accept the good we desire and affirm its presence in our experience, here and now.
Realizing that there is a Law of good that governs my affairs, I loose every thought of doubt, fear or uncertainty and accept the good that I desire, here and now. Realizing that this Law of Good not only knows how to create, but must contain within Itself all the details of Its own creation. I let go of every thought of outlining and accept the perfect answer today. Feeling a deep sense of gratitude and joy because of this, I live enthusiastically and with calm and happy anticipation of more yet to come.
Because there is no sense of strain in this, I relax in quiet contentment while at the same time realizing that what the law of Good does for me It must do through me. I declare that I not only know what to do but I am impelled to act, to move objectively. For this is not a dream I am entering into, or an escape from any present condition which is unhappy or unwhole. This is really the act of fulfillment, the moving into a greater sphere of action and life with complete certainty, calm confidence and limitless trust. Today everything in my experience shall be reanimated, reborn and increased. Gladly I accept my good and place no limit on the Divine givingness.
