"Prayer is not only asking, but an attitude of mind which produces the atmosphere in which asking is perfectly natural."
~ Oswald Chambers
"The prayer power has never been tried to its full capacity...if we want to see mighty wonders of divine power and grace wrought in the place of weakness, failure, and disappointment, let us answer God’s standing challenge, 'Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not.'"
~ J. Hudson Taylor
Affirmative Prayer has 5 Steps
Step 1 – Recognition (God Is)
We acknowledge that the Divine Force (the Divine Mind and the Divine Law), is flowing in, around, and through all things. It is omnipresent, the source of all that is.
Step 2 – Unification (I Am)
We acknowledge that everything is interconnected and interdependent. I am a part of you, you are a part of me, and we are one. Everything exists in this Oneness. The interconnectedness of all life is a profound spiritual truth
Step 3 – Realization (Place your desired good into the Divine Law)
We are realizing that since Divine Force is flowing through everything, and through me all the time, that I must only realize this truth that I am one with whatever good I am asking for and in that knowledge, that it will manifest in my life for highest good.
Step 4 – Thanksgiving (Grateful Acceptance)
It is very important to feel gratitude. This is considered one of the most important steps. The attitude of gratitude and thanksgiving is most essential. Feel this thanksgiving deeply and feel the beauty of the fact that what you are asking for will manifest. Have faith in this and express this faith through gratitude.
Step 5 – Release ("Let go, let God")
Now, release your word into the Divine Law or what physicists call the Unified Field of First Cause knowing that all that you have asked for that is good will manifest. You have planted the seeds and they will manifest according to the Universal Law of Cause and Effect because "as ye sow, so shall ye reap". The Divine Law reflects back what we release into It.
Affirmative Prayer is a powerful method for setting the Creative Process into motion. It is a direct, focused, and organized method using five steps to manifest your desired outcome.
