Utilizing the Power of Prayer Pray with conviction to manifest noble desires. Excerpts from the writings of Paramahansa Yogananda In the past you may have been disappointed that your prayers were not answered.
But do not lose faith God is not a mute unfeeling Being. He is love itself. If you know how to meditate to make contact with Him, He will respond to your loving demands. To know exactly how and when to pray, according to the nature of our needs, is what brings the desired results. When the right method is applied, it sets in motion the proper laws of God; the operation of these laws scientifically bears results. The first rule in prayer is to approach God only with legitimate desires.
Thou art my Father. Thou and I are One. I am willing to work for it; please guide me and help me to have the right thoughts and to do the right things to bring about success. I will use my reason, and work with determination, but guide Thou my reason, will, and activity to the right thing that I should do. God does not object when you pray from your ego, as a stranger and a beggar, but you will find that your efforts are limited by that consciousness.
God does not want you to give up your own will power, which is your divine birthright as His child. Prayer often implies the consciousness of beggary. We are children of God, not beggars, and are thus entitled to our divine inheritance. When we have established a connection of love between our souls and God, we have a right to lovingly demand the fulfillment of our legitimate prayers.
An unceasing demand for anything, mentally whispered with unflagging zeal and unflinching courage and faith, develops into a dynamic power that so influences the entire behavior of the conscious, subconscious, and superconscious powers of man that the desired object is gained.
The inner performance of mental whispers must be unceasing, undaunted by reverses. Then the desired-for object will materialize. Further Exploration:.
