How can my prayer be fullfilled?
While we were returning to the first room, our Chief asked if a desire could
be fulfilled as soon as it was expressed. Our hostess answered that if the desire
were put forth in true form it would be fulfilled. She then went on to say that
desire is but a form of prayer, that it was the true form of prayer which Jesus
used, as his prayers were answered; that prayer which is always answered must be
true prayer, therefore must be scientific and, if scientific, must be according
to fixed law.
Continuing, she said. "The law is 'As you know, your prayer is granted,' and
'What things you desire. when you pray. know you receive them and you shall have
them.' If we know positively that whatever we have asked for is ours already.
we may know that we are working in accordance with the law. If the desire is
filled, then we may know that the law is fulfilled. If the desire is not filled,
then we must know that we have asked amiss. We should know that the fault with us
and not with God.
"Then the instructions are, 'You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your
heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.'
Now go deep, deep down within your own soulónot with forebodings, fear, and
unbelief, but with a glad, free, thankful heart, knowing that that which you
stand in need of is already yours.
"The secret lies in getting the at-one-ment; getting the consciousness of it
and then holding firmly and never deviating, though all earth should oppose.
'Of myself I can do nothing,'said Jesus, 'The Father that dwells in me, He
does the work.' Have faith in God. Have faith and doubt not. Have faith and
fear not. Now remember there is no limitation to God's power. 'All things
"Use positive words in making your request. There is naught but the perfect
condition desired. Then plant in your soul the perfect seed idea and that
alone. Now ask to manifest health and not to be healed of disease; to
express harmony and realize abundanceónot to be delivered from inharmony,
misery and limitations. Throw these off as you would discard an old garment.
They are old and only outgrown things; you can afford to discard them joyfully.
Do not even turn to gaze upon them. They are no-thing ó nothing.
"Fill the seemingly blank spaces about you with the thought of God,
Infinite Good. Then remember the word God is a seed. It must grow.
"Leave the how, when, and where to God. Your work is merely to say what you
want and to give forth blessings, knowing that the moment you have asked,
you have received. All the details of this bringing forth is the work of
the Father. Remember, He does the work. Do faithfully your part; leave and
trust God's part to Him. Ask. Affirm. Look to God for what you want;
then receive God's fulfillment.
"Keep the thought of God s abundance always in mind. If any other thought
comes, replace it with that of God's abundance and bless that abundance.
Give thanks constantly, if need be, that the work is done. Do not go back
again to the asking. Just bless and give thanks that the work is done,
that God is working in you, that you are receiving that which you desire,
for you desire only the good that you may give out the good to all.
Let this be in silence and in secret. Pray to your Father in secret, and
your Father who sees the secret of your soul will reward you openly.
When the demonstration is complete, you will look back upon the time
faithfully given as one of your greatest treasures. You will have proved
the law and you will realize the power of your word spoken in faith and
blessing. Remember that God has perfected His plan. He has poured out
and is continuously pouring out, lovingly and lavishly upon us, all good
and every good thing that we can desire. Again He says, 'Try Me and see
if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out such a blessing
there will not be room to receive it.'
