We talked in yesterday’s post about writing affirmations. And of course many people pray for things. So here’s a question for you…
Do you think you receive things from God or the Universe, by virtue of your prayers? What do you think when you hear a basketball player being interviewed after he sank the crucial basket in the championship game and he says that God made the ball go in?
Isn’t that something that God took time out from fighting mudslides, floods and earthquakes to make sure that Southern Cal beat Stanford? Or that Manchester United beat Real Madrid.
Do your religious beliefs include praying to a supernatural power, which rewards you by virtue of your plea? If so, do you think people who pray better get more? Do I get rewarded more, because I am a good copywriter?
“I’ve wanted a red Lamborghini since I was twelve years old. Which is why I’m contacting you…”
I ask, not because I’m here to ridicule your religious beliefs, but to have you question them. If you see yourself as a hopeless, sorry sinner, who must prostrate yourself before your creator, that would certainly influence your prosperity consciousness, wouldn’t it?
I pray and make affirmations, not for my God, but for myself. I pray for others as well. In fact, I have a whole prayer list that I go through twice each day. When I signed all those prosperity maps for people, I also prayed for their manifestation.
Yet I don’t believe that because someone puts their dream home on a map, and because I hold that vision, that this is going to influence God to grant their wish.
So why do I do it? And if you pray, why do you do it? Please share your thoughts below, and we’ll pick up there on the next post.
