What is this man writing about? God makes prayers come true, not man! Well, this is true. And there are some things that God leaves to us, like making our prayers come true, especially if we have prepared them correctly.
You see, God has created orderly universes. Now with all that order around, do you honestly think that God prefers vague, unformed prayers to those whose originators took the time and effort to do their homework, understand what it is they want above all else, exactly and precisely what the cost in time, money and responsibility is involved in not only obtaining it, but in keeping it? Which product do you prefer? One whose manufacturer put it together slap-dash, with a coating of sleaziness, or one whose manufacturer used good quality materials in fabrication, and engineered it to last many years, as well as be easy to maintain and simple to repair if need be?
Well, I don't know about you, but I prefer the latter to the former. I do not mind paying more for something I know will last longer, be easier to maintain, and perform it's designed function with a minimum of fuss.
I have the sneaking suspicion that the grand Spirit of the Skies has similar ideas. I have observed that a well thought out prayer, properly formatted if you will, gets answered a lot sooner than one which is sort of slapped together and thrown at God.
What I am trying to say is that when you want something, so intently that everything else becomes secondary, isn't it astonishing how soon you get it? I mean it just seems to solidify out of thin air around you! Oh, not actually, but all those strange coincidences that take you hither and yonder, willy-nilly it seems, and suddenly --BLAM! You almost seem to fall over it!
To put the picture into better focus, let's define emotional desire as coin of the realm. Money in the bank, so to speak. So here is God, running a mail order house. The proper format for a prayer is the order blank.
Now if I send an order into the warehouse, saying I want a new shirt, no, make that a pair of pants, or on second thought maybe a new jacket, or perhaps a nice watch, what do you think I will get by return mail?
I know what I will get. I will get a nice note from the stockroom gal asking me to please use the catalog, and write down the quantity, stock number, color, size and the item that I wish. Because she cannot send me anything until she knows exactly what it is I want. (God uses lots of personnel in his mail order business.)
So what is the way to get your prayers answered, quickly and accurately? Well, first, make up your mind what it is that you want. It has to be important to you, more important than anything else. Nothing can prevent you from having it, and you are willing to do whatever is necessary to gain this object. Oh yes, this method works better with material objects than with immaterial ones or with people. It is true that you can program or pray people into or out of your life, but it is easier to become clear on the circumstances and physical/mental/emotional characteristics you want that someone to have, than it is to pick someone and pray them into love with you. Doesn't work that way.
So, OK. Here we are with the size, shape, color, stock number (so to speak) and item description. What is the next step. Well, are you sure?
Just how sure are you that you really want this in your life? Have you really looked at the investment in energy, money, time etc., etc., that this will require? If that doesn't faze you, continue on. If all that is part of the fun of having this, then comes the next step.
Say you want a motor boat, or a camper. Never mind all your "reasonableness" about why it will save you money, etc., you are only fooling yourself. Justification is all right, if you like to play that game, but that Sky Spirit knows the truth. You want it because you want it, and you have decided that it is what you want more than anything else. So there!
So you have decided. The process started the instant you decided. Now comes the rest of it. You surround yourself with the idea of it. The process, as I am sure you are already aware of, just that you don't know you are aware of it, is to find just the RIGHT boat. It may be brand new, it may be used, it may be twin-engine or single, it may be an antique that has to be completely gone over. No matter.
Out comes magazines, pictures, adds, going to the marinas, looking, feeling, wanting. Maybe you have noticed that quite frequently something appears in miniature before it appears full sized? Maybe you buy and build a model of it, or just buy a model, or someone has a model in their home or office. No matter, when you see that, you know the big one is on the way. Don't give up now and change the order! As you surround yourself with the images and feelings of having this boat, that weird ol' Sky Spirit somehow manages to make that boat find you!
What you have been doing, is praying. Praying in the way that tells God and the Universe, this is what I want, and nothing else, for right now, and then God has something solid to work with. Solid emotional desire, solid images, so that the object can become physically solid in your presence and possession.
Now this little bit about praying someone in love with you. Well, sometimes it works, but mostly, you are NOT the answer to THEIR prayers. Ever think about that? The way it works best is to get very honest with yourself about things that can be very clearly imaged.
Love cannot be imaged. Only the circumstances of love can be imaged. And you had better understand this! Also, you had better image them having the same image of love circumstances that you do! Sure you can image up face, figure, speech patterns, intelligence levels, humor, etc., etc., but if you cannot define the exact set of circumstances in which you feel loved, and feel that that you are loving, you will get something else.
Get honest about sexual things too. Get honest about how this someone will react to sudden, unexpected things, and how you want to react to their reactions. Very important. Write all this down. Also write down all the things that you consider as being extremely important NOT to have around.
Here is the key. Remember, what you do to show being loving is what they want and need in order to feel being loved. Conversely, what they do to show being loving is what you want and need in order to feel being loved. Make a list of everything you want and need in order to feel being loved, and then make a list of what you do to show being loving. These lists need to be studied, modified, studied again and again, until they become a totally automatic thought process. Congratulations, you have now made a love prayer!
Don't dwell on them, practice seeing in you day dreams, this person and you reacting to something sudden, unexpected, and do not be afraid of running through a few unpleasant things, because just as sure as you are still breathing, some unpleasantness WILL come up. It is how the two of you interact and deal with it that can turn it into an adventure!
This is the way. This is the path. This is one of the things God wants us to learn. We can control much of our circumstances, more and more of it as we learn. You see, God cannot help but love you. You are that part of God, being physical, therefore what is your desire, is also God's desire for you.
