Unanswered Prayers

Our prayers are always answered, but often God, or the Universe, knows what is best for us better than we do. Sometimes we are very sure that we know what we want, and what we want seems very important to us. Later in life, however, often we look back at those desires and wonder why they seemed so important at the time, or question why we wanted them at all. For example, in high school there may have been a boy or girl that we would have given anything to date. If only I could be Johnny's girl friend or Sally's boy friend. Later we look at Johnny's face on a wanted poster or hear about how Sally's life turned out and wonder what we ever could have been thinking.

Consider the distinction between affluence and riches. Affluence is a state of mind. I can perceive affluence regardless of my external circumstances. The Universe responds favorably when I request affluence. I receive the feeling of having everything I need. Sometimes I actually receive earthly riches. Always, I receive a satisfied feeling with whatever the Universe deems is best for me. Whether I receive financial gain or not, I truly receive affluence.

Whenever you turn to the power of prayer or to the "Law of Attraction" or to the power of intention, consider making your request more general and less specific. Ask for health, inner peace, love, and affluence, rather than asking for fewer wrinkles, a trip to Hawaii, a hot date, or a new car.

I wanted to write books and became an accountant. I wanted to sing and became a dancer. I wanted to be free and fell in love...
I prayed for wisdom and have no riches. I prayed for health and have no beauty... and I still believe in the power of the prayer because all were answered. You are right, sometimes not the way we want it but the way the universe deemed best for me. I'm so grateful.

I used to pray to win the lottery, until one day, when someone asked me, "And what do you think that winning the lottery will do for you"? I answered that I thought it might give me security, comfort, and peace of mind. My friend then suggested that I pray asking for those things instead of asking for the money. It was one of the best pieces of advice I have ever received!

I also use to think that money and comfort was the way to go , but not now I would pray to help just one person who needed it know matter who they are and give them a hug.

This is an excellent source of "grounding" for my spirit, soul and mind. I hereby make my request known to GOD for affluence!

We make a living by what we do. We make a life by what we give. A blessing will only be a blessing to us if it also blesses someone else.
