It is said by some...
This badge reflects a "fact" that is both true and false for me personally! It does seem, when I really, really, really need my prayers to result in me getting what I want or need (funny how wants come first, LOL) that prayer fails me the largest majority of the time! Looking at this logically I have to ponder why bother with prayer at all and for me it has become a habitual action that, like a drug addiction, I cannot quit even if I want to! In previous blog posts on this My Vision Board Online I reference never giving up and staying focused! This can be very difficult to do when you pray so hard and for so long only to see no results!
Every time I think about "giving up" on prayer I have a flash of the image above and the fear of being so close to what I want and need manifesting I always choose to stay the course! For me prayer works under a unique condition that I cannot always create or maintain! The condition is "MAKING A CLEAR CHOICE OF WHAT I WANT OR NEED AND NEVER ACCEPTING NO AS THE ANSWER, SO MUCH SO THAT I PRAY DAY AND NIGHT UNTIL IT MANIFESTS" as this is harder than it may seem! When I have done this though amazing things have happened! As I work to change my life I know that I must stay the course!
In the mid to late 1990's I prayed and asked GOD to send me a book that would give me a better understanding of who he was. Amazingly GOD led me to a book by Neale Donald Walsch titled - Conversations with GOD - and I love books 1 thru 3! In these books GOD gives real answers to many questions most people have and suggests that we "keep choosing the same thing over and over until our will becomes manifested" and to "stay focused and centered" so these words stick with me and keep me going! Really, emotions aside, we have nothing to lose and everything to gain by praying diliently for what we desire until it manifests!
