Your Invisible Power by Genevieve Behrend

16 Suggestions As To How To Pray Or Ask, Believing You Have Already Received

Five o'clock in the morning is the best time to go into this sort of meditation. If you will retire early every night for one month, before falling asleep impress firmly upon your subjective mind the affirmation "My Father is the ruler of all the world, and is expressing His directing power through me," you will find that the substance of life takes form in the moulds of your thoughts.

Do not accept the above suggestion simply because it is given to you. Think it over carefully until the impression is made upon your own subconscious mind understandingly. Rise every morning, as was suggested before, at five o'clock, sit in a quiet room in a straight-backed chair, and think out the affirmation of the previous evening, and you will realize and be able to put into practice your princely power with the realization to some extent, at least, that your mind really is a center through which all the creative energy and power there is taking form.

Scientific Prayer:

The Principle Underlying Scientific Prayer

In prayer for a change in condition, physical, mental or financial for yourself or another, bear in mind that the fundamental necessity for the answer to prayer is the understanding of the scientific statement:

It should never be your endeavor to take possession of the mind of another. Remember that it should never be your intention to make yourself believe that which you know to be untrue. You are simply thinking into God or First Cause with the understanding that -

"If a thing is true at all, there is a way in which it is true throughout the Universe." Remember that the Power of Thought works by absolutely scientific principles. These principles are expressed in the language of the statement:

"As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he."

This statement contains a world of wisdom, but man's steady recognition and careful application of the statement itself is required to bring it into practical use.

Remember that the principles involved in being as we think in our heart are elucidated and revealed by the law

"As you sow, you shall reap."

Remember that your Freedom to choose just what you will think, just what thought possession you will affirm and claim constitutes God's gift to you. It shows...
