“Praying for three minutes at bedtime doesn’t undo an entire day’s worth of negativity, but it is a good start. Praying for three minutes at the end of a day of positive thinking and acting, however, is even better. Every moment of thought adds to some future moment; and you have the freedom and ability to choose what thought you will contribute to your future reality. Learn how to use this tremendous power – and then use it. Your whole life will change for the better.
If you are not religious, don’t worry; praying doesn’t require you to start acting like an evangelist, or a “Bible-thumper,” or any of the things that may have turned you away from church. You don’t even have to be a Christian or believe in the Bible in order to pray and be heard. I realize that may sound controversial; but Jesus wasn’t preaching the Bible – and He wasn’t a Christian. The Bible you know didn’t exist then; and the people He taught already had a set of their own beliefs and religious texts – the same belief systems Jesus grew up with.
Jesus was teaching techniques for effective thinking and living – new ways of looking at and THINKING about those teachings which were ancient even in the time of Jesus. Jesus was teaching ways to make old teachings produce new fruit – simply by changing the way you think about those teachings.”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
