“Our gift is free-will. This simply means that we can choose our thoughts; for you can not choose a feeling, or an action, without thinking first – or without choosing to think. Our only decision from one moment to the next is what thought to place our attention on. Focused, concentrated attention to our fondest wishes defines any prayer – and we all have the power to choose when and where to focus our attention.
Consider that when you pray, all you are doing is concentrating your thoughts for a brief period of time – usually to give thanks, and ask for help for yourself or someone else. What if you concentrated for more than a few moments? What if you chose to spend time thinking about what you wanted instead of the problems in your life? What if you could learn to not worry about things you cannot change or control? Choose better thoughts and your life will change for the better. All thought is prayer; all prayers are answered – so choose your thoughts wisely!”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
