“Belief underlies experience. Prayer is an experience. Prayer is simply thought; and if you have a thought that you believe in, you will soon experience that thought as a reality of some sort. You will see an answered prayer. When we see so many things in life fall into categories that could just as easily be explained as prayers being answered, as anything else, why not pray for everything you could ever want? You can certainly take whatever other practical steps you intended to take, but why not pray if it could bring you the answer you seek, and maybe even save you some time and energy?
Sure, we stand in church and pray, and may even say a prayer at dinner; but if we really believed in prayer, and understood what prayer truly is, we would spend a lot more time doing it, and have much more peaceful and fulfilling lives as a result. We are apparently missing an important part of the picture, however. Are we so unwilling to believe that our thoughts create our reality, that we aren’t even willing to experiment with some committed, positive thought for a change?”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
