Feeling so free to learn and make mistakes while creating this site. I’m trying to pollute the earth with real positive uplifting news and share relevant uplifting quotes.
Do we ask for what we already have?
The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, – a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love.
God is love. Can we ask Him to be more? God is intelligence. Can we inform the infinite Mind of anything He does not already comprehend?
Who would stand before a blackboard, and pray the principle of mathematics to solve the problem? The rule is already established, and it is our task to work out the solution. Shall we ask the divine Principle of all goodness to do His own work? His work is done, and we have only to avail ourselves of God’s rule in order to receive His blessing
The Divine Being must be reflected by man, –else man is not the image and likeness of the patient, tender and true, the One “altogether lovely. But to understand God is the work of eternity and demands absolute consecration of thought, energy, and desire.
How empty are our conceptions of Deity! We admit theoretically that God is good, omnipotent, omnipresent, infinite, and then we try to give information to this infinite Mind.

The talents He gives we must improve.”
To suppose that God forgives or punishes sin according to as His mercy is sought or unsought, is to misunderstand Love and to make prayer the safety-valve for wrong-doing.
Jesus uncovered and rebuked sin before he cast it out. Of a sick woman, he said that Satan had bound her. He came teaching and showing men how to destroy sin, sickness, and death….His rebuke was fearful…Get thee behind me, Satan. Jesus’ reproof was pointed and pungent. He taught and demonstrated man’s oneness with the Father, and for this, we owe him endless homage, he established no ritualistic worship.
The truth commands sure entrance into the realm of Love.
“Consistent prayer is the desire to do right”
Prayer to a corporeal God affects the sick like a drug, which has no efficacy of its own but borrows its power from human faith and belief. The drug does nothing because it has no intelligence.
It is a mortal belief, not a divine Principle, or Love, which causes a drug to be apparently either poisonous or sanative. The drug does nothing because it has
