Production or Pipeline? My Responsibility in Prayer

If you were with me last Sunday, you remember I talked about our responsibility in our affirmative prayer (Spiritual Mind treatment). We pray affirmatively, rather than begging, beseeching and hoping for the best, because Jesus said, “Anything you pray for and ask, believe that you will receive it, and it will be done for you.”

After we say “amen” (or “and so it is”), what do we do? Do our minds remind us of all the reasons why whatever it is couldn’t possibly happen for us? Do we help God (Spirit, the Universe, our Higher Power) by running down the list of the ways that our good could come to us, thereby limiting the possibilities? Do we take responsibility for the creation of whatever it is, or do we just work to clear the pipeline so it can come?
