LoA is a slippery slope. Be careful, by walking that path you can end up losing more than you think. The LoA does seem to work opposite for some, and this was proven with scientific testing. Creation is very powerful, and respect/knowledge is a must.

Absolutely! (But pray for what others may need)

All effective prayers eventually boil down to "Thy will be done."

Re: do not pray for what you NEED...
An interesting topic OP.

Gratitude for what we have is a virtue we all need to develop more of. Interestingly, the more gratutide, in the way of giving thanks for all that we have, actually brings about more blessings to for us.

Perhaps having gratitude keeps us in a positive state of mind & when we are generous & give to others, it completes the circle of giving & receiving.

Agreed OP! God knows what you need and if you are sincere, and pray for others, God will provide for you. Just my thoughts. BTW, I'm not what is often spoken in this forum, "a Christard"!

The prayer of St. Francis of Assisi.

Look it up if you do not know it.
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith Yahweh, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Elohim, and they shall be my people.

It's not useless. I bet today of all days more than a few parents are thanking our creator right now for what they have..their children and aren't concerned at all as to things they might need. It's a good day today and everyday to be grateful and thank our creator.

Interesting. Do you have any links?

It would kinda make sense to me. It seems that good things happen to bad people and bad things to good people. Those who screw people over seem to get ahead fast. I'm still trying to figure out the laws of the universe. There is something deeper we need to pay attention to. And the simple law of attraction does not work like the movie "secret" promised. Of it did, there wouldn't be so many books and shelters out there selling more law of attraction gimmicks.

Re: do not pray for what you NEED...
blackcat Here's all you need to know.

Luk 11:1 ¶ And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

Luk 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

Luk 11:3 Give us day by day our daily bread.

Luk 11:4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

Yes, the Secret is oversimplified commodified mass market garbage to make consumers feel good. But just like organized religion, there are grains of truth amongst the bullshit.

The reason LOA often works in opposite manner is because most people can only focus on their LACK of what they want rather than the feeling of ABUNDANCE that will attract their desires.

Even then, reality is more complex than any system can teach. Simply wishing for something is not enough.

The bible was edited by kings, so they they could rule their enslaved masses with ease. I wouldn't give too much weight on the bible. Especially because most of the time there is a contradiction on the same fucking page.

Re: do not pray for what you NEED...
The law of attraction has been in the public domain for at least 100 years. True, only a handful of people were aware of it. And then the movie "the secret" comes along to pad the pockets of smart business men.

Either way, us little people are NO better off since the movie. People are still scrambling trying to figure out what and how to use the Laws of the Universe. The only people benefiting from the laws of the universe are the "insiders," and they ain't gonna tell us sheep how the game gets won.

Therefore, the movie was just a diversion from a bigger truth.

Just focusing on (and feeling) abundance doesn't make you abundant.

Please understand that not everyone is a Christian. There are other religions who fully understand the concept of gratitude & generosity.

I hope this thread can remain open for all people to share their ideas on this subject without turning it into a "religious" thread......that would be so nice, & I for one would be "grateful".
