You Need To Put Your Mind Into It
God answers your prayers, He gives you what you want, to the degree that you BELIEVE you can have it.
If you believe you want something but have a feeling of dread or scarcity every time you think about it, you are stifling the power of your prayer.
In fact, you are killing it.
Your request is flawed, since you are wanting it, and fearing having it, simultaneously.
It's like ordering a pizza then, in mid-delivery, you order for a burger instead...then ask for the pizza again...then figuring you are actually craving for some beef stew...then wondering why your order is taking so long to come.
It's at that point that most usually stop believing in God.
Not because God doesn't your answer prayers, but because you lack the persistence and consistency of seeing your prayer through until the end.
By "until the end" I mean until your request is fulfilled.
Until your prayer is answered.
"What you believe, in prayer, you will receive."
"Believe and succeed."
"Whatever the mind can conceive, and believe, it will achieve."
What then of the person who wants something so deeply but doesn't believe she can have it?
That is where daily affirmations come in...
