This Thing we call God is a self-existent singularity of consciousness fueled by the energy of Love, and created all things through a process of self-contemplation of Reality and Possibility. You are an aspect of this God-stuff and so am I. When you allign yourself with the qualities of God and contemplate possibility, you co-create with God. The speed of creation is determined by the intensity of emotion behind your belief.
Asking for something in prayer is better than not trying at all, BUT on one level it is proof that you do not yet fully believe in God if you do not think God ALREADY knows your desires (and you ARE doing yourself a favor by "asking" in that you are clarifying your mind). Better: Know that what you desire is RIGHT NOW REAL in MIND or CONSCIOUSNESS (other names for God), then seat yourself in the feeling of the experience of having or using or being the thing you desire -- this brings on the emotional fuel to rocket you forward).
Through this entire process, and especially afterward, couch yourself in Gratitude -- the only fully legitimate form of prayer. When moved to do so, meditate. This is how you get feedback from God. ACT!!! Only action proves you believe. There are NO miracles and NO supernatural. I hate to have to break the news, but Nature is Super enough already and so NOTHING is too good for you or anyone else.
YOU ARE ALREADY AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WORTHY.
Remember: This is the Physical World, the BEST of ALL worlds. Here, time MUST be a function of three dimentional space as no two "things" can be in one place at once. Therefore, be patient. All things much happen, be, evolve, etc. according to Scientific Law. It might be possible to CHANGE Scientific (Godly) Law with enough believe, or to find a HIGHER SCIENTIFIC LAW that supercedes the one that seems to be an impediment to something new. SO DON'T GIVE UP.
All things are possible in THE MIND OF GOD.
Meanwhile, I'm gonna check on how the Southern Baptists are eviscerating Mitt Romney's Mormonism. LOL!!! Those God-hating Republicans (not all of them) sure do know how to cannibalize each other.
Then I'm going to Riverfest here in Wilmington, NC. A great time is promised to all!!! http://wilmingtonriverfest.com/
