Prayer becomes effective when you do not pray for anything! That is the basic law of prayer. Anyone can receive answers to prayer as long as they will release themselves from human desires for personal good or personal gain.
It is trying to make a “house of merchandise” of God that interferes with prayer, asking for food for me or for you – or asking for clothing or housing in spite of the Master’s teaching that you shall not pray for what you shall eat or what you shall drink or wherewithal you shall be clothed – that you shall not take thought for things.
When you pray, pray only that the Kingdom of God be revealed to you. Pray that the will of God be revealed to you. Pray only that God’s Grace reveal Itself within you and let that prayer result in whatever form of good is within the realm of spiritual Grace.
