Prayer Way to Health, Wealth, and Happiness (Unity Classic Library), The
The eldest son of Unity cofounders Charles and Myrtle Fillmore was raised in an environment of affirmative prayer, so it was natural that he would write about prayer as a means to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. The thirteen sections of this book are based on Truth affirmations Lowell Fillmore compiled from experience. He called these affirmations "gadgets," which he found valuable in meeting everyday problems involving health, prosperity, and human relationships. A fourteenth section contains Lowell Fillmore's reflections on the Lord's Prayer.This is a practical book, offering a commonsense approach to problem solving through prayer and the activity generated by listening for answers to our prayers. In the foreword Fillmore writes: "If I address a prayer to God but keep my attention on the problem, I am going to run into my problem and keep running into it as long as I keep my attention upon it. My need is to fix my attention upon the omnipresence of God's goodness so that I will run into that heavenly condition."In the section called "Using Divine Substance" he continues: "When we give or express life we increase our capacity for living. When we express wisdom we grow wiser. When we love we increase our consciousness of love. When we are joyous we increase our joy. When we exercise our strength we grow stronger. Our labors and our experiences in the material world should help us increase our inner, spiritual resources."
