6 Outstanding Lessons I Have Learned About Prayer from Robert Collier’s Book: ‘PRAYER WORKS.’

Published

on

Robert Collier (1885 – 1950), was one of the best American Authors of the self-help industry. He primarily wrote about desire, the psychology of wealth, confidence, and almost everything related to self-help information. Some of his books sold more than 200,000 copies, and today he is still respected for his expertise in the self-help industry.

I have read almost all his books, but I fell in love with the book: PRAYER WORKS, because in the book, Robert explains how people can use the POWER OF PRAYER to fulfill their innermost desires.

In today’s article, I will explain 6 interesting points about prayer that I learned from Robert’s book: ‘PRAYER WORKS.’

  1. We Don’t Receive the Answers to Our Prayers because we Never Accept Them.

According to Robert, people who pray for a long time but still don’t get the answers to their prayers often fail to accept the answers.

Acceptance means doing the things you could do if your prayer was answered. For example, if you pray for rainfall, you accept the answer if you leave your house with an umbrella even if it’s still hot and sunny. Or, if you pray for money, you immediately stop worrying about the lack of money, and you act rich because you know that the money you asked for, is on the way to your bank account.

  1. We Should Always Pray Early in the Morning

Robert believes that prayer must always be done in the morning because the morning-prayer blesses the whole day. Besides this, he writes that morning prayers enable an individual to have enough strength to deal with whatever life offers him/her during the day.

  1. What You Pray for Already Exists in the Spiritual World

Robert Collier claims that what we pray for already exists in the spiritual world. Therefore, the combination of hard work, prayer, and faith is what brings our desires from the spiritual world to the physical realm.

  1. Prayer is Mental Medicine

Robert teaches that sincere prayer frees the mind from stress because it makes us hopeful. Besides this, he teaches that prayer destroys the mental poisons of hate, jealousy, worry, or fear, because it makes an individual to have a positive perception of life.

  1. Prayer Results in Right Thinking and Right Decision Making

According to Robert, prayer enables us to make the right decision, and take the right action at the right time, because it releases the divine energy stored within us. Also, he writes that prayer helps us make the right decisions as it allows the release of suppressed energies which often take the form of suppressed thoughts, emotions, and feelings.

  1. There is no Specific Place or Posture for Prayer

Lastly, Robert writes that we can pray anywhere we want in any posture. Therefore, no one must tell us where we should pray, or that we must assume a certain posture during prayer.

The Top 5 Amazing Takeaways from Yasmin Mogahed’s book: RECLAIM YOUR HEART

Published

on

Yasmin Mogahed’s book, Reclaim Your Heart, was written to free your heart from slavery and enable you to have a positive perception towards hardships. The book also reveals the importance of placing our hope in God and advises us on how to react when we fall.

Besides this, the book is inspiring and also easy-to-read. I learned several things from the book, and I believe it made me wiser.

Here are 5 remarkable lessons I learned from Yasmin Mogahed’s book.

  1. Pain Warns Us That Something is Wrong

According to Yasmin, pain is a warning that something is wrong and we need to make changes in our lives. For example, heart-breaks tell us that we are too attached to a particular person, and we need to let go of him/her. They force us to make internal changes.

  1. The importance of Hardships

Hardships purify our souls and move us closer to God. They also remind us about the Greatness of God, and how small we are compared to his greatness. Difficulties awaken us from our recklessness and show us where we are heading to. For this reason, we must embrace hardships

  1. Life is a Test

‘The present world is an illusory pleasure: you are sure to be tested through your possessions and persons’ – Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

We must realize that Life is a test that God uses to bring us closer to Him. Besides this, we must see life as a test because this perception enables us to realize that we can learn something from everything that happens to us. Lastly, we must strive to realize how we can pass the test of life.

  1. The Importance of Fasting

Yasmin teaches that fasting enables us to control our soul’s desires because it makes us learn to restrain our physical desires. By learning to avoid eating food while no one is watching, fasting also trains us to avoid indulging in immoral activities when people aren’t watching.

  1. The Definition of Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening occurs when you realize that you had a wrong perception of the world. For this reason, awakening enables you to have a truer and beautiful life. It makes you fully aware and makes you realize that you can do and have anything you want. Lastly, when you awaken, nothing from your past will matter.

I believe these lessons will be of help to you on the journey of life. You are welcome to share in the comment box below the lesson you think is the most valuable.

6 Powerful Lessons From Bob Proctor’s Book: YOU WERE BORN RICH

Published

on

In the article, 16 Powerful and Impressive Quotes from Bob Proctor’s Book, I shared with you my favorite quotes from You were born rich. Today, I would love to share with you the top 6 remarkable lessons I learned from this marvelous book.

  1. Money is an Effect of Hard work

No one got rich through luck because every rich person worked extremely hard to accumulate riches.

Besides this, there is no shortcut to riches, and for this reason, all individuals who want to make big money must be ready to do it the hard way.

  1. The Best Way to Attract Money is Through the Prosperity Consciousness

Always imagine that you have the amount of money you wish to possess. This imagination makes your subconscious mind comfortable with the idea of money hence making it attract the amount of money you desire.

Moreover, imagining that you have the amount of money you desire makes the subconscious mind to formulate ways to bring you the money.

  1. No Amount of Reading Will Make You Financially Successful

Books won’t make you rich because they only provide you with knowledge which is only effective if you practically apply it on the journey to financial success.

  1. Let Go and Let God

Everything becomes possible to those who Let Go and Let God.

To Let Go and Let God means to stop worrying about your future, and trust that you will get everything you need to reach your financial goals. It means trusting that whatever must occur for you to reach your financial goals will happen.

  1. Desire Without Expectation is Useless

Desire is necessary for the achievement of your goals. However, it becomes wishful thinking if not accompanied by expectation.

A strong desire must be coupled with expectation because an expectant mindset prevents negative opinions and ideas from uprooting your goal/dream.

  1. Give Away What You Don’t Need And You Will Get What You Need

Give away the things you don’t need to create space for nature to give you what you need because nature always fills an empty space.

Remember, ‘The Law of Prosperity states that new things only come when you let go old things.’ – Bob Proctor

Therefore, if you want anything, for example, new clothes, just give out all the clothes you rarely wear, and you will soon find yourself with new clothes.

I believe the above lessons will help us attract a prosperous life. You are welcome to add more lessons you’ve learned from life/books that can help us attract prosperity.
