God’s Not a Cosmic Bellboy!

I spend a lot of time talking to people about creating their futures and manifesting their destinies. More and more we also get into the topic of petitionary prayer.

Unfortunately we often have to do a bit of de-programming. Some of the popular accounts of prayer and also of the Law of Attraction seem to promise people that all that they have to do is pray or visualize and God/The Universe will cough up whatever they want.

It doesn’t quite work like that!

Once they understand the underlying principles, they usually start to make rapid progress.

Depending on my audience, I sometimes like to use this quote:

“God is not a cosmic bellboy for whom we can press a button to get things.”         

–Harry Emerson Fosdick (American Clergyman, Writer and Broadcaster, 1878-1969)
