So we pray for one thing and we go out and do another thing. Or we pray for one thing and we go out and think another. Let me give you a good example. We can pray for more enrichment in our lives, or for help with a financial problem. Those prayers are taken seriously, seriously and earnestly addressed to God during our formal, ritual time to pray. Then, for the remainder of the week, we go around thinking about the flaw, saving on the flawed words and demonstrating the flaw in our everyday actions of life. So 95 percent of the time we send prayers that claim we don’t have enough and 5 percent of the time we ask God to bring us enough. The universe is very unlikely to grant us our wishes when 95 percent of the time we are actually asking for something else.

This is the most false aspect of prayer in our human experience. The truth is that the universe is a giant xerox, sending us, all the time, answers to our prayers. And in fact, we are sending prayers to the universe all the time, from morning to night, from birth to death. This immediately empowers and even those who are unwilling to take the responsibility it creates, which is frightening. Only for those who understand the wonderful gift God has given us – the gift of our ability to create what we want – this form of prayer seems inviting. For those who cannot accept this degree of responsibility for their actions, this form of prayer – morning to night, born to death, in the form of their words, thoughts and deeds I – seemingly the worst and most unacceptable.
