In faith, we pray giving thanks in advance that the Universe is meeting our every need.
Unity uses "affirmative prayer." Rather than begging or beseeching God, this method involves connecting with the spirit of God within and asserting positive beliefs about the desired outcome. Affirmative prayer is the same method of prayer Jesus taught when he said, "So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" (Mark 11:24).
Affirmative prayer reflects the certainty that we are each being led to our highest good, despite any temporary appearances. Metaphysicians believe that thougths transmit magnetic energy and this energy attracts other energy of the same frequency. Whether you are conscious of it or not, your thoughts are transmitting energy that is attracting more of the same. When you remain focused on your intentions, you will draw those things into your life.
