THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING BY NORMAN VINCENT PEALE.. CHAPTER.. TRY PRAYER POWER PAGE 43 TO 46..

A man opened a small business in New York City a number of years ago, his first establishment being as he characterized it, a small hole in the wall.. He had one employee. In a few years they moved into a larger room and then into extensive quarters.. It become a very successful operation...

This man's methods of business as he described it was  to fill the little hole in the wall with optimistic prayers and thoughts,, He declared that hard work, positive thinking, fair dealing, right treatment of people and the proper kind of praying always get results... This man who has a creative and unique mind worked out his own simple formula for solving his problems and overcoming his difficulties through prayer power....
IT is a curious formula but I the Author have practiced it and personally know it works (speaks The Author of the book) not me Writing this article..But of course I,m On It As Well...

THE FORMULA..

1) PRAYERIZE 2) PICTURIZE 3) ACTUALIZE

By Prayerize.. What is meant here is a daily system of creative prayers
When a problem arose he talked it over with God very simply and directly in prayer.
he conceived God as all hearing and a close friend. He took seriously the biblical injunction "pray without ceasing"
 if i summarize here
he made his prayer an obsession.... constantly ...

The second point in his formula of creative prayer is to picturize..... The basic factor in physics is force...... The basic factor in psychology is the realizable wish.. The man who assumes success tends already to have success..
People who assume failure tend to have failure...... WHEN EITHER FAILURE OR SUCCESS IS PICTURIZED IT STRONGLY TENDS TO ACTUALIZE IN TERMS EQUIVALENT TO THE MENTAL IMAGE PICTURED...
