Dr. Murphy prescribed this prayer treatment for a businessman with anxiety.
The businessman said every time he would pray about prosperity, success or greater wealth, he would start to worry about money, his business and the future, and that it was wearing him down.
Dr. Murphy said the businessman had quiet sessions with himself, where he declared this prayer solemnly:
“But there is a spirit in man, and the inspiration of The Almighty giveth him understanding.
The Almighty Power is within me, enabling me to be, to do and to have.
This wisdom and power of The Almighty backs me up, and enables me to fulfill all my goals.
I think about the wisdom and power of The Almighty regularly and systematically.
And I no longer think about obstacles, impediments, delays and failure.
I know that thinking constantly along this line builds up my faith and confidence, and increases my strength and poise.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of love, and of power, and of a sound mind.”
