Creative Prayer: The Miracle Road (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 5) by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Creative Prayer: The Miracle Road (Scholarly Articles, Vol, 5)’ is a selfhelp essay representing a witness report of a prayer technique the author uses successfully since more than twenty years. The method was first outlined in basically two essays by the spiritualists James Allen and Abel L. Allen. James Allen published ‘As a Man Thinketh’ in 1902, and Abel Allen wrote ‘The Message of New Thought’ in 1914.
Next in the development of the method comes Ernest Holmes, founder of the ‘The Science of Mind,’ and author of a book with the same title, which was published in 1922. The book is both a compendium of philosophical wisdom and a practical book that teaches practitioners how to give treatments using the prayer technique. Eventually, it was in the 1960s and 70s that the method really became popular through the books of Dr. Joseph Murphy and Catherine Ponder.
Joseph Murphy called the prayer technique ‘scientific prayer.’ Indeed, this kind of prayer is not founded upon belief, but upon knowledge; it is based upon insights in the functioning of the unconscious as, perhaps first in history, Sigmund Freud described it.
In the present booklet the author explains the technique, explicates what the science of mind is about, teaches with examples how to practice creative prayer, and finally conveys some of the almost miraculous results the prayers have brought about after about three months or practice.
The technique can be used for self-healing, for building high self-esteem, and self-confidence and for bringing about a lasting state of inner peace.
And there is more. There is one aspect of the technique that Joseph Murphy did not mention in his books, and which is why the author came to call the technique ‘creative prayer’ in the first place. The technique namely also enhances literary, visual and musical creativity—and very powerfully so.
The book comes with a complete Glossary and Bibliography.
