“Whatever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.*” You must believe that. When devotees go to the Tarakeswar Temple in India—famed for miraculous healings effected there—and think and strongly imagine that God will heal them, He does. Instantaneous cures are the result. When your prayers or wishes are not successful, it is because you have no will, and you have no faith. If with a doubting mind you ask God to heal you, you won’t be healed. Or if you meekly ask, “Lord shall I have a hermitage by the Ganges? I know it is impossible, but I would like to have it,” God says, “You can’t have it.” But if you say, “I am going to have it; I shall be just like a bulldog that won’t let go,” and then use your will to work toward that goal, you will succeed.

* Matthew 21:22

—Paramahansa Yogananda, “The Mind: Repo
