NOTHING CAN RESIST MY PRAYER

IT WAS DURING one of my lecture tours on the healing power of prayer when I was in a town called Boma, in Democratic Republic of Congo. The evening I arrived, at about 9:00 p.m., I realized I was sick. I had to lecture the next day in that town. I had all the symptoms of malaria—high fever, headache; I became weak, and I was shaking. Malaria is a common sickness here in Congo, and I have seen many people with this disease. In fact, it is one of the most common diseases in this tropical region. So I knew from my experience that these were the symptoms of malaria. Since I have seen malaria healed through prayer many times, I decided to pray in order to get rid of all those symptoms.

My first step in praying was to realize my purity—to see that I'm pure because I am the image and likeness of God. Therefore, sin or disease never has the power to separate me from my divine purity. That is what I usually begin my prayer with—the clear concept of my purity. This prayer includes my understanding that my senses are spiritual, not material, and that divine will, not human will, governs me.
