When Prayers Manifest

When Prayers Manifest


You know, prayers are not always paid out in one lump sum.  Sometimes they come to us in a payment plan.  Little by little our prayers will continually manifest.


Several weeks back I found myself at Barnes and Noble Booksellers for no apparent reason.  I really had no idea how I even came to be inside the store, but I knew that there had to be a reason.  There are no coincidences in life; everything is an opportunity waiting to be discovered.


I thought to myself, “Since I’m here I might as well grab a cup of coffee.”  Then I was inspired to act.  I decided to go out to my car and bring in a copy of “The Apostle’s Recipe for Happiness.”  My thought was to take a picture of it on the shelf in order to help with the manifestation process.


I walked over to the Christian section of the bookstore, placed it on the shelf and took two photos.  As soon as I took the last photo a women passed in front of me, placed an inventory tag to the left of my book and entered my ISBN # into the store’s inventory device.  A bit at a loss as to what I should do next; I chose to leave the book and exit the store.


About a week later my wife and I stopped at Barnes and Noble to see if the book was still there.  I noticed that it was listed on the B&N website as being in stock at the Smithfield branch.  It was on hand at the store too so I decided to make the purchase.  I figured the realism of purchasing my own book from the store and having a receipt for the purchase would further increase the power of the manifestation.  Therefore, I made the purchase and headed home.


A few more weeks had passed since that day.  I never really gave it much thought since then until I had another inspired thought.  My thought was to post the picture of my book on the shelf and the photo of the receipt on my Word press blog.   I also wrote this, “I could not resist purchasing my own book at Barnes and Noble Booksellers. That is as real as it gets! The power of intention and the strength of manifestation all on one tiny slip of paper. Thanks Guys! The power of the reader is awesome!”


I then took a ride to take care of some errands.  After I was finished I randomly decided to swing by the office to check the mail.  This was not in my itinerary.  I pulled into the lot, walked to the box and pulled out a letter from Barnes and Nobles Booksellers.  It stated, “In order to make your title, The Apostle’s Recipe for Happiness, available to any of our customers who ask for it, we want to stock your book in our distribution network.” 


God’s hand is blessing us continually.  His guidance is pushing us forward and presenting us with many opportunities to facilitate success.

In faith alaways,
