From the Handbook of Positive Prayer by Hypatia Hasbrouck:

“Faithful use of (daily prayer) benefits us greatly because (it) helps keep our conscious thoughts positive and in harmony with the activity of God. We expect good experiences and relationships, speak and act in ways that brings them about, and look for the good that underlies apparently negative situations. Yet, as positively as we may consciously think, speak, and act, we have challenges. Jesus said they would come when he told the disciples, “In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Whatever other meaning we can discern in these words, one meaning is that the teachings of Jesus equip his followers to meet successfully the challenges of earthly life. He taught them to deny power to the evil they might encounter and to affirm Truth, God’s providing and protecting presence.”
