AFFIRMATIONS & TREATMENTS
"A prayer treatment is a form of prayer based upon right thinking, namely thinking of God the Good. A vehicle through which healing is achieved." The principle of treatment, states Emmet Fox, is to "stop thinking about the problem and think only about God's perfect world." A treatment deals first with states of mind, then with the situation or condition to be healed. Dr. Fox gave these examples - "The source of all good is established within me. I am filled with the life of Spirit. I give thanks for a healthy, joyous and peaceful life . I now realize the presence of God within me. I am growing and unfolding every day." This type of prayer is called Treatment. Dr. Fox said, "silent prayer is more powerful than audible prayer, because by silent prayer the mind comes closer to creative Spirit. (Emmet Fox's Keys to Life and Health)
In the Golden Key, Emmet Fox wrote: "If you are thinking about your difficulty, you are not thinking about God. Your object is to drive the thought of difficulty out of your consciousness for a few moments at least, substituting for it the thought of God. At first it may be difficult to get your thoughts away from material things. But by constantly repeating a statement of absolute truth, such as, God is guiding me now, however mechanical it may seem, you will soon find that the treatment has begun to "take" and that your mind is clearing." He emphasized, " Do not try to think in advance what the solution to your difficulty will be. Leave the questions and ways and means to God." (The Golden Key)
An affirmation is a positive statement of Truth.
Treatment ~ “In thee 0
! Lord! do I put my trust,” for I know that in my real being dwells all power
and might. As a pilgrim soul, I look to those eternal verities which are there.
I know that they are at my command. I know that God has given to my being all
that God is and has. From this great and glorious storehouse I can draw
sufficient for my daily needs. I know that thou wilt never fail nor forsake me.
By: Ursula N. Gestefeld - Writer, teacher, Healer - published in 1897
~ “Today I am reborn spiritually! I completely detach myself from the old
ways of thinking and I bring Divine love, light, and truth definitely into my
experience. I consciously feel love from everyone I meet. Mentally I
say to everyone I contact, "I see the God in you and I know you see the God in
me." I am reborn spiritually now, because all day long I practice the
Presence of God. No matter what I am doing, whether I am walking,
shopping, or about my daily business, whenever my thoughts wanders away from God
or the good, I bring it back to the contemplation of His Holy Presence. I
feel noble, dignified, and God like. I walk in a high mood sensing my
oneness with God. His peace fills my soul."

Treatment ~ “God is fully present here with me, now. God is the only real Presence, all the rest is but a shadow. God is perfect Good, and God is the cause only of perfect Good. The same fountain cannot send forth both sweet and bitter water. God never sends sickness, trouble, accident, temptation, nor death itself; nor does He authorize these things. I am divine spirit. I am a child of God. In God I live and move and have my being; so I do not fear. I am surrounded by the Presence of God and all is well. I am not afraid of the past; I am not afraid of the present; I am not afraid of the future; for God is with me. The Eternal God is my dwelling place and underneath are the everlasting arms. Nothing can touch me but the direct action of God Himself, and God is Love.." By: Dr. Emmet Fox. Written in 1931
~ “God in the midst of me is mighty. He guides and governs the thoughts of my
mind, the feelings of my heart, and the acts of my life to establish joy,
health, and bounty in my life and my world." By: Ernest Wilson.
