Someone wrote to ask why using The Golden Key apparently didn’t work for him. He said he followed the instruction and changed his words to reflect his thinking only of God. However, he also said that he spent a lot of time in between his Golden Key times thinking and talking about his problems. As Emmet Fox wrote in The Golden Key, “Stop thinking about the problem and think of God instead.” This means to think of God only.
The Golden Key was apparently not working for this man because he was mixing this mighty prayer action with negative diatribe about seeming problems. It doesn’t work that way.
Some people will “try” The Golden Key, but also spend time talking to anyone they can get to listen, about their problems. This doesn’t work, either. The Golden Key is scientific prayer, and as Emmet Fox has said, it is the only kind of prayer that brings real answers. That is because when you pray scientifically, you get your mind off of apparent problems and difficulties and put it squarely upon God. I once heard Rev. Eric Butterworth say, “When people know God as well as they know their problems, they won’t have the problems!”
This should give you a clue to getting your prayers answered. God in you, where He has always been, and always will be, IS the answer to every prayer.
A woman who was having quite a time with a difficult person, learned and turned The Golden Key as she followed the instructions. She paid attention to her thoughts and words, without trying to make things turn out as she thought they should. Praying scientifically in The Golden Key way, she was amazed at how the other woman’s attitude changed and she was more loving and positive. They eventually, became best of friends. That is the way when you truly turn The Golden Key.
If you have a worrisome person or situation in your life, devote one day to genuinely turning The Golden Key. Do it again the next day. Do not be concerned with results. Allow them to come on their own.
Especially through the rest of October, make it a personal intention to turn The Golden Key. Look for opportunities to do so. As you do, you practice the Presence of God, and you enjoy peace of mind, are happier, healthier, and you receive all the other wonderful blessings of God. Every time you turn The Golden Key, you help to lift the consciousness of our planet. – Lovingly, Rev. John

Golden Keys to Answered Prayer …
When you pray for yourself, knowing that God is the only presence and power in you and everywhere present, be assured that you are one with everyone else who is doing the same as you. Where two or more are together in prayer, God is there. Healing is happening.

If you are driving on a road with beautiful scenery, unobstructed by signs and billboards, chances are, you’re on the wrong road! The closest to perfection a person ever comes is when he fills out a job application form. – Stanley J. Randall
At the side of the road a woman looked helplessly at a flat tire on her car. A kind man stopped and helped her. After the tire was changed, the woman said: “Thank you. Please let the jack down easy. My husband is asleep on the back seat.”
