Looking for a way to dissolve troublesome situations or deal with difficult people? “Golden Key” them!
This month, we are celebrating the 42nd anniversary of the founding of Golden Key Ministry-Unity. You are invited to join in the celebration by giving special attention to turning the Golden Key this month.
The purpose is to bring your attention to the practicality and efficacy of turning the Golden Key. It is simple — Turn away from seeming problems and turn to God. In other words, STOP thinking about a problem and think about God instead.
Eric Butterworth said, “When you know God as well as you know your problem, you won’t have the problem!”
A good question to ask yourself: “Would I rather continue suffering, being anxious, worrying, being angry, or would I rather have peace of mind, be free and happy?”
Too often, people, even when they know better, will give a lot of thought to an apparent problem or difficulty. They pour over every detail believing this will bring about the solution. It never does. The less you think about a seeming problem, and the more you think about God, the easier it is for the problem to be solved.
When you focus your thinking on a problem you step out of the flow of life; out of the Presence of God. No problem was ever solved by human effort alone. The Great Problem Solver, God, knows and is the answer to all apparent problems. In God, problems do not exist. There is only love, wisdom, peace and good.
Someone might say, “This is all well and good, but you don’t know MY problem!” Their implication is that their difficulty seems so severe and immense, that only a miracle could solve it. Well, turning the Golden Key is about as close to a miracle-solving action, you will ever find. Often, when someone turns the Golden Key, they are amazed at how quickly and well something works out.
An interesting story:
I really worked The Golden Key this week and on Thursday was contacted by my lawyer in Florida….she told me that she was just out of court and that the outstanding warrant against me had been dismissed!! This was after originally telling me that it was probable that I would have to go down there to be processed through The Pinellas County Jail!! Coincidence? I don’t think so!! – Thanks again, Al
When you turn the Golden Key, do so honestly, faithfully, and completely. Doing it half-heartedly is not effective. Do not mix in fear, doubt, or negatives. Practice the presence of God, only and you will experience the relief, healing, harmony, peace of mind, and abundance you desire. Do not go back and forth thinking about the problem and then thinking about God. Stop practicing the presence of a problem — practice the Presence of God, and the seeming problem will disappear into the nothingness from whence it came.
Faith is the key. Place your full faith in turning the Golden Key. Believe what you are doing is producing desired results. Discover how simply wonderful turning the Golden Key really is. Would you like to give something worthwhile, if you have children? Teach them to turn the Golden Key.
The true way to know God is to practice His Presence. Doing this is turning the Golden Key. Even though you may have read the Golden Key pamphlet before, read it again. Give special attention to doing as Emmet Fox instructs. Discover the way of peace of mind, health, wealth and happiness. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone turned the Golden Key? What a happy, healthy, harmonious, peaceful and prosperous world we would have. Namaste!
– Rev. John
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up quickly. – Isaiah 58:8

In faith, I turn the Golden Key – Turn away from problems and turn to God. God is the Answer.
Golden Keys to Answered Prayers …
A good way to get your prayers answered is to ask others to pray with you. Together, you draw upon the great healing, enlightening, prospering energy of God. It magnifies and multiplies the power! Ask Golden Key Ministry-Unity to pray with you. We love doing that. When you ask us, or anyone, to pray with you, remember to do your part. Praying with you means that you open yourself to and are receptive to the spiritual energy of Divine Love streaming toward you. If you are given an affirmation, declare it faithfully, and mediate on it in the Presence of God. You expect something wonderful to happen, and believe it is happening now. It is happening in you. It is the light and energy of Divine Love flowing in and through you.

Prayer for House Answered! – Thank you for praying with me for the right house to rent. Right now all I can say is, Hallelujah! As I was browsing the web looking for a 3 bed-room house to rent for myself and my family, the lady with whom I have been staying with, happened to be looking over my shoulder. She asked if I wanted to rent the one I am staying in since she was moving out. I was literally floored and silently thanked God over and over! By accepting this house, I helped her make a major decision to move, and she is now preparing to do that. I will take over the house the first of next month. Thank you immensely for answered prayer. You are the best! Please continue to pray with me for plenty of money to decorate and to take care of all expenses. God bless you! – Virginia
