Through a true communion with God, argues the author, it is possible to treat any and all problems-from loneliness to envy to gray hair and even bad investments. But the prayer that Rawson speaks of is based not upon supplication to an omnipotent being who may or may not be listening, but on a simple process of denial and affirmation.
Using an exhaustive list of examples, Rawson shows how to first deny the problem, then affirm what he calls "the absolute good." It is only by dwelling on "God's perfect world" that one can find true healing. This is essential reading to the faithful, and a work of genuine curiosity to everyone else.
British engineer, businessman, and author FREDERICK LAWRENCE RAWSON (1859-1923) also wrote How to Bring About Permanent Peace (1916), Secret of Divine Protection (1918) and Nature of True Prayer (1920).
