Later this year I’ll be releasing a new book titled, The Secret Prayer.

It will reveal a three-step formula for attracting miracles through right prayer.

Prayer is a way to activate the Law of Attraction by requesting an intention and inviting inspiration.

In researching, I’m reading really old books, such as Prayer: The Forgotten Secret, from 1906, and really new books, such as Healing Words by Larry Dossey and Draw the Circle by Mark Batterson.

From what I can see, prayer has been around since the beginning of time.

But as we all know, they don’t always seem to work.

So what’s the secret to having a prayer deliver?

Let’s look at incorrect prayer first:

First, I don’t think most people actually believe their prayers. They pray without any real belief that anyone is listening or anything will happen. They simply “toss” one to the sky, like a stranded person on an island throwing a note in a bottle into the ocean. They hope someone picks it up. Then they hope someone acts on their plea.

Second, desperation is the other problem. Most prayers are just begging. People pray for help, solutions, miracles, healing, money and more. But when they pray, it’s often because they don’t see a way out and are pleading for intervention.

Third, most people don’t take action. This is a common thing in the world of metaphysics. People think their praying is action, when it’s really an action, but not the entire blueprint to results.

Again, prayer is a way to activate the Law of Attraction by requesting an intention and inviting inspiration.

So what’s the right way to pray?

“When you put yourself into the state of the wish fulfilled and think from it, you are praying, and in a way your reasoning mind does not know, your wish will become a fact in your world. You can be the man or woman you want to be, when you know how to pray.”  – Neville, The Right Way to Pray, 1967 lecture,

Subliminal and Audible Prayers

Subliminal and Audible Prayers

First, begin with a spirit of gratitude.

To me, this is the core issue. If we all felt more gratitude for what we have, even the things we complain about, we’d shift our focus, our mind, our thoughts, our energies, our spirit, our direction, our action, and more. Gratitude for the now is the number one way to begin any prayer. When you sincerely do it and feel it, you can stop with this step, too. It’s that powerful.

Second, requesting rather than begging is wiser.

After all, we don’t know the big picture or the whole story. Begging for a certain outcome is an ego trip; it’s pretending we know it all. We don’t. We barely know a tiny percentage of what is happening in our personal world at any one time. A wiser approach is to make a request but acknowledge that something better may be more appropriate. End requests with the phrase, “This or something better.” This step requires faith.

Third, acting on the insights, inspiration, intuition.

We co-create results. The Higher Power (God, Divine, Universe, etc) works through you, not for you. When you see an opportunity, seize it. When you receive an inspiration, act on it. You are the missing ingredient in most results from prayer. The famous joke about the man who prayed to win the lottery but was reminded to buy a ticket, is good to remember.

“Prayer is the effort to bring the human soul into tune with the Infinite.” – W. J. Dawson, Prayer: The Forgotten Secret

My book will explore all this and more when it comes out later in the year. For now, I wanted to give you a crash course in prayer.

If you really want your prayers answered, then follow a proven formula:

1. Be grateful.

2. Detached request.

3. Inspired Action.

Try it today and note the difference.

Expect Miracles.

    Dr Vitale,
    I learned quite a few things when I was inspired by colleagues to watch The Secret. I have always been a big fan of prayer. I have found, as with The Secret, not to ask or make requests when I pray. I start with everything I am grateful for and continue with all the things that are coming to me. This way I am able to use imagery within my prayers. It’s extremely powerful and I work on it daily. Best wishes on your new book!

    I’ve gone through most of the inspiration things which we feel around us and see and stated as miracle and yes i have used it in my life, yes definitely it works but i need your help in some of the other matter of my life which i need to overcome i.e. my love life – I had break up with a guy we were not in touch for 1 year & when we came in touch i flt something will work again and i always wanted to be part of his life but nothing went right & he got engaged.
    I’m really hurt but i want to see him happy always but don’t know why every now n than i have intuition of his breakup with his fiance. I actually feel he’ll come back to me, we’ll be again together but it feels very weird…feeling nervous about this situation. i m not able to recognize weather my intuition is correct or not, feeling depressed. I really want him to come back can you please help me in any way of using power of prayers or power of subconscious mind ? Please sir if at all you can help me, please, please… hope of help

    Thanking you

    • August 19, 2014 at 8:28 am

      Hi Neha. I’ve replied to this kind of question many times. You can’t ask for a specific person. That’s a violation of their free will. But you can focus on the qualities you like in the person and allow the Universe to bring you a better match. Keep the faith and honor yourself with love. -joe

    Hi Joe,

    First, I love my life and am so thankful for everything in it (good and bad). I’ve learned that things go much smoother and this existence is much more fulfilling when I appreciate everything in it and learn from the things and people that I invite into it (good and bad). I’ve learned that, in part, from you and I love you for that! Thank you.

    I am looking forward to this next book.

    We’d also like to meet with you at some point. We don’t live far and my husband wants to see your guitar collection! 😉

    Praying, in many cases, is a private and singular inter
    action between an individual and his/ her creator. The
    prayer for strength of purpose, strength to cope or prayers
    for such common desires as peace, tranquility or contentment
    are common.

    The prayer for things of this world: money, status and material enrich
    ment I believe are generally fruitless,because of the obvious self serving intent in such prayer.

    I also think that people pray in all different states of mind, in good times and bad. I also do not think that anyone should make
    money off of such a delicate and personal issue, particularly someone
    who can suggest he can help get my prayers answered.

    Kindly accept my sincere gratitude for all the inspiration that you gave me through your books and videos. Its an honor to get connected to the proponent himself.I happen to stumble on one of your promotions at Facebook which landed me here, helping me interact directly with you. I am overwhelmed.Law of Attraction does work.

    I must acknowledge the deep impact that you have made to my life, from being neck deep in debts, dead broke to a person who now have the courage to take on the world.Its only your words those have made the difference. I want to become like Dr. Joe Vitale or Better. Sir, I want to share the stage with you someday and become as fantastic author as you are, thereby making indelible positive changes everyone’s life. I have started writing a book on the effect of Yoga for manifesting success using Law of Attraction and I would like to send the manuscript before publishing for your kind suggestions. I need your blessings Sir. I understand that you are more connected to universe than me as of now and so I would request you to pray for me as well. My prayers be heard through you.

    Wishing astounding success for your upcoming book and looking forward.

    Here is a prayer that I use daily. It has helped me in many ways. It helps me to break down resistance and ALLOW those wonderful things to happen with me and for me. I got this from an Abraham – Hicks video:
    “I acknowledge that there are universal forces that are focused GOD. I acknowledge I am the object of your positive attention, and I am appreciating your continual gaze on behalf of my well being, and, today no matter where I am, no matter where I am going, I will find you. No matter who I do it with, I will be conscious awareness, that you too are there with me appreciating me, supporting me, assisting me, acknowledging me, supporting me, assisting me, guiding me, having fun with me, inspiring me, guiding me, helping me, uplifting me, showing me, ……….”

    I love this prayer because it sets me to ask for what I want from a space of knowing that I am completely supported and guided to this or something better in it’s place.
    God’s Love and Blessings unto You!

    Dear Joe,
    I am so glad you chose this topic for your next book. Prayer is my favorite topic. My life has been filled with answered prayer and LOA situations my entire life. It is the trusting (Faith) that the answer will come that is so difficult for most. It requires a “letting go” of the problem or request and trusting that the answer will come in divine time. Sometimes that answer comes at the 11th hour, sometimes it is something better than we asked for. It can also appear that our prayer was not answered but in reality what we asked for was not what was meant to be. God (The Universe) had a much better plan in mind for us. The trick is recognizing and trusting The Universe.
    Prayer has been around forever but the art of Answered prayer has eluded most. Thank you, I look forward to reading your latest book this Fall. Namaste’

    As far as I can remember I was using LOA as a child without knowing it. At a young age you have a strong believe in what you want and you’re not asking but affirming to anyone that you’ll get it. and it always worked for me. At 9 yrs old I was telling that when I’ll be 20 I was going to have twins a boy and a girl and that I’ll have 6 children in all.
    Today I’m 44 I have 6 children and my twins Alysson and Chris are 24. I’m happy with my life and most of all I am grateful to live the life I always wanted.
    This is just one of so many things that LOA brings to me !
    No I am not rich or successful in a career cause that was not my dreams.
    Now I have new goals ahead and I know without any doubt that I’ll reach them pretty soon.
    Thank you Dr Joe Vitale for all the work you achieved helping those who have a hard time to understand what is in reality the simplest thing in the world. 🙂

    Once my husband was unemployed, my salary was very small, we had gathered more debt at home. And I’m prayed every night that my husband find some money we can pay for utility services. In a month, miracle happened: my husband found on the street, just the amount that we had to pay for utility services. He paid the debt, then came home and told me the story. Later I understood: the main word in my prayer was “to find”. Actually, I was thinking that he will borrow money from relatives, friends, but it happened as I prayed: my husband found the money. It is very important to use the right word in a prayer, because what you ask, that you will give.

  30. August 20, 2014 at 10:22 am

    The power of “right” prayer is something I continue to witness in my own reality. In the past, prayer was something I did when I needed something. Today, prayer is something try to consciously do, just to stay in harmony with the essence of Life. When I first heard Dr. Joe and others speak on gratitude, my logical mind wondered how could such a common word have any power.

    But then I started to put it into practice. The first thing I began to notice was an increased body-vibration. I found that the more I practiced praying, or being grateful in the present moment, the more energy I started to harnes. My every prayer started to be answered in the form of inspiration, wisdom and ideas that I started to take action on in order to bring into fruition. And other times, the manifestation would literally appear right in front of me.

    I realized that gratitude allowed the spirit, God, the Univesres to work freely through me as Joe stated.

    After meditating for an hour a day for three years, a book called “How to Think for YourSelf” began to write me. Many of the “controversial” things that keep us living a limited Life was revealed to me. I was afraid to publish the book at first, but after overcoming my own fears, it was released on the Amazon and Barnes & Nobel platform.

    With that said, Dr Joe has a way of getting straight to the core of what’s holding us back. His piercing awakened eyes are hypnotic and will cause you to see something inside of yourself that you’ve never seen before.

    For anybody looking for a modern day spiritual warrior, I recommend Dr. Joe Vitale. His words has the power to awaken you to a new world if you are ready to be awakened.

    Peace and unlimited love.

    As a student of yourself and Steve G Jones I am an avid reader and information sponge. I love what you have explained here and it makes great sense as a 3 step formula. Whilst I am a mindful practitioner and Law of Attraction Practitioner I still find it hard to always trust in prayer I guess. But anyway, I am praying for the fact that my 7th book is a massive success. Thanks to you and the works of other great authors whom I have studied I think that my latest work should help the world as it is from my heart and for each person personally!

    Thank you for writing about prayer. It’s huge and starting with gratitude is monster huge.

    The wonderful thing about prayer is the journey. You are correct in that we mostly pray for answers for results and are desperate. How interesting when our prayers are answered, some times way later, and the journey we take before our prayers get answered.

    For me, the exciting part yes is the prayers being answered, but even better is the sweet journey we get to experience as our prayers are answered or not answered. This is the wonderful gift.

    Joe truly, I’m so grateful for you. I’ve read your book Attractor Factor 3 times and it has changed my world. Recently I moved back to Austin and just know one day I’ll run into and be able to shake your hand and thank you personally.

    In gratitude,


    PS. BTW…one of the prayers I had been praying for was how to know, understand and be part of the harmony that God has created. Interestingly, I’ve discovered that gratitude and love is the greatest of all.

    P.S.S. I’m on the email newsletter signup for The Secret and really enjoy the words Rhonda gives.

    I was an academic student and I really done my very best to have the best grades as possible but I couldn’t pass one test… in two attempts, like most students, even older than me. So I had to repeat this subject (demography) in next year. In next year I had so many basic for my year subjects, it made me too tired to be present additionally on demography so I was only on 2/15 demography lectures… but two weeks before exam I prayed for pass demography like I were absolutely crazy, I prayed every day, during whole way to university and to home, during every free time, I prayed even when I was sleep, absolutely like to pass demography could save the whole world. Because of how much we have to learn, I could learn to demography only one evening before exam. On exam I knew only one correct answer (abcd test with 34 questions) and everything beside it I had to guess… And I received grade A, when for example one of my fellow student, from my group, needed 7 attempts to finally pass demography and after it, she put the photo of destroyed demography textbook on Facebook because she was so frustrated and anger.

    Thank you Joe for the Secret Prayer. I just recently completed the Law of Attraction Basic Practitioner course and got certified. Endless months of studying your and Dr. Jones material paid off. Time to get the ball rolling now. With all the info, affirmations, webinars etc. I feel I can do anything. I would love to put a book or an app together with all the affirmations and positive quotes of read over the past few months. Click your phone app, start your day with a positive affirmation as well as end the day with one. I currently work at a 45 day in patient facility for Drugs and Alcohol. I feel like one of your Miracle coaches helping clients out with my experience strength and hope, not just from LOA but as a recovery alcoholic myself (Feb 2nd, 2006). Although I have not received a raise in 2 years and they really don’t think much of my new Certificate in LOA, I am grateful for everything. Thanks again and keep on writing:)

    This is a great blogpost

    And yes…its all about gratitude…gratitude…gratitude

    But one thing puzzles me…..I know its ok to ask some you know and close to pray for you….

    But I see too many people in the comments asking Dr Vitale to bless them and to pray for them…

    I am sure he gets too many such requests….and he made even make a general prayer for humanity, but I am sure he is too busy to begin making individual prayers for everyone who asks

    And also…it seems to me that if you are always asking people to pray for you, you are giving your power away

    After, The Creator of us all is All Hearing, All Seeing and All Knowing

    He can hear you when you seek and ask. I have always said…you cant outsource your success

    Which means you cant outsource your prayers either

    there are many things in life that we have to live out ourselves and be present in the moment for it

    So start by being grateful and asking The Creator yourselves

    When you think others have more spiritual power than you, thats how cults are formed

      We are all spiritual being. When you believe their is a creator of universe who is greater than you then it makes your spiritual journey easier.
      Prayer is an effective way of communicatiing with heaven.
      There need to be active mtual relationship between you and your creator before your communication pathway can be open

      So if we have no faith, no relationship, not sure of who to pray to, what to pray for and be expectant that he is able to deliver then no need to bother.

      so i will say develop quality relationship
      open communication pathway
      believe he is able
      dont be a begger but a son
      be greatful for gift of life
      make a bold request and be expectant; he will do it. – Matt 7:7-8

    When my father was diagnosed with cancer last year, I began to pray in a way that I never had before. The prayer technique I used was inspired by advice given to me by Dr. Janeen Detrick from your Miracles Coaching. She explained the importance of holding the image of my father in complete wellness, thus never adding to his suffering. She also emphasized that because we share a collective consciousness, I could heal my father through my prayers and beliefs.

    Every night in prayer, as Neville Goddard might put it, I “assumed the feeling of the wish fulfilled.” I prayed as though I were my father, and I prayed from a place of profound gratitude for having already received the desired result of a complete return to wellness. It sounded like this “Thank you for the healing of my bladder. Thank you for the healing of my lymph nodes. Thank you for my complete return to wellness. Thank you for the miraculous news of my healing.” I felt the desired outcome with every pore of my being. I prayed night after night.

    Six months ago, my dad was told he had 2 to 5 years to live, that he would never be able to have his nephro tubes removed, that once the cancer spreads to the lymph nodes it’s too late. Today, all of his lymph nodes are cancer free, he no longer has nephro tubes, and there is but only a bit of cancer remaining in his bladder. His doctors are amazed at his miraculous recovery. I am amazed at how powerful our prayers and beliefs can be.

    As you put it so beautifully Joe, we can “heal anything”. I am truly grateful for you! Your life and works have led to so much growth in my life! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

      Rebecca, this is a great story of love, healing, faith and more. Thank you for sharing it.

    Oh yes, love this – thank you! I also love the story of Honi the Circle Maker, how he boldly prayed and called down rain during a severe drought. He prayed for the rain of God’s favor, grace and blessings and got a perfectly proportioned sun shower. Today, we had thunder, rain and beautiful sun showers.

    Hi Joe, check out a series from Liquid Church, at he website above. It is a contemporary non-denominational church in NJ that I attend and all services are video taped and kept at this site. Last fall they did a series called the God Box based on Mary Lou Quinlan’s book. However, it goes further to describe the power, pattern and persistence of prayer. The series kicked off with Dr. David Ireland who wrote the praying warrior and teaches how to win your battles through prayer! I think you will really enjoy Pastor Tim Lucas and this particular series. Thank you, I love you and am very grateful for your guidance and awareness.

    Hi, Joe…I heard a nun several yeara ago, on the radio program now called On Being, describe how the Desert Fathers had said that you must pray first for your enemies before you pray for anything for yourself or your family, etc. Otherwise, your prayers will be for naught!

    It never ceases to amaze me that in asking the divine a question and three times this past year I was lead to you Dr Joe Vitale. 1st H’oponopono 2nd The Miracles Coaching Program and 3rd this right here and these answers were by far better than I had imagined it to be. This just goes to keep proving to me that when you follow that inner guidance it will always lead you down the right path. The question I had actually asked myself two weeks ago when I attended a church function was, “Do these people really know how to pray?” and this book “The secret prayer” is on it’s way….wow. I love it…and there’s another one of those miracles again. Thanks a billion!

    Joe, I think your wisdom about prayer applies directly to making financial decisions. It can help people feel very committed to the insurance or investment product they are buying. Thank you.

    Dear Josef
    My name is Alina. I’m from Russia.

    I’ve read two of your books for now – Ho’oponopono and Awakening Course. I’m not your fan (yet), but your words are too close to my mindset and very useful for me, so I think I’ll become your follower or adept (choose relevant 🙂 finally.

    Now – more to the point. I have a question about Dalai Lama.

    WHY and WHAT FOR Dalai Lama “broadcasts” SUCH DESTRUCTIVE statements:
    “We have bigger houses but smaller families:
    We have more degrees but less sense;
    more knowledge but less judgements;
    more experts but more problems;….”

    and so on… I’m sure you know this text, but at the end of this letter you’ll find all of the quote. Just in case.

    Whether Dalai Lama risks, sounding such thoughts?
    Whether millions of people picked up this thought as an undoubted truth? Of course – Dalai Lama is a proof source for millions!
    Didn’t they assimilated it as a nonconscious attitude?
    And whether they – his followers – cranked the mechanism of realisation of this statement (with their faith in it)?

    Isn’t it? Or I’m wrong?
    What do you think of it?

    Whether everything we say starts just immediately or very soon even if it didn’t exists before saying?
    Whether when we say “bad things” we “broadcast” destructive and negative energy for the world around?
    Whether we “feed” destructions or make them become material and real when we talk about them too much?
    If I anderstand your books right, you speak just about it.

    So in this paradigm of thinking, Dalai Lama did a disservice to all the people who repeat these words, making them real… No?

    End of the Dalai Lama’s quote:

    “……more medicines, but less healthiness.
    We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
    but we have trouble crossing the street
    to meet the new neighbour.
    We build more computers
    to hold more information,
    to produce more copies than ever,
    but we have less communication.
    We have become long on quantity
    but short on quality.
    These are times of fast foods,
    but slow digestion;
    tall man, but short character;
    steep profits, but shallow relationships.
    It is time when there is much in the window
    but nothing in the room.”

    you’re absolutely right, for a long time I have the desire to take a course on the law of attraction, but do not want to do it by anyone, I have chosen you joe vital or Bob Proctor, the problem is that I do not have the money to travel and do not know to speak well in English. A few months later I received your email for certification LOA, I was afraid of the price and also do not understand what there is written, I was afraid the exam .. but in the end it was not what I asked for?
    a few days ago came the same email asking to do the course LOA to a special discount just for a few days … I have not had time to have to listen to my fears, I felt a force that pushed me to take the course. in 7 days .. I read everything and made ​​the first examination, I do not know how it goes if I said for better or worse, because of the difficulty with the English language. The important thing is .. I have done what I asked for and I’m happy!

    Dear Joe,

    I totally love this article and you really describe the 3 most important tool of manifestation and this is what people miss usually in their pursuit of manifestation.

    They only ask and do wishful thinking and if at all practice gratitude do it half-heatedly. Just practicing gratitude for 5 minutes everyday can increase someones happiness by 25% just in a month.

    And most importantly Let It Go and Inspired action. I am happy that I am practicing it all and teaching it also.

    Thank You

    Hi Joe,

    Here’s another great older book on prayer. It’s called How To Use The Power of Prayer written by Harold Sherman.

    I highly recommend it.

    Powerful tip: Do EFT while repeating hoponopono at the same time.
    Do this while thinking about gratitude and healing and playfully thinking about what fun it would be to receive and to give. Do this and you will feel buzzed and more alive than ever before, all the while taking action! I call it LOA. Law Of Action!

    Good day Joe and thank you,

    As you say prayer is just like the steps discussed above.
    I remember being born, and the space in which we come from, are always connected to and carry on with as we evolve.

    That space when we are praying. Focused. Inside of ourselves. Where we know who we really are. Is the place to come from. There are many layers to the world of spirit. The All that is, the angels, the spirit animals, the energy beings. And all are rooting for our evolution in this time. To effectively bring heaven to earth.

    It is an amazing time to be alive, in the middle of a miracle.
    Just a little note to all. To remind them, that yes they are worth their dreams coming true, and to take it farther and see the world where our children’s dreams may also come true.

    Love and light your friend and supporter

    (pray for 3 days or 3 hours straight)

    Holy Spirit, You who make me see everything and showed me the way to reach my ideals, You who gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget the wrong that is done to me and You who are in all instances of my life with me, I want to thank You for everything and confirm once more that I never want to be separated from You no matter how great the material desire may be. I want to be with You and my loved ones in Your perpetual glory. Amen

    In Jesus Christ, your Son’s name, I ask that you grant me (State your specific request or intention here!)

    While making the request, you must promise either:

    (a) To publish this prayer or
    (b) To circulate the favor
    This prayer should be said for 3 consecutive days. After the 3rd day, the request will be granted, no matter how difficult it may be.

    Hi Joe,

    First I must say that:
    Chatelle from your group sent me an e-mail requesting my permission to publish my comment and of course I want you to use my name and country Canada, QC, Drummondville.

    I just love the secret prayor as it is not long and it works. I never tought I would say that so fast: Last night as I was listening to your secret prayor I placed into the prayor that I wanted somebody to invite me to go into a road trip and how happy I was. Well, this was last night and this morning pretty early, I received a phone call inviting me into a road trip. I was amazed! and it is not all, you mentioned in the secret prayor that we have to feel gratitude for everything we have (I thought why not giving it a try as it worked for the invitation to take the road, so maybe this will work as well : which I did all day today and guess what : I did the most wonderful trip we can ask for and I was even offered supper before we came back. We went to Mount Tremblant which is about 250 km from where I live and I felt lots of gratitude for the beauty of the mountains into that area and the great weather and everything (to mention only a few). Well the driver made a small road mistake to go, longing the trip for 1:30hr more and when we came back of 1:00hr more but to me it felt as if it was NOTHING because I felt blessed with all the gratitude I’ve given today. FOR ME, GRATITUDE IS NOT A WORD TO BE FORGOTTEN ANYMORE, BUT TO BE KEPT AND USED ON A DAILY BASIS, AS I MUST SAY THAT IT WORKS AND IT IS THE TRUTH.
    As you say at the end of the secret prayor: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Joe for opening my eyes, my hears and my brain
    to that wonderful prayor. Now I will get everything I want. YOUPPI!
    Keep the good work!

    You can use my comment as I just discovered what the word blessed means and I will never thank you enough = gratitude!
    (I am so happy that I had to tell you right away).
