The Prosperity Prayer: 8 Weeks to a New Belief in Yourself

June 19, 2011

Prayer is a powerful mechanism for manifestation. For me, prayer is a way to open up my own mind to what needs to happen, and therefore put into place the steps that make it happen. I was raised to believe that we were all one with God, that in fact we were God. So when I pray, it is to the Universe, including me and my role in that Universe.

For the next 8 weeks, I am dedicating my Contemplative Money column to Lynn Robinson’s Prosperity Prayer, published in her book Real Prosperity:Using the Power of Intuition to Create Financial and Spiritual Abundance. This prayer created a turnaround in my life, at a difficult time, and I believe it will do the same for you, if you commit to reading it daily:

Dear God —

I surrender my financial affairs and concerns about money to your Divine care and love.
I ask that you remove my worries, anxieties and fears about money, and replace them with faith.
I know and trust that my debts will be paid and money will flow into my life.
I have only to look to nature to see proof of the abundance you provide.
I release all negative thoughts about money, and know that prosperity is my true state.
I commit to being grateful for all that I now have in my life.
I learn to manage my finances wisely, seeking help where needed.
And finally, I ask you to help me understand my purpose in life and to act on that purpose with courage and strength. I know that prosperity will come, in part, by doing work I love. Please help me use my skills and knowledge to be of service in the world.

Thank you, God.


The prayer has 8 lines. My next 8 posts will examine each of these lines as a way to helping you feel the power that lies in each phrase. If you commit to saying this prayer daily, preferably out loud, you may be amazed at the hidden money that comes your way.

Wishing you peace and abundance,


Notes from Ingrid’s call:

Effortless and easy to get them. Remember that I am looking for the RIGHT people. That’s why I can be authentic – Because I’m only looking for the people who I can actually help. Not salesy – more me – authentic.

A complimentary consultation that sells without selling.

12 minutes – she is still talking about what she is going to do.

The complimentary call – most people make it a regular coaching call, thinking that if they give enough value, that people will hire them as a coach. Not.

You are going to INVITE them into the coaching program at the end of the call, and ask them if this is OK with them.

Complimentary consultation – NOT free coaching session.

The 10 questions:

1. What is their vision? What do they see in their minds for themselves and their business? We all want to be seen. We can’t see what our potential is. So help them see their vision within what I do, so you can help them see how they are going to get there. Then they are ALREADY SOLD, because they are emotionally attached.

2. What are their dreams? Where do they see themselves. Different from their vision. Vision – what is the end result. Dream – I’d like this car, this house, etc. (Still not sure I get this…)

3. What is the result and outcome they are looking for? Most coaches and consultants miss this question. So if you show them this, you start to sell yourself.

4. What do they really want? They may say they want to make more money, but what they really want is to be famous, to change the world…

5. What is their pain and struggle? You really have to go in here. What is their pain and struggle in what they want. The pain might be that they don’t know what to do next. Maybe they are procrastinating, maybe they don’t take action. (So you need to show them that they need help.)

6. What is the gap between where they currently are and where they want to be? Remember that this person has raised their hand and said they are interested in what you have to offer.

7. What holds them back from reaching their dreams and goals? You have to show them that what you offer is going to help them from not holding back

8. Are they coachable? Is your prospect/client coachable? Are they going to take my advice? Can they model what I say and do? Are they going to take action? Don’t say yes until you know this is a client you are going to adore?

9. How are they going to do this alone? It’s very hard to admit you need help, to admit that you are stuck. They need to really feel that you are there present and genuine for them.

10. Are they really committed to their own success. On a scale from 0 to 10, how important is reaching their goals and visions in the time period you are going to be working with them.

By the time you get them to say yes to the 10th question, then they are really saying yes to themselves.

They are going to feel trust and authenticity.

The 5 things you have to talk about if you want to close the sale.

1. Your own credibility and your authority. Share some client stories that are authentic.

2. Share your method or system of what you do. You need to say, “During our coaching, we’re going to be…”

3. Get them to take action and make a decision. Set a date and get their CC information. (she uses a contract that they must return.)

4. If they are not ready, then you need to set a date on when they are going to get back to you.

Signs of difficult clients – you should say no to these people:

1. Late getting on the call.

2. Going to the bathroom.

3. If they get defensive or aggressive.

4. They can’t take feedback – they interrupt, etc.

BE QUIET! And let them speak, so they talk themselves into your product or service.

Truly see them.
