Pray Without Ceasing ~ Believe That Ye Receive Them

“The answer to prayer is not according to your faith while you are talking, but according to your faith while you are working.

You cannot impress the mind of God by having a special Sabbath day set apart to tell Him what you want, and then forgetting Him during the rest of the week. You cannot impress Him by having special hours to go into your closet and pray, if you then dismiss the matter from your mind until the hour of prayer comes again. Oral prayer is well enough, and has its effect, especially upon yourself, in clarifying your vision and strengthening your faith; but it is not your oral petitions which get you what you want. In order to get rich you do not need a “sweet hour of prayer”; you need to “pray without ceasing.” And by prayer I mean holding steadily to your vision, with the purpose to cause its creation into solid form, and the faith that you are doing so. “Believe that ye receive them.”

Are we to have faith that IT’S ALREADY DONE or faith that IT WILL BE DONE?
I have a question about the last page of the chapter, “Thinking In a Certain Way”. Once we have the mental image clear. Do we pretend that it’s also here with our eyes open throughout the day as a child pretends on Halloween to be the character he or her chooses or do we visualize with our eyes closed twice a day and when out of that visualization simply hold to the faith that it WILL form on the physical plane?
