I'm not sure why you think he'd want to get you a BMW. Maybe you read a different book.
It's from Philippians 4:13. While 2 of my items are materialistic, some of the things people might write down are not. For instance, someone could be battling against cancer, or trying to save their home, or trying to stop drinking or doing drugs, or building a new life, and so on... For them, a powerful affirmation where they call on someone like Christ (or Buddha or Muhammad for the non-Chrisitans) could be of real value.
