How can we be sure if prayer works and if it does how effective is it? In this article we will take a deep dive into prayer, my personal experience and my top tips on how to get the most out of prayer.
Let’s start with what is Prayer?
According to the American Heritage Dictionary the definition of prayer is below:
- A reverent petition made to God, a god, or another object of worship.
- The act of making a reverent petition to God, a god, or another object of worship.
- An act of communion with God, a god, or another object of worship, such as in devotion, confession, praise, or thanksgiving.
Written sources and documents show us that prayer was indicated up to 5,000 years ago. Some prayers show an exact sequence and others go off of inspired action.
We humans are feeling beings and because of this prayer can help our psyche and mental health.
Because when we pray we exude a sense of faith. To have faith is a way to persevere in a tough time and keep a person steadfast that this too shall pass and with the help from on high things will ultimately work out for my highest good.
So does prayer in fact work? Do we know for sure?
First of all if prayer can help calm a frazzled mind or relax someone’s anxiety than indeed it does work. But maybe some of us will say that I tried it and I never had the prayer answered.
Or was it answered but not in the way we had hoped for? Is there a divine plan that if we are tuned into it on a deeper level with our prayer we can see through the matrix into the thread of wonder that lies in each and every souls journey?
Let’s further explore this concept. From my own experience because we are feeling beings we must have a sincere energy established when we pray. If it is superficial in any way it will not make that golden chain connection to the Source of where you came from.
So What Steps Can Help us Pray Powerfully?
Meditation helps us to first calm the mind and change the frequency or channel we operate from in day to day life. From there we have a deeper receptivity and sensitivity to the Most High. We start to feel our subtle awareness kick in and we may get insights we did not have before. This is a good sign we are in a better state to receive and accept prayer.
The key words are accept and receive. You see we are great at blocking the bounty and blessings from on High as a human species. Why is that? Because we create belief systems that are ultimately self defeating most of the time it inhibits the goodness to flow. We may even have thoughts that hurt others more often then send out the good vibes and again this blocks you being a channel for the divine to work through you.
So how are we supposed to pray? While I do not think we can say for sure as each person will have their very own golden link and intimate connection there are some practical tips I can impart that makes a huge difference. You can even document your progress by journaling after following my tips. At least give it a whirl.
Tips for the Most Effective Prayer Practice
- Quiet the mind and get into a state of receptivity.
- Make a sincere effort to remove judgement and limited constructs.
- Use feeling instead of thinking and move into subtle awareness.
- Ask for forgiveness first for you and anyone that pops into your mind. Allow a natural flow to occur around forgiveness first. This puts us in a state of humility and grace.
- Establish a sincere effort for peace through peace making with yourself and any situation or other on your mind.
- Thank God or the Infinite for the blessings it always is streaming on you. Feel the movement of you being the channel for divine love and blessings & steep in that for a while.
- Affirm please and thank you as a way of confidence it is done.
- Ask for sincere help in your situation to be shown in the right way just for you and bless the situation for the highest good of all. Affirm with please and thank you.
- Give back by sending out love and blessings to the world.
