The What and How of Prayer

Written by on March 4, 2019 in Conscious Evolution, Conscious Living, Thrive with 0 Comments

Prayer is More!

Is it asking, requesting, or petitioning? At times yes, however, overall it is more.  It is being in alignment with your highest self. It is a mediation, a visualization, an expectation that propels one from the ordinary to a peaceful state.

How long shall I pray?

Prayer lasts a moment, a day, even a lifetime. When it ends, it begins again.  There is no failure, just hope. Disappointments still exist, yet don’t remain and are transformed by the renewing of the mind. In prayer there is quiet. A quiet mind and a heart that is hopeful. Prayer may not change the immediate landscape, experience or circumstance however it provides a means of compassion, love and the desire to be part of the solution. In this it allows satisfaction and clarity to arise.  It allows a soothed heart and peaceful mind.

How does one pray?

The answer is the same for all and yet as varied as each individual. It is all about connection.  Connecting within and recognizing an all-knowing, honoring, loving being resides there.  Getting to this point may take many paths, yet has one requirement. Surrender, letting go, yielding to the heart knowledge that the great I Am is within. Always and forever. The words are inconsequential, the stance matters not. The connection is paramount.

Why is connection paramount?

Because this is your truth. This connection will and does express itself for your and others highest good. It is the light within that glows from your eyes. It is the sound within that emanates from your heart. It is complete presence.

Prayer is acceptance

Prayer is accepting ‘the more’. More than you can see, have known, learned or even understood. Prayer is communicating beyond your ability to understand and it is the realization that all is as it should be. Prayer is the comfort for a wounded soul. It is the celebration of melding of hearts.

Prayer transforms

Prayer transforms the darkness by absorbing the light. It changes perspective so that conditioned thought does not prevail and harmony reigns.


What to do about Prayer?

Pray without ceasing my friends.  Live this life in much hope, with much love and shine.  Be at peace within, this is prayer.
