Prayer is a powerful act that goes beyond any religious affiliation. This is because the act of praying is an individual act of faith. It is our opportunity to enter into a dialogue with the divine in our nature. Prayer is a pathway covered in miracles.
True prayer is the connection to ourselves, our true powerful conscious selves. Within our consciousness we have the power to perform unbelievable feats. The magic that cascades from our prayers tumbles off the words we invoke.
To speak words in prayer is more than repetition. Powerful prayers are built with awareness, a clear focus of intention unwavering in the knowledge it is already so. The awareness of energy that arose to bless within the intention to pray is the confirmation it is coming into form.
Each time we are inspired from within to act, speak or become something, it is the ignition of the very energy to makes it a reality. Forming our prayers with the knowledge that they are already granted.
It’s the knowledge that the fruit is in the seed, just as the seed is within the fruit. They are one and the same in nature. The appearance as the seed is the demonstration while the fruit is the celebration of that demonstration. It’s the same with prayers. We demonstrate our seed of faith while celebrating timelessly as it’s already present although, unseen.
Prayer is often found within religious institutions. Many people have found that traditional religious practices they grew up with, do not hold passion for them. Some yearn to have a powerful connection to their spirituality that seems to be missing in their religious practices. Some have spent hours reciting prayers with little attention or feeling where its mostly routine.
There are different reason or even different times, when we may have fallen away from our true inner power. It’s this power that rests within the one who prays that matters. It is not so much the prayer that is recited that carries power. It is the person who holds the intention within the prayer who wields the power.
Everyone has the opportunity to pray, even without any formal religious training. It is one of my favorite things to teach, because it is an instant gift for everyone. Prayer work benefits everyone as it lifts the spirit to a higher octave of awareness. Within the collective that vibrational shift helps to lift the energy of those we pray for as well as those around us.
There is an interesting phenomenon that occurs when we pray. I once read a study about the power of prayers on individuals. The study had three groups. The first group of individuals was prayed for by others and were told that they were being prayed for by others. The second group was prayed for by others, but was not told. The third group was a control group that was not prayed by others.
The study revealed that a mark improvement within both groups that were prayed for by others over the group that had not. Additionally, it was determined that the group that had known they were being prayed showed significantly increased overall improvement compared to the other groups.
These findings are hard to imagine when we understand the power of conscious thoughts. When we share our awareness of an event essentially linking our consciousness, it increase the intensity of that awareness to effect change. Those who knew they were being prayed for recovered quicker and report having higher spirits throughout their process.
It important to share our intentions of prayer for those we pray for because it will bring their attention to it. Joining their force of light to a prayer for their good increase the prays effect immediately. Sometimes healing only needs a healthy container to get started toward recovery. Prayers are the containers of greatest hopes and best wishes.
Prayers can help to liberate a heavy heart by shifting perspective that is anchor in kinship of other prayer warriors. While we are praying for other we are equally blessed by those good intentions. We are focused in prayer like a conduit of light that helps to clear all that entangles and frees energy to move.
Becoming a prayer warrior means to use prayer as a shield from lower energy and experiences to help others and ourselves. It is a type of energetic training. It requires focused attention with the commitment of time, energy and space to pray. It’s actively choosing to put energy toward bettering a situation. It means honoring goodwill, harmony, non-resistance, forgiveness, compassion and desire for peace.
We may come to pray confused, bewildered, disconnected, or in some other state that feels ungrounded. Yet, prayer can release distress revealing a sense of peace that we claim for ourselves. Wherever we happen to be, or however we happen to feel, prayer is available. It can be a ladder out of danger and warm blanket of truth.
Prayer work can be done as a monthly or even a daily practice. I like to keep a pray list of all those for whom I will be offer light and prayers. It makes a clear cognizant awareness within my practice. Those that are on the list are prayed for monthly and are included in a prayer circle that keeps the names in a prayer vigil for the month.
Praying daily offers the benefit of growing strong in the power of your prayers. Much the way a weightlifter builds strength lifting matter to build muscles. Prayer warriors build energetic strength the same lifting awareness and gather light to become a stronger conduit of light.
Prayers can be of any length so long as the intention is expressed fully. Prayers that are felt passionately with great honesty often have the easiest way of manifesting because they felt to be real already. Nothing that arrives in our hearts that is beyond grace’s power to prevail its arrival.
Giving our hopes, fears and wishes to be spoken into form through prayer is more than acknowledgment. Prayers speak of the gratitude within the divine seeds being planted awaiting the bloom. I encourage you to take time to pray with the awareness it is already granted through the power of your awareness.
Let’s plant the seeds of peace and compassion. Let’s open our mouths full of praise for the good that we will towards one another. Let’s be thankful for all that we have including this precious life. May the light within us continue to shine brightly being unity and love to our world. In peace we are one.
