Prayer

Prayer

When you read Divine Betrayal you will be very conscious of little Gracie praying at every possible occasion. When she wishes a doll for Christmas she prays, when she argues with her sister, Gracie prays, when she is disobedient and needs forgiveness she prays, etc… But it isn’t the traditional prayer, where she kneels by her bed or in church, Graceann is really having a conversation with Jesus and she has no doubt that she is being heard. This type of prayer is not the only kind, and I believe prayer is very personal.
The definition of prayer is: an attempt to communicate with the higher power which created the universe. This is something that many people share in common, yet they may differ in the way they pray. Their purpose in praying may be the same, to give thanks, or to ask for something.
There have been a multitude of books written on this subject, and people may differ, many times having to do with their beliefs. Some religions may need a lot of preparation before praying, such as fasting, ringing of bells, burning candles or burning incense, etc… Others feel that praying should only be done in a church or temple. Whatever the method, the goal is the same,” to communicate with the higher power.”
For me, prayer has always been an integral part of my life. I could not function without it. I am a Christian and my prayers are directed at Jesus and God. My prayers seem to be more like a conversation, no matter where I am or what I am doing. I may be on a walk, or driving a car, or in the kitchen cooking, I am constantly praying. My prayers are mostly “thank you” even when I’m asking for a specific result. For instance, if I am praying for a sick friend I may say “Thank you Jesus for healing ——..” I seldom ask, and most of my prayers are “Thank you —-.” I may repeat the same prayer many times during the day. This sometimes may even seem similar to chanting. I find this relaxing and also comforting.
There is no right or wrong, and I don’t believe anyone has the correct formula for reaching God. It is a very personal thing, no matter how you believe, be it; Catholic, Buddhist, Protestant, Hindu, Muslim, etc…

    Hey ,, been recently following your articles for a long time, however never ever chimed in on a single thing before. Thought I would personally chime in. I think this great article you submitted quite instructive. There were a handful of points that weren’t very clear, but by and large, the content was indeed goof — not that you require anyone telling you exactly what you know, haha. Anyway, thanks!

    Hello, found your site by good fortune in the early hours, but am very pleased that I did! As well as being full of sense but it’s also very easy to read in contrast to loads that I visit! (The site I’m trying to work on, is about hypnosis downloads). I was looking to see if I could work out what layout you were using, can somone give me an idea? The site I’m making is a review site for hypnosis downloads. I’ve got the same look on my site, – I’ve found for whatever reason it seems to reload much more quickly here, though this site seem to have a lot more content. Are you using any plugin that speed it up? : Sorry to go on, but lastly to say, I get pleasure from such a wonderful website and it’s obviously a good inspiration for my modest review site attempt of hypnosis downloads. I’ll try to improve my own blog attempt. Obviously, I’ll check out your wonderful site regularly.

Becoming a devoted blogger, I’m thrilled to see other people taking move and donating on the neighborhood. I just needed to opinion to show my thankfulness in your publish as it’s quite inviting, and lots of freelance writers usually do not get the credit they ought to have.
