Many pray simply to ask the heavens for things. In teaching some of my students person to person how to pray, I asked them to show me how they usually prayed first. Most of them prayed with what sounded like a Christmas Wish list for Santa Claus, but in a way to request needs, and desires in life from those dwelling above. I had heard all sorts of things like “Please make me wealthy”. Or, “Please bring my lover back to me”. For some I heard them ask to lose weight, get their desired job, or they didn’t know what to say. It’s totally okay to request needs. But prayer is your one way communication with the above. Are you sure that, you only have requests to make? Prayer should be more than letting heaven know what you want or need. In fact, they already know those things. They want prayer to be about building a relationship with them.
One can not demand heaven, but prayer is an open request that the higher ups can choose to or choose not to answer depending on whether it pertains to a soul contract lesson through higher self but the prayer if asked in faith for the right reasons in serenity and patience through learning… will be answered… just differently than expected and not always right away. Things have to be put into motion after prayer like in events, people involved, things needed to be realized, and sometimes those things take time. Plus building a relationship is about trust. They want to see that you trust them by not worrying over your needs and if you can’t help it, to learn the wisdom behind your situation, and how to trust that they know what’s best. Patience, and acceptance in leaving your prayer in the hands of the heavens, helps you get closer to your higher self because patience and acceptance are a part of surrender.
Heaven looks for selflessness, sincerity, a need for wisdom, and if your prayer aligns with your divine path. Sometimes what you think you want or need, is only what the avatar Self thinks that they want or need, and will have nothing to do with your divine self.￼ That’s when trust in whatever outcome your prayer brings, is a good way to accept and learn from humility in higher self who is divine and pure and where no greed exists… versus your earthly self where greed is deep, even in non-visible ways on the surface.
What’s more, is that as a family you should pray together. I have taught all of my kids to pray from as early as they could speak. Even as babies, I set an example for them, praying in front of them. In that, they have seen some pretty powerful sessions where prayer has led to great healing’s, or even great emotions that caused quaking in the room. I have always been a great advocate for prayer. Right now, my littlest one is learning how to pray in light language which seems to come pretty easy. Prayer helps you to spend time with your family and heaven both￼￼ while building a relationship with the higher ups, your family, and instilling morals and values.￼
Pray with friends even. This invokes the essence of the Holy Spirit.
Importance of Prayer
Prayer is important because he keeps you in touch with your spiritual mindset and mood. If you don’t pray, meditate or take part in any kind of spiritual activity throughout the day, you can get lost in every day worldly things such as television and Internet which can push your mind further and further away from your spiritual vibrations. It lowers your Vaivén can make you feel very depressed after a while. Just a little bit of prayer can go a long way. There is also important because it let’s heaven know that you still invite them within. Of course spirit already knows that you want them within your soul, but saying it out loud sets the vibration in your reality too. It’s almost as if to say that you want heaven inside and outside. And that is a really wonderful way to create the spiritual atmosphere needed to start your day.. ￼￼￼￼
Keeping the energy inside of yourself can keep you positive, even if just praying for a small amount of time. Prayer also sets intentions for things needed in the future and can help very powerfully in healing mentally, emotionally, spiritually and even in times of need for physical healing. Many people have come to me with things like a common cold and we have prayed, and it has gone away. Prayer also lets the people in your life know that you are trying to be in a spiritual mindset and it can help you join together with them, bonding even for just a small prayer session. My father worked a lot when I was a kid and I can tell you that he at least took the time out to pray for about 10 to 15 minutes in the morning with me before he left for work.
I always remembered that and appreciated those moments. Your family will too. Prayer can also bring your family together during crisis. There are many families who are estranged and very dysfunctional. When something goes awfully wrong, when they come together and pray… It brings them back together as a strong united front. Even without a crisis, praying with your family can heal it of any burdens or struggles that you may be experiencing as a family unit. Prayer also helps to teach gratitude, and to always remember that you are not alone when you feel the most loneliest.
￼￼￼￼Prayer is a beautiful way to keep yourself structured spiritually for sure.￼￼￼￼
1. Pray with love and trust.
2. Remember that you don’t have to be religious to pray. A friend of mine reminded me to add this when she reposted the article when I first published it. It was a great piece of information that I should’ve added to begin with. But now that it’s here, always remember prayer is not just for those who go to church, it’s our way of speaking to heaven no matter where we are.￼￼
3. Remember that you don’t have to be fancy or ritualistic. Talking to heaven should be done with respect but you can also do it while just being yourself and from your heart center.￼
4. The heavens work in a hierarchy. Therefore just like our Postal Service delivers from location to location to get to your destination, it works the same up there. Address your spiritual guides, call on your angels and your masters. Thank them and the most high, for considering your words.
5. Never be afraid to talk about anything you want. Prayer is not just for asking for things, it’s for telling them your concerns. You’re having a bad moment? Then open up about it. If you’re celebrating something and you need somebody to tell, tell them. The idea is to be a friend￼￼￼.
6. Remember to pray wherever you go. You don’t have to be on your knees at bedside to pray. You can pray in your car, walking down the street, or you can pray going about your daily tasks.￼
When more than one person prays for something, it sets the intention far stronger. If you’re struggling with something or just want a little extra back up for your prayers, please feel free to submit a prayer through my website. It is absolutely free. I usually pray with the Angels and my family for the prayer submissions that come in.￼We pray for hundreds of people weekly through those submissions. I am more than happy and extremely humbled to be your support system at this time.￼￼￼
Sending love to you all always!
