Christ said: “When ye pray, believe ye have it. Become as a little child if you would enter the kingdom.”
I just found that less than half of us pray on a daily basis. I felt somewhat astounded, as for most of my friends and me, pray at least once and usually several times a day. Most of my friends are educated, coming from different countries, cultures, races, and religions. Many are Protestants, Catholics and some are Buddhist, Hindus, and Sikhs. Even with all our differences, we have a single bonding common denominator; that is we all pray. We all know there is more to this life than what meets the eye.
Being humans means on most days we’re bombarded by distractions, challenges, and adverse situations. I believe if humanity understood how simple, but powerfully effective prayer is they would be cherishing their time in prayer, instead of avoiding it. If we could put aside our adult ego’s and become like children, full of curiosity’s and simple trust, we would be able to pray from our hearts. Being like a child in our prayers knowing we are safe and cared for would open the door to the kingdom of heaven, and we would receive the spiritual, emotional and physical benefits associated with prayer and the miracles that God channels through prayers.
“Trust in me, commit your ways unto me.”
As for me, I’ve found a hiding place, a monk’s cave in the midst of the chaos. It’s my inner sanctum, It’s the kingdom of heaven within me, I quickly enter my heavenly abode by simply being silent, being still and letting the I Am hear the prayer of my heart. I m like a child I need ask for nothing for My loving Father knows all I need and all that has been made and will be done is already mine. I have ceased my longings, not of my volition, but because of His overwhelming love, a love that assures me in the depths of my heart, my Father is at this very moment performing the miracles I need, for He knows what’s best for me. He never fails to release the exact miracles I need, and within moments they begin to flow over me like warm spring rains, saturating my body, soul, and spirit.
“For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?”
Our Supreme Creator, Lord and Maker God, works in mysterious ways, moment by moment, performing miracles and wonders for you and me. It’s my heartfelt belief that my prayers channel these miracles, making them the cornerstones of my life.
“Delight thyself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”
Prayer, oh what a blessed gift. What a comfort in times of testing. What else can heal a soul torn asunder? What else can lift us from the depths of despair? When all else has failed, prayer always brings us physical and spiritual showers of blessings along with the miracles that support a life of peace, love and pure bliss.
What a happy feeling it is to pray until you get that warm glowing feeling that lights up your imagination and fills you with the sense that you are in the midst of a miracle, and you are already in possession of for which you have prayed. Oh, what a mysterious thing prayer is to so many, yet when we approach it’s from the point of our being like little children, prayers mysteries fade like the morning due in the midst of the sun’s warming rays.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
May your life be filled with every blessing.
