Prayer does not change God,
but it changes him who prays.
– Soren Kierkegaard
Do you pray? Do you meditate? Do you have faith that there’s a Higher Power in your life that guides you when you listen to your own inner voice? What are you beliefs? Do you even know what you believe? Have you thought about it?
Perhaps now’s the time if you haven’t already thought about your beliefs. Spend some time today quietly, perhaps surrounded by nature, and ask yourself what you believe in your heart and soul. Allow the answer to come to you in the stillness of the moment. Listen carefully and notice what you’re thinking and how you are feeling. Many times the answers to our innermost questions are revealed when we allow our souls, hearts and minds to speak to us. Listen with an open heart.
For me, prayer is peace. Perhaps it was the way I was brought up or how I’ve evolved over the years. I find when I give my worries up to my Higher Power, Inner Spirit, Universe, God, answers come to me. Ways are made clear and my Divine Purpose is revealed to me with more detail. Prayer stops my monkey mind (you know, the anxiety of what to do, the mind that perseverates over problems over and over) and allows me to be at peace. Not always are the answers to my inner most questions revealed after praying. But in time, I trust in faith that because the questions have been asked, answers are delivered with Divine timing. It’s just the peace in being in the Presents of Presence.
How about you? How do you feel about prayer? What do you believe? On such a beautiful peaceful Sunday, I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject!
