The Awesome Power of Prayer
Have your say… leave a comment below after you read!
The greatest power of prayer is that it opens up the lines of direct communication with the Divine Life Source. The infinite power of this Source is within and around us always, but all too often, we lose the sense of this relationship, which can cause feelings of disconnection, isolation, and struggle. Prayer is the simplest and most effective way of reconnecting, and staying connected, with the great whole of which we are a part.
One of the most vital aspects to the power of prayer is that it allows us to instantly feel supported, connected, and in touch with the Divine, as well as with all living beings. By creating a dialogue between us and a Higher Power, whatever name we may choose to call this power, we can connect on a deeper and more personal way with our own Divinity, allowing us to feel ‘plugged in,’ and ‘switched on.’
Knowing that we are all vital parts of the Divine life force, and that we are on this earth with a purpose, provides a powerful antidote to the feelings of isolation and competition that can come from the focus that society tends to place on individualism and separateness.
The power of prayer also comes from being able to let go of the burden of having to ‘do it all ourselves.’ Rather than believing that we have to ‘make things happen,’ prayer can help us get out of our own way, and let things happen. Letting go can be a whole lot easier with the power of prayer creating a sense of safety, security and strength.
A prayer for guidance is a way to connect with, and ask for support from the Divine at times when we feel lost, confused, and uncertain. Whether we are facing a big decision and want to make the choice from a place of clarity and confidence, or whether we just feel adrift and unfocused in our everyday lives, enlisting Divine guidance is one of the best things we can do.
Feeling fully and lovingly supported by the Divine, we can learn to trust that we are always safe, and always provided for. When we stop grasping at straws and stop holding on so tight we can allow ourselves to relax and be held by the infinite strength and loving power of the Divine. This frees our minds from worry and our hearts from fear, and opens up endless opportunities for joy and fulfillment.
The power of prayer can also help us to believe and affirm that amazing things are possible in our lives, and that we do not necessarily need to know exactly how and when these ‘miracles’ will show up. We just need to trust that they can and will happen, and stop blocking them from happening with fear, doubt, and limiting beliefs. A simple prayer for trust is to just pray, ‘God/Spirit of Love I surrender to you and trust you to show me the way.’
Prayer can work very effectively as a form of affirmation, and enlisting Divine support for what we are affirming can really supercharge our affirmations. A simple affirmative prayer that focuses on trust is, ‘Dear God/Spirit of Love, I affirm that ___________ is coming into my life, in its own perfect time and its own perfect way.’
Including gratitude in our prayers for all the amazing blessings that surround each and every one of us (yes, they are there if you will only notice them!), helps us to become aware of, appreciate and feel grateful for everything good in our lives. If you can see a tiny glimpse of what you want to experience already evident in your life, then give thanks for that, and affirm that you look forward to more of the same.
For example, if money is an issue in your life, find a moment when you have already got everything you need for that day, and you still have money in your wallet. It doesn’t matter if it is only a dollar, at that moment you have more than you need. Say a prayer of gratitude for the fact that you have more money than you need, and affirm that more and more is coming. Let the power of prayer fill you with a deep sense that all is well, and keep reminding yourself to tune into that sense of wellbeing.
Another vital way that the power of prayer can be manifested is in allowing us to develop a strong belief that whatever happens, with Divine support, we can handle it. In maintaining a strong connection with our Higher Power, prayer can help us release a lot of the fears and worries about what the future may hold. We can create a conviction in our hearts that we are never alone, and that no matter what challenges we may encounter, with the Divine strength, wisdom, love and support that are within and around us always, everything will always be well.
