There are many true stories which are both documented and unknown, telling us, prayer works in mysterious ways which science can’t explain. Numerous books have been written on the subject matter regarding the interconnection of mind, body and spirit. The greatest message is that whatever the mind thinks consistently, it will manifest into reality which the person can really see, feel and experience. This is one of the universal laws which is always true no matter what country, race, color, religion, culture you belong in this world. In fact, this kind of truth is nothing new. This is very ancient.
The goal is to apply this principle into our prayers. We should realize that every time we pray, we must use our mind with all our understanding and belief. For it to bring results the way we want it, we must pray with a hidden thought and feeling that sooner or later, our prayer is already answered. This is where trust comes in. It’s not experimentation but genuine faith to a Divine Powerful Being. This is where God comes in. You’re praying to God that He is the One who fulfills all your needs.
God always wants us to be truly happy because He is our One Creator as we’re all His children. However, one of the attributes of God is that He never forces us. He gives us total freedom but He is waiting for us to call Him. This is where prayer comes in.
Prayer must be part of our daily activity just like eating and taking a bath. It’s like food to our soul as fuel is to the car. Without prayer, we will be weary, stressed out and drained, leading to sickness in the long run.
As you’ll read between the lines of each payer, you will notice that action or participation is needed from you in order for prayer to have relevance and meaning in your situation. Of course, God works hand in hand with us. So perseverance, therefore, is greatly needed. For those who endure, great and lasting is their reward.
This is what life is all about. It’s like a game where victory is achieved after passing all the tests and trials. But worry not. God invented this game where all of us will win in the ultimate end. The questions are… Do we ask help from Him? Do we have patience and trust on Him? Are we ready to do our part?
Lastly, the meaning of the word, Amen, must be taken seriously. The Greek Old Testament in the Holy Bible translates Amen as So Be It. The phrase, ‘So Be It’ is a simple yet authoritative statement with a deep strong confidence that what’s being said will come true. Always bear it in your mind.
When you’re lost for words especially in a situation of worry, fear, sadness, emptiness or anger, find an appropriate prayer below to help you connect to God. For a result which needs time, pray every day until the answer has finally come true.
