Prayer – does it work?

Have you ever had a prayer that seemed to work like a miracle while at other times, it seemed like your prayers fell on deaf ears?  No matter how much you prayed, begged, cajoled, pleaded, or bargained with, the prayers were unanswered.

You might have thought you did not say the perfect words, or you did not pray enough or maybe you just didn’t deserve to have your prayers answered. The truth is that prayer is not to change some Supreme Being’s mind to give us what we want but to change our mind, our consciousness so we understand that we are part of God and God is part of us.

It is not the words we speak but the consciousness in which we live that determines the quality of our lives.  We have to live in alignment with Spirit’s Will for us, not ours.  All the prayers in the world cannot change Universal Law.  No matter how much we pray that 2 + 2 = 5 it Is not going to happen.

We cannot continue to abuse our bodies and pray for health.  Rather than pray to win the lottery, think about praying for the courage to do that which we are most afraid to do.  Rather than ask God to do for us, what if we asked for the wisdom and courage to do what is ours to do?

Prayer works.  When it doesn’t it is because we have failed to align our will to God’s Will and Universal Law.  That is when we see true miracles happen.
