I just want to say that you shouldn’t feel embarrassed about taking up prayer. I know that many people think that only Christians can pray, but this is simply not true. Anyone can take up prayer regardless of religion.
You should pray in secret to God.
Praying is one of the things that I think a lot of people can benefit from.
To progress towards God, it’s important to serve your fellow man, meditate and pray.
I recommend 15 minutes of prayer daily, perhaps morning or evening time.
When praying for others, you draw towards you Gods’ helpers/guides/angels etc. who will help you with your needs and help you to progress towards God.
So, helping others through service and prayer is almost definitely in everyone’s best interest.
The technique that I have used to pray in the past is to sit and visualize the person/thing and send out a prayer that this person/thing is helped by God but doing so in a positive way, don’t pray saying you have this problem and that problem as the law of mutual attraction will think you want more problems.
You pray in a positive way I.e Thanking God for xyz
This is generally the technique that I have used and has worked very well for me.
Over time you will be able to take up regular prayer and draw towards you Gods angels/guides who will work alongside you to help for your benefit and the benefit of the world.
Of course prayer is very important in making progress towards God and growing in spirituality and so its important for everyone on the spiritual path to take up prayer and meditation and for it to become apart of daily routine, because through these things and service to man you can begin to lessen your own ego and have that be replaced with spiritual power. Of course my article can only help you if you put into action these words you have read here. So please do take up prayer and have it be apart of your daily routine, just 15 minutes a day will change your life for the better.
Lastly I did just want to make clear that God answers all prayers in his own time and you can refer to the parable of the persistent widow which is a really nice metaphor for God answering prayers.
In short a widow asks a judge for justice for her husband. The judge didn’t really care of God, but because she persisted, the judge gave way and gave justice to her husband.
When applied to God who is a loving and caring God who cares for all, if a judge that doesn’t care about God grants justice because of persistence then God will definitely because God loves us all and cares for us each of us.
I also want to add in this article that you can pray for LITERALLY ANYTHING you think you need, if you want more love in the world pray for it, if you want more good people pray for it, if you want more friends pray for it.
It’s also advised to do a short prayer at the beginning of each day of placing yourself into Gods hands and you can pray that his angels and his guides watch over you.
God doesn’t judge and cares for us each individually.
Equally you can pray for others as well, if someone is causing you harm, pray for them, if you want to change the world in a positive way, pray for it, if you want to see less harm in the world, pray for it. If you want more peace in the world, pray for it.
It should also be noted that God rewards those whom pray consistently and God sees in secret.
