How Can I Pray More Effectively?

No comments

Katya: “How can I overcome absentmindedness when praying and make my prayer fervent and effective as the Bible instructs?”

The Voice for Love: “Precious One, be assured, there is no ‘right’ way to pray, to approach your holiness or to even be fervent. All of these things are just forms of expression. Know that you are perfect in every way. The way you seek Me is perfect in every way. What you are doing now is perfect in every way. I have no expectation of you. I am delighted in you. I am overjoyed with your being, your experiencing, your living. You cannot do wrong in my eyes, but only in your own eyes.

“So let us look at how you can extend peace to your thoughts of absentmindedness. Dear one, simply allow yourself to notice when you are experiencing this feeling of absentmindedness. Give thanks for the absenting of your mind for a moment. This, in fact, allows you to notice many things. Be still a moment in the absenting of your mind and breathe. That is all, just breathe. This gives you such strength and grounds you to your natural state of holiness. Prayer is but talking to God. You may talk to God at any time, in any way. Your heart is praying at all times, whether you are aware of it or not. It is this very absentmindedness that you are experiencing that will help you to become aware of the precious communication we are experiencing in one another at all times.

“Give yourself time in the early morning to sit quietly, even for just five minutes. Sit quietly, with eyes closed and breathe deeply. Notice what you become aware of: Is it hot? Is a fly buzzing? Do thoughts of your work day from yesterday float into your awareness? Does a worry about a child in your life come into focus? Simply notice these things and give thanks for your five minutes you have given yourself. In this way you allow your gift for absentmindedness to work for you and support you in your desire to pray fervently. Allow your fervor to be the commitment to yourself to give yourself five minutes each morning of quiet and peace and noticing your thoughts. Remember to breathe and give thanks for this time and listen to your heart. Many pray but few take the time to listen for the everpresent answers. It is in these quiet times of absentmindedness that the answers will float up into your awareness with little effort.

“Thank you dear one for taking the time to come with such a sweet question. We give you much love and thanks for this.

“Amen and Selah.”
