What Is Prayer?

The word ‘prayer’ is derived from the Latin word precarious, which means ‘obtained by begging.’

Prayer is based on the belief that there is a supreme power, greater than oneself, which can transform one’s life. It is the act of raising our supplications to God or a higher power. If there is something meaningful in the world that people tend to overlook, then that one thing is ‘prayer’. In this article, we will be clearing all your misconceptions about ‘prayer’ and also touching on the miraculous aspects of prayer.

The act of ‘praying’ is not connected to a particular religion; instead, it is more related to connecting with your spiritual self. You don’t need to be religious to perform the ‘act of praying’. It is more about finding your lost aura by reconnecting with the elements of spirituality.

Einstein said, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it”. There is good energy and bad energy. Prayer is done with a clean heart and pure intentions help generate this good energy.

First, let us look at the meaning of praying. Praying is a ‘conversation’. Just like you catch up with friends, praying enables you to connect with the universal power (some call it — God).

#Prayer can work miracles

A lot of studies have been conducted on the healing power of prayers. Research has shown that ‘prayer’ is akin to ‘meditation’. Just like meditation, prayer calms your nervous system, cleanses your aura, and shields you from negative emotions.

How To Pray?

Offering ‘thanks’, is the first step involved in praying. First, offer thanks to the Almighty for all the blessings in your life.

Even when you feel that there is nothing good in your life to be thankful for, find something to offer gratitude to the supreme force.

The next step is to pray for others, also known as intercession or intercessory prayer. Intercessory prayers are extremely powerful as it is a selfless act of service.

Finally, share your petitions with God and conclude the prayer by offering thanks in advance for all the blessings coming your way. This is how you should pray!

If you have been praying the wrong manner, all these years, then tweak your prayer style and feel the difference.

Sometimes when life lashes at us with financial, emotional, physical, and health challenges — all we need to do is to take refuge under the umbrella called ‘prayer’.

‘Pray’ the right way and take charge of your life…
