Prayer - Why do you pray?

Sunday, April 01, 2012

lWhy do you pray?  They say faith can move mountains and prayers is one step closer to God.  Whatever religion you might have, prayer was indeed a mighty formula of your faith. 

Sometimes, we pray to give us strength in time of problems and worries.  We pray for guidance, to lead us to the things we needed to do.  We pray for our children, our love ones, our friends and sometimes we also pray for our enemies. We pray for someone who is suffering of pain or dying. Prayer for our country and the one who leads it is one thing i bet you also do.  

We pray when we are happy, to give thanks to all the things we had and we don't have and we even pray that we can overcome the trials in this world.  There are many kind of prayers, some are specific, some can be elaborated and some can be informal.  Why do you really pray?

Prayers are basically talking to the one we believe in. It is a way of discovering the faith we have within us. Sometimes, we feel that it was complicated.  It doesn't need a certain or specific place for us to pray.  We can pray whatever and whenever we wanted too.  But of course, there is specific place we called " House of God" for us to say our prayers.  

Sometimes, we felt that our prayers are futile and we don't get result from it.  But don't falter, our prayers might be unanswered today but it is not because the Good Lord doesn't hear it or did not recognize it but he certainly had reasons , far greater that we could imagine. 

Have you say your prayers today?  I pray that we will be enlighten and may the Good Lord will bless us and guide us always not just this Lenten Season but every day of our lives.

  6. It is the spirit that teaches man to pray. Prayer is a spiritual communication with our Heavenly Father through His Son Jesus Christ. It is a sure manifestation of everyone's faith when he/she prays.

  12. Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart. - Mahatma Gandhi

  22. We pray because we need some comfort from our Heavenly Father. We live in this crappy world where injustices are very rampant and actually becoming a norm. We pray for strength to be able to endure our trials in life and of course we pray because we want to say thank you to our Creator for the blessings we may received.
