5 Practices - The Spiritual Side of Success-Prayer

These are the practices that help on the way to success.

Let’s think about Prayer.

Prayer is a powerful tool that can help you connect with your inner self and higher power.

I know some people who think praying has to be in the church on Sunday, or many only remember praying when they are in need, in fear, or in a difficult situation.

Many still have the picture of an old man with a white gown and a beard in mind when thinking of praying to God.

Most people do not pray; they only beg.
George Bernard Shaw

Many do not take the time to pray.

In our hectic and stressful times, many do not take the time to pray or are in a hurry.

Taking the time to pray regularly can help you cultivate a sense of gratitude, humility, and faith. Prayer can provide guidance, peace, and clarity and help navigate life’s challenges and make important decisions.

The trouble with nearly everybody who prays is that he says ‘Amen’ and runs away before God has a chance to reply. Listening to God is far more important than giving Him our ideas.
Frank Laubach

I have been looking for quotes that say a lot about how people pray.

Prayer does not mean asking God for all kinds of things we want; it is rather the desire for God Himself, the only Giver of Life.
Sadhu Sundar Singh

Is it not sometimes like Oscar Wilde said?

“When the gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers.”

Quotes from different traditions

I found quotes from different traditions about payers; here they are:

No prayer is complete without presence.

As long as you are performing prayer, you are knocking at the door of Allah, and whoever is knocking at the door of Allah, Allah will open it for him.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya

While praying, listen to the words very carefully. When your heart is attentive, your entire being enters your prayer without your having to force it.
Nachman of Breslov

For me, it is a feeling of love and gratitude that opens the heart to a connection and a conversation with the universal mind, God, Spirit, or whatever we name it.

Here I share a 5 step practice with you, a way to connect, to get in a higher frequency that will help you toward your goal or dream.

This can be done several times easily during the day, even while driving and waiting for the green light while walking, cooking, brushing teeth and…..

May it help you to connect.

Take a few deep breaths!

More quotes about prayer;

For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.
Teresa of Avila

Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
Prayer is not an old woman’s idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action.
Mahatma Gandhi

‘WHAT is a prayer? Prayer is sending blessings to all. Also, Prayer is sending your compassion to all.
Prayer is creating an antidote of negative thoughts – it is positively.’ Osho

Prayer will connect us to the source, which will provide and guide us on the way to our goals and dreams.
