Prayer. Sometimes more difficult to say than the F-word. Why is that? I think that many people associate prayer with a religious affiliation. Nothing wrong with that, but it might mean that people don’t understand what prayer can do.
Have you ever shrieked “Oh, my God!” when you witnessed something scary? Or whispered “help me!” when you were alone and afraid? Those statements are prayers.
Scientists and doctors are providing data that when someone is ill and receiving prayers, their recovery is much quicker.
You see, you don’t have to be in a specific place or be in a spiritual state of mind to pray. Praying is just talking to the Universe or Spirit, or any other name – or not – that you choose. It’s saying thank you when you’ve had a good day. It’s asking for help for a friend when they are in need. It’s asking for the good health and recovery when you or anyone else is experiencing an illness. It’s praying that the planet pulls its collective head out of its a$$ and gets on the path to a gentler, kinder and more cooperative way of life.
So, get down on your knees or not, and have a conversation with the Universe. God knows, we could use the help.
