Where are our Prayers going?

What did you pray for Sunday mass today? Money, job, love, fame, world peace?

We’re living in the 21st century, God ought to at least have an email address if not WhatsApp! Even if he spamdid and some of us have that email address, how do we know that our prayers aren’t ending up as spam in his inbox?

Let’s be honest, we all pray, some make them short and crisp while others ramble on for hours on end. But what are we actually praying for? Do our desires and wishes count as a prayer? We all want luxuries in life and God is the only one who can grant it. Well, wasn’t it God who said: “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you…” And boy! have we been asking ever since…

We all believe, there is God behind all those clouds in the blue sky, hopefully listening to us and make things better for us. But wait! I’ve been over the clouds, isn’t it above the clouds that airplanes fly? I recently did only in November last year, but I didn’t get a glimpse of God anywhere.. is he playing hide and seek with me? Oh, wait! It was a late night flight… I couldn’t even see the clouds clear.

We pour our hearts to HIM after which we feel lighter and feel better. That is the magic of praying to HIM.

We celebrated Holy Communion at our church today with young boys & girls would receive Jesus for the first time in their hearts.. what a wonderful day for them. We pray they keep the fire of Jesus burning in their hearts forever.

What did your prayer include today?

 

‘Right’ way to Pray

Everyone knows to pray  while some whisper prayers during quiet moments of frustration and others scream them in times of desperation. There are different ways to pray and not necessarily a “right way”
The important thing to remember is.. that prayer is simply a method of communicating with God and one should talk to God like he’s our friend.

Most of us pray asking God for a lot of things.. good health, a good job, a bigger house, a life partner, a baby etc etc… Praying hands praying hand child prayer clip art image 6 8

Doesn’t God know what you already need? not necessarily want..

HE surely does. He may not give it to you exactly in the package you want it in, but in a bigger better way, we only need to recognize it when it comes.

Ever thought..

When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them and that when you are safe and happy, someone somewhere has prayed for you.

It’s never about ‘me’, we should always pray for others, always ‘others before self’

So when a friend asks you “How do I pray?”

You don’t say much but tell him/her to Just talk to God respectfully but openly and HE WILL surely listen to you.
