The Omnipresent ever-loving God does actually answer every single prayer, although it may not be apparent. Thankfully many prayers that go up are answered with a resounding “no”! What then is a prayer? A prayer is a series of thoughts that go out to God in the hope that some kind of result will ensue. Some prayers take the form of a shopping list; sent up as a last resort with the emphasis on “me”. This is generally when God pops up as a kind of afterthought when all else has failed, and these are the prayers that usually get the big “no”!
What many don’t realise is that God has to be moved (coaxed) and this happens according to the sincerity of the one engaged in prayer. You see we forget that literally everything is God and God permeates every single cell of matter in this dimension, and indeed semi-matter and light in the dimensions beyond. We already know that our thoughts are creative, everything is driven by thoughts, and this is the same when it comes to prayer. Prayer is communion with God and when we pray from the heart with deep sincerity, not giving a thought for ourselves, then the Omnipresent God is moved into action; things happen. Insincere payers are like blind faith; completely useless.
The secret of successful prayer is to detach from the outcome. If you think about this it’s more than logical. When someone complains that God has not answered their prayers, it implies that they were expecting some kind of reward and therefore the prayer was not entirely selfless. To detach is to place everything in the hands of God knowing that he will act in accordance with the Divine plan and our highest good and not necessarily in the way we expect.
Now if you’ll just excuse me I’ve got to pray for my Christmas wish list.
