What is Prayer?

Prayer is giving our attention to God in a two-way spiritual relationship where we talk to God and also listen to Him. Prayer is like a child’s conversation with their father. It is natural for a child to ask his father for the things they need, or to ask for advice or guidance. All relationships require communication. Our prayer is one central way we communicate with God. It is not just about getting our needs met. God calls us to pray in order to develop and deepen relationships with Him.

What Is Faith In God

Faith implies surrendering unconditionally to the highest power. This is the greatest requirement of everyone or every religion. Let Him decide what is best for you. You are supposed to do only good deeds or karmas. Have faith in ONE, worship ONE, without denying that others may worship any God with equal validity. How can your Guru let you down? Even if something bad or unpleasant happens to you, consider it to be the best because you never know how today’s unpleasant situation will turn out to be pleasant in future.

 

JO MAANGE THAAKUR APNE TEY, SOI SOI DEVEY

This verse from (the Sikh religious book) Gurbani speaks volumes. This is a poem of gratitude, faith and complete acceptance by the 5th Sikh Guru Arjan Dev JI. He says “whatever I ask from my Guru, He grants me.” Prayer works, when you believe.

Ever since the spirit of faith entered my heart, my whole outlook on life has changed. Have you ever wondered that something so powerful seems so abstract?

 

What Is The Power Of Faith In God

Although I had many reasons for faith but not for so long, I had a personal revelation about faith. I can say without any doubt that faith has become something very imperative and real for me. I realised that there was a vacuum in my life and faith made me complete.

I remember being positively blissful and happy after I embraced my theism. I realized I was just human, and that made me happy and faith gave me more strength, values and ethics. No obstacle seems too difficult when I feel His presence around me. No riddle seems unsolved. No sadness seems unsold. His mere presence solves every hurdle around me.

He is my father, mother, confidante, best friend and greatest mentor. This feeling is perceived by those who trust the power of the word and thought.

 

Why Should I Believe In God

Everything in creation is made of the five elements – Earth, Fire, Sky, Water, and Air. These are the pillars of God’s creation. Your body is made of the five elements, and your soul is made of the five elements. Wherever you go, you are living in and affected by the five elements.

Nothing in the material world is existing beyond these 5 five elements even science has excepted this long back. Who created this? Human? Can any scientist have the power to create one more element other than those five? I have many more reasons to trust the supreme power, but this one reason is more than sufficient.

How Does It Change lives?

God is always alongside us and ready to listen. Anyone can pray, at any time and in any place. He knows what is best, but to truly embrace what he has planned for you, you have to fully trust him. It is hard for most people to cross that final line and admit it, but once they do, it is like weights fell off of their shoulders. Those who are constantly worried and keep the weights of the future, weights of the past and present too.

What causes loss of faith

For some, connection with God gets trumped by a logical way of thinking. What always makes sense to them is science, something they can trust. They do not believe that God exists without any concrete evidence. Faith is undermined by simple observation, common sense, logic and rational contemplation. Tragic life event leads to thinking along the lines of “if God really existed this wouldn’t have happened”. One of my friends explicitly said, “seeing little kids die of cancer, nothing can ‘justify’ or explain this term of Faith.

Sometimes people who suffer great loss or a very hard life, think God has abandoned them, so they fall away. They are wrong, but they are broken.

Mostly Loss of faith in religion is common because a person develops a greater faith in a different way of seeing the world.

How do you show faith in God?

I think it’s tough situations that make people question the almighty. I firmly believe you get what you get based on your karma or actions of past lives and current life. Continue doing charity and help others as much as you can. Good actions don’t go unnoticed. To have faith in God means you know Him. And once you know Him you never lose faith.

Why is Faith In God Important

Faith matters because hope and love can’t bear the weight of the suffering in the world without it. Faith matters because it reminds us that there’s good in the world, meaning to every life; and that the things that make us human are worth fighting for. Faith matters because it drives us to do what’s right….”

When times feel difficult, it is even more important to trust God. God’s unchanging character can give us a firm foundation when things feel unsteady and uncertain.

How To Perform Prayers

Rather than focusing on the quantity of your prayer time, focus on the quality. Spend quality time with the Lord, not only giving Him your requests, but praying the Word back to Him, and thus claiming His promises. Doing this will help bolster your prayer life, which, in turn, increases your assurance and faith.

Takeaway

. Trusting God is not about ignoring your feelings or reality. It is not pretending that everything is OK when it isn’t. Trusting God is living a life of belief in and obedience to God even when it’s difficult.

. He knows the best way to handle every situation so we get the best possible outcome and we need to trust him with that. We need to follow his path and trust that he knows best because he does.

. So if you are finding yourself in the middle of a mess, trust Him with your tears. He collects them, counts them, and knows them.

. He made us, put His breath in us and He cannot forget us. His word promises that even though a mother might forget the child she bore, He will not be able to forget us.

Faith in God can not be developed merely through my blog. I strongly recommend to leave all the apprehensions behind and just surrender to the supreme power and just observe minutely. My experience says that you will find much more than you are looking for.
