Just tell me a thing, do you know how god looks like?
Hi Ashok, Prayer helps if we come from the inside out. Stillness and Silence can also be Prayer - in your own sacred inner space. I know not what an image of God might be for you, but you speak of the "Mind's Eye", and the more you still the mind, the more the imagery will settle down, working in tandem with the relaxation of your body - Well - to be sure, it is a unique experience, one-by-one, and good to allocate a truly personal space for Prayer, say at home. Yet, again, we can sit in a park and although there are people around, simply be with what comes from the inside out. And that's what can affect our disposition and the reaction of other people, who at times pick up on the calmess and peace that it is possible to develop, over time. I hope this is useful to you Ashok. And something beautiful happens to you today, like hearing the birds sing differently, or the trees rustle in the distance. Have a good day.
I believe it was Paul who said. "Pray without ceasing." You can pray anywhere any time, sitting, walking, laying down, driving or working. When you have Jesus in your heart and the Holy Spirit dwells within you there is a constant feeling of communication between you and God. Giving thanks for everything! Much of what I write I feel an inspiration from God as to what I am to say. Many do not understand what I say because they are in the world; even many Christians. Prayers do not need to be long drawn out affairs with flowery words; Just give thanks, honour God ask for his help not a laundry list of what you want. He will give you what you need. Pray for others their needs and care. Learn what it truly means to love others as you love yourself. Matthew 22:39
Use whatever image you have that makes you calm, peaceful and relaxed.You need a "quiet time" to talk with God and pray and focussing on a happy image such as a garden or a beach will strengthen this time of prayer and underline this bonding and your time talking with God.
God is many things, our heavenly father, our creator, our confidant, our counsilor, but first and foremost he is our friend. When I "pray" I don't really pray. Idont close my eyes, bow my head and fold my hands. What if your best friend walked up to you like that? Wouldnt look at you, held his own hand and said "dear ahsok it is so nice to see you again. I hate to trouble you but could I borrow 5 bucks?" I talk to god like a veryclose firend. I usually start with "hey dude whats up? How are things in heaven?"
No , think about the good things that GOD had done for you , I think that will be more helpful
When you are praying go in to your happy world , what makes you happy..and then pray no image of God or anyone just picture happiness..it might seem hard but God makes all things possible with good heart! XD
No the bible says the only way to pray is through Jesus and TO God. That\'s the KEY right there. THERE IS NO WAY TO PRAY BUT ONLY TO GOD. Eyes open, eyes closed, kneeling, not kneeling, image of God in your head or no image of God in your head. As long as you are praying to God.(: I hope I helped. Because the bible doesn't say you have to have an image of him in your head or any of the other actions I mentioned.
