I know there are a lot of us that pray for people who are sick,or maybe someone that has lost a loved one,or for peace in the world,or maybe you even pray for a lost soul.Whatever it is you may pray for you do it out of the love and faith you have in your heart.Meditating through prayer just gives me a peaceful feeling inside.I guess you can see that when I pray I don't pray like maybe a minister would pray.I know all about god,however I will be the first to admit I do not know a lot about the bible.
I understand the meaning of what the bible says but I do not understand a lot of the words.I basically should say I use meditation to just talk to god.I believe that the way I talk to god is the same way that people may pray to god. I went to church today and the minister was talking about another minister that liked to tell everyone he knew about everything he has done good in his life. He bragged so much that he really didn't have the time to listen to what the people in his church needed. I guess you could say even though he preached an excellent sermon and did everything a minister should do,He just really couldn't see that his pride was taking over his life.
After meditating for a few seconds are minister went on to tell a story of a very religious Christian man and a tax collector walked into a temple at the same time.You could tell when the tax collector walked in everyone stayed away from him because he was not well liked.The Christian man prayed that he would not ever turn out to be anything like the tax collector.The tax collector said a simple prayer asking god that he may be worthy of gods love.I'm sure the Christian man did a lot of good things in his life,But maybe he should have meditated about his pride.
The tax collector did not look down on anyone or asked god if he could be like someone else,he just asked to be worthy of gods love.We all have done things that we wish we could take back.We pray that god will forgive what we have done and we then feel better about ourselves.We know god can forgive us but the important thing is can we forgive ourselves.We truly cannot be happy with ourselves until we do.
I am very concerned about someone I love very much right now.She is a very good Christian person,also a very hard worker and is very sick. She never complains and has been through very much and will have to continue to go through a lot.
As I was meditating in church I felt the tears coming and all I could do is ask god over and over again to please lay his healing hands on this person I love very much. So whether you are practicing meditation through prayer to heal someone you love or to have peace in the world I can tell you the prayer you are saying will comfort you and give you peace of mind.
