Heartfelt Prayer Gives Spiritual Sustenance

  • Rating: 5 after 1 vote
The impulse to pray is natural. What is important, however, is not the physical act of praying but the spiritual state induced by prayer. Brief and joyful prayer is superior to long, wearying prayer. Though prayer may help obtaining specific material ends, it is more important to pray for conformity tot eh will of God. The highest prayer is offered only out of love for God.
There are many moments when we think: “God has established everything and executes all affairs after the best order. Therefore what is the wisdom is beseeching, supplicating and seeking help?” A seeker of bounty needs to beseech the Glorious Beautiful One. When you supplicate to the Lord and seek bounty from his ocean, this supplication brings light to your heart, life to your soul and exultation to your being.
During your supplication to God and your reciting, ‘Thy name is my feeling’, consider how your heart is cheered, your soul delighted by the spirit of the love of God, and your mind attracted to the kingdom of God. By these attractions your ability and capacity increases. When the vessel is enlarged the water increases, and when thirst grows the bounty of the cloud becomes agreeable to the taste of man.
If one friend feels love for another, he will wish to say so. Though he knows that the friend is aware that he loves him he will still wish to say so…God knows the wishes of our hearts. But the impulse to pray is a natural one, springing from your love for God. Prayer need not be in words, but rather in thought and attitude. However, if the love and desire are lacking, it is useless to try to force them. Words without love mean nothing.
If a person talks to you as an unpleasant duty, with no love or pleasure in his meeting with you, you won’t wish to converse with him.
Worship God in such ways that if your worship leads you to the fire, no alteration in your adoration would be produced, and so likewise if your recompense should be paradise. This worship benefits the one True God.
Should you worship him because of fear, this would be unseemly in the sanctified court of His presence, and could not be regarded as an act by you dedicated to the oneness of His Being. Or if your gaze should be on paradise, and you should worship him while cherishing such a hope, you would make God’s creation a partner with him, not withstanding the fact that paradise is desired by us.
Fire and paradise both bow and prostrate themselves before God. That which is worthy if His essence is to the worship Him for His sake, without fear of fire or hope of paradise. Although when true worship is offered, the worshipper is delivered from the fire, and enters the paradise of Gods good pleasure, yet such should not be the motive of your act. However Gods favour and grace ever flow in accordance with the exigencies of His inscrutable wisdom.
The most acceptable prayer is the one offered with utmost spirituality and radiance. The more detached and purer the prayer, the most acceptable is it in the presence of God.
