BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU PRAY FOR. YOU CAN GET IT AND REGRET IT!




BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU PRAY FOR. YOU CAN GET IT AND REGRET IT!
Once upon a time a gahtrillion years ago, I was taught to pray by my Grandma Minnie. She told me to "Ask God for whatever I wanted, and if I prayed hard and long enough in front of the Friday night Shabbos candles, God would listen to me."
Some of my prayers got answered but did not bring happiness. I pondered this for many years until studying with a plethora of gurus from assorted spiritual beliefs. One very important concept came out of the years invested in my studies. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU PRAY FOR. YOU CAN GET IT AND REGRET IT!
To bring it down to simple terms, I re-learned how to pray. Always, before asking Almighty Mind for the goal, I preface it by saying, "In the right and perfect way in YOUR eyes I ask....." For me to pretend I know what is "right and perfect" is silly. I do not. The unhappy answered prayers proved it beyond any shadow of any doubt to me. Think or meditate a little about this concept, and please let me know your thoughts? Blest Be. Ruby *o*

No matter what your religious belief, it seems to help if lots of sincere emotion is part of it. Thanks for the blog. It makes good sense to me. anon in Chicago

Oh, we get caught up in our egos and pray for what we want and now what we need. And what we want is a momentary infatuation and something we should never bother the Universe to provide for us. We need to pray for what we need, and becuase none of us is an island unto ourselves we are therefore praying for all of us, and this is something the Almighty can really enjoy answering.
 
I have learned that words are very important(power of prayer).So are thoughts. I can only ask my spirit guide(G-d) to guide, protect and clense me with his divine light and devine love. I believe all prayers should begin this way and then keep it simple.eg."Please take my anger and insecurities. I do not need or want them anymore". I think, for the most part, people's communciation style's are so different they think they are communciating one thing and it is percieved by other's differently. Communcating with a higher spirit leaves much room for interpretation. Great blog.
