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

I have heard of that...I once had a friend tell me that when I pray I should say something like "God, if this is how you think this should be then please do such and such"

Thanks for the reminder...it is easy to forget this.
