Prayer has been more recently defined as the time one takes talking to God whereas Meditation has been described as time taken listening to God. I like to incorporate both these pricipals to create a "Prayer-Meditation Combination". Then there is time to talk to God, listen to God, and most importantly, time to become aware of the presence of God in you're Life.
Review some of the many prayers posted on this "Prayer Healing Website". You might accompany your Prayer time with some gentle sacred or relaxing music to enhance your Prayer atmosphere. Be aware of you're Breathing and simply notice how you're feeling. Prayer can include direct mindfull intentions for Peace, Joy, Resolution and of course Love... If you can begin to feel such things during you're Prayertime then you are beginning to feel the presence of God and a natural desire to expand this experience will ensue.
Here are a few things to keep in mind and heart as you say the prayers posted on our "Global Prayer Healing Circle" website :
Surrender your problem whole heartedly to God.
Remain Open and Humble with each and every breath you take.
Forgive all who have purposely or unintentionally hurt you.
Believe... You can be healed. Have faith. Release doubt.
Give Thanks to God for every good thing no matter how small.
Scheduling time for Prayer is no different than scheduling any other activity with the exception that Prayer may have a profound effect on how the rest of you're scheduled appointments work out. That's another way of saying "Prayer makes a difference" and can influence your thoughts, words and actions each and every day. If you have a Schedule or Appointment Book why not write in an appointment for Prayer. Your allocated "Time for Prayer" can be anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes or longer in length and you can start to think of this time as your appointment with God or your Higher Power. If you can get up 15-20 minutes earlier in the morning, the quiet time before the day's activity is one of the best times for Prayer. If this is not possible then as little as 5 minutes during a daily break or lunch period at work can work. If these options aren't applicable then evening Prayer before you go to sleep is another of my favorite times for Prayer. I reflect upon the day and pray for deeper understanding and guidance to make the next day even better and brighter. I actually prefer the early Morning and Evening Prayer Time combination. Start simple and stay focused and you're Prayer Time will expand naturally.
You're "Prayer Time" can be "Simple Quiet Time" where you just "Sit Still" and "Breathe" or it can be a time for asking questions and staying silently receptive to answers and guidance. If you're not quite sure how to start this special appointment you can certainly chose from any one of the many Prayers on this page, print it out and simply read it aloud or silently during your "Prayer Time Appointment" each day.
This website is dedicated to the memory to all the faithfully departed Souls of past, future & current generations who are in the process of there earthly translations and heavenly ascensions... I call upon all the Angel's of Mercy and Compassion to welcome them home...
Please join with me in lighting a candle for them each day and may they rest in everlasting peace...
On 15 May 2005 millions of Christians from 156 nations in the world united in the first ever Global Day of Prayer. Christians gathered in different venues, seeking God's face in repentance and prayer for the transformation of their communities and nations.
Driven by Hab. 2:14 "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea", the dream is to mobilize Christians from every single nation in the world to participate in the Global Day of Prayer over the next few years until the year 2010. However, the focus is not only on a single day of prayer, but to see a lifestyle of prayer established that will transform communities. This move of prayer is still miraculously expanding. In 2006 millions of Christians from 199 nations united in prayer and in 2007 even more Christian from 204 nations participated. On Pentecost Sunday, (usually the 2nd Sunday in May), the nations of the world will once again unite in the Global Day of Prayer.
