Words & Quotes about prayer by The Lady
Prayer is food for the soul. The soul thrives on prayer. The mind will resist it. The mind is a material thing.
Prayer is a way of expressing your desire, your hunger and your yearning for the Almighty, for the All That Is. And that calling out will be answered. It's just that you've got to wrestle with the material mind that would rather be distracted in a multitude of other endeavors. So it's going to take discipline to capture a state of prayer in your life.
So where do you want to be? Do you want to be with your heart's desire, your soul, your eternal self? Then commune and begin to reside within yourself in that place. Everything else is meaningless, ultimately.

to do. Fill your mind with prayer:
‘Show me the way. Show me the light.
how to find the truth that I know is there.’
What is this Love of God? What is
this experience that saints and sages throughout the ages have spoken? How is
it that a man sits alone on a mountaintop for years in stages of ecstasy,
feeling such incredible love and bliss, yet no one is around? What is it that
he is touching? What is it that he is seeing? What is it that he is
hearing? What is it that he is
"It is nothing that you can see with these eyes and ears,
mind and your senses.
It is love. But it is unlike any love you have known on
It is a love that satisfies all desires.
It is truth. But it is not
just some knowledge.
It is a knowing which satisfies all hunger and thirst for knowledge.”
Words & Quotes about prayer by Jim St. James
Most people have experienced a very natural form of prayer during times in which they’ve felt the most anguish — times in which people have felt extreme anxiety or torment about something. This kind of situation is actually a very real and natural form of prayer. Certainly it is not the prayer of religions, but it is actually a time in life when we feel deeply about something, and when we have an openness and an intense desire to receive help. These are things that are at the core of true prayer. The vulnerability and openness that often come during times of anguish help us receive some kind of insight, comfort, or clarity that helps relieve our torment and anxiety.
