Prayer involves physics

Since May 7 is National Prayer Day I thought I would offer some bits of information on the science behind the dynamics of praying.

Everyone can understand that prayer is communicating with God. We use prayer specifically to ask for something from God. However, what usually goes unnoticed is that the act of praying involves real science as well.

God covers all the bases including the laws of nature.

In the same way that higher vibrations (shorter wavelengths) are absorbed by lower vibrations, heavenly influences flow more freely into our hearts and minds when we humble ourselves before God. That is why we usually bow or kneel during prayer – to lower ourselves before the Lord’s greatness.

With prayer, we put ourselves into a more passive state whereby God’s Love and Wisdom can become more active in our lives. Prayer allows us to open up and tap into the deeper functioning of our non-physical mind and spirit. (During our busy daily schedules God is made passive and we are active.)

So even when you do not think your prayers are being answered something spiritually beneficial is always gained.

The most important thing you can pray for is the spiritual power to LOVE everyone.

Such a request requires profound humility.
