By Rani: What is praying? It is a spiritual communion with God, as in supplication, thanksgiving, adoration, or confession. The act or practice of praying to God.
How to Pray:
Pray with love and grief – with delight and thanksgiving, but also with authentic repentance and sincerity.
Pray from the heart – even if we pray with ‘the words of another’ they should be declared as if they are our own.
Pray with hope and total faith in God – because He knows our life.
It is best to pray directly to the ‘Father’ or ‘Jesus’.
There is a sense in which all of our prayers, even ones we pray to the Spirit or the Son, are ultimately directed to the Father, who is the Head of the Trinity.
1 Corinthians 11:3 – KJV “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.”
Keep in mind that using the word ‘God’ does not give you a direct link. As this is not the accurate spelling nor pronunciation of his name as it is too holy to speak or pronounce. In saying this intention is the most important thing of all. Empty words and not having authentic intention to heal and help all cannot be hidden.
Matthew 6:7 KJV – “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.”
Words are nothing without intention, action and reflection. Always be sure to confess your sins to the Father in order to seek reflection.
Law of Attraction
“Attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on.” The Law of Attraction is nothing new, having first appeared in print in 1877 by philosopher Helena Blavatsky.
The Law of Attraction at its core is a method to push yourself closer to your goals and desires through mental redirection. You should remember that attracting whatever you want for your own benefit will turn the karmic wheel. For all is seen and karma is a law made by God for man.
Keep in mind that attracting whatever you want for self gain will turn the karmic wheel. For all is seen and karma is a law made by God for man.
The Apostle Paul applies this law to the spiritual life in Galatians 6:7-9. He warns:
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. Whatever a man sows, he will reap in return. The one who sows to please his flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; but the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
Simply put, manifestation can be found in many parts of Christianity, and even aligns with some of the practices of Christians.
Mark 11:24 KJV – “Therefore I say unto you, What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
According to the bible, if you ask, believe and use the power of thought, you will receive through prayer. This is another reason manifesting without prayer is difficult. You will experience karmic injustice in your energetic realm if you receive anything without blessing. The reason this verse states ‘ask in prayer’ is because we know the rules you must follow in order for prayer to be heard. If you are seeking blessing with wrong intention that is not selfless you will suffer karmic injustice. Which can easily happen upon accident through manifesting and worshiping idols.
It all comes down to perspective, once again. Being obsessed with a celebrity is similar to worshiping an idol. As long as this idol is not GOD or the creator and is only admired for their stories and blessed abilities bestowed upon them from the creator, then pure intentions should personally be permissible.
In many cases, manifesting goes against God’s sovereignty due to how it is used for personal gain. Therefore, I recommend that you always begin manifesting with prayer. You can manifest for ALL after praying. Don’t manifest for yourself, always manifest and pray for everyone. Don’t manifest anything you wouldn’t pray for.
It is important to keep in mind that if you pray incorrectly, the same will happen. Because of this, I believe manifesting is more effective when done through prayer. We are already fulfilled when we give, have faith, and believe for others.
The act of praying to God, removing negative thoughts, and visualizing your blessings can be considered manifestation. Therefore I argue that it all comes down to perspective, intention and reflection. And through prayer you can ensure all of the factors you require are met.
Love and light,
