What if God is MORE than the stories we believe?

Praying to God?


If God is God, it is highly unlikely that “He” needs prayers of praise or petition or thanks.
We, on the other hand, do need prayer as an ego discipline because it is Soooooo EASY to start thinking we are a tiny bit better or less than X, Y, or Z.

Prayer is letting go judgments which keep us apart.
Prayer is letting go assumptions which seem to tie us together, while actually locking us into little enclaves of acceptibility.
Prayer is being present with each other, lifting our minds and hearts together in union with all that is Good.
Prayer is the experience and practice of our oneness with each other, the universe and God.

Praying isn’t about God.  It’s about us and our relationships!  It’s about getting Real with ourselves and All Other.  That’s all any Real God could want.  Ya think?

    Made me stop and think about praying and what is it really about. Thanks Jeam

  2. It took me a long time to realize that prayer was really for us and not for God — not that He doesn’t listen, but he can listen in to us any time he wants, He doesn’t need to wait until we’re ready to talk. 🙂

  3. For me prayer is a creative act that I make when I am caught between chaos and order. I admit to a lack of control. I let go and let be and see what happens. Then I acknowledge a divine artist who fashions an evolutionary way out for me.

  4. No, I think you’re talking nonsense.
    1. Read the New Testament to see what Jesus had to say about prayer.
    2. Read the Lord’s Prayer to see what we are told to ask God for.
    3. Stop being self-centered.
