Meditative Prayer – Part 1



Meditative Prayer – Part 1

How do you feel knowing that when you pray, something will definitely be changed, removed or improved in your life?  You’re probably saying to yourself, “She’s mistaken.  I don’t know how it feels because most of my prayers are not answered.”  My question is, “Why not?”

Rest assured every prayer is answered.  Everything you focus your attention on demands a response.  Matthew 7:8 says, “For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Prayer is the act of issuing an earnest request, petition, or entreaty.  A person praying is having a dialogue or conversation with God.

The word meditation comes from the Latin word meditari, which means to concentrate.  In Western culture, meditation is sometimes thought of as concentrative meditation where you are focusing on a specific thought or request.  Modern forms of meditation have been called ‘prayer’.

My definition of Meditative Prayer is using focused attention and guidance to make a request in a dialogue with Higher Intelligence, God.  It is a method by which you abandon yourself to the feeling of the desire you want to have fulfilled.

Meditative Prayer is not sitting and emptying your mind of all thought.   It is being focused using relaxation, confidence, and faith in letting your petition be known.

Mark 11:24 states, “I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Many times we ask; no plead for a change in circumstances only to find more of the same.  There is a conditional state of mind you must assume in order for your prayer to be answered.  You must first believe that you have received your request before it shows up in your world.

You must have no doubt that it has been granted in the invisible (heavenly realm) and is waiting to be received in the physical world.

How can you believe that you have something when you are in lack?  How can you believe when the world around you is falling apart?  Why do you lack faith?  Simply put, it is because you have not recognized when you have received an answer to a prayer you may have made in the past.

Take a moment to remember a time in your life when something unexpected appeared (an item, money, a person, a job, choose anything).  Once you have identified the item, think about the first time you mentioned having, being or doing what you have chosen.   Be assured you thought about, mentioned or requested it to show up in your life (good or bad).   If you are not sure about how to find these nuggets of manifestations, take a look at the category of my blog called “Manifestation Log.”  In particular look at the blogs called Begonias and Salt Grass Steak House.

Get out your journal and start recording the correlation between your words, prayers, and thoughts to what shows up in your life.  When you realize you have been manifesting continuously, unknowingly, then you can start requesting in small ways (a cup of coffee, a parking space at the mall, hooking up your camper).  As you see and feel the fulfillment of your requests and your faith increases you can begin asking for more important things such as a job, home, vehicle, relationship, etc.

You must have the faith that your request will be answered.  This faith is built by recognizing small requests showing up in your life.
