People seek meditation or prayer life to seek a higher state of being. So many of us fail, because we lack the discipline to pray. The result is something else occupies our minds, and so often whatever else occupies our conscious is unhealthy.
Acknowledge Gods power is acknowledging our limitations. Asking for God’s will is thinking outside of ourselves to be less independent and be more interdependent in our relationships, which is how humans are actually designed to live. Thanking God for any love and the blessings of life acknowledges how fortunate we are and grateful and opens us to thanking others. Asking God to forgive us and keep us from fault once again acknowledges our limitations.
Prayer and meditation comes in many different forms. I choose the Christian faith, but there are many people using other methods and ways to help achieve purpose and meaning in life. Getting someone towards the good is what is important. The discipline and resisting temptation to do things that hurt you is what is important.
The reason why this starts with prayer is because our words and our actions are reflections of what we think. If shallow thoughts occupy someone’s mind they are a shallow person. This can be lustful, depression and many other things. Something will occupy the space in your mind. Prayer gives our minds something to occupy ourselves with and a chance to push out the bad. A prayerful mind is one that speaks and acts good.
