What is the secret to leading a blessed life through prayer?

How to Wisely Cultivate Prayer

In the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee.
King David

The entire day receives order and discipline when it acquires unity. This unity must be sought and found in morning prayer. The morning prayer determines the day.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find Him the rest of the day.
John Bunyan

Like in farming, there are cycles and season during the process of growth. Timing is essential.

The most critical time for prayer is in the morning. Begin your day with prayer and cultivating a wise thought within your heart, mind and soul. There's no better time for it.

Your morning is a 'high leverage moment'. It's capable of creating maximum results for minimal effort. Therefore, do then what all wise men and women do, - PRAY. The morning prayer will positively set up your entire day!

The man who says his prayers in the evening is a captain posting his sentries.
After that, he can sleep.
Charles Baudelaire

Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
Mahatma Gandhi

Start and end your day with prayer. Turn to God like a child. Persevere in daily prayer. It stretches the heart, which in turn opens itself up to God, and God offers Himself to us as a gift."
Mother Teresa

The second most important time for prayer is in the evening.

The evening prayer balances the morning one. As a 'beginning' also presupposes an ending, a consummation, an achievement or goal, - the evening prayer ties together a day that is spent in the intention to be united with God. Together, the morning and evening prayer 'frame the day'.

Bring a great conclusion to your day by praying, reading the wise words of spiritual teacher, reflecting on their ideas... etc.

It is important to pray in the evenings for it allows your mind to rest upon elevated thoughts. It is during the night that your subconscious mind neurologically links up the ideas of the day, and stores them in your mind to better serve you. As research has shown, the events you engage in prior to retiring, - are best memorized, and they define the quality of sleep you have.

As the proverb states, 'In the morning, prayer is the key that opens to us the treasures of God's mercies and blessings; in the evening, it is the key that shuts us up under His protection and safeguard'. These are the two most important moments in your day.

Prayer, makes these moments transformational.

These simple habits of praying in the morning and evening, will make a massive difference in your state of being, your attitude and the results you'll create.

This is like daily watering seeds of Greatness.

The quiet hour of prayer is one of the most favorable opportunities He has,
in which to speak to us seriously.

The other aspect of wise cultivation is the process of 'deep root nourishment.'

To really connect with God and be fundamentally changed from the inside out, - take one day of the week to really 'saturate' your body, mind and soul in divine thoughts. Once a week, - preferably on the holy day of Sunday, - spend a holy hour in God's presence.

This act of 'immersion in prayer' affects you at a whole new level. You will experience deeply and personally God's presence in your life. Through Love, Truth, Beauty and Freedom, you can permanently expand your character and fulfillment you find in life - far, far, far beyond what any drug or worldy experience can offer. As the poet Oliver Wendell Holmes put it, 'once a mind is expanded by a new idea, it never returns again to its original dimension.'

The time of business does not with me differ from the time of prayer, and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen, while several persons are at the same time calling for different things, I possess God as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament.
Brother Lawrence

Constant prayer quickly straightens out our thoughts.
The Desert Fathers

Remember that you can pray any time, anywhere. Washing dishes, digging ditches, working in the office, in the shop, on the athletic field, even in prison -- you can pray and know God hears! Avail yourself of the greatest privilege this side of heaven.
Billy Graham

And the ultimate way to experience this permanent transformation, is to take 40 days out for prayer. This will help you irreversibly expand your mind for the better. It has been the secret to all the spiritual Greats - from Moses to Jesus, to Mohammad, to Buddha...

A wonderful and powerful thing happens when you choose this.

Once you have habituated these prayer practices over a period of 40 days, you'll notice that it becomes very natural to extend these moments beyond their formalized periods... You'll begin to insert these 'parentheses of power' in many hours of the day, and to make each moment 'brilliant'!

According to Jesus, if you sow and cultivate Godly Words in good soil, - you ought to expect a return on investment of a hundred, sixty or thirty times what you have sown. (see Matthew 13:8) As God Himself has designed this system, - it is as accurate as any of His scientific laws.

If you are willing to obey his laws, you can have a hundred fold return on the time and resources that you have invested with!

Now, that is the highest yielding investment anywhere isn't it?
