What are the blessings that a prayerful life offers?


One great effect of prayer is that it enables the soul to command the body. By obedience I make my body submissive to my soul, but prayer puts my soul in command of my body.
Oswald Chambers
We must pray for more prayer, for it is the world's mightiest healing force
Frank C. Laubach

Prayers Strengthen Your Body

Real change begins from the inside out.

We all have heard of the old proverb of 'mind over matter'. It means that at the cause of physical manifestation is intelligence or thought. In a practical sense, the 'meaning' we assign to events or circumstances in our lives determines how we respond to them.

And it is though our responses, the things we do or don't do, - that creates the circumstances, people and events that we currently have in our lives.

It is through our thoughts therefore that we create our world. If you want to change things in the external, in the physical, in the world, - you have to change the nature of your perceptions, or what you choose to think about things.

The effect of changing your mental outlook, changes the actions the body is taking, - and you begin creating more 'fruitful results'.

Even more than that, changing your thoughts, changes the biochemistry of the body itself. It is the cause of fundamental healing, as the medical science of psychoneuroimmunology has shown.

The influence of prayer on the human mind and body is as demonstrable as that of secreting glands. Its results can be measured in terms of increased physical buoyancy, greater intellectual vigor, moral stamina, and a deeper understanding of the realities underlying human relationships.
Dr. Alexis Carrel

But there is a catch. Great intelligence and the ability to remember facts alone, does not create a great life. The world is full of education and misery... The thoughts that create profound positive changes in the physical, are the ones that are aligned with God's Universal Laws or Truth: in body, mind and soul.

Wisdom is this ability to discern between the true and false, and to make the choice for the Divine. Wisdom expresses and lives the way of Truth in attitude and action, - for it fundamentally recognizes Truth as a value, not just a 'concept'.

Prayer gives you the wisdom, to directly impact your body's health and what you extend into the world through your actions. Prayer works at the source of creation, by transforming us into the change we want to see in the world.

When using prayers, you repeatedly affirm Truth. Setting this cause set in motion, leads the mind to live the valuable.
