I'm asking input from you because I'm in process of writing about how blessings not recognized, are mistaken as unanswered prayers. Your answers to this question will help tremendously. Thanks.

I don't think of prayer as having to be verbal. Thought is prayer. Open-mindedness, to me, is meditation, allowing intuitively answers in. Your prayer may already be answered by being provided the means to the result you ask for. Must do your part.
This is why I asked this ?. I'm not saying you are, but what if sometimes we pray for the wrong thing? Using the hard times of others as example, should I pray for their resolution or pray for knowledge of what part I can take, if any, in helping?thx
For me it can't be the wrong thing, everyone pray for different things. I pray for strength mostly and for my family/friends to get a boost during hard times and some strength. Its all going to work out in the end, regardless of prayer or not
How many times I've heard people going to do some kind of job and couldn't finish because they left the tool needed to finish behind because they didn't think they would need it. That's a good analogy of a missed blessing.
I love your response. You are right. Your will is a gift. Not a loan. God don't want it back. If he did, he wouldn't have given us freedom of choice and the opportunity to ruin it. He just hopes we want to do the right things.
Nice to see you again IDONO, it's been a long time. I hope all is well with you.
Thanks. You too. Not enough hours in the day. But hopefully, doing more right things than wrong things. Sometimes you just can't tell. And, hopefully, we'll bump into each other more often. Always a pleasure.
I'm sorry Dave36 but there just isn't enough space here to give an understandable example. I don't want to confuse anybody even more. Watch for my hub in the near future. Maybe I will be more clear. You can comment there without space limits.
I'm pretty sure we can't pray from the mind, & any prayers from the mind won't lead us to contentment..So i ask myself deep down by meditating,& then I'm guided by my intuition/instinct/heart/soul/higher self..Not sure exactly what, but i kno
Dave 36- I don't know if anyone else understands your comment, but to me, it's as clear as a bell. If answers to prayer are answered, I believe they are answered just the way you described. There are no booming voices from the sky. Great comment.
Great to meet you buddy, as i haven't met many people who know where I'm coming from..Have you seen a sign or clue along the way, because i reckon i have, & it's not just as simply explained as "cause & effect"..Hurry up with your hub buddy!l
Dave36- I'm on it!
