Power of Prayer
Praying is a regular ritual - for one when he starts the day, for his children at morning meeting in school, a nearly flawless daylong exercise for his grandmother. It is normal to all religions, so we have something in common with every community.
If one has ever been surprised what means Praying is all about. Prayer is not only devotion; it is also an identical fulfillment of man's worshipping spirit - the most prevalent form of energy that one can make.
The authority of appeal on the human mind and body is a unmistakable as that of secreting glands. Its effects can be counted in terms of extended physical vigor, better educated vigour, right strength, and deeper understanding of the realities of fundamental human relationship.

"O Thou by whom we come to God,
The Life, the Truth, the Way -
The path of prayer Thyself hath trod,
Lord, teach us how to pray".
What is a Prayer ?
Prayer is more than words. It's listening, seeing, feeling, as well
No one could give you a better explanation than Seren Kierkegeard, the well known Danish philosopher and theologian who said that an individual who prays his Lord is not giving any transformation to the God, but it transforms him, one who prays sincerely. The Tranquility, power to connect to oneself, and taking home better qualities could only come through a sincere prayer.
Why is Praying significant
A prayer is a time to bond with the everlasting power within ourselves: for those who accept as true, it is God: for those who don't, it is one's soul. A relaxed way to sit or stand and simply talk to that power - like one does with a family member - is all you need to do. You can speak about your day, things you love to do, communicate your fears, and seek way outs.
One promising reason to pray could be to thank God for all fine things in life. And since we are all talking about involving to the power we can't see but definitely can feel, it is compulsory that we be quiet.
When in prayer you clasp your hands,
God opens His.
Is there Power in Prayer ?
Prayer is an energy as real as terrestrial gravity. A patient, who has a chronic disease, after all other therapy has failed, lifted out of his disease and melancholy by the peaceful effort of prayer. It is the only power in the earth that seems to defeat the so called 'laws of nature," the circumstances on which prayer has significantly done this have been termed 'miracles'. But a stable, quieter miracle takes place hourly in the hearts of men and women who have revealed that prayer supplies them with a balanced flow of sustaining power in their daily lives.
Too many people view prayer as a formalized custom of words, a refuge for weaklings, or a childish request for material things. We sadly underestimate prayer when we imagine it in these terms, just as we should under assess rain by describing it as something that fills the birdbath in our grounds. Most likely understood, prayer is a mature activity obligatory to the fullest growth of personality - the crucial integration of man's highest faculties. Only in prayer do we attain that total and harmonious congregation of body, mind and spirit which gives the delicate human reed its unshakable strength.
Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers.
Pray for powers equal to your tasks.

"I have been driven many times to my knees by the over whelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me seemed insufficient for the day." ....Abraham Lincoln
Your Sincere Prayer
Just remember always that God loves you. Talk to him, knowing of His kindly feelings for you
If you make a routine of sincere prayer, your life will be very evidently and profoundly changed. Prayer stamps with its permanent mark our actions and character. A harmony of bearing, a facial and bodily response is pragmatic in those whose inner lives are thus enhanced. Within the depths of consciousness a flame provokes. And man witness himself. He realizes his selfishness, his stupid pride, his fears, his greed, his mistakes. He builds up a sense of moral responsibility, rational humility. Thus begins a voyage of the soul towards the kingdom of grace.

........................Oracle of Tatsuta
Lord, what a change within us one short hour
Spent in Thy presence will avail to make -
What heavy burdens from our bosom take,
What parched grounds refresh as with a shower!
We kneel, and all around us seems to lower;
We rise, and all, the distant and the near,
Stands forth in sunny outline, brave and clear,
We kneel, how weak; we rise, how full of power!
Why, therefore, should we do ourselves this wrong,
Or others, -that we are not always strong;
That we are overborne with care,
That we should ever weak or heartless be,
Anxious or troubled, when with us is prayer,
And joy and strength and courage are with Thee?
