Is Prayer A Priority To You?
“If one friend loves another, is it not natural that he should wish to say so? Though he knows that he is aware of his love, does he still not wish to tell him of it? . . . It is true that God knows the wishes of all hearts, but the impulse to pray is a natural one, springing from man’s love to God.” ~ `Abdu’l-Bahá
As I ask the question this month, what do you make a priority in your prayers? I forgot to ask if you pray at all and if prayer is even a priority to you. If you know that God created you. And He is the All-Knowing, the All- Wise. And that God knows what you want and need. Then why should you pray?
Because prayer is the food of the soul. When you pray you are taking in spiritual nourishment! Prayer increases your capacity to enjoy spiritual gifts and to experience true happiness. Prayer helps you to advance towards God and not lose sight of your special destiny. This is why you should pray that through the love of God your soul may develop and be strengthened.
