Action Is Bigger Than Prayer

Published

on

In my opinion, if we petition a power outside ourselves to make something happen, selfish or beneficial, then we are petitioning in vain. This is just wishing something would happen. When I was a child, that bike I prayed for never came; not until I worked hard for it did it finally appear.’ – Scott Osterhage, Prayer And Meditation

Prayer is believed to be the communication between man and a Higher Power. Many people pray because they believe prayer can make their lives better; they believe prayer can help them become better people and make Infinite Intelligence/God give them whatever they want.

I believe in the existence of a Higher Power and I believe prayer works. However, I believe taking action is bigger than prayer because I realized that most people who get the things they want usually work towards getting them. Conversely, those who pray but don’t take action seldom get what they want.

However, even though prayer may not give you what you want, it has great psychological impacts.  Prayer can make you feel peaceful during difficult situations as it makes you believe that Infinite Intelligence is working on making your life better. It’s easier to stop being fearful and anxious when you pray and trust that Infinite Intelligence will solve all your problems.

Therefore, prayer can help you psychologically, but if you want something you must take action. For instance, if you want to have good relationships with people, you must sharpen your social skills. If you want to open yourself up to opportunities, you must be willing to take risks. And if you want to live your dreams, you must be willing to take action that moves you towards them. Prayer will not give you these things if you don’t take action.

Today, people make a big mistake of leaving everything to God instead of taking action. I live near churches and I’ve seen people who pray 100 times a day but their lives never change because they are lazy.

People must know that the universe cares more about their actions than prayers, and it will give them what they DESERVE and not what they pray for. Although prayer works, ACTION is more effective in helping you get what you want. I once read somewhere that prayer only brings what you want in the spiritual realm, but action brings it into the physical world. So, pray, but always remember to TAKE ACTION.

    Yep buddy; and action is like an active prayer, in many ways. Reaching out to God by serving humans. Love this message!

    Truth!

    You know, action is a moving prayer. It generates emotion in the people to whom we move with a positive conscience.
