“God shapes the world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil” – Mother Teresa

Nevertheless, great scriptures of The Bible, The Gita and The Koran lay stress on prayer. When, we pray we directly face with him “The Almighty”. However, the minds should be clear and focussed on him. The soul significance of prayer losses its dignity when our minds wander around. The real purpose of prayer is to communicate with God. It is the communication of the soul with the supreme soul, and which is the man’s own higher self.

Meditation and Yoga are the forms of prayer only to connect with the soul when practiced in spiritual form. The influence of prayer in any individual can be discernible in his state of cheerfulness, serenity, resourcefulness, high moral sense, humanitarianism, a genuine love and affection for all. Thus, a man who prays, loves the world around him. And, that person works for the welfare of all selflessly. Some people enchants God’s name repeatedly and some do not. Some devote their whole life for sake of the Almighty. But whatever the way or number of times an individual prays, most important is the faith, sincerity and devotion one pays towards the worship.

One may find the God in others as well and that flows out from self naturally. Praying is nonspecific, it can be done while waking up in the morning, sitting, standing, walking and even sleeping. Paying gratitude towards Him, or a simple “Thank you” can be message to our soul and inner self. And that is called true prayer; it means being connected to the supreme soul automatically.
