I played golf in high school. I was taught the technique of how to visualize each shot. I would feel myself swing that club and then watch as my ball landed in the exact spot I intended it to go. When I was ready, I would step up to that ball with absolute faith. Drawing the club back, I put all my energy into the swing. I turned that ball loose, because I already knew where it was going to land.
We need to visualize our prayers. They donít need to be formal or fussy, they just need to be thoughts or words straight from our heart. We need to direct our prayer with absolute faith, already knowing where it is going to land. We all see people praying and we donít interrupt, because we know God is listening to them.
Prayers start with a thought of please or thank you. That thought is like a tiny spark. We then formulate words as we begin to pray. The words fan that spark and bring it up to a glow. The passion for our prayer intensifies as we speak with raw urgency, enthusiasm, or delight. The glow is transformed into soft clean white light. We have total faith that these are the words that will be heard by God. That light is now pure energy and shoots straight up to the heavens. All creatures take note, and encourage the energy as it passes by, for they are aware that someone is speaking to God. Much respect is given to the energy of a prayer.
James 5:16 - Ö.The effective, earnest prayer of a righteous man is powerfully effective.
Dear Father in Heaven, hear our prayer, see our prayer, feel our prayer. We come to you with an open heart, willing to accept however you choose to honor our prayer. Amen.
