The good thing about a circle is that it has no beginning or an end. If you make yourself part of a praying circle you will be praying for yourself and others or someone will be praying for you.While it may be possible for you to get things done by yourself, you will get more done with divine help.
As far as we know the surest way to getting divine help is through prayers. Last month when I was speaking to abbot at a monastery, he said the biggest problem we have today, is that we are not praying enough. He said the monks were not praying enough, lay people were not praying enough, parents and their their children were not praying enough. How many times do you pray everyday?
You have to keep your road to success simple and easy to implement, if not you will be derailed by distractions. Your distractions could be your desires, temptations or envy of others.Here are three simple ways to stay humble and prayerful in 2016.
The first way is to go to confession. Fewer people take time to go to confession as more and more people either prefer to rationalize their sins or justify their actions. The truth is we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We need to admit our short comings to God and ask for His help through confessions. Admitting your mistakes and asking for help will give the spiritual re-enforcement you will need for the journey ahead.
simple step that will help you to get better results and more fulfillment in your daily life would to pray more consistently. You can do this by presenting your daily struggles to God. We get so caught up in our daily challenges and struggles that we forget that we are not alone. The God created us and put us on this earth wants us to succeed.However, if we decide to ignore Him by not regularly asking for help, then we have ourselves to blame. It was because Jesus knew the importance of prayers in our lives that He said we should pray with ceasing. One way to surround yourself with an endless stream of prayers is to become a member of a praying circle.
The third simple step that will help you to become more spiritually victorious in 2016, will be to take action. If you do not take action after praying, it will be impossible for you to achieve any positive results.Do not let the fear of failure prevent you from taking action.
I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate. Thankfully there are a few countries in the world like the United States in which a day is set aside each day for the whole nation to give thanks. This is supposed to be a time when friends and family gather together to show appreciation and gratitude for the gift of life and the many blessings from God. The good news is that we can make thanksgiving a daily habit.
This will help us develop a consistent and easy to apply format that will help us deal with stress, minimize adverse health effects and continue to grow spiritually. The more you try to resist the devil in your daily life through an attitude of gratitude anchored in daily thanksgiving, the more the evil one will for ways to disrupt and destroy life. Do not forget to say , ” Thank You Jesus” in every situation in which you find self.
Saying thank you to Jesus, everyday will help you to deal with anxiety and depression. Each time, you find your self, dealing with a new situation, stay in the moment and begin remind yourself of why you are thankful.Look inside yourself, look at your friends, your family and your community.
Be thankful for your daily miracles and the miracles God has done for others. Everyday, people openly confess about the blessings they have received from God, since they started saying the Thank You Jesus rosary . Remember that the more you thank God for what he has done for you, the more He will be pleased with you!
Make prayer the central activity of daily life. Try to form the habit of praying in the middle of your daily activities. It will help you take things easy and enjoy life. Do not let the little disagreements and misunderstandings of daily life disturb your peace and disrupt your communion with God.
Do you remember your childhood days when you lived life carefree? We didn’t care about the things we didn’t know because we were just too oblivious of the things that might bother us.Besides we could always go to our parents or some other grown-ups and complain. We had trust that everything would be alright.
Sadly as we got older, we lost this trust and started to find life less enjoyable because of the challenges of daily living like death, loving and parting, success and failure of our projects.
Despite the difficulty situations life might throw at us, we have to remember that our happiness depends on how we look at the events of our life. It does not necessarily depend on the event it self. Through our prayers we can influence our thoughts and our actions.
Through prayers and trust in God we can learn to cherish the simple things that makes like go round. You can learn to live positively by believing in the power of daily kindness, honesty, imagination, and forgiveness.
Take it easy and learn to laugh at your mistakes. You might remember the time when you were delivering your speech and your started by not greeting the host and hostess of the event, nor the special guests of honor.It was embarrassing and there were a few giggles.
Surround yourself with what you love. Forming the habit of daily meditation, it will help you to focus on what really matters in life. Pray so that you can learn to forgive and be forgiven.Do not let others take away your joy.Be thankful to God everyday and strive to improve daily.
Don’t let others drag you down by their actions and comments. Keep away from those that drag you down. Cut off those who only find negative things to say about you and never see anything positive tell you.See yourself as a blessed child of God.
Alter your way of thinking. If you can’t do it yourself. Ask for Divine help.When you’re being ridiculed, criticized about your family background, or condemned for past mistakes, put on deaf ears. Don’t believe everything you hear. Remember that with the combination of self-help and God’s blessings you cannot fail.Pray , take it easy and enjoy!!!!!!
Do not let your daily circumstances overwhelm you and prevent you from doing your best to thrive everyday. Life can be challenging and some days turn out to be more difficult than others. However, this does not mean that we should powerlessly sit back and take zero action.Here are 3 ways to empower yourself and thrive.
The first way to do this is to make pray part of our daily lives. Make out time to pray throughout the circumstances that make up your day.Don’t get discouraged because you were in a hurry in the morning and you did not get time to pray. Your prayer does not have to be formal. Just share your thoughts for the day with the maker of the universe and ask for wisdom and guidance. Listen then take action.
The second way, you can use prayers to empower yourself, would be to avoid distractions. Pray that you do not get distracted through your thoughts and actions.Ask for focus, so that you can do things that will help you become more productive and successful. If you do not do this, you will find yourself avoiding the tasks that can make a real difference in your life and empower you. You will end up wasting time on arguments, gossip and emotional dead-ends.
The third way to empower yourself and thrive is to take action. While we should always pray for divine assistance and protection, we cannot forget that God helps those who help themselves.We can only help ourselves if we take daily action that will help us accomplish our goals.It means that through our daily prayers we should ask for the wisdom to focus on the task at hand and the energy to carry out our daily activities and tasks. We should never forget that our sufficiency is from God and with His help all things are possible.
