Praying for Others: Healing Power of Kindness and Caring

minutes remaining

Praying for others is unique because it’s not just about us but about showing we care for other people. Think of life as a big, colorful painting with many shapes and colors. When we pray for other people, it’s like adding bright and happy colors to this picture. Praying for someone else helps you and them; sometimes, it can even help others.

What Does It Mean to Pray for Others Positively?

When you pray positively for others, you think good thoughts for them and hope they have the best things in life. First, calm down and connect with God or the higher power you believe in. Imagine them being happy, healthy, and doing well.

Start your prayer by feeling thankful for them and picturing them surrounded by love. If they’re sick, imagine them feeling better. If they’re going through changes, think of it going smoothly. Focus on all the good things you wish for them.

Believe that your prayers can help. Say nice things about them in your prayers, like how nice or courageous they are. Take a quiet moment, then give thanks. It’s like sending a kind and hopeful message to them in your mind.

Why Praying is Good for Us and Them

Praying for others is powerful. It makes us feel closer to our beliefs and the people we pray for. It’s like building a bridge of understanding and kindness. It also helps us feel good because we do something nice for others.

When we pray for others, the good vibes naturally spread. It creates a wave of good feelings and hope.

Praying for others can make our relationships more robust and more caring.

When many people pray together, it creates a strong sense of togetherness and support.

Astounding Stories of Praying for Others

Throughout history, people have shared stories about how praying for others has made amazing things happen. These stories tell us that praying can make a difference in people’s lives and the lives of those praying.

One of the stories of the benefits for the person praying is that of Barbara Cummiskey. Barbara’s story is a remarkable account of miraculous healing. At the age of 31, Barbara, suffering from a severe case of multiple sclerosis, was admitted to a hospice, preparing for her imminent death.

However, against all odds, she started praying for others. She then experienced a miraculous recovery on her deathbed. This extraordinary turnaround was so profound that it left medical professionals astounded. Her healing was not temporary; she has remained well for over 30 years since the incident.

Praying for others is a way of giving. Consider Haanel’s explanation of the importance of giving in Part 5 of The Master Key System.

This power is from within, but we cannot receive it unless we give it. Use is the condition upon which we hold this inheritance. We are each of us but the channel through which the Omnipotent power is being differentiated into form; unless we give, the channel is obstructed and we can receive no more. This is true on every plane of existence and in every field of endeavor and all walks of life. The more we give, the more we get. The athlete who wishes to get strong must use his strength and the more he gives, the more he will get. The financier who wishes to make money must make use of the money he has, for only by using it can he get more.

Charles Haanel, The Master Key System, 5:25

To embrace the wisdom of Haanel’s teachings on giving, we can apply this to how we bless others. Just as he says, “The more we give, the more we get,” praying for others becomes a beautiful way to give blessings. By offering prayers, we open up channels of giving and receiving, enriching our lives and those we pray for.

Bringing People Together

Praying for others can bring people closer, even if they are different from each other. It shows we all care about the same things, like happiness and safety. It’s a way of showing that we’re all part of one big family.

When we pray for others, it’s like sending a helping hand from far away.

It’s not just about speaking words but about doing a good deed to improve the world.

Imagine seeing things that make you upset or frustrated in the world – instead of feeling helpless, you can pray for them.

Send your good thoughts and love towards those situations. It’s like you’re helping to fix them with your heart and mind. Praying is a powerful way to support people facing hard times or significant challenges, even if you can’t be there.

Wrapping Up: A Journey of Kindness

Praying for others is more than a tradition; it’s a way of spreading love and kindness. It helps us connect with others and make our world a kinder place. As we keep doing this, we support the people we pray for and ourselves, making life better for everyone. Let’s remember how unique and powerful this simple act can be.
