Are you familiar with the power of prayer?

Prayer has been a timeless practice across various cultures and beliefs.

It’s a way to connect with a higher power, seek guidance, and manifest our desires.

But have you ever wondered why some prayers seem to work miracles while others fail?

The answer might lie in the way we approach prayer and the subsequent steps we take.

Let’s explore the five essential steps of prayer that can help you unlock its true power. (These are the 5 steps of prayer written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi in the book “Fire and Gold” by Brian Kurzius, p.160).

Step 1: Pray and Meditate

The journey begins with the first step—praying and meditating. Find a quiet space where you can focus your thoughts and intentions. Drawing inspiration from the prayers of the Manifestations, revered figures in your faith, can infuse your prayer with tremendous power.

As you pray, allow your mind to enter a state of deep contemplation, and linger in the silence for a few precious moments.

Step 2: Make a Decision

During your contemplation, you may find a decision or resolution taking shape within you. This decision could appear daunting, so please don’t doubt it or reject it, even if it looks like it is nearly impossible to accomplish. 

If it feels like an answer to your prayers or a solution to your problem, hold onto it firmly. This decision is the seed of your manifestation.

Step 3: Embrace Determination

Many falter at this stage. The decision that was born during your contemplation must now be embraced with unwavering determination. Otherwise, it becomes merely a wish or a vague desire. But when determination takes root, you’re ready to move forward.

Step 4: Have Faith

As you progress, nurture your faith and confidence that the necessary power will flow through you. Trust that the right path will reveal itself, the right door will open, and you will receive the guidance, thoughts, messages, principles, or resources needed to fulfill your decision.

Believe in your heart that the universe will provide what you seek.

Step 5: Act as Though It’s Already Answered

Now, here’s where the magic truly happens. Act as though your prayer has already been answered. Approach life with tireless and ceaseless energy, knowing that your desires are on their way to fruition.

As you put this newfound energy into your actions, you become a magnet, attracting more power and opportunities into your life, until you become a pure channel for divine energy to flow through you.

Many people pray, but they often overlook the latter part of the first step, failing to truly meditate and connect with their inner selves. Some may reach a decision but lack the determination to set it through. Fewer still have the unwavering confidence that the universe will provide what they need.

But the real key to successful prayer lies in acting as though your request has already been granted.

I always try to remember these profound words: “Greater than the prayer is the spirit in which it is uttered, and greater than the way it is uttered is the spirit in which it is carried out.”

Embrace these five steps, and you’ll find yourself on a transformative journey toward manifesting your deepest desires through the power of prayer.

I wish you lots of success on this brave, exciting, wonderful journey and much love!
