Prayer can solve that which cannot be solved in any other way. Prayer means closeness to the Almighty, to the absolute truth, to the source of energy, to the source of strength. When you pray whole-heartedly, your mind and heart run one-pointedly to the source. Never pray for any desires; it should always be God-centric.
When all your human efforts are exhausted, you don’t have any other way of doing anything, you don’t find any source. Then suddenly you burst out, ―Lord, help me!‖ Then grace dawns.
Here you are not praying to somebody who is outside you. Here means constant awareness. When you are praying, you have to be humble. Being humble means learning to compose yourself. Oh lord of life, oh my inner dweller, all that who gives me light, the truth; gives me power to hear, think, analyze. Who gives me power, energy to walk, to do things in the external world, oh that center of power within me. Let me draw strength directly from you…. You are the whole source of strength. This way you can pray in your own language. It means constant awareness. Who is praying to whom? You are training your mind and a particular part of your mind that is called your Ego. You are making your Ego aware of this truth. Otherwise Ego refuses to accept that. If you really want to be humble, and you want to enjoy life, you‘ll have to change your Ego.
Techniques of Prayers
- One's thought should be one-pointed and one should be fully concentrated on his/her Guru. e.g a bulb will produce light only if the positive and negative are combined.
- One should have full faith on his/her Guru; just like a child has on her mother. Faith should only be on one and not many.
- The prayer should not for someone else bad. It should always be for good.
Types of Prayers

Warnings for Prayers
An affirmation or thought, is like a seed. And it is governed by the Universal Law of cause and effect, “What you sow you shall reap”.
