The ABC's of Prayer

The ABC’s of Prayer

“The deepest thing I’ve learned from you,” Linda told me, “is that we should pray for our loved ones who have passed away. I didn’t think that they needed our prayers any more.” It’s something I hear a lot actually. In this post, I’ll talk about why your prayers are needed.

If I were a betting man, I’d wager that there are people who, even after their loved one(s) ask for prayers during a reading, still don’t do so. I don’t think it’s because they don’t want to, but that they’re not sure how.

There’s a story I heard about an angel who was told to find the person on Earth whose prayers had the most power to reach Heaven. When he finally came back, this is what he reported. “In my journey, I found many peoole who prayed withot feeling, or conviction. I found people who prayed so that others would see them. Many prayed hoping they are being heard, but not really believing they are. Then I heard a young boy reciting his ABC’s. He asked God to take the letters and form them into words that expressed what was in his heart.”

Grief is another way of saying, “I love you.” Praying for someone you loved, and lost, tells them the same thing. Praying for your loved ones on the Other Side keeps you connected to one another; and it helps you to hear, and feel, their guidance and inspiration while you are still here without the need for someone like me.

All too often people tell me, “But I don’t know what to say.” It’s not the words you use that’s important. It’s the sincerity of the love you express.

Crying is good prayer. The souls, and God, know that tears are how our heart speaks when words cannot describe how much we hurt.
