Power of Prayer

Views of various counsellors are presented here.

---Knowing and unknowingly people pray. Power in Prayer is a universal truth. It is just as people know that Ghee and Cheese are hidden in milk but they come out with effort.

---It is a fact that prayer brings down stress, meditation bring down aging, surrendering helps in relief and chanting ‘OM’ bring down bleeding.

---Mother Tressa prayed and felt the presence of God and got things at the nick of the moment. Abdul Kalam said that power of prayer releases your mind power. Personal experience conforms that having trust in GOD helps when you or your people are in trouble. Prayer is a nourishing activity for soul.

---Any thought has energy and vibration and has its own effect- Positive or Negative. Through prayer it is possible to change negative to positive energy that creates hope. That is the power of prayer.

---Some feel power of prayer through interaction with some person that may be father, teacher, counsellor, healer and to some (s)he may be a saint personality. The interaction may even be through distant prayer.

---The power of prayer starts from the intent. Through prayer we feel ‘ONE’ with the universe and feel connected with it. Buddhism has great faith in prayer and personal experience maintains that it has healing power as people become positive in their thinking.

---The words of Mother Tressa “God stays in the heart of People” make us belief in the inner strength that it imparts. Prayer enhances memory power and helps in acquiring knowledge.

---The believers have experiences that praying is effective even if medication has not been effective. Prayer has even been found to be effective in healing cancer cases. The prayer and chanting of spiritual gurus, friends, relatives and others have been proved to be effective in healing terminal cases and help in early recovery from accident cases.

---Florence Nightingale, founder of modern nursing, also said that Power of Prayer is very effective.

---Never question the power of God. If you walk the path of Goodness God helps. Creator’s mysterious way of listening and responding is amazing when the prayer is a complete surrender. Blessings come instant or in disguise.

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.

With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!

Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Ali Khwaja
