Life is uncertain. All days are not alike. Our life goes through several ups and downs. One moment we spend with full of happiness and the other we spend with full of sadness. When we go through good times we may not thank God for the all these happy moments. But when we go through a tough time we cannot help our self from doing Prayer For Healing. We want someone listen to our story of sorrow.

What is the Best Prayer for Healing?
I wonder when one ask what’s the best Prayer for Healing. This story will help us to know what is the best Prayer for Healing. Once there was a man. He was in great trouble. Everything was going wrong in his life. Neither his relatives nor his wealth was in his favor. He was suffering all: Mentally, Physically, Emotionally and Economically. He couldn’t see no way out of his crisis. He had tried all his level best to get things settled, but all in vain. After all this, he dropped his knees in Prayer and said, “Lord I cannot go like this. I have too heavy a cross to bear”. The Lord replied, “My dear son if you can’t bear its weight, just place your cross down. Then ask him to open other door and pick out any cross you wish.” He was filled with great relief and said, “Thank you, Lord”. He did the same as God told him. After entering the room, he saw many crosses. Some of these were so large the even tops were not visible. Then he saw a tiny cross leaning against a fa wall. Then he whispered God, “I’d like that one”. The Lord replied, “My son that is the cross you just brought in.” So that’s a story. I don’t know how much reality is in it. But the lesson we can take out of this is just be in His will (One Universal Creator God). He knows what is best for us. He knows what we are going through. Instead of complaining just thank Him for his blessings. We should also think over What Does God Want From Us.
Like a doctor gives who gives us bitter medicines so that we can get well. In the same way God put us to the situations so that we can get better. It’s all our Karma that causes troubles. Just thank God for everything. We see every time we need help of God we pray. When we go to temple, Gurudwara or Church, we offer some words for being wellness. When we are running late or get stuck in traffic, we start repeating his name over and over again. When we cut our finger, we shout his name immediately. When our baby opens his or her eyes, we thank God with tears of happiness. When our baby get hurts due to some injury, we grasp our heart and beg Him (GOD) to protect him/her. When we lose our beloved ones, we cry and cry and ask Him why this happened with us. When we see something wrong around us, we urge Him to get things settled once again. We beg Him to help us whenever life draws us in difficulty. Like the man in the story, the moment we realize we are helpless and cannot step further to help our self. We fall to our knees and pray for his mercy and grace to reduce our cross. The thing keep in your mind is the Cross is nothing but all created by our self. It’s all just due to our previous actions or Karmas. We can’t trace everything we have done to create this cross. We have accumulated these karmas over so many lifetimes. Whenever our karmas creates problem in the present and our cross seem to be breaking our back it becomes hard to escape a prayer from our lips.
What really a prayer is?
What is the real prayer? It’s not merely uttering some words. Prayer is something greater than asking help with words. When we pray we unite ourselves with the Lord. Though the Almighty knows everything yet we remind him what we are going through. Because by making pray we satisfy our self that now God has come to know what I am going through. Our level is not that much we can see what actually is behind the scene.
Mystics have explained that a prayer is the essence of the spirituality. When we pray we can feel the presence of the God. We find him Omnipresent and Omniscient by communicating through prayer. When we pray we get courage to cope up all the problems. Our fear reduces and inner purity spreads inside. The mind and body get relaxed after prayer. Our faith strengthened more than ever. We should learn the purpose of the prayer. We simply need to surrender our self to the God’s will. It means that we have to submit our faith to the lord and leave the result of our action in the hands of the Lord. As He knows everything and we know he can’t commit any mistake we simply need to completely surrender to Him. Whatever the situation we are in right now that is simply because of our karmas.
Where Should We Pray?
True Prayer can be practiced within our self. We know this body is called the living temple of the lord. We don’t need to go anywhere else. We simply need to search for Him between the two eyes. He is closer than anything else. The form of prayer is not reciting particular verses or phrases but awakening of the Lord within this body through meditation.
One of the great mystics said about Prayer For Healing(Teachings Of The Saints)
“When you pray, enter the closet of the body and shut the outer doors. Do not let the attention wander outside. Open your heart to the Lord within. He will listen to the prayer made in this secret spot.”
When our attention is on the Master, our all problems and difficulties fade into the background. We need not do anything different but just focused inside. This leads us to the Lord and makes us fit for His mercy and grace. Just keep reminding yourself, we need to be patient when we put in the effort to listen to the Shbad, the divine melody within. It’s all will be only possible when our practice is perfected, we will feel the peace and bliss within not outside. Just the thought of this stirs the desire within us to being one with the Lord. This is something that make us rise above the costumes of body and mind, and reach the point where we feel the presence of the Lord from whom all blessings originate.
The famous words of Saint Kabir (as quoted in Kabir the Weaver of Gods Namme) come to mind whenever we speak of prayer and difficulties: “All do simran during the gloom of adversity; in days of sunshine few repeat the Name. If man does simran in happiness, he will not suffer adversity’s pain.” As we meditate daily it is the continue to pray in meditation daily, we may one day find ourselves saying the same words that Ole Hallesby said to the Lord (as he wrote in his book Prayer):
There come times, not so seldom with me at least, when I have nothing more to tell God If I were to continue to pray in words, I would have to repeat what I have already said. At such times it is wonderful to say to God. “May I be in Thy presence, Lord? I have nothing more to say to Thee, bul I do love to be in Thy presence.
It’s quite hard to escape praying when we are in trouble. We seek Prayer for Healings. But need to consider He knows every bit of us. He knows what we are going through. Do we still think we need to tell him what we are going through? We just need to be in his will. How can we accomplish this? Just keep Him in your thoughts every time by doing Simran. There comes a time when we will be able to get know the truth of all this pain and pleasure. Just appreciate and cherish with his Naam.
Next time you are in trouble or overwhelmed with joy, just don’t forget to thank Him. It doesn’t need to remind Him what you going through. Just tell Him to give you strength to go through every phase. He doesn’t want anything but appreciation. Then we will come to know Who We Are.
