How to pray & receive anything you want?

We all pray to God. Some of our prayers are answer some are not.
I was wondering why it is so. How God decides which prayer to answer now or which to delay or which prayer not to answer at all? In our experience this is exactly what happens.
I asked God & He answered beautifully.
God explained to me that I do not have any thumb rule with which to decide. The way you pray that decides. I could not understand. I asked for clarification, He explained, when you pray & ask for some thing that means you do not have what you are asking. In every prayer your thought behind the thought or sponsoring thought is that I lack. God told me that when you make a statement of lack it is converted in to lack. Your thoughts are creative. Your thoughts create every thing. You do not know this. What ever you express whether silently or by speech it happens.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/gurmat-vichaar/24936-how-pray-recieve-what-you-want.html
As for as I am concerned I have kept every thing, all your needs & desires in the universe before you were born. ‘I do not have to create something new for you which you are asking. It is already there. As in Bible’ you will be answered before you ask. As in siri guru granth sahib ‘ jo mWgy Twkur Apny qy soeI soeI dyvY’] iek hor quk Xwd rKx vwlI hY ‘ jo ikC pwieAw so eykw vwr’ ]
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=24936
It is clear that God does have to create something new for you which you are asking. It is already there in the universe. Universe obeys your thoughts. If you express thoughts of lack in your prayers you will not get any thing because universe has answered what was your sponsoring thought.
With this knowledge & insight I asked then How to prey? He again gave a beautiful answer. He said make a prayer of thankfulness & not a prayer of supplication or begging. What ever you need say ‘THANK YOU GOD FOR GIVING ME THIS.
I asked God How I can say that as what I am asking I have not received. I do not have that stuff with me. Then God said ‘YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME?
If you have a belief of just a mustered seed you can move mountains,
This is true, I read a book BELIEVING IS SEEING & God confirmed that what is written there is 100% true. Even the scientists have started believing in this Truth.
So, your every prayer will be answered if made with thankfulness & gratitude e.g., THANKS YOU GOD FOR GIVING ME THIS, THANK YOU GOD FOR DOING THIS FOR ME.
This is a magical prayer. Every prayer made with Faith that God has already kept for you what you are asking will make a huge difference in your life.
Before you were born God kept your feed in the form of milk in your mother’s breast. Your father did not have to go to market to bring feed for you. Same way God has kept everything for you that you may need from your birth to death. Don’t worry. Be happy. Enjoy your life.
GOD BLESSES YOU.

With love
Mahanbir Singh

It is true, and if you are praying for that which must happen, it will happen.

Re: How to pray & recieve what you want?

I'm one of the most unsuccessful people in the world, I have failed in almost everything in life including education, athletic performance and socializing Above all I fail life. I try hard in school and end up with C's
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=24936
However I prayed, I guess I can't say I prayed hard but I used always do prayers from the Gutka everyday. I'm still young however I'm running out of time to do anything with my life. I try in school but my brain isn't the sharpest. I love god and I know he loves me and I want to take another shot at the religion of sikhism and if god disagrees to help then I have to stop with everything with religion because god disagrees to help me then I have nothing to live for.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=24936
So is there anyone out there that's know what I can do before I end up taking the wrong path life because it's my only one?

Re: How to pray & recieve what you want?

vick966 ji

I don't know how old you are. And I don't know if you want to feel better about yourself. Sometimes people who say they are failures have a lot of emotional energy tied up in staying inside that "failing" identity. it is frustrating for everyone when that is true - for both the "failure" and the person trying to help.

So let me assume that you really do want to overcome this feeling. Have you noticed that you are judging yourself according to signs and input from outside of you. In life we are judged - all the time. We are compared to one another all the time. We are put into boxes: good, better, best, poor, very poor, total failure. Society needs to do this to maintain order -- this is a subject for another discussion. But as individuals we don't have to buy into it. Why are you saying that you are a failure based on C's, your social life, and your athletic performance? Because those are not the only categories where you can find success.

I have a doctoral degree, many years of education, a loyal circle of friends, enough money, and success in my profession. And you know what? Right now I am reeling from feelings of failure. Feelings of failure are always based on what the opinion of others is/might be. And actually that is ridiculous. Because there you or I are never going to be "the perfect solution" for someone else. The needs of others can never be satisfied because there are just so many of those "others" and they all want something different. How are you going to live up to that? Try doing that for 20 years, and then come back and tell us how depressed and emotionally exhausted life has made you.

Try this out instead. See if it makes you feel better. Make a list of all the things you did today that made you feel even a little bit happy inside. If there are only one or two things, those are your achievements today, and they are completely yours. No one else gets the credit. You did it yourself, and it made you feel positive. Become more aware of how successful you really are. A life is made up of years, years are made up of months, weeks and days. Days are made up of hours and minutes. And each minute can be spent fulfilling your destiny or paying attention to your measurements -- measurements using someone else's yardstick. It is a recipe for failure. So give that up, relax, and enjoy life -- enjoy what you bring to the table.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=24936

And yes -- always speak to the universe, let God know how grateful you are for being who you are. If you say you are a failure, what are you saying to the Creator? Be grateful for who you are, and after a while, you may even believe it.

Re: How to pray & recieve what you want?

Thank you for anwsering me I don't if I"m going to be able to follow your way but I It looks like you lived a wonderful life I don't understand why you feel like a failure espically after having loyal friends which I always wanted. I'm going to become 17 and this is my last year to change everything in grade 12, I used pray hard but I need the grades this year, for a final shot and I understand I should enjoy life but without grades I can't have a future. In the end of the day no matter how many people I ask, example. how should I pray, how should improve my self. Everyone has different answers and I without satifying my self by successes I can't live happy.

Its wishful thinking that you will get what you pray for but is this the truth?
Quote:
Let’s start with a quick experiment. You can grab three coins and actually do the experiment, or just do a thought experiment.

Drop one coin and watch it fall. Do this again. Hold out the third coin.
If you were to the release third coin, what do you think would happen? If you could get ten good Christians to pray that this next coin wouldn’t fall, would it still fall? How about one thousand faithful Muslims? How about one billion people of any faith? I think that it would still fall. Drop the third coin. Our understanding of the world around us, and our abilities to predict what will happen are based on naturalism — the basis of science.

This is a beautiful and deep insight you share above, Mahanbir Sing Ji. Thank you!

When we reach a point of despair, disappointment or even a feeling of never ending depression then we have reached an important point in our spiritual growth. When money, friends, family and even our health are positive but there is still inside us something amiss, this is a sign that we are ready to grow as a person.

Make no mistake my friends that the external world has its limits for everyone and that life itself has much more to offer. Look inwards, step behind the mind, concepts, worries and even our hopes, there, in us all, is a place of stability and deep love. Prayer and meditation is its door. Like a tree in the winds of a storm, our roots are deep and the meaning of our lives has unseen significance. No matter how battered our emotions or minds become have faith, meditate or pray.

Look to memory, it will show us that everything passes and the only thing for certain is change. Night will become day, sadness will turn to laughter, all is the play of maya.

Do your best at school or work so you can look back with your mind at ease, but mark my words, it is the patience and kindness you shows to others that will make your life successful, rich and a gift worth living.
