Answered Prayers

Why does it seem that some prayers don't get answered? We may not fully understand this process until we get to heaven and have the ability to grasp all the dimensions. In the meantime, we do know that these factors are important in answered prayer:

1. Deservingness. If you feel like you deserve to receive good, you're more likely to ask for goodness and graciously receive it. If you feel undeserving of goodness, you won't ask, you will push it away, or you will sabotage goodness in your life.
2. Free will choices. If you're praying for a situation that involves someone else, their free will choice influences the outcome. And sometimes the people that we are praying for choose a different outcome then we would pray for them.
3. Intentions and motivations. Why are you asking for this? If it's for an ego-based reason (to impress others, temporary pleasure, etc.), God will offer you a better solution that prospers the soul instead of the ego. James 4:3 puts it perfectly: And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.
4. Divinely guided. If you're not sure what to ask for, pray for guidance. The fastest way to have your prayers answered is to ask God for guidance about what your needs are.

Beloved One, you deserve to get your needs met, we all do! And when your needs are met, you're better able to help others. God will give you everything that you need, and if you are not sure what you need – pray - such as this prayer:
Dear God, I'm not sure what I need, but I'm pretty sure that you know what I need, so here I am asking for your help to discern what I need, and then help me to feel deserving of this request. Please help me to feel deserving of your graciousness, and accept goodness into my life, so that I can serve you better.

And here's a supportive scripture: Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

Be True to You!
There are SO many pressures in this world to conform to other people's ways, and you may feel confused or conflicted. And as an empath, you sense other people's feelings, and you may be tempted to conform to others to make them happy.

Yet, when we give away ourselves to please others, we please nobody. For example, if you've decided to live sober, then you can't imbibe with your drinking friends just to please them. The same applies to your spiritual beliefs, and your outlook on life.
So, being true to yourself may necessitate making changes to your relationships, such as having heart-to-heart discussions, working through differences, or making healthier new friendships.
You'll probably agree that you respect and trust people who are authentic, and whose actions match their energy. People who speak their truth, and who are loving without being people-pleasing. And as you are authentic, so too do you attract authentic friends.
It takes strength to be authentic in the face of pressures, and prayers such as this one can help: Dear God, Please give me the strength and support to follow your guidance. I'm confused about what I believe and what I should do, and I want to be influenced by your will. Please send like-minded people to me, Dear Lord. At times I feel lonely, and I need to be surrounded by people who have my best interests at heart. Thank you for giving me the courage to be authentic.
And here's a supportive scripture: Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 NLT

You can manifest virtually anything that you want . . . but is that really the path to happiness? After all, there's stress and responsibility that accompanies each new acquisition. What if - instead of that stress - your needs were all met, and you had plenty of time to focus on your priorities? Isn't that the most peaceful manifestation?

Simplifying your life doesn't mean suffering without your needs. It means enjoying your life by having plenty of time and energy and other resources. There's a beautiful freedom and lightness.
What burdens would you like to release, Dear One? What would you like to let go of in order to have a simpler life? I am joining you in prayer for your peaceful life of freedom, unburdened by social pressures to acquire more. I am praying that you use your manifestation spiritual gifts in a direction that truly fulfills you and brings blessings to the world. Now, let's breathe a sigh of relief together as we let go of the burden of chasing after unneeded wants. And PS: if you're unsure if your desire is a want or a need, prayer such as this one can help you to discern:

Dear God, it's me needing your help in unburdening my thoughts, my heart, my life. There's just too much going on, and I am feeling burdened and confused. Here Lord, would you please take these burdens from me? Show me what is necessary and unnecessary please, help me to discern between needs and wants, and please help me to joyfully simplify my life.

And here's a supportive scripture: I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:11-13

Am I on the right path? This is one of the top questions that I receive on my weekly Hay House Radio show.
So how DO you know if you're on the right path or not? The answer is similar to knowing whether you love someone or not: you just know. And if someone is questioning whether they're on the right path, it's because they know that something is off and needs correcting.
We don't drive our life in a straight line - we swerve a bit here and there, and have detours. And yet we need to feel that we are going in the right general direction, which we can assess by taking a regular inventory of what needs changing or repairing.
One of the more powerful ways to do this is by taking a few moments each morning to connect with God, and surrendering the day to him for guidance, protection, and care. God knows the best path for us, in the same way that an air traffic controller knows the best path for pilots.
The ego won't like this, because the ego wants fear and willfulness to be in charge of the day. You can experiment, and see how your day goes on those days that you pray for God's help, comparing how the day goes when you allow the ego to be in charge. This experiment can be the greatest motivator to start your day - and ultimately your life path - in the healthiest direction.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, please shepherd me and guide my path. Here are the parts of my life that I am unsure of (describe). If I am supposed to be doing something differently, please help me to do so. I want to be on the right path according to your will, as I know that is the path of truth fulfillment and blessings.
And here's a supportive scripture: Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you. Psalm 143:8 NLT

Peace be with you!
Here's a life lesson I'd love to pass along to you: Most people believe that they will be at peace AFTER they attain their goal, such as health, love, career, finances, etc.
The truth is that this perspective is backwards. The way it really works is that FIRST you are at peace, and then all of those intentions are possible. Peace means having faith. In fact, it's a valuable spiritual lesson to learn how to be at peace, no matter what's going on around you.

Some people say that they can't be at peace until the world is at peace. And yet, if that person is anxious about the world not being at peace, they are contributing anxiety to the world. How much more elevating is it to contribute peace to the world, by being at peace yourself.
And how is it possible to be at peace in the midst of drama, suffering, or chaos? Through prayer. Praying from the depths of your heart for help, can miraculously lift you up and restore your inner peace so that you have the energy and strength to carry-on. Prayer gives you access to creative solutions, and gives you guidance as to what positive action steps to take.

My prayer for you is that you have continuous silent conversations and prayers with God. May the peace of God be with you always!

Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, please continue to protect me and my loved ones, and this world, and support us all in our intentions to bring peace to the world. Here are my concerns (please describe the situation), and I thank you for listening, and lovingly guiding my thoughts and actions about this situation.

And here's a supportive scripture: Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. 1 Peter 5:7 NLT

Be gentle with yourself. You are God's beloved child, and you've been through so much in your life. You've endured hardships and weathered life's storms. You're also very sensitive, and in need of a quiet and restful retreat.
Pull back from the noise and from the clock for awhile, Dear One. Give all worries and upsets to God. Take a breather, and let yourself rest. Disconnect from harsh media, and avoid competitive environments. Eat gentle food that is healthful and nourishing. You deserve a gentle rest, which will give you the energy to help others.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, please take my weariness and help me to revive my energy and enthusiasm for the life that you gave me. If there are any changes that I need to make, please guide and support me in a better direction.

And here's a supportive scripture: Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat. Mark 6:31 NLT

It's easy to feel loving when you're in a gentle setting, but how about in a harsh environment, or when you're with difficult people?
First, know that we are all going through these challenges together. Relationships involve the peril of conflict. So, it's not a matter of finding that magical conflict-free relationship. It's a matter of dealing with conflict in healthy ways, such as honest discussions, prayer, counseling, assertiveness . . . and if that doesn't work: walking away.
The ego wants to analyze other people's egos, picking apart the reasons for the conflict. This would be fine if this method actually worked to bring about peace, but it doesn't. Analyzing someone else's ego, only increases isolation, blame, judgment, and other bases of fear.
What does work is to have compassion for everyone involved with the conflict. See everyone as little children, lashing out because they're afraid.
If there's an abusive situation, stay away from abusive people, direct any anger into taking positive action steps for healthy change, and pray fervently for divine intervention. What matters most spiritually is how you deal with the situation, always with love.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, I need your help with this person please (describe situation). Please show me how to deal with this situation in healthy and loving ways. Please give me the strength to be loving, authentic, and compassionate toward everyone involved, including toward myself.
And here's a supportive scripture: Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

God is pouring love upon you, your loved ones, and the world. If it sometimes seems like this isn't so, free will is the reason why. We have the free will choice to accept or not accept God's blessings.
Fortunately, you can choose to be a conduit of God's love! Your open and joyful heart is like opening a window to bring in fresh air. All of that love is poured through you, and flows to everyone you meet.
Choose to bring joy wherever you go today. Be that person who smiles, and whose eyes sparkle with happiness. Uplift those who are sad, and be the reminder that we can choose happiness no matter what's going on around us. Because the fastest path to true happiness is to love.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, thank you for loving me, even when I feel like I've made mistakes. Thank you for loving me, even when I don't love myself. Thank you for loving me, even when I lose my way. Thank you for loving me, even when I feel unlovable. Thank you for loving me, even when I forget to love you.
And here's a supportive scripture: We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. 1 John 4:16
