Our prayers are most effective when they are in the service of something greater than us. I can pray all I want for a new phone or for a new car or whatever. But it’s totally self-serving and there is no power in that. Power is when we pray selflessly, when we pray for something greater than us. When we get to that place when it’s not my will, it’s not they will, it’s our will. When you come from your highest self you are one with the divine, and what blesses the world blesses you, and what blesses you, blesses the world. This is what we tap into for prayer on the path of our destiny.
