The secret of Prayers

"The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays." Reminding ourselves often of our spiritual natures truly changes the quality of our lives. It helps us relax, slow down, lighten up, and generally find more space and joy in life. When we get down on ourselves or life, we can pull back and ask, "How might my soul regard this situation? What am I being invited to experience?" This shift in perspective helps us let go off the resistance that always comes with negativity. As energy once again begins to flow, our outlook brightens. "Spirituality is the sacred centre out of which all life comes. The spiritual journey is the soul's life mixing with ordinary life." If you want to live a peaceful and contented life, then remember the following: "It is not my business to think about myself. My business is to think about God. It is for God to think about me." Allah swt in Hadis-e-Qudsi: "You look after my affairs and I will take care of all your affairs"
