Answers to Prayers

It has been said time and again that God answers your prayers through people.

If you ask for something, He will usually send someone with an opportunity for you to get the answer. Whether it is for money or simply a way to help others and enable you to grow spiritually, the answer comes through people.

But what if it was not a material-oriented prayer? What if you were simply asking for the answer to some question, or something puzzling to you?

Surprisingly, the answer is all around you. I have often stepped outside to gaze at the trees in my backyard – which I have seen for years – and suddenly notice something I never noticed before. Or the pattern of the branches in winter, or the breeze or sunlight across the leaves in the summer make a connection in my mind that I had not thought of before.

The answers are all around us, all the time. Which answers? ALL of them.

All one needs to do is frame the question and then look.

The trick is to clear your mind while looking. Answers cannot push into an overactive mind. Just clearing your thoughts and looking at nature – trees, grass, clouds, a dog running along a sidewalk, the sun glinting off the windshield of a passing auto – the answers can be found anywhere, everywhere.

Of course, this may not work for everyone. I am certain that if it does not work for you there is another method the Almighty connects with you.

As different as all we creations are, He probably has devised a variety of methods to connect with each and every one of us.

It is in this very simple way that we all have conversations with the Almighty.
