God Answers Prayers. The Divine wants what is best for us. Prayers are conversations with God. When we talk to God and ask for what we want, knowing and believing that God is benevolent, loving and guides us to our highest and best potential, we are Divinely creating in partnership with the Source.

Prayers are the act of talking to God. There are many ways to communicate with Spirit. Standard prayers that you learned as a child, directly speaking to the Universe or creating your own prayers to the Divine are some of the choices you have. Whether you pray on a regular basis, once in awhile or have never prayed before, God answers prayers.

Let Go and Let God

God answers prayers whether we believe or not. It helps to have faith and trust in our Higher Power which allows us to let go and let God. We are co-creating with Source. Having your prayers answered is a powerful experience that teaches us to have faith in the Divine. When you pray you honor your spirit.

Remembering those times when God answers prayers gives us a reference point to refer back to when we need to be reminded of the truth. Those memories encourage us to let go and let God take charge of our life and circumstances. Focused intention when we pray lends energy to the process of Divine creating.

Sharing our stories of when God answers prayers helps others to remember to trust, let go and let God. We are not alone. The source is always guiding us to what is best for us. Our prayers direct the Divine to the people, situations and areas of our lives that need Spirit's help which allows us to let go further on our spiritual path.

Praying to get to Seattle Safely

For the past few weeks I have been praying to get to Seattle safely from upstate New York in spite of the stormy winter weather we have been having on the east coast. My faith and trust in God is strong. Very early in the morning on February 1 I realized that Newark Airport was closed due to a huge winter storm. My flight from Albany airport to Newark was fine, though, I just would not be able to get my connecting flight to Seattle from Newark airport. It was difficult to get through to the airlines by phone since thousands of flights were canceled and there was an unusually high volume of calls. I started to doubt that I would get to Seattle that day. Immediately I reminded myself that God answers prayers and that I have been praying for weeks now that I get to Seattle regardless of the weather. Trust and faith was key here as I continued to let go of the doubts.

It took a conscious effort for me to stay positive about my desired outcome knowing and believing that God answers prayers. Finally I got through to the airlines and other flights for me were arranged rather quickly. At 3:40 a.m. I realized that the next flight that I needed to catch was at 6:10 a.m. and the ride to Albany airport takes an hour from my home. It was early morning as new snow had begun to fall. I had to shower, finish packing up the car and be on the road by 4 a.m. if I were to catch the plane. At 4:09 a.m. I was on my way to the airport praying all the way.

God answers prayers, I thought as I boarded the small plane at 5:45 a.m. for my first of three planes to Seattle. As I saw the many images at the airports of the huge storm and it's damaging effects on numerous states, all I could say was "thank you for answering my prayers." Finally I arrived at Seattle and into my loving husband's arms after traveling over 12 hours safely, in spite of all the many obstacles before me. Praying to get to Seattle safely paid off.

After a good night's sleep, healthful food, with love and support from my husband and of course God, I am able to share this story today about how God answers prayers.

Yes I have faith and trust in the Divine and as a human being I also have fear and doubts. The challenge is to let go of the limiting beliefs, thoughts, fears and to keep remembering the truth. God answers prayers. Spirit wants what is best for us. Our prayers are part of the process of connecting to the Universe, asking for Divine intervention on our behalf. We are all truly blessed, loved and guided by our Higher Power. And so it is.
