What Prayer Looks Like

What Prayer Looks Like

I visualize prayer like an enormous triangle. The top peak is God, and the extreme bottom left point is the one speaking the prayer. The third, and remaining, point is the man or woman for whom a prayer is being said. Then I visualize the bottom two lines going out from the one offering prayer. One goes up to God. The other extends, on the horizontal level, to the one in need. I look up to God, and over to the one for whom the prayer is being spoken.
Love/Energy Flowing From God
I see two lines flowing from down God. One goes to the one being prayed for, the other goes back down to me, the pray-er. The line that goes to the one in need is God’s energy and love streaming to that person. The line that goes from God to me is God’s love and energy flowing back to the one in prayer. From there, from me, God’s love and energy goes out toward the target person, for whom supplication and intercession is being offered.
Flowing Through Me Too
The astounding part of this picture is God’s healing love flowing through me, the one doing the praying. The help doesn’t exclusively come down directly from God to the hurting person. It does, but it also comes straight through me, the one calling on God, for the needed help.
Visualize the Person
When praying for someone, if I am not in their presence, it is always helpful to conjure up a mental picture of him, or her. I see them in my mind. I think of them in such a way that I can visualize them rather clearly. This may then be multiplying the loving energy of God, that is flowing toward them. It streams directly from God, and also through me.
