Why do our prayers sometimes fail?
In our religion we have two stages of the mind, the purified and the spirited. Both stages are aware of God’s teachings, and continue to develop spiritually. One stage is able to understand the initial and final teaching that all mankind was created to live a joyous life. The purified mind knows this concept, but is yet to sincerely believe in this truth. For example, there are people who are dedicated to the church, and follow the teachings for selfish purposes, thinking that God will favor them or their families. These people may be considered pillars to the church, but fall one step short in finding salvation.
The spirited mind is convinced that all mankind was created to live a joyous life, and their actions always reflect this view. They believe by saving others, God will bless them. This stage is difficult to reach due to our selfish minds and the always-lingering doubt of the existence of God. From both stages, prayers are initiated, but from only the spirited stage are our prayers answered.
Next time when you pray, pray for the world. God knows your situation and will help you even if you don’t say a word.
