What makes our prayers effective, and answered by God? People have used incantations by spiritual figures in the past. In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki) is the following:
Do not think that incantations or magical arts are great.
The mind’s sincerity, this is the truth. 5-44
True sincerity is the mind without greed, arrogance, and self love. This is the mind that is a conduit to God. Whether God acts on this sincere prayer involves many factors which I will write about in the future; but the initial step would be God receiving our prayer.
True. But prayers would be empty despite the sincerity when we keep it ourselves and not act on it. Worshiping God is both a mental, spiritual and physical act, making the abstract concrete by good deeds, the same way God made His Son that of a mortal Man.
I believe that God knows what we wanting, without even asking in our prayers. True sincerity is a difficult path, because we are always tested in life by obstacles and challenges. You are right in that we need to act on our sincerity.
Thank you for your insight!
