There is a kind of power that comes from prayer. A liberating power that happens when your ego overcomes its normal selfish tendencies. Prayer is a practice of equalizing self with others by recognizing that everyone wants to be happy and free from suffering. Therefore your own suffering isn’t more important than others. This may seem very simple but actually it’s quite difficult. This is very important on the spiritual path because without a loving heart that wants to benefit others, the ego can become greedy and spiritual work can become just another material gain. Just relaying a message from my teachers, I still have homework to do. . .
