Every intercessory prayer you offer adds that much more love and healing energy to the consciousness of the individual you are praying for. In Healing Words, Reinventing Medicine, and other books, Dr. Larry Dossey, who has spent years researching the relationship between prayer and healing, cites numerous scientific studies that strongly support the power of prayer.
Indeed, an intercessory prayer, when uttered with loving intention and unbroken attention, may mean the difference between life and death. Yet there are so many factors in play—the recipient’s karmic debts, sacred contracts, and will to live, to name a few—that your prayer may not appear to affect the ultimate outcome.
So why bother to pray? No matter what the outcome, the loving energy you transmit may ease the recipient’s pain, comfort their soul, and bolster their strength and resolve. In the end, every prayer you offer up serves the higher good of the person you are praying for.
The time may be delayed, the manner may be unexpected, but sooner or later, in some form or other, the answer is sure to come. Not a tear of sacred sorrow, not a breath of holy desire, poured out in prayer to God, will ever be lost; but, in God’s own best time and way, it will be wafted back again in clouds of mercy, and fall in showers of blessings on you and those for whom you pray.
