If you believe in a higher power, then prayer is very important to you. In my interview with author Sam Beasley we speak about his new co authored book with BJ Gallagher entitled “Your Life Is Your Prayer–Wake Up To The Spiritual Power in Everything You Do“. When we talk about prayer, the image that comes to mind for most people is that of one’s head bowed, eyes closed, hands clasped, and perhaps kneeling –perhaps not. This is the classic prayer for posture. We turn our attention inward and upward.
In my interview with the author Sam Beasley we speak about the fact the prayer does not have to be when you are in this traditional position, one is in prayer most of the day; in what we asking for and the thoughts they are thinking. “Your Life is Your Prayer” is a book filled with prayers, things to contemplate, and the conversations that we have which are frequently prayers to the Divine.
Sam, like many of us, wasn’t always a believer. He spent the first 37 years of his life absolutely certain that he was alone in this life; it didn’t occur to him to pray.
“Someone suggested that I try it and I explained that ‘I wasn’t a believer'”, he replied.
“That’s OK just pretend you are.”
“I didn’t know how to do that but I started spending more time with a few people who embrace faith, the first thing I noticed was that they were happier than me. About two years later I heard an inner voice speaking to what San Juan de la Cruz called “Something I Don’t Know” and I realize that for the first time I had a sense of something beyond name.
If you were looking for something to help you go beyond yourself and find a higher source, then you have the opportunity to read a great book that can shift your perspective about the power of prayer.
