How to pray? “If there is pain for the problem you are praying for, even with a sigh you pray from the heart”
“Father, how do we pray for a problem?” Father Paisie was often asked.
“The key to success is to hurt the one who prays. If it doesn’t hurt, he can sit for hours with the methane in his hand and his prayer will be fruitless. If there is pain for the problem you are praying for, even with a sigh you pray from the heart.
Many, when others ask them to pray for them, do not have time to pray at that time and therefore pray only with a sigh for their problem. I am not saying not to pray, but if there is no time, even a sigh for the other’s pain is a prayer from the heart, that is, it is equivalent to hours of prayer.
For example, you read a letter, you see a problem, you sigh, and then you pray. This is a great thing! Before you pick up the phone, before you dial the number, God hears you! And see how the other one is notified! See how the demons understand when they pray for them and shout wherever they are! True prayer begins with pain, not pleasure, “nirvana.” But what kind of pain is it?
Man is tormented in the right way. It hurts, he moans, he suffers when he prays for anything. Do you know what it means to suffer? Yes, he suffers, because he participates in the general pain of the world or of a particular man. God rewards this participation, this pain, with divine joy. Of course, man does not ask for divine joy, but it comes as a consequence, because he participates in the pain of the other ”, Saint Paisie Aghioritul used to say.
