In this endless universe, man is like a small atom. But he passes something very wonderful. The quality of intelligence in man enables him to understand the marker of 6the universe. The question is: who is creator of this universe? No doubt, it is God. The wonderful handiwork of god is seen in the colors of the butterfly, in the colors of the rainbow, in the high mountains and in their snow –covered peaks, in the flowing rivers, in the trees swaying in the breeze, in the blossoming flowers. The sun, the moon, the stars, the earth, the ocean all reflects God’s grace and glory.
We thank our friends, parents, teachers, etc. for their favors for us. But how many times do we thank God, our Marker, for all His blessings?
We should remain oblige and thank God for this wonderful world that He has given to us. We must thank God for many precious gifts that he has given to us as well. How should we express our gratitude towards Him? The only way to express our gratitude towards God is to pray to Him. We must pray to him every day. We must pray to Him: ``O God, you have neither a beginning nor an end. You are omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. O God, give us the power to love every creature. Grant us the strength to respect our elders. Give us a heart that helps the distressed and helpless human being. O God, make me active and fit sure; pious, punctual, polite and pure. O God, forgive me hen I am unkind and help me to forgive those who are unkind to me’’.
Prayer is exhaling the spirit of man and inhaling the spirit of God. Gandhi used to say, `prayer is my strength with which to work and face life.’’
Prayer is not a lazy substitute for work. It is not a short cut to skill or knowledge. We should always remember-`` God helps those who help themselves’’. A prayer makes a man meek and humble. We should pray to God with great devotion and reverence. Remember, a prayer is only a man’s privilege in the universe. Animals can’t do that. A prayer makes a person not only aware of these virtues but also of his defects and failures.
In Gita, it has been said that we must dedicate our actions to `God’. Never feel proud even for a while of having achieved something. This gives rise to your ego and remembers. This ego will definitely make you forget got which would be a sin. You should always keep in your mind as food is necessary to keep the body healthy and strong. In the same way prayer is needed to keep our soul good and pure.
