Before God

Irrespective of the religion, irrespective of presence or absence of an idol, when one is before God, I see the same expression on the faces of all of us. The eyes are in a trance, the body has submitted to the God we are praying to.

Prayers in all religions are a combination of more than one bodily senses. There are words to the prayers; there are these visuals that a religious place brings before us.

Prayers try to stimulate these senses and help us focus. Focus on our God. Focus on what we want from him. Focus on the changes we want in our lives.

Across all religions and beliefs, the prayers to God outside only help us stimulate the God within us.
