Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad, for the tree is known by its fruit. 34 You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil. 36 I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, 37 for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Mathew 12:33-37
The power of language is indeed a great blessing for all of us .It enables us to share our thoughts ,sufferings and happiness.
We are overwhelmed by the utterance of a blessing by an elderly person because we know what it means .
We also ignore any such blessings from an evil person because we know that a person who has control over his /her tongue can only bless us.
We all know the art of opening a heart with sweet and kind words and similarly we also know that what kind of words will shut the mouth of a person.
We know that a pipe which carries the dirty water to the gutter will never ever be able to give us clean drinking water.
So for a fruitful prayer we must ensure the fact that we must not use our tongue to curse, use slangs or use words which humiliate others .
I am sure that the number of people who are praying today has increased but there are very few people on this earth who can assure us of a fruitful prayer to resolve our problems.
The relationship with the Almighty is more important today to have our prayers answered when we need it.
Reciting short prayers whenever possible is more important than reciting lengthy prayers once in a week. Reciting short prayers regularly creates a strong bond with our loving God.
Pray even when everything is fine ,thank him for his generosity and praise him for a while where ever you are.
Convert the objects and thoughts of sins put forward by Satan to tempt you into causes of short prayers.
For example a beautiful person should remind us to thank the Lord for his lovely creation.
Vulgar pictures or objects should remind us of the fact that many have died early for being fond of it.That a little pleasure or joy will spoil all our past prayers and mortification and we have to start again from the beginning.
Addiction of drugs also shorten our lives and deprive us of our true blessings of a happy and prosperous life.We invite diseases and destroy our health.
Some sins are deadly hindrance to our fruitful prayer life.
So let us bless our tongues so that we will be justified and not condemned.
If you are praying daily and trying hard to live a pious life then keep two glasses of pure water on your alter.Everyday after your prayers take the water of glass A in your clean hands and say a prayer of blessings for a few days. Next take the water of glass B and curse the water for a few days and then check what is happening to the two glasses of water and let me know if possible.
Thank you very much .Take care.
