Q: What is the most effective way to pray for others who are sick or suffering?
A: The most effective way to pray for another person is to picture yourself in their shoes, in their position. Really try to connect with them (considering you’re already connected, all you have to do is open up your heart and intuition to them, and let them in) and feel what they would want in the specific situation.
Open your heart and thank God for giving them what you feel they need in this situation. Keep your focus on this prayer for as long as you want.
This is the most effective way to pray for another person or animal. It is best both for you and the other person/animal. It breaks down ego barriers between two people, allowing love to flow from one to the other and back, and helps to increase love in the world. This is the true purpose of prayer.
