Powerful Prayers

I am currently reading a book written by Larry King about Powerful Prayers. Larry King has admitted that he is doubtful about praying. His daughter who is religious convinced him to write about how powerful people pray and their views on prayer. I am still on the first few pages of the book and already I have read so many things that I really like. I would like to share one of the thoughts of Rabbi Katsof (Larry King's friend and co-writer) about prayer. 

Rabbi Katsof said that there are four things one must keep in mind about prayer:

1. Prayer is easy and difficult. It is easy because it is just like any conversation. It is difficult because prayer requires attention to our words and thoughts. A sincere and focused prayer can transform one's life.

2. Prayer could change you. We become a different person after making a request. Prayer can be an instrument for change if we only allow it. We must remember though that God knows better what is good for us. What we think is best for us may not be what God thinks is best for us.

3. Prayer connects you to your true self. Prayer is not for God but for us. Every time we pray, our soul is being fed. Prayer helps us learn what is really inside our hearts.

4. Prayer goes to the source. Prayer is our means of communication to the creator of this Universe.

Losing Weight

When my husband went to Manila last week for training, I took the opportunity to try and lose weight. It is hard losing the pounds whenever he's around for he loves to cook and  I just could not resist savoring his recipes. I tried USANA's Nutrimeal meal replacement for helping me lessen my cravings. It actually worked on me. I have stopped drinking the Nutrimeal two days ago and it's amazing that until now,  I do not look for my usual cravings like chocolates and junk foods. The best of it all is that I could not eat a lot. It seems that my stomach had been trained to eat just enough. I hope this will continue because once my husband starts cooking again, I don't know if I can resist:)

missing someone

I miss my husband. He is currently in Manila undergoing training on Marketing. I feel really blessed that I have him in my life. He is not only my husband. He is my best friend. With him, I feel really secure. We can talk about anything under the sun. I miss how he makes me laugh and how he grabs his guitar and just sing his heart out. I can't wait for tomorrow for he will be arriving. I wish Friday is a holiday:)
