This caught my eye just now. Prayer is a big part of scripture and most spiritual tradition have some form of prayer, mantras, something to that effect. Why? I I suppose prayer says a few things, especially when you pray for those that have done you harm, pray for justice, not revenge, justice, also for their transformation. It shows a certain level of spiritual maturity, as well as general maturity. It also shows God that we are not being self centered, that we acknowledge him, others, particularly if we are not just praying about “give me this Lord, make this happen for me” Me, Me, Me. If we pray enhance the gifts His wishes to enhance in us and use them as He wishes to use them, as they can best serve His will, that he and you both are overjoyed, in accordance with His boundaries, then I think we show great wisdom. Praying this kind of prayer I think and for others in this same way and for their well being, their transformation to spiritual wisdom is a great thing.
