Here is an extract from ‘The Powers of Thought’, chapter 12, ‘Creative Prayer.

Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov explains that however difficult and painful our external circumstances, all human beings possess an ‘atom of prayer’ which gives us the power to transform how we experience our ordeals.

The atom of prayer- God’s greatest gift to human beings

Even if you were ground to dust so fine that you think there could be nothing left of you, there would always be one atom left, one atom which can never be destroyed and with which you are capable of rebuilding the whole universe. And that atom is the gift of prayer and supplication. This is the greatest of God’s gifts to human beings: without it the human race would have disappeared long ago.

True prayer is a creation. it creates a link with the most sublime of all beings, the creator of heaven and Earth. When we pray to this sublime Being we are creating a bond with Him, with His immensity, His infinity, and thanks to this bond we can make contact with and capture elements of the higher world, for the benefit of all creatures. For this is something that you must realise, the elements, particles and ‘electrons’ of this sublime region are so powerful that, even if you mange to capture only one, it will work unimaginable transformations!

The atom of prayer restores harmony to our whole being

You will feel it vibrating within you as it purifies, enlightens and heals you and restores harmony to your whole being, and this beneficial, radiant state of harmony will influence all those you come in contact with, and they too will begin to be transformed. Even the weakest, most destitute of human beings possesses this atom of prayer and has the power to work with it. Even if someone lacks money, food and clothing, even if he is in prison, he can be very powerful.

Prayer can remedy every situation

Talents, money,and strength are not given to all, but all can use the power of this atom to ask, to insist that the luminous spirits on high come and help them. If you don’t ask for help when you have to face up to great difficulties, you will be powerless to do anything about them. This atom of prayer is the only thing that can remedy every situation, but you must give it some work to do, otherwise you will simply have to put up with whatever was planned for you.

The power of this atom is in the psychic dimension, that is to say, in the area of your thoughts and emotions. When you pray, even if nothing changes in your external circumstances, you cannot remain unchanged. If there is a war, it will continue; if it is freezing you will be cold; yes but your prayer will have changed something inside you.
