Can prayer bend time?
Prayer is powerful. It brings peace, solutions to problems and what not?
Miracles happen when you pray!
Take for example a small incident. A beautiful girl was going to return home late at night after attending a party. She has a long way to go. When she arrives at the bus stop at a stranded place she is puzzled by the silence of the night and the darkness surrounding the area.
As she waits for the bus, four or five rioters come towards her. Seeing them, the girls begin to pray. If some powerful force doesn’t come for help, she will definitely be disturbed to unimaginable heights.
At that precise moment a bus arrives and stops at the bus stop. The driver says that there is only one seat and the bus is going to the exact place where the girl wants to go.
Prayer is answered, her parents say upon hearing her story. She also feels the same. God has granted her prayer.
But the septic will say that there is no effect due to prayer and the incident can be called a mere coincidence.
But scientists are now coming to the conclusion that a lot of authentic research can see the effect of prayer.
Leonard Leibocici published an interesting study in 2001. It addressed the hypothesis that retroactive prayer for a group of septic patients could affect clinical outcomes, when prayer was offered four to ten years after the development of clinical problems.
The patients were found to be incredibly cured. Prayer can bend time and bring positive results.
In all religions the importance of prayer is emphasized. In Mahabharata, the great Indian epic, Kunti devi wants a lot of problems on her way so that she can always remember and pray to Lord Krishna.
Krishna declares, “I am Time.”
When Richard Feynman, the famous Nobel physicist, was asked, “What is time?” he replied, “What is time? We physicists work with it every day, but don’t ask me what it is. It’s too hard to think about.”
True, no one could define time.
The famous physicist Paul Davies once said: “Notions like ‘past’, ‘present’ and ‘future’ seem to be more linguistic than physical.”
The general idea is that the past influences the present. But modern physics has shown that time is tied to space. So, if by due prayer, it may be possible to double the time. The past can be altered, modified, changed to suit the present situation of the one who is praying!
The Hindu Puranas reveal the mystery of time through various stories. And we get to know many examples from history. The great saint Thirugnana Sambandar has brought back Poombavai from her bones. Another great saint, Sundarar, brought back a boy who was taken by a crocodile a few years ago.
Arthur Eddington correctly said: “Something unknown is doing what we don’t know what.”
If we say that God is a mystery, we can likewise add that the power of prayer is also a mystery. Let us always pray and obtain the benefits.
