Supplication as Part of Meditation and Prayer


Supplication can be a way of asking for our prayers to be answered.

Supplication with meditation, hand in hand, and energy uplifted by appreciation can carry out a useful plan.

Supplication is a part of the process of requesting order and harmony to flood into our lives:

1. Supplication - asking for guidance by using our own words or set prayers.
2. Meditation - being still in body, which is conducive to the settling of the turbulent waters of issues in the mind - confusion falling away so that the voice of our conscience can be heard.
3. Appreciation - caring, thankful, and loving thoughts, which in turn energize our body.
4. Application - putting the inner guidance of our conscience into action.

The set prayers from religious traditions, or our own spontaneous thoughts, can set us in the frame of mind that something outside our ordinary daily thinking and experience can intercede in our lives - some call this our Higher Self; some call this the name of God from their own tradition.

We can ask for events to turn a certain way when we want a specific outcome, or we can ask for the best (though perhaps unknown to us in the moment) outcome to happen in our lives or in others' lives in general.

Both ways we are intentionally putting forth our energy.

This is an example of a prayer asking for the 'best' outcome:

Lord, clear my mind
That your beam of light and love shining through me
Will reflect perfectly through the crystal of my soul
Till all that seems me becomes all that is Thee
Till everyone and all in creation reflect all that is Thee.


Whether or not we use a set group of words in our supplication, we need to spend the moments following our supplication for meditation and reflection. Deep meditation and reflection allow answers to filter into our waking mind, ready for action.

1. Supplication
2. Meditation
3. Appreciation
4. Application
