Four stages of a Prayer: 1) First stage: At the first stage, one is praying and someone (God or Universe) is listening. It begins with words. Here the person is putting forward his desires and God is listening. 2) Second stage: At the second stage, the One who was listening is now talking and the person is listening. At this stage the prayer is over, now the person is being guided through an indication and message. The praying individual receives instructions about the work to be done to complete the object of his/her prayer. 3) Third stage: At this stage, neither party is talking; they are both listening. Both are witnessing the completion of the prayer. 4) Fourth stage: At this stage neither party is talking nor listening. That means they are in silence or moun. In this final stage, since the prayer is complete, there is no need for any talking or listening. When this stage is reached, silence manifests. Now only silence exists, and silence is the destination. This is the highest stage of prayer. The more you use the power of prayer, the more effective it will become. Through the power of prayer, your whole life will become amazing.
