I consider myself a spiritual person over a religious person. I can see how many people confuse the two but for me there is a huge difference. I am Jewish, was raised that way and go to an Orthodox synagogue here in Los Angeles but that doesn’t deter me from getting my spiritual fix any which way I can.
I started praying when I was newly sober nine years ago. My sponsor told me to get on my knees every morning and say a few prayers. As a Jewish girl I was used to getting on my knees for one thing only so this was a new concept for me.
To this day I get on my knees every morning and I pray, not for myself but for God’s will for me and the power to carry that out. In my recovery program they say only pray for others not for you. I’m not sure I agree with that. There are many times I will pray for a solution to a problem or for help for myself.
When I was in a particular predicament after having three miscarriages recently I prayed like there was no tomorrow but was not getting any relief. Then, a friend told me about Silent Unity’s prayer request. (You either call or send your prayer request in by phone or online). She told me that every time she put a prayer request in and they prayed for her for 30 days, whatever problem she was dealing with was resolved.
You would have thought that she told me where the fountain of youth was because I immediately went on the site and put in a prayer request and I continue to do so when I need help. My friend was right every single situation that I prayed about a solution for was resolved within 30 days. Even though this is a Christian church and I am Jewish doesn’t mean I can’t utilize their services because spirituality and help is there for anyone who needs it no matter what race, color or religion you are.
