The Vedas teach that you should adore and worship God in gratitude for His benedictions. The Bible teaches that one should pray for peace and practice charity. Quran impresses upon you to show mercy to the suffering and to surrender your will to the All High. Buddhist texts teach the lesson of detachment and sense-control. The Zend-Avesta exhorts you to get rid of evil propensities and shine in your own innate glory. Hence all of you must realise that the teachings of all religions are One and that prayer in any language and addressed to any Name reaches the same God. Understand that God can be invoked through a picture or an idol to fulfil your sincere desire, provided it is helpful to others as well as to yourself. The Balvikas guru has to imbibe all these qualities and then teach them to the Balvikas children by precept and example.

If we prayed as much as we worried, we would worry a lot less We all worry sometime or the other. And to some extent, worrying is just natural and unavoidable because so many things that are important for us are not in our control.

Still, if we consider the amount of mental time we spend on worrying, we will recognize that it is enormous – and enormously unproductive, in fact cou
nterproductive.
While there are no quick fixes to the problem of excessive worrying, still we can progress towards a solution by appreciating that the same mental time can be more productively used by connecting with the one who is the controller of everything – including the things that are not in our control, the things about which we are worrying so much.
The best way to shift our focus thus is by praying, praying not just that the uncontrollable issues be resolved but also that our own uncontrolled mind's tendency to obsess over the uncontrollable be curbed. And that inner redirection happens through not just praying for something material but by praying to connect with the supreme trans-material reality, God, Krishna.
The Bhagavad-gita (18.58) assures that the more we become conscious of Krishna, the more we can pass over all obstacles by his grace.
Henceforth, each time we start experiencing a worry attack – a sudden upsurge in our mind's tendency to obsess over the uncontrollable – we can strive to become prayer warriors, who counter that worry attack by focusing on the Lord of our hearts and of our world, Krishna. The time-honored process of bhakti-yoga enables us to become expert prayer-warriors who can at will and with effectiveness focus on Krishna.
Even if our bhakti practice doesn't remove all our worry, it can decrease that worry substantially, thereby decreasing our distress and heightening our happiness.
Think it over:
How can we get the impetus to stop or at least decrease worrying? When dealing with worry, what can we pray for? How can we become prayer warriors?
