Do prayers help us in our everyday life?
Do you pray? Perhaps you consider praying a loss of time ..... or praying doesn't even cross your mind
I do not pray as I am not religious. But surely this depends on that question itself? Whether a person is religious or not?
You are right of course. If you're not religious you do not feel the need or the urge to pray. I consider myself lucky to be religious ...... cause I have Someone to lean on when I am sick, or in some trouble or when my children are sick .........
I used to pray as a small kid and I guess it helped me. I felt a bit better because I thought that someone was going to help me with all my problems, but as I don't do it anymore, well, I think I just stopped thinking about it, too. I would, now, probably consider it a loss of time because it wouldn't help me as it used to, with me having stopped believing. It really does have a lot to do with being religious or not. If you are, it totally helps! It's like acupuncture, you just have to think it works and it does.
Right you are. Faith is a prerequisite. Prayer is like everything else, you need to have faith in what you are doing to succeed. I do have faith in God although I am ONLY a catholic not a saint. There must be a great POWER.. the human body, you
I'm not religious but I have become spiritual over the years. I feel like praying helps me let go of things I have no control over. This is something I need since I have a tendency to be a control freak and all that causes me is stress.
By control freak, do you mean that you lose control over some things? We are all like that dear. I cannot control myself from smoking cigars or from abstaining from sugar. However I keep trying. If I fail, no stress. Keep trying ask Jesus to help y
prayer is everything in life....at times you may think you pray but God doesn't but in fact He gives in the following ways:
1) God Gives you what you wish and you are happy
2) God delays but gives you something better
3) God save you because it might be what you asked would have caused harm in some ways. so God doesnt give you and am sure prepares something good for you
and patience is the key to faith... if you have faith you dont have to worry... but still you have to "trust God , but tie your camel"..
Great answer Sanaaya. God almost always gives me what I ask, cause I do not overstep my limits. It's like when a girl asks her father for some money, 25 not 100. I do not ask him to make me win the lottery but to help me in my work to earn more
I think sincere prayer gives us focus, peace in times of difficulty, and adjusts our moral compass. It acknowledges a Supreme Being and an awareness that we have an ongoing need for guidance as well as someone to thank for the blessings we enjoy. I do not have all the answers, but as I look back over time and see the changes in my life that could not have been the products of my own will, my faith is reinforced by answers to prayer that go well beyond "coincidence". Not all that I've prayed for has been provided but, as I review it, that's entirely understandable; not everything I've prayed for would ultimately have benefitted me as an individual, husband or parent. No, I do not regard praying as time poorly used. In a sense, it gives me new reasons to be open to things to be thankful for that I might otherwise have overlooked.
