    How does a prayer help you?

    Sometimes in life we encounter situations where we have nothing to do other than pray. It helps in many ways. How does it help you? (Considering you do pray or have prayed sometime in your life)

    God answers Prayer, so prayer helps because we realize that we're not in control and have to give the situation up to God to handle because we can't.  God answers Prayer, so we lift up our needs to Him to handle for us.

    When God answers my prayers it gives me the peace in knowing that God is still in control of this universe.  It also allows me to know that God is there all the time and not just when I need Him.

    I don't really know how it helps.I think that mentally you have a sort of faith that helps you along in hard times. I believe in God though. I just don't understand why we pray because God has already planned our lives out and we have already lived our live in His eyes right? He already knows how our live are gonna play out doesn't He? I don't know. I just know that prayer is good for the soul at least.

    God can give any of your request if that is His will because His will be done on earth.
