Does praying really work? Can you kneel down, put your hands together, close your eyes, and pray to God for whatever you are praying for to make a difference? And if you do, does it really help or make that difference? Well I know you can knell down, put your hands together, close your eyes, and pray to God, but I don't believe it does anything. Now let me say right off the bat that I do believe in God, and I do have my own believes. But as far as praying goes, its not for me. Praying is more like a state of mind thing, to make you feel better. It is said that you talk to God through your prayers. Well I can talk with out using prayer. And praying for someone to get better from being sick or whatever the case maybe does not work in my option. If its your time to go, its your time to go. Praying is more for a state of mind. To make you feel better. People do the same thing when they meditate, to relax there body and mind. And if that is what you need to do to make you feel better then do what you have to do. But as far as how I feel, it does not help. Sorry if I offend anyone, but just like you have the right to believe in what you want to, well so do I. I use to pray all the time. And after I stopped praying, nothing changed. My life goes on the same. Now I have heard that paying for some people makes thing easier or there life feel more complete. And like I said before, its a state of mind. And my state of mind is not in the need for comfort in that way. This is just how I feel. And I am sure I am not the only one out there that feels this way.
