When i was very young, my friends and I were often trying to diet, our motto was : a moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips. It meant that an act that took just an instant could remain with you forever. I like to apply this phrase to the process of prayer. A prayer takes just a matter of seconds to utter, but its influence in our lives on our behavior on our hearts on our perceptions can be permanent. A moment on our lips is a lifetime on our souls. A simple prayer can change us, can lead us on the path to healing ourselves and the world. So pray, please pray for peace, pray for healing, pray for advances in science, pray for the goodness, pray for everything.

Its certain belief that there is a being greater than you who could give everything that you wish.

Remember if there is no end consequence, there is no reason in being morally sound. When you pray, pray as if whatever you are wishing for has already happened. I believe this was taught in Matthew of the New Testament Bible.
