Does a quick, silent prayer comforts you when you feel a little distressed? How do you pray? Do you believe in the powers of prayers?

Yes, I do pray each night and day because I believe that the most powerful channel of communication to GOD is thru PRAYERS.....

I always pray because that's the way people speak to God. God speaks to us thru the Holy Bible which necessitates people to read it so that they would know what God is saying. I believe in God and even if I am distressed, I am assured that God will not forsake me. Prayers are powerful to those who are righteous and persistent in asking God to grant requests in accordance with the will of God.

Yes, I do. Because it's the only source of my security and peace of mind. I find comfort in praying to God when I have problems because I know He's up there, listening. Everyday, I try opening to God everything that's happened to me. I ask for guidance that He'll give me the wisdom to know what's right from wrong. I ask for comfort... Eventually, He'd help me out. Yes, I believe in the powers of prayers. I've witnessed miracles too. I pity those who don't pray...

I do believe in prayer. I find that I am at my best on those days that I seem to continually pray. I just enjoy talking to God and the peace that it gives me. Whether I am distressed or not, I still pray. I love thanking God for the many blessings He has bestowed upon me. I am so grateful for the life I have, my husband and my children. I believe very strongly in the power of prayer and I have seen the power of prayer, both individual prayer and prayer circles. What about you?

This is what I do as well. I have found an amazing calm just by praying continually whether I am feeling distressed or blessed. Actually I think it is even more important to pray, thanking God for His blessing than it is to pray, asking for his help.

I also find comfort in prayer. I have personally experienced the power of prayers. It gives me emotional peace and guides me throughout. I always get confused when it comes to taking decisions, at that time Prayer helps me to analyse things in a wiser manner and helps me in deciding.

As a cancer survivor,I most definitely believe in prayer. I pray as much as I can for everything in my life. I am comforted by prayer because when there is no one else to talk to, I have God.

Yes, I do pray. Usually I spend some time in prayer before breakfast commiting the whole day, my family, my work, friends etc to God and asking for help and guidance throughout the day. Also, sometimes a situation calls for urgent whispers of SOS to God, especially if it has to do with making a quick decision, or to control my temper or to help someone and I feel like I don't have the wisdom. And, definitely when I am down and need encouragement and need to talk to someone, I will tell God about it. Prayer has helped me moved on from day to day despite the struggles I face everday.

Yes I pray, sometimes with long prayer, another time with a quick one...I also go to church almost every Sunday and pray there. the prayer really gives me deep peace. I feel the power of God in me when I am praying. I think the prayer is very important to keep the contact with our God. we hear God's words when we are reading The Holy Bible, And we talk to our Lord when we pray.
