What do you do when your fear something terrible is going to happen? I pray a lot, coz even if it doesnt solve or help, keeps me distracted from my fearings.

In normal practice, once when I foresee some thing terrible to happen, I may first consider if there are helps availabe to alliviate the unfavourable incident. However, if the situation is so bad that helps are not impossible, then I may pray to God. But I think this is wrong, maybe I should pray to God first and let Him give me hints on avoiding terrible things to take place rather than handling the issues with my limited wisdom.

You can also pray even if there's not anthing to help, ou can pray to thank Him for what he gives you, even if it is just peace or a family or a shelter. However i think that praying, what ever the reason is, is never wrong (unless of course you're praying to something wrong happens to somebody else). Thxs

FEAR is the culprit which is responsible for the failures in our lives. Praying will only help in distracting your mind for sometime but it will not solve your problem. dont get me wrong i'm not saying that praying is fruitless but what i'm saying is that for a permanent solution you have to do something else. And that something is ACTION. it is the only solution to do away with the fear. if you are afraid of dark, then all you need to do is move about in the dark room often, soon you'll find that you no longer fear it. anytime you find that you are scared of something, than sit back for a moment and think for ways that will help you get rid of it. do some work on it rather than just praying. all the best!

I always try to solve the situations but in some cases you cant do anything, just wait for the best. Also, sometimes anything you can possible do is helpless and only something stronger and out of any possible intervention (in my case God), can find the best way to solve it. Thxs

Same here. I take a deep breath, close my eyes, and pray. It helps a lot.
