Praying is a way people communicate to God or whomever deity they worship or believe in. It is a way to express their gratitude, ask for guidance, ask for forgiveness, or to just talk about anything, and everything in general.
Praying helps us strengthen our relationship with God, and with ourselves. Praying makes us vulnerable, it is a moment in our life wherein we aren’t in control. All we have is our faith that our prayers will be heard.
It is something we hang onto when times get tough. It helps keep a positive mindset because we surrender ourselves to God. We accept that this is our reality. It gives us faith, which is the strongest weapon we can use to get through life. It gives you the strength to keep going forward. When we pray, we are at peace. When we are at peace, we are at our best.
