I notice that several people are expressing disillusionment at their lack of results from praying. When I pray, I don't ask for cure but rather for the strength to cope. I pray that I make the right decisions at the right time, that I can be the best person that I can be and I ask for the ability to see and correct my ways when I go wrong. I pray for inner peace and calm, wisdom. etc It does not really matter to me if someone prays to Jesus, to God, to the universe or to their subconsious mind, Prayer can have a very empowering effect and really does work. If nothig else,it focuses the mind on achieving the desired results. Some may say that if that is the case, then it is just positive thinking and nothing to do with religion, that is ok by me. For the record, I pray to God.
