Prayer helps us make the right decisions. Prayer keeps us calm in the storm. Prayer releases us from the burden of trying to figure everything out.
Prayer works, even if we are not sure it will work. It works because it’s an act of letting go. And because it changes the way we interact with others.
Faith does not require absolute belief. We will have doubts. To doubt is human. Faith is a moment of reaching out to God, even if we are not sure he is there.
We will encounter many situations throughout the day where a moment of prayer will help us stay calm and focused. You don’t need to be on your knees to do it. It can be done anywhere, any time. A quiet place alone is best, but if that’s not available, pray on the go. It’s just about releasing our concerns to God. It can be done in seconds: “God, I give this situation to you.”
