HOW PRAYER WORKS
The Civil Writer Magazine
Prayer doesn't created miracles, prayer assist the decision making whether mental or medical and the body healing you already have but are all too inept and unsuitable alone for the circumstances. Prayer doesn't take over it assists.
If a bear was chasing you, prayer doesn't change the bear's mind nor will it make you run any faster than the bear but it will assist you in decision making as you think in defense of the bear's action. A bear cannot pray so does nature give it an advantage over prayer? You cannot out run the bear but you can out-pray the bear to help you determine the next steps physically and literally.
