Dr.Alexis Carrel Nobel prize winner said in an article his opinion on prayer:
“Prayer is the most potent form of energy one can generate. It is a force as real as terrestrial gravity.
As a physician, I have seen people after all other therapy had failed, lifted out of disease and melancholy by the serene effort of prayer.
In prayer, human beings seek to augment their finite energy by addressing themselves to the infinite source of all power.
When we pray, we link ourselves with the inexhaustible motive power that spins the universe. We pray that a part of this energy is apportioned to our needs”.
2-Prayer gives us a sense of sharing our burdens, of not being alone. Sometimes our worries are such intimate nature that we cannot discuss them even with our closest relatives and friends. Then prayer is the answer. Any psychologist will tell us that when we are tense and in an agony of spirit, it is good to say, someone, our troubles. When we can’t tell anyone else -we can tell God.
