We pray because it gives us peace, it frees us from problems we think we can never come out of. We need to believe that this divine power that helps us is also within us.
Belief is all we have, considering our limited view of the whole world that revolves around us. We can never know why certain things happen. So faith plays a role too.
May we extend this divinity towards ourselves by opening up through prayer and simply just by talking to God.
