We pray a lot and that's ok. In prayer we are often praying to... and asking for..., in other words we are speaking not listening and often defining our needs or problems using the vary mind that results in our needs and our problems. Our needs and problems are far from our comprehension. The standard reasoning, we are conditioned with will continue to perpetuate stress and pain. The natural state of spirit is complete peace that smiles. To engage with truth and peace learn how to still the mind's falsehoods.
