Prayer, to me, is a way to gather my positive thoughts and work to get rid of the negative ones. It is way of self-actualization and rejuvenation of my life energy. I don't believe that you have to be apart of any one religion to be able to pray. Anyone can do it, that's the beauty of it! But I think it is important that the person praying truly believe in the notion and power of change. Because if you don't believe, it won't work, and you won't be able to reap the many benefits that await you. Be Prosperous!
