This is my first post and I am not usually good at explaining myself, so just bear with me.
By asking the question "does prayer do anything for you?" it really depends on how you define prayer. Growing up the way I have, you learn society
puts a lable on things. Prayer to me was always limited to talking to God (in the christian/catholic sence), my RE teacher and the world around me
As I grew up I began to learn different things. Finnally a friend of mine pointed me in the direction of Wicca, I bought a few books and read up on
it. Basically I was doing what the rede said without realising it. I began to read deeper and deeper and finnaly decided to become wiccan, some things
apealed some didnt. I dont like to lable myself as wiccan recently, I suppose if i had to put a lable on what i am i would say im an ecclectic witch.
I do my rituals and give thanks to the earth. This can be seen as a form of prayer. To me its putting my mind into athe right frame to begin down the
path of what im wanting, kinda visulisaition.
Told you I was no good at explaining myself. This all sounds a little weak.
But I think what I am really trying to say is, it depends on the persons view of what prayer is, to how it will help them. With me my rituals (a form
of prayer so to speak) help me with giving thanks and focusing my mind.
