Whether we are inclined to any particular faith or spirituality, there are some situations which we come to face where prayer–any form of it–can be the best recourse.

It’s not about any external religion or deity but a human need and vulnerability which causes us to surrender to something which might be greater than us or something external if us and we hope for some clarity or release.

Sometimes, prayer us not so much for an external deity as it is for ourselves as a way for us to cope, process, and deal with the unknown, the uncertain, and the unpredictable.

Prayer can just be simply about surrendering our human ego and realizing that it’s not all up to us… And that something larger is at work, as we humbly recognize the need to ask for help.
