Prayer works when you first define your target/ objective, put your mind (work smart) and muscles (work hard) to it.
So many people pray daily. However, without action, progress is limited. We read that God works in mysterious ways. And I am sure He listens to folks who do something about what they are praying for.
A case in point
If you are a candidate about to sit for your end of year exams, do you just wake up and pray? Or you say a short prayer before going to class. A prayer before revision. And a prayer before a discussion.
Praying gives discipline of focus and respect.
It is a personal choice. Because God gives opportunities to all His creatures, those who pray or do not have chances to succeed. And that is ok. But folks who pray have the discipline to succeed with both a heart (wise) and brain (intelligent) at the same time.
People who pray tend to develop a set of values. A person who prayers and works hard towards their dreams or aspirations is desired as they may not get out of their way easily to do very bad things to humanity. Some people pretend to pray when they are brainwashed morons, and these are the real pain to society.
To be continued.
