Prayer is a sacred ritual that allows us to remember who we are, to remember all of those who are forgotten and all of those who need healing. Through prayer, we learn to accept all of the things we can improve, reflect with gratitude on all the things we did so well and to ask not for material possessions, but for the clarity and guidance to do better tomorrow.
We stopped praying because we loudly scream about us not belonging to any religion. And that's fine. But what is prayer after all? It's a sacred ritual that one may use in order to connect to that vital energy, God, Universe, Unconditional Love (you name it). Mother Teresa did it with devotion every day of her life, so did Jesus and many other spiritual influential people. Many of us believe that we are so over any religion and/or that praying is so overrated. We are willing to rigorously repeat positive affirmations EVERY single day in order to gain something "I am wealthy, I am happy, I am confident, Etc." Doing visualizations and other mental work. Instead of surrendering to the divine flow and offering ourselves as servants to that Great Universal Energy.
