I used to pray when I was a kid because I went to catholic school, and I thought I was going to go to hell if I didn’t. But as I got older I just started praying when I was afraid something bad was going to happen- I think it just makes me feel better. I don’t know if it affects the outcome of my situation ever 🙂
As a cognitive exercise, I think praying is a good habit because it makes you appreciate what you have- and who doesn’t want that?
And for the record, I would definitely pray if it rained in space…I’m pretty sure that is mentioned in Revelations 🙂
