Prayer: There is a Reason No One Answers

There's a reason no one answers

There's a reason that prayer is so thoroughly ineffective: nobody's on the receiving end. Prayer can be an effective form of relaxation or self-soothing. It can even make us feel better for a brief time in much the same way meditation might. Still, none of this should be confused with any sort of divine intervention or the presence of supernatural entities. There's a reason no one answers. No one is there.

For those of you living in the United States, happy National Day of Prayer. Here's hoping we can end this unconstitutional travesty sooner than later.
