I pray regularly. We Muslims pray (like perform a ritual prayer) at specific times 5 times a day (minimum requirement) and prayer to us holds up the entire religion. It's to establish a connection with God, recognize His presence and power in your life, praise Him and thank Him for all that He's doing for us, ask Him to increase our faith in Him and guide us to the right path, ask for Heaven and refuge from Hell, ask Him to ease our hardships, ask Him to forgive our sins...You can never pray enough, really.

Prayer does give you a sense of comfort and security. We Muslims have a prayer for all sorts of situations from sleeping and waking up to eating and dressing oneself. For example, when riding anything--be it vehicle or an elevator--we have a little prayer we say. Shouldn't we thank God for bringing us to our destinations safely? Why do we only panic and call upon Him when a disaster happens? Well, surely it's human flaw...

I don't talk/'cry'/move around as much in my sleep now and I have less nightmares. Prayers definitely help. =]

Well, keep on praying and calling upon the Lord of the Worlds people! Viva Faith!

I guess I only pray when I need (want) to believe in something or someone.

I choose not to pray anymore. I went to Catholic school from 1st grade all the way to my senior year of high school. I kind of out grew organized religion and at this point in my life I don't believe in a christian god. I noticed that a lot of people, including family, only prayed when they wanted something or when they did something wrong...People either want things or are scared to go to hell. I RARELY see anyone genuinely pray. I am not judging anyone because I was exactly like that and I realized I didn't want to be apart of something that basically discriminated against anything different, like other religions and homosexuality, and threatened people with an unhappy afterlife if they didn't convert.
