A Prayer is an act, and prayerfulness is an attitude… Mature, objective response to both pleasant and unpleasant situations comes from prayerful attitude. The act of prayer serves to make one prayerful. Being prayerful, one’s response to varying situations would be effective without one being in anyway affected. This attitude also helps one to accept one’s past as well as the present situation. The more prayerful one is, the freer one becomes from guilt, hurt and from self-loath. In the wake of graceful acceptance, there is serenity.
