    Outloud

    I pray all the time silently to myself.  I cannot bring myself to pray outloud in front of others.  I am sure this stems from being chastized as a child for chosing a different religon than my father.

    Prayer is for everyone.

    You don't have to believe in prayer for prayer to work. There are lots of prayer sites where people will pray for you. What have you got to lose?
