  • When I am upset, it calms me momentarily. And of course, if I start trying to rely on myself at another point, I find I've fallen again... but He will always be there to pick me up :)

  • Yes it does! Sometimes my DH or my toddler will just get on my last nerves and when I go to the Lord in prayer, it really does help!

  • I am not religious but more spiritual. That said, one day when I was at my wit's end, I begged God, the Universe, whomever, to help me with patience and anger. I prayed for about a week each night. My anger VANISHED which has allowed me to cope so much better. I can hardly believe it myself, seriously!

  • You better believe it does! God is always there, and when I ask Him for guidance, strength, wisdom, He always comes through. My family and I are much better with God in our lives.

  • That's probably different for everyone. It helps me because I can voice my concerns to someone who isn't going to judge or answer, but just listen. Then I can get a fresh perspective. Plus most of the time, when I pray my prayers are answered relatively shortly thereafter.

  • No, but I don't think I've been consistent enough to know...
