Why it is a help in times of trouble

June 21st 2012
You will often have noticed how those people for whom prayer is a natural, spontaneous response are better equipped than others when faced with suffering and misfortune. Because they are able to struggle free from the darkness and heaviness of the earth and address the heavenly powers, they experience less bitterness and discouragement. Some of the trials we have to live through may be related to the collectivity and be impossible to avoid. Take war, for example: during a war, no one is spared one way or other. But those who pray, who call on the power of the spirit, change their inner state, and even if outwardly events are the same for everybody, where others around them allow themselves to be overwhelmed, these people receive help from the light. And thanks to this help, they can also support and encourage others.
