Prayer and other holistic practices are never meant to be a substitution for medical care or use of medication. Holistic practices are meant to be complimentary to doctor's orders.)
Many of us have a need to interact with a greater intelligence than our own. Many spiritual practices use prayer as a way to interact with that greater intelligence.
Prayer is a very private experience and as such can be a very powerful tool for getting to know more about our thoughts and feelings. Prayer offers deep long-term learning and understanding of self-hood in reference to all that is and a greater intelligence. Prayer is considered by many to be very beneficial in emotional healing processes, addiction recovery, and general happiness.
Prayer is considered by many to have the same benefits of meditation. For people living with ADHD these benefits include:
Improved Executive Function
Benefits for hyperactivity
More choices with compulsive behavior.
Increased effectiveness with habit change and addiction.
Prayer is private and free. If you think it might help give it a try.
“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
