I was a christian but i changed my religion to buddhism. Ive learned many things and taken up on many of the buddhist iddeals. I wasnt much into christianity (i guess thats why i changed) I have a question that i was thinking about earlier. Does praying really work. As a buddhist i have learned to not think about the negatives, this has made me happier. But it seems like when you pray for forgiveness, its just reminding you of what you ahve done wrong. Do you honestly feel that this helps you or does it make you sadder? Thanks for your responses.
