I really prayed once before my first operation. I felt nauseated from the tumor. I didn’t know about the tumor then, so I prayed to G-D not to vomit. I didn’t vomit. Should I believe in G-D because s/he did what I asked? I think it’s important to have a belief that is bigger than human beings, but it’s hard for me to believe in something that I can’t see.
Maybe if my mom said “Beth I say G-D today and he wore a green jacket” but, it’s hard for me to believe.
Now I understand the benefits to believing. You’re a happier person. I know women who believe and they are awesome women. Believing probably would make me happier.
