in World Religions

The prayer, a fundamental religious act, which may be formulated in the form of a request, a thanksgiving or as a dialogue. Whether in Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism or Judaism – in all five world religions, the prayer is a communion with their God or a Higher Power. Thanking God, asking him for something, recapitulating the day, finding peace – all that can be contained in a prayer. We pray because we are looking for answers, consolation and strength and because in times of stress we seek peace and reflection. Some people also pray out of tradition or out of a sense of duty to their God. Some may also wish to have their prayers answered. There are studies investigating whether what we ask for in prayer actually comes true. The results, however, are not unequivocal. But to the one who prays this is no reason to stop. For the benefit of prayer cannot be measured by studies. For many the happiness of praying consists less in having their requests answered than in their contact with God. Together with the extensive accompanying material the DVD is perfectly suited for use in the classroom. Target group: primary school, special needs school, secondary school
