Prayer involves a repetition of words and sounds which
produce a healing effect. The physical changes that
take place in the body when someone meditates,
include – a decrease in metabolism, heart rate,blood
pressure, rate of breathing, slower brainwaves and
enhanced feelings of control, peace and tranquility.

into another agency, believed to be a higher power
and diminishes the negative inputs thus reducing
burden of suffering and making the mind feel better.
