Do what comes naturally

Jean McMahon, writing in the Reader’s Digest, described a church service in Kentucky, where she watched an irate father carry a boisterous child out of the service, slung under his arm. No one so much as raised an eyebrow — until the child captured everyone’s attention by crying out in a very Southern accent: “Ya’ll pray for me now!” And they did.
Well, praying is the one thing human beings tend to do instinctively while wondering why on earth they are doing it intellectually. But, as Dr Samuel Johnson once said: “Prayer does not need proof outside itself because its proofs are within. It is in the nature and function of man, like breathing, eating and drinking, and he practices it as part of his very being.”
So, when you find yourself wanting to say a prayer, don’t fight it, just do what comes naturally.
