• What does prayer mean?
  • Prayer (to ask earnestly, beg, entreat) is an invocation or act that seeks to activate a rapport with an object of worship through deliberate communication. In other words, Prayer is a call or action that aims to activate a relationship with a Deity or spiritual being. Prayer, as an individual or society can be public or private place. It could be just words or songs. It may also contain various bodily movements.
  • Prayer has different forms as a call, gratitude or worship / praise.
  • Some anthropologists believe that the earliest intelligent modern humans practiced a form of prayer. Today, most major religions involve prayer in one way or another; some ritualize the act of prayer, requiring a strict sequence of actions or placing a restriction on who is permitted to pray, while others teach that prayer may be practiced spontaneously by anyone at any time.
  • There are four semantic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Bahai Bahá’í Faith), defined as Abraham religions, with a concept and understanding of prayer that is similar in their own and differentiated in some points from other monotheistic religions.
