Prayer has been very misunderstood in the past. It has become part of the belief in God; hence those who don’t believe in God can’t pray. That has deprived millions of people of prayer. Prayer has to be freed from a belief in God. In fact, prayer comes first, God comes later on. God is not a prerequisite to praying, it is a consequence of prayer. If you are in prayer, you will become aware of the existence of God. Then there will be no need to believe in God.
