A new study says prayer helps boost self-control and emotional stability. German Researchers found people who turn to prayer as a coping response to the high demands in life are rewarded with an increased ability to resist temptation. Scientists say belief in God also helps to alleviate the symptoms of depression. Experts followed 159 patients at a psychiatric hospital over the course of a year and found a relationship between a patients’ level of belief in a higher power and actual treatment outcomes. Praying has already been linked in the past to reduced levels of infidelity and alcohol consumption.
