What's the point of Prayer?

A Bahá'í Conversation by Anthony Naimi and Michael Sabet

Episode notes

In this Episode, we explore the concept of prayer. We focus on a few questions that someone encountering the concept of prayer for the first time might ask, such as:

  • Why should we think that anyone is listening to our prayers, let alone answering them?

  • What are our goals in praying?

  • What impact can prayers have on ourselves, and on the world?

As always, we draw on the Writings of the Bahá'í Faith to help us suggest some answers to these questions.
