‘Praying’ gives older adults a boost to live longer

Washington DC: Older adults, who pray regularly, are more likely to have a perception that God will be there to protect and comfort them in later stages of life, according to a study.

The study focuses on three measures of well-being — optimism, self-esteem and contentment with life — and shows that for all of them, there is a relationship between attachment to God and prayer.

“What we`re finding is that prayer can be associated with more or less well-being, depending on how you perceive God,” said a researcher Blake Kent from Baylor University in the US.”In a nutshell, the psychological benefits of prayer seem to be dependent on the quality of a person`s relationship with God,” Kent added.
