The good thing about a circle is that it has no beginning or an end. If you make yourself part of a praying circle you will be praying for yourself and others or someone will be praying for you.While it may be possible for you to get things done by yourself, you will get more done with divine help.
As far as we know the surest way to getting divine help is through prayers. Last month when I was speaking to abbot at a monastery, he said the biggest problem we have today, is that we are not praying enough. He said the monks were not praying enough, lay people were not praying enough, parents and their their children were not praying enough. How many times do you pray everyday?
