    My priest prayed over me so many times physically and from distance, do you think there is benefit?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    There should be. While you're at it though, don't stop praying for yourself too.

    "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

    2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

    3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God and our Saviour' I Tim 2:1-3

    There is prayers in the priest's prayer book only for the person he prays for. The other prayers are said in the liturgy.

    When the priest is praying over you, you must bow down your head and not think for nothing. But you must think for something once and what about you thinking in this moment will become true my priest said.

    He said it is written in the priest's prayer book what you think of in the time of the prayer will become true.

    He also said that for the prayer to work the human must have faith also the priest.

    It is written:

    Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
