Peace will not come through prayer

Praying to God for a particular outcome, the Dalai Lama says, shows a lack of confidence in ourselves and our actions, along with laziness and unwillingness to work.
Sometimes I think we (should) just relax, lay down, give all responsibility to God -- "You do this, you do that." Impossible! Our own future depends on our own actions.
The Dalai Lama, speaking at Middlebury College, Oct. 13, 2012

 I do not believe peace will come through prayer. Peace will come through our action, not prayer.
