God does not need us but we need God in our life. Without God man starts creating small holocaust which become world moving event. In the time of prayer we reflect on our pass present and future deeds. When you see the medics in Israel you a religious jew always present in time of crises and yet he prayed regardless of his hard time with the task at hand. When you land up in Hospital any where in the world you will find a Chabad house not far who will provide you with free kosher food. It is a reality that a Jews that prays 5 times a day, when he wakes up when he attends the morning service, then the afternoon, then the evening and finally before he lays his head on a pillow, that this Jew will do a lot more good deeds then a non-praying one. Were it not for our prayers the good words of Christianity of love would not have spread across the world. Our Jewish prayers are sacred and do not hinder in any way our task at hand to make our world a better place with God's help.
