People who pray live more happily

People who go to church and people who pray live a life more happily than agnostics and atheists. According to British scientists who studied the relation between religion and a happy life, it is known for a long time that faith can be a personal bastion against grieve or lose. But at an economical congress at Coventry they stated that it even can be a “life insurance” against disaster. Believers cope more easily with setbacks, losses or losing their job. The scientists are surprised this aspect doesn’t get more attention. Believing seems not only to be a ‘weapon’ against stress, but also leads to political statements and therefore influences the evolution of social and economical structures.
