Prayer assumes superhuman being, who is able to hear and listen. The prayer takes place where a person has a personal relationship with a God or gods and treats him as an entity, with which he can communicate. Many religious thinkers and theologians tried to resolve the paradox, how can a person through prayer change the will of the God, whose will is unalterable. They agree, however, that the will of God, which is for the good, can not be changed, but the purpose of prayer is to strengthen the human will, and so encourage the soul to adapt to the will of God to change for the better. Prayer thus can open up new sources of knowledge and help him to fulfill his wishes and ideas. One can pray during worship, together with others, or alone. Christians are addressing directly to God during prayers, and they are considering, that God hears their prayers. Prayer is addressed to any of the persons of the Holy Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In the Catholic and Orthodox churches, prayer can be addressed also to the Virgin Mary and other saints, then such a prayer is in fact asking them for their intercession with God. Christians also believes, that God is able to speak to believer in prayer by the Holy Spirit. It may be a prophecy, enlightenment or personal inspiration, addressing certain verses of the Holy Scripture, or the initiative to act in a certain everyday situation.
