This was the hardest part of the brainwashing for me to overcome. When you pray you reaffirm that you believe. When you've been taught from birth to pray insistently, it's very difficult to stop. A recovering alcoholic can avoid places and friends that might trigger him to start drinking again. The recovering Christian can't avoid the voice in his head.
