Elizer needed something. His faith was all that he had. His prayers, initially anyway, sustained him. They gave him a framework for hope and rational thought. I suppose I might do the same thing. Fortunately nothing close to this has ever happened to me but I imagine I would need something to believe in. I would need something to explain the Hell I was in and something to sustain my identity that has been so forcefully stripped from me.
