    A Long Road

    I grew up in what some might call a sort of hell. I won't state the exact surrounding but I grew up in a refinery controlled town. This time has a title, the rise of crystal meth and the reforms of the refineries. This area from when I was young and till now produces 25% of the...

    But...

    Oddly enough I can't get this out of my mind... over and over but only the beginning "Now I lay me down to sleep..." then again I'm also singing "ashes ashes we all fall down" so who knows where my mind is. .... life is but a dream

    It is not that I do it on purpose

    or that I "want" to stop praying, but I feel my heart is dead now, I really do. When I hear the prayers call now, I feel as if it is something irrelevant to me, it doesn't even occur to me that I should get up and pray, it is as if the prayers call is not really calling me, it...

    Even As Spiritual As I Am, Praying Is Lost Act For Me

    Too many unanswered prayiors, too much gone undone.  I have not been protected when I beckoned for it.  I have not been assured when I needed it and I have not been answered when it meant most.  So I no longer pray, life is the same but I keep my dignity I...

    Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep...

    I pray the Lord My soul to keep If I should die Before I wake I pray the Lord My soul to take.   Everynight I recited this prayer.  Everynight I felt secure.  Everynight I believed that God truly looked down on me at that moment and smiled.  That He...

    Whats The Use??????

    I NEVER in a million years thought I would even get to a place where I just couldn't pray. My life has been NOTHING short of a mess (well at least I think so) and its always been that way (no matter how much I try to run from the past, the past won't leave me alone) I wish I...

    I'm Not A Child Anymore.

    I lost my religious beliefs in my childhood, along with Santa and the tooth fairy. I wonder how people can be adults and be so irrational. There's no-one listening!

    Confusing

    I am one of those people who aren't sure what religion they are. I like to stay as open-minded as I can be about religions, but I have a problem with a few of the stories. Mostly it's the Christian/Catholic faiths that confuse me. Mostly because they seem slightly hypocritical...

    I Used To Pray Every Night

    I guess I started having my doubts about the bible and God in general, but didn't like the thought of doubting, in case I was wrong. (Even though, God shouldn't care if we doubt, after all, we have free will) All my life I prayed every night. I went to church every Sunday when I...

    God Knows

    Prayer always made me uncomfortable, especially those group prayers. Just hearing other people's prayers made me uncomfortable. They just seem too private and personal. I don't care to have anything to do with them.

    Newsflash - Prayer Does Not Work.

    I stopped believing in prayer even when I was a Christian. If god is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent and has a plan for the universe, the physical rules will not break and all the pleading in the world wont do anything to change the course of nature if there is a master...
