    Waste Of Time

    I, personally, don't understand the act of praying beyond the definition of the act. Almost nothing about it makes any sense. First, and foremost, I am agnostic theist. In layman's terms, I do not know of the existence of a higher power, but I believe there is at least one. In my...

    What's to Understand?

    When it comes to prayer, you either do it or you don't. It is all based upon your belief system. I am not talking about 911 praying where you promise not to do something again if God will just get you out of this one thing either. In my belief system I pray for God's will, not...

    I Think It's A Mental Thing...

    I don't actually think that prayer works in the way most people would think it to. If there is a God, I don't believe that by praying you are actually talking to him/her. I believe that by praying you are convincing yourself over and over again that you believe that there is a...

    Encouragement For You Who Doubt That God Is Attentive To Your Prayer

    God is very mindful and interested in how you feel, think, and what you say to Him. He loves us so deeply, like a father and friend. I will share a very personal and special moment that has changed my prayer life/thought forever. (Mind you, I have always questioned if my prayers...

    Are All Prayers Answered?

    I've heard this phrase several times, in several different ways, but I wanted to hear some of the peanut gallery's thoughts on it: "God answers all prayers. Sometimes the answer is just "No"." [Ex] You pray for a new car. A Pinto Hatchback enters your...
