    Prayer is for everyone.

    Outloud

    I pray all the time silently to myself.  I cannot bring myself to pray outloud in front of others.  I am sure this stems from being chastized as a child for chosing a different religon than my father.

    By forgiving. Forgiving is like letting someone put you through hell but let them get away. I need to learn how to forgive; honestly.

    Please pray for those who reject God, His word, and His followers. they're drowning so far in their selfishness, ignorance, and sin that they don't realize they need a Savior.
