No I won't pray in the name of your god or any god for that matter as I don't believe in such superstitious nonsense but my heart does go out to those who've lost a loved one. Nothing could be worse than a parent losing a child.
And since your god is supposedly omnipotent and didn't do anything to stop this event why would praying to it make any difference at all? It's obviously a totally callous and uncaring god to let such things happen in the first place. Religious people are so deluded.
So we have free will but praying to him will do what? He doesn't intervene does he according to you. So what's the point of prayer. And the whole we were created by god to love and worship him. What a load of rubbish....the creator of the universe is really that vain and narcissistic it created humans purely so we'd love and worship him!! LOL
So what do you lose by praying for the children?
What do you gain? I don't need some mythical being to pray to in order to feel empathy and sympathy for those involved.
Your god doesn't intervene in a situation where he could save the lived of completely innocent children yet you claim to then believe he would intervene to help the families of the murdered children. Why else would you pray for them? This seems utterly ridiculous to me. He is aloof and uncaring whilst the children are slaughtered but due to your prayers he is going to assist the grieving families? Seems so completely and utterly ridiculous to me. I can't believe you can't see how ridiculous it is.
You have met the Lord?? LOL
Now I just know that you're insane!! LOL
You do realise that the only reason you're a christian is because of where you were born? If you had have been born in Saudi Arabia you would more than likely be following Muhammad instead of Jesus? Or if you'd been born in Tibet it would be Buddha not Jesus you'd believe in. This is the ridiculous thing about you theists. You convince yourselves of your own beliefs. You all think you've got it right but of course you've all got it completely wrong. To still believe in ancient myths about gods is beyond stupidity in the 21st century. It beggars belief that people can still be so credulous and gullible. There is no god. Not yours nor any of the thousands of others that have been worshipped by the ignorant throughout history. You're completely deluded.
I can discount the healing unless you can prove it. Faith healing on the whole has been shown time and time again to be nothing but charlartanism. Don't try and tell me that you actually truly remember being 3 years old and remember everything perfectly. At that age you only really remember what you have been told. And like any myth it can take on a life of it's own well after the telling.
What is wrong with you people??? 20 kids were just murdered and all you can think of is defending your right to be a$$holes. Carry on, ....I shall pray for the families and for the first responders who had to deal with the carnage.
Yes, I will.
The people saying no would rather put their own beliefs before the children. Assume God does exist, assume Heaven exists, would you rather the children not receive prayers to get there?
Assume you pray and Heaven doesn't exist, what do you lose? Some time? Oh dear, as if that is never wasted on something useless.
I will most surely keep them in my heart
Yes. I've prayed many times already and will continue to. (((((((hug)))))))
No, but I will be thinking about them and their families and how completely senseless this tragedy is. However, I do respect your right to do so and I appreciate your compassion.
I will because it's a real tragedy.
so just forget about the children dying over seas by our own government?
why dont you go away?
I have and shall do so again as I am sure I will be reminded of this tragedy again in the coming days.
I will pray to God/dess/Universe whatever power is higher than me. So awful.
Yes, in the name of our Lord Jesus may they find healing and peace through His love and grace. I live in a religious community and we pray for them and will continue to do so before the Blessed Sacrament.
Where was your Jesus a minute before all those people died?
