I took a mindfulness meditation class a few years ago and it was life changing. I highly recommend looking into it! But I'm not religious, and I see prayer and meditation as completely unrelated.

L1B3RTAR1AN Virginia
07/25/15 11:22 am

07/25/15 12:22 pm

Believing in God isn't like a trade agreement: I'll continue to pray to you (and believe in you) if you save this person. That's not how God is or how he works. Praying is showing you have faith in Him. If the person dies, then we move on with life.

Here's my explanation outside of the bible. I can't explain it here (would take too long) but here's something you can google: Blood Moon Tetrads & 9 Harbingers. On the blood moon tetrads, look at the historic events that happen during a tetrad.

L1B3RTAR1AN Virginia
07/25/15 8:25 pm

Ok so I looked up this blood moon theory. So basically this sequence of blood moons have happened 7 times since the coming of Christ totaling to 44 blood moons. Each of these blood moons have been attributed to a historical event or Jewish holiday.

L1B3RTAR1AN Virginia
07/25/15 8:26 pm

Most of them are Jewish holidays like Yom Kippur, Passover, and the feast of the tabernacle. The later two are multi day events. The historical events are completely random, having no connection to each other...

L1B3RTAR1AN Virginia
07/25/15 8:27 pm

....everything from Pope Leo coming to power to the Spanish Inquisition.
It is fairly obvious that religious historians took the dates and found the most important event that happened in the planet at that time.

L1B3RTAR1AN Virginia
07/25/15 8:27 pm

This all comes from two lines in the bible that simply say "when the moon turns into blood there will be a horrible event". It's all cherrypicked and it's all fallacious.

Prayer really isn't a waste. It allows an individual to learn about his needs, wants, fears, desires, and struggles. Whether he gains outside help or inside change may be debatable, but something does happen. It's proven. And what's the difference?

We already know what our needs, desires, fears, and struggles are. We don't need to pray to find that out. I mean, you have to be able to know what those things are in the first place in order to pray about them. Prayer doesn't help you learn that.

@vayl, I disagree. At times in our lives, we are so preoccupied with random stuff that we lose sight of what is important to us. Taking time to reflect on that, reveals things that we may not have considered or forgotten.

Then literally all you have to do is exactly what you said -- take time to reflect on that. You don't need to pray to do that. Now you're saying that prayer is just a complicated way of doing something we can already do without it.

....You do know that prayer is just a form of meditation, right? The only difference is that there is someone else/ the thought of someone else answering the other half of the conversation. Prayer is encouraged meditation because someone is listening

Of course, only yourself and your thoughts are listening, unless you're in like a church saying a group prayer.

Prayer is nothing like meditation. At least, not a typical Christian prayer, in which the person gets on their knees and clasps their hands together, then takes a minute to ask something. Meditation involves releasing tension and entering a state...

...of deep relaxation for extended lengths of time. It is very different from prayer.

@Think, you really can't claim that no one is listening. You may not believe in a higher power for whatever reason, but that doesn't mean one doesn't exist. And those who pray to one definitely believe in the existence of one. Don't be so ignorant.

@Vayl, there really isn't a "typical Christian prayer" There are many types of prayer, and while some of them are quick, pre made, and not very meditative, they serve the same reflective, calming purpose. And most prayer is deep and meditative.

Not even irregularly. Sometimes I tell people I'm meditating or ruminating, but really I'm zoned out, taking a nap without actually falling asleep.
