I want to say thank you to my friends. Yesterday I was in bad shape physically and emotionally and it up going to the hospital. I am OK. I asked for prayer. I contacted a few people. Today I am 10000% better. Do you believe in the power of prayer?

Talking to God in my own way always help me. I am not won for formal prayers.

I have mix feelings about prayer. I do not think the prayers of other person help you unless you are aware of their prayers. When a person prays or knows others are praying for them it gives them comfort and hope. I think God does not alter fate or events as the result of prayers rather God gives the prayer the strength to accept whatever fate has dealt them, happen.

I don't. But I do believe it works for you. Maybe it's like some sort of karma and you have to be a good person for it to work.

Not at all. No one would be good enough. I pray you find love for you.

If you have the specific prayer request let me know. I'm rather unworthy to pray for others. But I most certainly will pray for you.

One of my favorite quotes:



Who cares if there was really any Being to pray to? What mattered was the sense of giving thanks and praise, the feeling of a humble and grateful heart.

- Oliver Sacks

I think it was low blood sugar. I get vertigo every now and then. But I'm not usually confused so I was a little concerned. I might've got a bit of gluten too. Thank you

Glad you went somewhere but even more that you're feeling so much better.

I don't, but as long as it doesn't interfere with medical care it doesn't hurt.

The churchgoers in South Carolina weren't particularly protected by prayer.

No, but I bet if you asked them hey would tell you about the joy of knowing Jesus. We all die. They are horrible deaths accomplished a great thing. I stood in front of my TV and cheered as that flag was lowered not to be flowing again over the Capitol building.

I can't ask them anything, they're dead. Most people cheered the removal of that disgusting flag.

I know if my death brought about something like that I would rejoice go to it gladly. I have no answer to that evil act. Something is very wrong with so many young people today. They're such a lack up something in them.

It's obviously a complex problem, which certainly isn't helped by our liberal gun culture.

Please be respectful of other people's beliefs. Sort of the golden rule treat others like you would have others treat you.
