If you can believe in the power of prayer for the person then then why not for others. With that open mind you must be able to see that:
1. That if that person can believe and has faith strong enough to heal themselves then why not for others?
2. It is comforting to know that some one else cares enough to speak to their most high on your behalf, is that not a healing aspect therefore they are in effect healing or helping? If not by being a comfort alone? Having any part no matter how minute of that person's well being does not seem to be useless.
What is useless is someone who claims to be one thing and is another.Usually a person with an open mind "tries to see all sides" that's what open mind means. Funny, for a person that has a closed mind, I am explaining to a person who has an open mind What an open mind is. Is it not. Oh, wise one. Which by the way is another aspect of having an open mind.
Open mouth , insert foot comes to mind.
Whether it is useless or not I will pray for all who needs and wants it. Jesus did and it is still working today. Talk about power, talk about an open mind or closed one, however you want to look at it.
May you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Properous New Year, and if that offends you thenI'll say have a Merry Merry and a Happy Happy , and not tough shite. May God Bless
And now STOP!! Sit back. Inhale deep and exhale slow. Let go of all your negative energy towards me. I am not joking here. I am dead serious. You all sound very hostile. Maybe it helps when i tell you i have many friends who practice very different religions. They all became very loyal trustworthy friends once they understood my statement. I am NOT a preacher. Every one of them is still practicing their religion the way the did before they met me. This is my way of telling you that i don't put my energy in religion. I fill the void in my heart with the goodness en warmth of people.
I seems to me that no one really understands what i am writing. I showed my respect to you and your god. I even apologized for using the word "s**t". Still you try to convince me of something unreal. What do you want me to say?
in response to nickerbockers... I know that this might not be much and that some of it might be late getting there but here is all that I can do to help:
I hope everyone gets a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. For those who are offened instead of saying tough i'll say, "I hope you a Merry Merry and Happy Happy."
It saddens my heart to hear that anyone thinks prayer is useless, and I feel that there must be a great void in the heart of any individual that feels this way. Now with that being said, I will end this message with one final statement. I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU
in response to nini3... I'm always glad to help and I do get pleasure from being of help. I think that my outlook comes from being, in my mind, from the bottom of the barrel. It's like they say,"all you got is looking up" don't know who came up with that but they were right.I do thank you for the very fine and kind words though.
Even the snail thinks(purely in my imagination)He's going as fast as he can in fact he might be going super fast. To look from the other side.
Yes, it's best to get your rest, supposedly, that's the time that your body repairs it's self the most, I think that's the only time it gets to.
Well, we have been conditioned to get presents for Christmas. I know you were expecting me to say,"to give and receive." but that is only particially right. We were taught to give..... AND receive. To expect something in return when we are kind and giving. We weren't taught to give, period.
My point is that we expect to give presents and to receive presents, and that is to say, receive presents guilt free.
If you can do some crats and give them ont they will mean much more(unless it's something that person really really wanted and couldn't afford).
One Christmas I was feeling that way, didn't have anythingbut the landlord was remoldeling soe of his places and he had scraps of wood and molding laying around. I asked if I could have it and he let me. I took it, cut it in Several pieces, glued the sides toether put them on a square block of wood, heated a rod to burn their iniatials into them and gave them as candle holders.
Here's a 'trick' that may help with the headaches, neckaches, etc. Take a towel, hand towel or a worn thin toel, put it around your neck, hold both corners or far ends in your hands, pull upat a 90 degree angle to your chin and roll your neck around i it's out of plces or needs poped, this will do the trick.
You might have to go down to the office and bug them both the state and the hospital.If you have to be a little rude, or I guess persistant.
You , yourself, share your wisdom and expeience which helps those you share with. Your warmth, compassion and understanding comes through your postings and I look forward to reading more of them.
May you have a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year, may God Bless
You can explain yourself much better then i will ever be able to. True aging my cynicism only get worse. Still i do respect people for who they are. We are all products of our experiences and the culture that surrounds us. I noticed that here in Europe we are more open minded then the rest of the world. I am proud of that. Being open minded doesn't mean there is no respect. Contrary!
If you ask a friend if your bottom looks fat in that new dress and she tells you it doesn't very well knowing it does but she doesn't want to hurt your feelings. Is she a best friend?
I have many people on this site ask me to pray for them, and many of those people are in need. You have a right to your opinion, but it will not stop me from praying or believing in the power that's comes from talking to God.
Everyone has needs, and everyone deals with those needs in their own way. I will continue to PRAY
