I don't know where this thought came from today but I saw something where someone was saying, "Please, God."
Are we just so attuned to these comments that they aren't considered prayers at all? "Dear Lord". "My God".
I have never been an overly religious person, I do consider myself to be a good Episcopal and I do go to church on most religious holidays but I have never really thought much of prayer.
Not sure where this thought is going because I usually don't plan on what I am writing about but I was wondering what of the agnostics and atheists. What do they say?
And for the rest of us are we really thinking we are being heard by who ever we pray to? Do we think someone is really going to do something for us that we can not do ourselves? Are we asking because we don't believe we have the ability to fulfill what needs to be done? Are we actually acknowledging a higher “hidden” power that we accept?
Just sitting here thinking about this makes me think this is more about giving ourselves and others the inner power to get things done.
I don't think this is about prayer at all.
I think it is about HOPE for ourselves and others.
Hope is defined as: the general feeling that some desire will be fulfilled.
I am leaving this subject for now but if you could understand any of it then thank God.
Don't ask me why.
