I'm hoping we can keep this all civil like and not get it knocked over to P&R.
With all the things going on in our personal lives and the world around us, there seems to be an abundance of prayer going around.
Why is it people pray? Do they pray for something? Do they pray to someone/thing?
I 'pray' as a grounding mechanisim. To center and focus myself on doing what I need to do.
I 'pray' a modified version of the Serenity Prayer. I leave off the "God" part. If there is a God person, entity, or energy I don't pretend to know what is better than he, she, it, they do/es for the world and my role in it.
... and the wisdom to know the difference.
