This thread could have easily been put in Philosophy and Metaphysics, or Paranormal Studies. If a Mod wants to change it be my guest but I posted it
here because this forum is where most people who might relate to this topic hangs out.
I'm not a religious freak. I don't go to church like I should, I don't carry Jesus saves signs, I don't pray on a regular basis.
We here on ATS are a community. We love together, laugh together, cry together, get mad as Hell together, in our own way. Sometimes some of our
members need help, they need guidance, they need Hope. We don't always know what to say to these peers of ours but we feel for them and what they are
going through just the same.
I propose we do the one thing anyone can do for these people. Pray. This is a call to hard core atheists, agnostics and those that could give a flying
cow patty about religion. This is a call to Muslims and Christians and Other religions who have many differences. It's not about religion. It's not
about who's right or who's wrong. This thread, is about caring for your fellow man.
It doesn't have to be a long prayer. You don't even have to believe in the power of prayer or God or Allah or any higher power. Just for kicks you
know.. even if you feel silly or think it's stupid - Why? Because it just MAY somehow make some kind of crazy difference for the better.
It's just repeating a few simple words. It really doesn't matter what those words are or who they are directed to - just be sure you say them from
your heart. You don't even have to say A-Men.
Just say, " Hey, if There is a higher power, whoever you are, please be with _______ and help them in their time of need"
That's all you have to do. IF there is a higher power He/She/It will hear you. If there somehow are such things however unlikely as it seems as
miracles then that person just may somehow find some hope and you bless your heart, may have helped to make that happen.
What could it hurt? Nothing. Nothing at all. If there is no higher power listening then your two seconds of words won't have hurt anything. I'm not
asking you to do anything that will change your world view. I'm not asking for you to believe anything at all. Just some words that might help
someone in need.
Think about it.
