Luckydog76 saidPray? I talk to a higher power. Does that count?
Indeed you can, whatever that higher power is?
I used to go: Dear Father in heaven. I thank you for...........
Then I would ask, too bless those less fortunate than I. and so on.
I humbly say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.
But Now I don't have all that much to ask for, as I need very little.
But now it may be. To the power whom has blessed me: Thanks Mate.
So it's become more of a talk and less of a prayer.
yes religion may teach you to pray. But they also teach intolerance. You don't have to have a religious affiliation to pray; just a faith in something. whatever that may be.
But so many people only pray when they are in trouble, or in need, and not when things are going well.
I have been so blessed over the past 20 years. My life struggle has turned around. I now live a blessed life. For this I say thanks.
