I am not a religious person but I don't know what else to do regarding this latest tragedy in New York. We all need to pray that these people can get through all this. I fell so helpless. A special prayer for those rescuers that with this new tragedy have way too much on their plate for one lifetime. Oh my gosh I want to cry.

Quote from Ari RN
Are we all praying today or have we forgotten?
Why is it that when destruction occurs everyone looks for God, but as time passes we all forget?
I guess I rather resent being grouped in with the "all" who don't pray.
Prayer is intensely personal. People certainly may be praying anytime, anywhere. Whether someone else can tell is totally irrelevant. Ditto for whether it takes place where we can all see it....
As to the answer to the question posed in #5, it can be found in any basic psychology text, if documentation is desired. Otherwise, it's a matter of understanding human nature and the need to get on with life.
