Pray for New Yorkers

  1. 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.

    I've been close to crying everytime I stop and think about it. It's too much for any community to endure. I'm sorry that they are going through another major trajedy....and right before the holidays.

    It's just so sad.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to them also. I can barely watch this on television. It is all so surreal. I do hope they will get through this

    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?

    No one is forgetting.........I pray all the time. For world peace. For our President and those in authority.For our families. I have found most who do pray, pray with consistency and have deep faith that extends WAY beyond the walls of any church, temple or synagogue. Our prayers are heard and answered in ways we may not understand, but faith is what leads us to accept what answers we do get. Not everyone is a Sunday-only believer.

    An excellent example of this is post-911 TV shows. They now bare all, enact all, swear all, you name it, they do it. Our country has become a filthy cesspool in the entertainment field.

    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.

    I don't pray, and refuse to be put down for not believing in a myth.

    Then why do you insist on trying to poke a hole in people's faith by calling it a "Myth?"
