30 thoughts on “Let Me Ask You a Question – 10/2/18

  1. Some prayer does work, not in the sense of “Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?” [Janice Joplin}, but in the sense of focusing intentions and seeking our own growth and insight, and calming and centering from worldly distractions and anxieties. I think it is not about how a prayer affects God (or, whomever), but the difference it makes in the one praying.

  2. Prayer may not always get me the result I want for but it works to ease my worried mind. Some for, yes prayer works. For anyone else, I have no idea.

      1. I’m not sure what you’d call it. I just have conversations with….something….in my head or even out loud, at times. Sometimes I plead, sometimes I yell, sometimes I thank. To whom? Not sure. 🤔

  3. Yes I do believe in the power of prayer. It really does work. However, often times we pray for the same thing over and over and nothing happens. Almost as if god isn’t listening. The truth is god listens and he does answer but not always on our time or in the way we want him to answer. That’s when things get hard. We begin to feel prayers don’t work. I have gotten to that point many times. Heck I’m there right now but I continue to pray and hope for the best.

  4. I don’t know if it is “prayer” that works or if it is the power of finely tuned and focused thought especially if many people are praying for some shared cause. But for some reason it seems to me that prayer does work. Not every time or all the time but sometimes it does.

  5. Absolutely! I have seen so many answers to prayer that I can not count all of them. Every day I see answers to prayer. Sometimes it someone getting healed, an accident avoided, seeing someone’s depression lifting, money enough for some extras etc.

  6. I believe prayer works. I may not always receive the answer for which I desire, but I do, however, receive the answer that is best for my situation. Also, the main benefit is that it redirects my attention to God and my relationship with Him.

  7. Absolutely!!! You may not always get the answer to you’re praying for, but every prayer is answered. I have seen so much good from prayer. I pray daily. I’ve seen some of the previous comments on prayer v meditation. I look at as prayer is you speaking to God and meditation is God is speaking to you.
