So what makes anyone think he’s going to answer one of theirs? Especially when you ask it on the Internet!
There are quite a few prayers on the site already, but not all of them are serious. Here’s a few snippets:
I thank you God for letting me live in a time and place when I can safely say: thank you for not existing.
and this from a broken childhood:
Thank you God for birthing me to an abusive father. … Thank you God of ridding me of God.
and the one from the PR guy:
I have one word for you, dude: Vision. …
Firstly, your PR guys are bad for your image.
Secondly, cut the hair and lose the beard.
Thirdly, the crucifix thing died when Madonna set them on fire for Pepsi. I’m thinking we go for a octagon in a nice shade of fuchsia.
I do consultancy works for $1800 an hour . No personal cheques, I don’t care who you are.
But there are also some very serious ones. There are always going to be people with some sort of personal problem, and it’s often hard to know who or where to turn to for help. If nothing else, writing down your thoughts, fears, or misgivings can be quite cathartic, and just occasionally someone may provide some comfort or assistance.
So, whilst I am quite positive god (of any variety) is not going to answer any of these prayers, some kind person might.
Which leads me to a quandary. Are these sorts of web sites, and there’s quite a few of them purporting to be providing a direct link to god(s), a good or a bad thing? Surely if someone provides help that’s a good thing, but is it just perpetuating the myth(s) even more? Could it lead to troubling the person even more?
