Apologies and other requests
« on: October 01, 2017, 03:02:57 am »
Firstly, my apologies for rarely writing prayers on this forum; since I check here mostly as escape I'm rarely in the right head space when reading  ::) Will try to do better in future, or at least to remember the requests when praying.

For those called to prayer, these sites may be of interest:

https://www.opendoorsusa.org/take-action/pray/

God bless you all.

Thank you.

And the Prayer Requests aren't so much for forum members to write prayers on the forum per se as they are notices that something is going on in the lives of other forum members/the world at large for which someone might appreciate remembrance in people's prayers/meditations/good thoughts/etc.

I figure for everyone who comments to a prayer request thread saying that they're praying/sending good thoughts/whatever, there are a fair few others who are just doing their thing without worrying about/remembering to write a comment.  (Not saying that I doubt the sincerity of people posting comments to the prayer request threads, BTW; just saying that I know we have some lurkers and infrequent comment-posters around the forum who might very well be praying/sending thoughts or intentions/whatever even if they don't specifically say so, which is actually a good bit of the point of having the Prayer Requests section.)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
