Amen Carol!! I don't tell anyone if they can or cannot pray. Nor would I tell anyone to believe or disbelieve. I would hope that others would show me the same courtesy! As for me, I believe in the supreme being and that they make all happen for a reason. If someone doesn't okay, but in MY opinion (for what it's worth)they will have to answer for it in the great beyond! Don't ever give up your rights, freedoms and beliefs no matter what they are! They are the thread that holds your inner being together! Happy 2009 everyone! Natalie

I agree with all comments except one. Sometimes the person protesting others prayers are the ones that need it the most. They don't need to be told, they don't need to hear them, but they are blessed with whatever is being prayed for.

Thank you Carol! I don't know what it's all about-but I think I get it after reading all the posts. This is a place to support people-not matter what their beliefs. If someone doesn't like prayer, that's ok-just don't be disrespectful to people who do. I too am tired of all the hype about where and when we can and can't pray. OK-but if someone here needs some support and it comes in the form of prayer, then I'm going to do it. If someone doesn't like it, then go find another thread that you feel comfortable with. Come back and visit us when you can be civil and at least have something nice to say. Keepin' the faith...Dawn BTW WISETERRI-that was a beautiful story. Thanks

I am new here and was just looking things over before I introduced myself. I could not have had a better welcome. I am a Christian. I believe in prayers and miracles. I am totally fed up with being told I can't pray. With all that is going on in the world, prayer is the only thing we have left. Anytime anybody wants a prayer, just ask. I will most certainly pray for you.

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of him" (1 John 5:14-15).

How True! It seems NO ONE remembers the reason for the season. I heard Pat Robertson say on the 700 club..... All the decorations and trees and stuff are fine and quite frankly, Beautiful, However let us not forget why we have the seasom. The birth of Jesus. It's not the presents that you buy or worrying if you spent enough on the gift and so forth that should matter. Giving your love your friendship a listening ear (like our dear friends on Spark) showing that you really do care. Just being there for someone can be a great gift in itself. So take time to be there for that friend or neighbor or go to the nursing home and listen to somebodys Granny tell a story.
I myself plan to take CHLOE to the nursing home to visit with the elderly. They Love that stuff.
Everybody take time to slow down remember to BREATHE and remember Jesus is the reason for the season!
Merry Christmas

And along those lines - From one of my other Teams....

A woman was out Christmas shopping with her two children. After many hours of looking at row after row of toys and everything else imaginable; and after hours of hearing both her children asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two kids.

She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday season time of the year - overwhelming pressure to go to every party, every housewarming, taste all the holiday food and treats, getting that perfect gift for every single person on our shopping list, making sure we don't forget anyone on our card list, and the pressure of making sure we respond to everyone who sent us a card.

Finally the elevator doors opened, and there was already a crowd in the car. She pushed her way into the car and dragged her two kids in with her and all the bags of stuff. When the doors closed, she couldn't take it anymore and she stated, "Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be found, strung up and shot."

From the back of the car, everyone heard a quiet, calm voice respond, "Don't worry, we already crucified Him."

For the rest of the trip down in the elevator, it was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop. This year, don't forget to keep "the One who started this whole Christmas thing" in your every thought, deed, purchase and words. If we all did it, just think of how different this whole world would be.


"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

I agree with you all here! I believe in the power of prayer and like someone said in todays economy it doesn't cost anything to pray, and I give prayer freely. For what ever reasons we all need help from time to time and if I or someone else asks for you to pray, I hope that you will. If you choose not to OK, but don't put us down or make us feel bad for needing a little encouragement from the others. Just knowing we have such a wonderful support system is what keeps people coming back day after day and keeps us motivated. Thats why we are a family of sorts and are to help! Thank you Carol for posting this, you are a wonderful person, God Bless and Merry Christmas everyone!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I get so frustrated when we have to second guess whether we have the right to comfort someone when they are in need. I believe in a loving, compassionate God that would offer support to those in need. I understand that not everyone believes in Him and that is their right. As everyone else is stating, we live in a free country and you can believe as you chose to believe! I think it is sad when people forget the very basis the what the United States was founded on-that is the right to practice any religion (or no religion) that you chose. It is written in all of the early documents. The Revolutionary war and the Civil wars as well as the other wars were fought so that we can remain free. I get so tired of having the minority complain and the majority has to follow simply because we may hurt someone's feelings. Its about time the majority stands up! If they don't want to pray, so be it. At least send some good thoughts and a hug. Don't be hating on us because we pray to our God for understanding!

Ok. I'll get down off my soap box...

What a wonderful post Carol. I for one am very sick and tired of people trying to make others quit having 10 Commandments, prayers,and talking about religion or God in public places. I think they forget that this country was founded on the 10 Commandments (all of our laws were based on them). Many people came over here to have freedom of religion.
I personally think if these people have a problem with this, they should go somewhere else to live.

Thank you Carol!

This is one of the things that pulls this team together, is supporting each other through times of difficulty, and one of the reasons that this team is so important to each of us!

Thanks again, and I agree 100%!

I would like to thank you Carol for your post as I feel it is timely and most appropriate.

All members should be mindful to treat each other with respect as we all have the right to our opinions whether we agree or not.

As adults there is no excuse for poor behaviour and if it does continue then I agree with Carol, steps should be taken to rectify the situation. If that includes ultimately removing a member, then that is the consequence of unacceptable behaviour.

Re: Praying, although I see the person has their point of view as does each member of the team.

If members choose to pray for one another through a difficult time in their life, then members should have the ability to do so, to help each other through prayer.

If the other member feels so uncomfortable then there is the option of perhaps joining a team more suitable to their beliefs!

Some times the only help we can give is prayers!!
And I will give them freely!!

I am so worth this!!
Nothing tastes as good as thinner feels!!
I do random acts of kindness.

WELL SAID INDEED CAROL!!!!!

Too few people are willing to admit that they take the time to pray for themselves as well as others. Nobody on this team asks for prayers unless they feel that they need the extra help.

If you feel unable to say a pray for someone in need, then perhaps you can just send positive vibes their way instead. That too helps!

I don't know any specifics about what you are talking about, but thank you for not only taking a stand, but taking the stand that you did.

Standing firm for one's convictions has become a rarity in today's culture. I'm pleased to see that some of us still have some courage.

AS A TEAM WE ALL OFFER OUR THOUGHTS,PRAYERS AND GOOD WISHES TO THOSE WHO NEED THEM, IT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT WE HAVE A MEMBER HERE ON THE TEAM THAT FEELS IF WE WANT TO PRAY THEN WE SHOULD GO TO A RELIGIOUS TEAM AND PRAY THERE, WELL THAT IS NOT THE ONLY PLACE THAT YOU PRAY. AND I AM HERE AS A DOG LOVERS LEADER TO STATE THE FACTS THAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THOSE WHO NEED IT OR REQUEST IT, AS IS OUR CHOICE, IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEND YOUR PRAYER OR GOOD THOUGHTS, OR GOOD WISHES, THEN SO BE IT BUT DO NOT TRY TO TELL THE REST OF THE TEAM THAT THEY CANNOT DO THIS. AS IT IS A FREE COUNTRY THAT WE LIVE IN AND WE ALL HAVE THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH. AND PRAYING IS A FREEDOM THAT WAS HARD FOUGHT FOR AND THAT WE FEEL WE CAN DO AS WE WANT TO. I AM SORRY THAT THE ONE TEAM MEMBER FEELS THAT THEY SHOULD TELL THE WHOLE TEAM WHAT CAN AND CANNOT BE DONE, BUT WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS HERE ON THE TEAM, WE ARE HERE FOR EACH OTHER, THROUGH BAD TIMES AND GOOD AND WE ARE A FAMILY AND FAMILIES TAKE CARE OF ONE ANOTHER. AND WE SHALL NOT ALLOW ANY NAME CALLING HERE ON THE TEAM EITHER, IF I SEE ANY TYPE OF THIS I WILL REPORT IT TO SPARK AND WORK ON HAVING THAT PERSON REMOVED FROM THE SPARK PEOPLE SIGHT, THIS IS NOT A PLACE TO BE PETTY AND TO CALL ONE ANOTHER NAMES SO LET US REMEMBER THIS IN ALL THE POSTS THAT ARE MADE HERE. AND REMEMBER THIS IS WORDS, AND WORDS CAN BE HURTFUL TO SOME AND EVEN MORE HURTFUL TO OTHERS. SO KEEP THESE THOUGHTS IN MIND AND EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT DAY.
