    Sorry, its religious, but it makes a good point, also sorry if in the wrong forum.


    The Christian’s Prayer
    “Father, I have a problem. It’s weighing heavy on me. It’s all I can think
    about, night and day.

    “But before I bring it to you in prayer, I suppose I should pray for
    those who are less fortunate than me—those in this world who have
    hardly enough food for this day, and those who don’t have a roof over
    their heads at night. I also pray for families who have lost loved ones in
    sudden death, for parents whose children have leukemia, for the many
    people who are dying of brain tumors, for the hundreds of thousands
    who are laid waste with other terrible cancers, for people whose bodies
    have been suddenly shattered in car wrecks, for those who are lying in
    hospitals with agonizing burns over their bodies, whose faces have been
    burned beyond recognition.

    “I pray for people with emphysema, whose eyes fill with terror as they
    struggle for every breath merely to live, for those who are tormented beyond
    words by irrational fears, for the elderly who are wracked with the
    pains of aging, whose only ‘escape’ is death.

    “I pray for people who are watching their loved ones fade before their
    eyes through the grief of Alzheimer’s disease, for the many thousands
    who are suffering the agony of AIDS, for those who are in such despair
    that they are about to commit suicide, for people who are tormented by
    the demons of alcoholism and drug addiction.

    “I pray for children who have been abandoned by their parents, for
    those who are sexually abused, for wives held in quiet despair, beaten and
    abused by cruel and drunken husbands, for people whose minds have
    been destroyed by mental disorders, for those who have lost everything in
    floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes.

    “I pray for the blind, who never see the faces of the ones they love or
    the beauty of a sunrise, for those whose bodies are horribly deformed by
    painful arthritis, for the many whose lives will be taken from them today
    by murderers, for those wasting away on their deathbeds in hospitals.

    “Most of all, I cry out for the millions who don’t know the forgiveness
    that is in Jesus Christ . . . for those who in a moment of time will be
    swept into hell by the cold hand of death, and find to their utter horror
    the unspeakable vengeance of eternal fire. They will be eternally damned
    to everlasting punishment. O God, I pray for them.

    “Now, for my problem . . . Strange. I can’t seem to remember what it
    was.

    “In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

    :smile: yep, wrong forum. The soap box is for topics or thoughts that we can discuss and offer our thoughts about, general topics for discussion.:smile:

    Maybe this is a positive message

    Sorry Blake, but everything religious ends up here, cos the mods don't want to upset anyone or something..? I think that was the reason anyway... :mellow:

    So you care more about people who don't share your beliefs then about people who are suffering from Aids? Ah well, that's religion for you I guess.

    sorry, i didnt post it for the religious part, but just because we all can get caught up in our problems we seem to forget how worse off someone else is. thats what i was hoping to convey by posting this.

    Yes, a while back some people were saying that religious things were triggering to them, so it was decided to have them all moved to the soap box and has to be warned on the subject that it is religious.

    I think Soap Box was the right place to put this as all discussions/topics of a religious nature go in Soap Box forum.

    Your god obviously doesnt give a fuck about me or any one else. Actually I know your disgusting god doesnt exist. Talking to some invisible man isnt going to do shit to help you.

    Zohmygob - while that may be your opinion, it clearly isn't the opinion of the original poster.

    Debate is fine, but your post wasn't debate - it was an insult. If you don't agree with what has been said fine - you don't need to post.
    There is no point in potentially hurting the member(s) who have posted just because you don't agree with their views.
