just to make it today

A big thank you to MC Hammer for the subject of this post. Anyway . . .

I've lived with an aversion for the practices of formalized religion-evangelism, baptism or other ritual, prayer-for as long as I can remember. Over the last year or so, I've been warming to the idea of prayer, viewing it as a form of meditation that helps me feel more at peace and connected with the creative force.

Yet, I still have a hard time telling anyone that I pray. I usually hide behind the lie of omission, "you're in my thoughts" but this is starting to feel like I'm not being true to myself.

Hi, my name is Stewart, and I pray.

That wasn't so hard. I look forward to my prayers becoming more intense as I grow spiritually.

Okay, that's about all I can write. I still feel like poo (I stayed home from work yesterday), and I have a client in ten minutes.

Tim Horton. seriously . . .

no one in particular, the creative force of the universe. I challenge myself to not think "him" all the time.

That makes me so happy to read. Yay for prayer. I'm a firm believer in the power of prayer and pray regularly throughout the day and night. :)

Even though I was very active in church in high school, and my brother is a minister, I don't feel a need for prayer. And besides that it doesn't seem to work for me.

Although, there have been several scientific studies that show it does.
Hmmm
