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.
