  • I just wish those that use the excuses, "....immo wait on God to drop it in my lap" or ".....just pray..." would just stop using these code words and phrases and just be HONEST. Just be HONEST and say they "don't care" and "don't plan on doing ANYTHING" that they have the wherewithal to do and get out of the way and in front of the news camera of those that WANT to do something!

    "God helps those who helps themselves" is not in the bible.

    How did my praying for God's help turn into me just sitting around. When I pray I get down on my knees. I'm getting older and my knees have started to hurt so I have to get a cusion to knell on. There is nothing lazy about prayer.

    Do you really expect me to answer questions about death and sickness? Am I coming off like I think I know everything? Nothing in the bible told me not to take my chidren to the hospital when they were sick.

    Like you, I live my life as best as I can. I've learned to just pray that whatever I do "even the wrong" works out for the best. I pray for myself and I pray for others. I don't have all the answers that is why I pray. I don't understand the "whys" in life. I pray.
