But what I wanted to talk about was prayer.
I know the atheists give all kinds of very interesting reasons for why they don't believe in God ---- but throughout my life I have had very real experience with communicating with God and receiving answers --- even miracles.
So, in more recent years, I've prayed for various things, and I mostly don't even remember everything I pray for. There was this one big thing I prayed for which I vaguely mentioned on this website once I think ---- and now i know that I don't even remember what it was! So who knows.
But there's this other thing I prayed for numerous months ago, and I think it's coming true.
And for the past months I'd been telling God that I'd love to have him do something for me --- but I had no ideas about what exactly he should do. Everything seemed to be going fine for me, and though I was aware that I could ask God for whatever I wanted ---- I had nothing on my mind of exact or extreme need or want. I am well taken care of.
But last night, I thought of something to ask God for someone else. I'm going to keep the details secret, so that the right hand doesn't know what the left had is doing ---- but I've got a prayer going on in my heart and mind now. I actually have a demand to make of God - to help someone else.
I know that God can help. He's done it many times before. I know God can make my wish come true --- and I demand that this comes true. And, what I ask for is actually just something to help someone else --- very little to nothing about my prayer would I consider in any way selfish.
I've prayed selfishly before ----- and God even answers those prayers, even affirmatively, so I believe God should just accept that I'm trying to bless someone else's life now. If he'll do things for me, I hope he'll do something for someone else because I asked for it.
and I KNOW that it's totally possible for God to do this. Such is not unheard of.
So, here's hoping all goes well.
