Who’s Praying For Me?

Posted: June 6, 2010 in Uncategorized

I’ve had a few emails from people praying for my salvation. Because I’ve seen prayer work, and not work–at about the same ratio as not praying, it has not been something that makes an impression on me.

However, for many non-religious, there are things that do impress–action and civil responsiveness.

The god Christians pray to is omniscient; he knows the intent of your prayers. So, instead of praying for me, please, please give money to Haiti. Please mobilize your churches with all their money and labor potential and get down to the Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana, and Florida.

The non-Christians have trumped you, posting on fb and writing article about the spill. If you are doing something, it is not getting press.

Show us that you care about others, the land and animals given to you in the book of Genesis.

I really need to see it. I really need to hear about it. I’m losing faith at the same rate we’re losing oil.
