Praying

Despite the fact that I'm not overly religious and tend to trend more on the spiritual side of things, I have to say that one of my Happiness Project resolutions for Eternity this month is to pray more.  I like to pray in my car on the way to work and I can't describe it except that it fills me with a sense of peace.  A deep peace that goes down way deep inside.

I forget who said it, but I heard recently someone say or mention the following quote, "Imagine if you woke up tomorrow with only what you thanked God for today."  So instead of only asking God to help me sell my house (I'm sure He's up to date on his real estate license anyway) and help me get a parking spot, I've been trying to thank Him and show gratitude for the multiple blessings in my life.

I like praying.  It gives me a form of comfort in a world that is really uncertain.

How do you pray?

Sometimes all it takes is a small moment ... I wrote post once called Popcorn Prayers because they are just little moments of conversation with God in the car, or in the shower ... anytime a thought 'pops' into your head ;)

Wow I guess a lot of us would only forget to say thank you once if it really worked that way... makes you think. Thanks for that

I'm trying to get beyond pleading these days.
