When someone says they’ll keep you or someone close to you in their prayers you would expect them to do just that, right? We just found out that my Uncle George has Stage 4 liver cancer and someone in my immediate family commented on my cousin’s facebook that they will keep them in their prayers. Okay fine. The only problem is that this person doesn’t believe in God and hasn’t said a prayer a day in their lives. Am I the only one that takes issue with this? Maybe. I never say I’ll keep someone in my prayers because I don’t pray but I will say that I will keep them in my thoughts. That doesn’t make me better. Just different. I say what I mean and I mean what I say.
I’ll admit – – I do like the Serenity prayer though.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage
to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
