    Carrying forth the idea that came out of the CFS turned my spiritual life, and my church world, upside down discussion.

    thank you

    I am so deeply moved, and feel so wonderfully blessed right in this moment. Thank you Kim. Thank you. Thank your mom and Pops, too. The grace carries on and moves forward and outward and will continue to bless many to come.

    I misread the title of this thread thusly:

    "Sticky prayers for those that are sick"

    For a moment I thought these must be the prayers of little children and it seemed a very good idea, indeed!

    Koan...just when I THINK I'm thinking seriously...you come up with Sticky Prayers!HA!

    Is this where I post my prayer requests? If so..then please pray/meditate for:

    1. John (Husband recovering "nicely" from Pneumonia...but still needs strength.)

    2. Cecile (Mom, 92 and getting a bit frail and wonky and I need her to stick around a while longer, Thank You!)

    3. Mickey (my sis, just finishing up a years worth of Breast Cancer treatments and needs a boost!)

    4. Lost in The Desert (because I already pray for her everyday...just so she'll find a place to settle)

    Thank you all very much. As for the time to pray....I think of/pray for them all the time and randomly...so whenever it's good for you!

    I will pray/meditate for Gracenote, Kim, Fresh-eyes and Dreambirdie at 12:00 Noon each day (hope I'm doing this the correct way?:confused: Hope it's ok to add my family members! I know those on my list may not be "sick"..but they are in need and I know first-hand the tremendous power that is generated by this type of prayer.

    prayer list

    Great idea. Sometimes I just add a generic for all who have this, but it's good to have certain people to remember.

    I would like to add Victoria (Vicky), if it is all right with her. I've been thinking of her all day. She mentioned the possibility of being forced into retirement on disability, and would not be able to pay for needed things on that much money. So I pray for her to find a new way of making money (and lots of it) if this does happen, and that she will get the help she needs medically.

    I'm off to meditate on sticky prayers,

    Kelly

    Actual prayers of children!

    Dear God:
    I didn't think orange went with purple until I saw the sunset you made on Tuesday. That was cool! Eugene

    Dear God:
    Did you mean for the giraffe to look like that or was it an accident? Norma

    Dear God:
    Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones. why don't you just keep the ones you have now? Jane

    Dear God:
    Who draws the lines around the countries? Nan

    Dear God:
    I went to this wedding and they kissed right in church. Is that okay? Neil

    Dear God:
    Thank you for my baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy. Joyce

    Dear God:
    It rained for our whole vacation and is my father mad! He said some things about you that we are not supposed to say, but I hope you will not hurt him anyway.
    Your friend (but I am not going to tell you who I am)

    Dear God:
    Please send me a pony. I never asked for anything before, you can look it up. Bruce

    Dear God:
    I want to be just like daddy when I get big, but not with so much hair all over. Sam

    Dear God:
    I think about you sometimes, even when I'm not praying. Elliott

    Dear God:
    I bet it is very hard for you to love all the people in the world. There are only four people in our family and I can never do it. Dan

    Dear God:
    Of all the people who worked for you, I like Noah and David the best. Rob

    Dear God:
    My brothers told me about being born, but it doesn't sound right. They are just kidding, aren't they? Marsha

    Dear God: If you watch me in church Sunday, I'll show you my new shoes. Mickey

    Dear God:
    We read Thomas Edison made light. But in Sunday School, we learned that you did it. So I bet he stole your idea. Sincerely, Donna

    Dear God: I do not think anybody could be a better God. And, I'm not just saying this because you are God already. Charles

    Dear God: Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had their own rooms. It works with my brother. Larry

    prayer is an act of love

    Prayer is an act of love, words are not needed.
    Even if sickness distracts thoughts, all that is needed is the will to love.

    Hey Kim--

    Could we do a group prayer/meditation together somehow? Like once or twice a week at a specified time... for even 10-15 minutes?

    I'm hoping we can.

    Setting up community prayer times

    YES! 15 minutes at a time sounds like a good way to start.
    Let's just figure out what would work for our different time zones.

    I took a look at the World Clock Meeting Planner
    and it looks like between 1pm and 3pm PST (your time) would be the range that would allow members from the UK and Australia to participate as well. What do you think?

    Wow Kim! You are so efficient, and fast! I am jealous of your brain! :p:p:p

    I think that anywhere btwn 1-3 pm would be fine. I'd pick 2:30 if I had my druthers. (tho no idea what druthers are)

    Maybe we could consider it as DAILY the meditation/prayer minutes, to keep it simple, so anyone anywhere can join in?

    _Kim_ Guest

    Dreambirdie - since you are the one with this great idea, you can have your daily druthers. 2:30 PST it is. I'll edit my first post to put the times up there. We'll see how it goes...
