This is an emotive subject for me. I have stopped praying. I really did have a strong relationship with Jehovah, in that I prayed before every major decision. I now feel this was just like a talisman, giving me confidence to take the next step. I used to pray with my children, I have now stopped, I don't want to influence them to become religious, especially since most of their family are still in. My mother actually had the audacity to say to my daughter, recently that "She love Jehovah more than her parents", I said nothing but it made me so angry.
I don't pray because I don't know if I actually believe there is anyone to pray to. My son who is only 6 keeps asking why god made certain things. I am finding it increasingly hard to answer his questions. I want to say "well god may have created (whatever it is) because ........ or it may have evolved because it has certain characteristics which enabled it to survive in (whatever habitat it lives in".
So may years of WTS programming is really making me feel "dazed and confused" (just put that in for jimmy page).
If I start praying again, the first thing I am going to show my thanks for, is this site and those who take take the time to post here.
