    I do not pray to a wall. I pray to Jehovah, the God of the Bible. He answers my prayers, especially when I need Him as a deliverer or comforter. Many times though, He does not give me what I ask Him, but He always lets me know that He has heard my prayer.

    Why He allows suffering of humans and animals, my mind and heart is not able to understand. However, I do understand, that I want relief from those that oppress me.

    "And he hath brought upon them their own iniquity, And will cut them off in their own wickedness; Jehovah our God will cut them off". -Psalms 94:23 ASV

    Last time I prayed was about in April this year, just once... and it was to end any possible relationship I could have had with the person I was taught was called Jehovah... I said all I needed to say, all the things I had been too afriad to say over the years, and that was that... it wasn't too difficult as I hadn't prayed for a few years, and before that, most of my prayers were purely procedure and hardly heartfelt.... I had just finished reading an interesting booked called 'Firing God', and without really realising it, that's what I did in that prayer.... funnily enough the next day, I genuinly was 'worried' as if a bolt of lightning would come out of the sky, or some gruesome accident would happen to me.... AND THAT SAYS IT ALL, that's the kind of god I was taught to fear, and I thought, 'who would want to be in a relationship with a person you have to be frightened of forever?'

    I pray to Darren, King of the Fish People.

    He is the true God, as shown by this manuscript.

    And if you are thinking "that is made up", then simply read this other manuscript that proves it isn't.

    Most of the time Darren does not answer my prayers, but I know he hears them.

    Sometimes he does though.

    Why, the other month I had no money, and I prayed "O Darren, King of all the Fish people, please give me money for sustenance and that new PlayStation game I want to pre-order" and THE VERY NEXT DAY I received in my bank account a sum of money that was not only enough to cover these things, it was also the EXACT same amount as my employer pays me each month in wages.

    Recently I saw a cartoon of a little boy riding a bicycle. The little boy exclaimed, "I thought about asking in prayer for a bicycle but realized God didn't work that way. So I stole this one and asked God for forgiveness, in prayer of course."

    Like so much else, knowing how the system works is often the ticket to getting there.

    When I prayed, I prayed to jehober. When I finally realized that jehober (and all other gods) were invented by man, I stopped praying. Now when I talk to myself (which is what praying really is), at least I can get an answer. However, if praying makes one feel better, I say keep praying.

    just saying!

    I also saw a cartoon showing the parted red sea, and Moses walking towards it having a solemn expression on his face as he moved forward, and a goofy, smiling, child's, inflatable life preserver around his neck, and a crowd of people following, but no one that was following him was wearing one. -Funny

    People think that they know; They think that they will not have to pay; A thief will ride until he is stopped, then he prays.- And pays.

    Could anybody explain the difference between praying and other everyday superstitions?

    I pray to the G-d of my ancestors. But I promise you, I ain't praying to the Watchtower's "Jehovah," I can tell you that - Caleb

    Talking to one imaginary friend is much like any other.
