Hello to everyone here on DDO. This forum thread is meant for anyone and everyone. Even if your an atheist or have a different religious belief, I wanted to take this time and ask if ANYONE would like me to pray for you?? Anything specific or simple is fine.. I'm willing to pray for anybody's concerns. I care about everyone here and would like to pray for each of you for whatever you would like me to pray for. (Note, if your just gonna joke around or something, with all do respect I'd ask that you don't leave a comment if that's all your gonna do... This thread is meant for prayer requests.) And FYI, I will be leaving my prayers here on this thread concerning anyone's situations or needs of prayers. (I may take a bit to respond, but I can promise that I'll get to it.) looking forward to this. :)

Tulip aka Sola Gratia :)

Can you ask God to tell the Buddha to call me back, I accidentally hung up, and he called on an "unknown" number.

Is this a serious request?? Because it looks like a joke and sarcasm and I asked specifically for none of that.. If this a joke or sarcasm, tts pretty messed up since I'm taking time outta my life to do this for people I hardly know. My heart is to serve others and if that means to pray for others that's what I'm gonna do. So please, if you have a serious request let me know. Thank you. :)

Well I thought it was serious, but now you mention it, I may have hit my head? Or maybe the unknown number was a prank caller. Maybe I was asleep. Maybe I got lost in my own imagination.

Can pray for the osmometer at my work to calibrate properly each time we use it next week? Because if you can pull that miracle of miracles off, I will become a believer.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

You'll have to tell us where you work first, so we can prey properly. Your name would be useful too.

Yes, but if we prey, "let the osmomters at some guys work auto-calibrate" it is more likely to get ignored. Specifics help.

Give him my DDO username. He can figure it out from there. Unless you're claiming that Airmax is more powerful than the Christian God?

It's a machine which determines the osmolality of a sample. It has a little probe which dips into the sample, freezes and reads it, and then pops back up. Because things with more stuff dissolved in it are harder to freeze (this is why salt water is harder to freeze than freshwater), it can use the freezing point to determine how much stuff is dissolved in the sample. Ours is a horrible piece of crap that takes up to an hour to calibrate because it keeps changing its reading.

Taken from the term "osmosis"?

Yeah, since the amount of stuff dissolved is instrumental to determine osmotic pressure.

Why would someone who doesn't believe in a god ask for prayers? I'm sure it's not unheard of, but I don't really understand it.

Can you ask God to tell the Buddha to call me back, I accidentally hung up, and he called on an "unknown" number.

Is this a serious request?? Because it looks like a joke and sarcasm and I asked specifically for none of that.. If this a joke or sarcasm, tts pretty messed up since I'm taking time outta my life to do this for people I hardly know. My heart is to serve others and if that means to pray for others that's what I'm gonna do. So please, if you have a serious request let me know. Thank you. :)

No offense, but I don't think praying takes much time or effort.

Even if I grant tulip good intentions, there is something very sinister about this "prayer" stuff, among other things confirmation bias.

Have a group of people pray for different things, the more general and vague the better. As a matter of probability some of those prayers will be "answered", and thus will be used as a proof that "prayer" works.

Yes prayer to Jesus does work like that, so does praying to Zeus, Allah, Apollo and a light bulb.

Show me that prayer to one specific God shows a significant difference than prayer to any other God, (something that accounts and or doesn't rely on confirmation bias) that's my request.

Hello to everyone here on DDO. This forum thread is meant for anyone and everyone.

How about praying for all mankind to be saved. After all God does urge or exhort us to pray for all mankind:
First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men' 1Timothy 2:1 NASB. And it is God's desire to save all mankind:

'This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth' 1Timothy 2:3-4 NASB.
And God will accomplish His desireto save all mankind:

'So shall my word be which goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to Me empty without accomplishing what I desire, And without suceeding in the matter for which I sent it' Isaiah 55:11 NASB.
Do you pray for all mankind, and desire the salvation of all mankind as God does?

"Is this a serious request?? Because it looks like a joke..."

Praying is trying to telepathically communicate with an invisible wizard; that is a joke in itself. You only get what you put in, so did you expect a lot of serious responses?

This is really nice. A bit of a D"j" vu, about half a year ago a guy named cheesedingo1 made one of these http://www.debate.org..., just like yours it attracted tons of trolls, but it was nice to see some sympathetic Atheists, despite believing not believing in prayer, sticking up/supporting the thread telling the trolls to GTFO, some even asked for prayers to be said for them.
Anyway, you might want to check out that thread, and pray for the people that asked in that thread. In the 2nd to the last post there I basically summed up all 10 pages in one post.

As for a personal prayer request, we've already discussed my Agnostic theist/deist position, So if you could put in a prayer that I; find truth & guidance in all matters, particularly in matters of religion, (you could ask Jesus to "show me the light), & what direction I should take in life, what I should do with my life, what the meaning/purpose of life/existence is etc. Basically, if you could pray that I find the path of truth, that would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, and if you want, I could send you a compilation of studies that I've collected which validate the use of prayer(I.E. that it works to some extent). I actually gave a speech on it for a public speaking class.

Nice to see someone doing nice things for people. And to think all I have been doing to help people in need was volunteering my time and donating items and money. I guess I should step it up a notch!

Well I thought it was serious, but now you mention it, I may have hit my head? Or maybe the unknown number was a prank caller. Maybe I was asleep. Maybe I got lost in my own imagination.

You are lost. Yahshua wants to find you.
