Here's tough "homework", for those gutsy enough to accept it:

Your assignment:
Spend 5min in earnest prayer a day, for someone on this forum who irritates/irks you the most. Yeah, that one. The one you dislike the most of all. The one who causes you the most grief. The one who's a real pain in the rear for you, and leaves a frown on your face. (if you can't think of anyone, then congratulations: you're perfect )

Judging from recent posts, there should be plenty to pick from, but don't mention any names...it'll just be between you and God. For....hmmm....let's say 7 days. Then come back and report if it made any difference. Just a simple "yes, it worked", or "no...nothing has happpened" is all I'm looking for. And a "I changed", "they changed", or "we both changed" would be helpful too. No names...this is just kind of a self-test. I'm kinda curious about the actual numbers, so I'm gonna do it. I bet I'm already on somebody's list...LOL!

We've all been so hard on each other, beating each other up on almost a daily basis, it will be a refreshing turnaround if all of a sudden we are praying for each other instead...

(praying for more than one is ok too) Any takers?
(If you accept, then you gotta come back here in a week and report what you've learned...)

I'll be out of town next W,T,F, so it'll be a little longer for my feedback, but I'll be back...

Hmmm...let's see....who bugs me the most????????


Bud

Is there a way to make the atheists do this?

I'm 100% sure every one of them finds the Antlered stud disgusting

Aw, bummer. That means no one will be praying for me.

If I promise to be really annoying, will someone pick me?

There is a certain wild animal who will be more than happy to devour me to shreds if I ever dare enter the forest where she prowls

I'm happy. I just saw that there's an "Ignore List" option - I wasn't even aware of that! Yay! Praise the Lord and pass the Twinkies.....
