Prayers

Thursday, September 29, 2011

I don’t believe in prayers but there are times when I wish that I still do. 

A friend is suffering but I cannot find the words to express my sympathy or alleviate her pain. How can I say that I will pray for her—whisper those words that capture the most earnest supplication for her good health--if I don’t believe in prayers? Saying that I wish her the best, though heartfelt, seems hollow compared to the panacea of prayers. Everything I say feels ineffectual because I’ve lost belief in the divine. All I can offer are my wholehearted hopes, thoughts and wishes for her mind to stay strong and her health restored.

"let me know if there is anything i can do." is what i usually say. and if asked to include her/him in my prayers. i say "i will" because i pray to joe pesci like george carlin. joe pesci gets things done.
