Faith works -right?! Prayers work – right?! Prayers work on behalf of other – right?!
So if you have several million people praying for you each day and or night it has to effect you doesn’t it? President Hinckley is the beneficiary of that. He’s even acknowledged those prayers.
I can’t even come close! If I’m really really sick I might get 8 or 10 family members and hopefully a few groups each day in the temple praying for me. But not on a regular every day basis.
I thought about starting an email prayer pryamid – you prayer for the two people on the last line of the list and send the email to 10 or your LDS/Christian friends and ask them eliminate the top row of names, move everyone down and pray for the bottom row…and pass it on. But somehow I just don’t think the sincerity and faith would be there…so that probably wouldn’t work.
Then I thought about starting a prayer list for the bloggernacle. Everyone could add their name, it could be printed off and then each person could pray for everyone on the list…either by name or as a group. That probably wouldn’t work either, I’d get flamed for just suggesting it, and most bloggers could care less….they have enough problems of their own to pray about.
So I guess that leaves one alternative, I have to pray for myself excersizing my own faith….how dull is that? Oh well, I guess President Hinckley deserves our faith and prayers…I don’t know if he needs my prayer, but he gets them anyway and I hope they help.
