Our leaders on the scene asking multiple times for prayers, why?
It’s a pacifier.
And what exactly are we suppose to be praying for? And praying to what for what?
And to be elected to a leadership position you must display a strong belief in prayer.
Prayer is completely self serving
Prayer and meditation may be cousins maybe, but there is harm in praying to and relying on an external source, expecting action from that source and doing nothing. Being subservient to a higher being is de-empowerment and esteem lowering, there is nothing higher than us (consciousness) and we need to start acting like it.
The underlying problem also is that there is something out there that is going to come and save us or helps us. We need to realize that we are all we have and step up to the plate and not pacifying ourselves waiting on the savior.
