a minor lesson on public (and private) prayer


A little while ago I read a post on one of the satire sites I have on the blogroll and it addressed something I have noticed and attempt to be conscious of myself.  I believe that God hears us when we pray.  I believe we should talk to him and ask things of Him with at least as much thought as we would if we were addressing someone we could see.  I think many times we fall into using religious phrases and don’t really mean or think about what we’re saying.  It could be helpful to read this post and the comments that follow it.

Oh, here’s some thoughts I have about sarcasm and satire.

Sarcasm = using ridicule to degrade someone else and promote self.

Satire = using ridicule to degrade error and promote truth and goodness.
