  1. Wtf is wrong with there people. prayer is useless because there is no one up there listening.
    even is there was a god listening prayer would be useless. if there is an all powerful all knowing god he already knew the oil leak would happen and since he did nothing to stop it he wanted it to happen so why should prayers by humans change his mind?
    any god that has the power to stop the leak now had the power to stop it from happening. since it happened you have to conclude that this god wanted it to happen.
    While cleanup crews and technical teams continue efforts to stop crude gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana lawmakers are proposing a different approach: prayer.

    State senators designated Sunday as a day for citizens to ask for God's help dealing with the oil disaster.

    "Thus far efforts made by mortals to try to solve the crisis have been to no avail," state Sen. Robert Adley said in a statement released after last week's unanimous vote for the day of prayer. "It is clearly time for a miracle for us."

    The resolution names Sunday as a statewide day of prayer in Louisiana and calls on people of all religions throughout the Gulf Coast "to pray for an end to this environmental emergency, sparing us all from the destruction of both culture and livelihood."
  2. If prayer is pointless, Obama should go golfing and Tony can go watch a boat race and no one should bitch about it.
  3. Prayer calms and relaxes the body & mind. When the mind is relaxed it can think better and clearer and come up with ideas and solutions to problems. Running around in a stressful panic does not work as well.

    Look at traders for example. How many successful traders do you know who trade well when they are stressed? Probably none because they make idiotic mistakes when stressed. If they do something to relax when getting stressed, they trade better.

    Prayer is one of those things that relaxes the mind & body. Its been proven & written about in medical Journals, so prayer just might work for this oil disaster.

    We seem to have a number of moronic leaders these days.
  5. Then how about a day of just deep, rhythmic breathing? That relaxes the body and mind as well. The time for deep breathing legislation has come. And perhaps you should propose a bill for an Annual Visualization and Positive Imagery week. I can just see it now...
  6. ==================
    Actually while I did pray for a quick BP solving it ,actually its humbling to have a few prayers aswered wait or even wait longer. Especially with so many of my prayers answered ''Yes''

    BP has had such a huge number of safety goofs;
    President Barack unjustly mouthed off about Pres Bush /Katrina-
    seems to be the perfect ''dark''storm.....

    And both BP & Chicago crooks have tried to scam USA with climate exchange/scam[cap & trade scam];
    pay day someday for every scam.

    Many people DONT wait to pray till they get in a BIG mess;
    even though God may answer ''emergency prayers''
