Can I get an amen? (from theists AND atheists)

Dear god, even if you only exist in the minds of believers this makes you powerful enough to really turn things around for the better for us here on earth. I invoke you (if I may) to massively inspire more and more of us to adopt a sincere attitude of good will. Grant us, through good-faith conversations, to identify what shared sacred values are at the center of all our diverse religions. Also if you would, heal us from the sickness of thought that inclines us to think our differences cannot be resolved but by violent conflict. 

Amen

The "C" on "Coexist" is commanded to not coexist with anyone peacefully. The world seemed fine until "C" started infecting other nations and cultures. Now, magically no one gets along anymore.

Side: Amen

Nah. The concept of god is not necessary to invoke such things. God would just be a crutch in that instance. Id rather humanity develop those things on its own .

I thank you for your kind words, however I will not join you in the worship of your god. Instead I will offer you my own prayer.

All father, lord of lords,

Though he walks a different path than I, hear my prayer.

May Odin grant you wisdom on your journey,

May Thor grant you strength on your path,

May Loki grant you laughter as you go.

Gods exist in minds and books. In the real world, we are left to our own devises. It's unfortunate that religions are exclusive and cause division. It would be better for everyone if religious beliefs were kept in peoples' homes and churches. I say amen to peace and co-operation but I have serious doubts that prayer will make any difference whatsoever.

You grant that gods exist in minds. Would you grant that these gods are used by people to develop their outlook on life...particularly concerning morality?

Do you tbink of prayer as an utterly useless and unhelpful exercise for both theists and atheists?

Side: Amen
