not dead - still reflecting-

Reasons that make it difficult to pray:

1. It seems silly to give God advice.
2) It seems silly to give Him information. "Dear Lord, bless Sally who broke her leg"
3) IT seem odd to praise God for being what he can't help being, like praising a parent for loving their child.
4) We can never be sure there is a connection between our prayer and what happens.
5) It is difficult to speak to a Being we can't see and who does not talk back. I know there are folks who claim that God talks to them but I think this is figure of speech.

So why to we pray? For the simple reason that our Lord commands us to - that ought to be enough.

Doing o.k.
