Did you know that prayer can be humorous and healing for family stress?

Did you know that prayer can be humorous and healing for family stress? Prayer is one of the most potent antidotes to anxiety. Connecting with a higher power helps you gain strength and clear your mind. Now, I don’t mean prayer acting on negative emotions such as, “Please Lord, smote these people NOW!” or “I pray they will be tortured in the zombie apocalypse”, or “Can they at least fall into a big hole in the living room floor that goes straight to hell then can You make the hole disappear, like something in the Twilight Zone movie?”

            Prayer actually can be healing and to the point, and a great help in reducing family stress.  Some of my most intense prayers are one word such as “Help!” This can certainly be embellished to “Please Help!”  Prayers of thanks work well, too. We can always find something to be thankful for, and that can be very uplifting. I’ve heard the expression, “an attitude of gratitude” can work wonders for you.

However, always be aware of your evil inclination. Come on now, we all have it. So prayers of revenge are not recommended:

             “Thank you Lord, that Schmuck just developed some heinous disease,” or “I am grateful that I don’t have to share my life with Vicious anymore,” is probably not going to benefit you or the object of your disaffection.

However, what can truly benefit you is a copy of “Laughing in the Rain – Self Care for the Storms of Life”. I’m praying that it will put a smile on your face!dog praying
