    What happens when you pray for something for someone else that the person didn't want? (unintentionally?)

    Well, ultimately, people still have their free will. You can't really force anything through prayer onto someone else.

    Though it may be bad form to ask for prayer for my selfish self: I had a mole removed on Monday and got the pathology report today. It was dysplastic so I have to go back in January to check the area and possibly remove more of the area around where it was. This isn't my first rodeo (I've had countless spots removed and this is the 4th to have some funny cells) but this one is upsetting me more than I had expected, so I'd very much appreciate any positive energy y'all could throw my way, whether you call it prayer or something else. Thanks, guys.

    I don't believe asking for prayer for yourself is selfish. It is a step of faith just like when you ask it for someone else. Plus, I find that there's an aspect of praying for people that helps me, too. When I read such stories, I tend to take it all inside and feel for the person quite strongly. When I pray, it relieves a good portion of that in me to have discussed it with Abba but also strengthens the bond. I'll be discussing all these posts.

    Prayers, good vibes, and other such things... I believe that the intention is what matters most. And, despite the late date, I've read through everything and sent good vibes for each one in turn. I also ask for something however...

    I have a friend in Iraq, and this is his second tour.The first time around, he became engaged before he left. They wanted to wait until he returned before getting married. That way they would know that they would be together. He came home in January of 2007 and they were married that September. In October, they found out that he was going for a second tour and that it would be for 15 months. He left for his second tour in either late December of 2007 or early January of 2008. I can't remember which. He's been safe so far. They've received news that he's being released early and that he gets to come back home sometime in mid- or late-November. I just want him to be kept safe until he comes home again so that he can finally be with his wife. He's only 23 and she's younger than that. Thank you everyone.
    I have no idea who I am. All I can say is let's rock hard.
