Survey: U.S. religious landscape in flux
Daily prayer and good health
They seemed to together for me, as I read the news article about people leaving organized religion first thing this morning as I sat down at my deks for work. The 2nd article I read later on spirituality.com as a break from some monotonous editing. While the first article was fairly forboding in its sense of religion, the second was uplifting. Now, granted, the first article does not necessarily mean that people have less faith or are not spiritual but that they are leaving mainstream Christian churches and branches in favor of "non-denominational" and "non-organized" christian and non-christian churches alike.
In wake of this flux, it was so satisfying to read about praying daily and steadfastly rather than thinking that prayer is getting on your knees on Sunday morning or just before you go to sleep. Prayer is a moment-by-moment, steadfast, daily activity.
