Can you guys and gals pray for my best friend? She is traveling to Florida, so pray that she'll stay safe and healthy. Also pray that she finds God. She is lost and doesnt have God in her heart. I love her so much, and I dont think I could live without her, in this world or in Heaven. So please, pray for her. Thank you!

I thought religion was banned around here. As with anyone else I hope shes fine but no one needs this. Us atheists are fine. No one needs to find God.

I wasn't asking the atheists. I was asking my fellow Christians.

Fine but don't extend it to "hope she finds God" because that's offensive to atheists like me. As if that makes someone a better person when it patently does not.

I didn't mean to offend anyone, so I'm sorry if I offended you. I'm firmly seated in my belief of God though. I have enough respect for my friend to not force anything on her. In fact, I respect her more than almost anyone else. However, I also love her so much that I want her to have the same happiness in my heart that I believe God has given me. Therefore, I pray that God will show her how happy her heart will be if she accepts Him into her heart. Again, I'm sorry if this offends you or any other atheists.

I don't care one bit what you think about god or anything else. Believe anything you want, but people here ask for prayers all the time when in need, and there's always plenty of people who respond. Unlike you, if it helps them through their crisis I am happy for them. It's just how we do things here in America.   If a simple comment like that twists your panties then maybe you should just find a forum that is less offensive to you.  By the way, your comments are offensive to me, but I respect your right to make them.  Why don't you give the same respect to others.

Yeah, this thread needs to be deleted...

I had absolutely no intention of offending people because I asked them to pray that my friend finds God, but I guess some of y'all took offense to the fact that I want my friend to find God. I'm not sorry if I offended you because of my beliefs. God wants us to evangelize. I am trying to do that by prayer for her.

I am sorry, however, that y'all don't have God in your hearts. You seriously don't know what joy you're missing out on.

I know I shouldn't have posted that "I want her to find God" because of people taking offense. However, I'm proud of my beliefs and would love to tell the world that I love God, and frankly, don't give a flying hoot if I offend people because of it.

The way I see it, those of your who are bothered because I want her to find God, if I was in your shoes, I would ignore what I said. I see people constantly say things online about God not being real. Occasionally, I put in my 2 cents, but I usually don't. Know why? It keeps from fueling a fire that I had no part in building.

Sorry Moderators.

How ridiculous ! I am an atheist and, I am not remotely offended when others pray to their God. I have been alive long enough to know that many people across the world worship a deity of their choice without hurting anybody else !

I’m not an atheist nor an evangelical Christian. I am neither Muslim nor Jew nor Hindu or Buddhist. I’m not Presbyterian, Methodist, Catholic, Baptist, Episcopalian, Congregationalist, nor Mormon. I am human, I just care.

Good for you Nick. The difference between you and the other guy is that you are happy with your beliefs and feel no need to push them off on anyone else.  He, on the other hand, thinks he is right and everyone else is wrong and they should not be allowed to voice anything that does not agree with his beliefs.  In the first place the post was not a discussion about religion, it was about asking for prayers for his friend who he believes is in danger from traveling during this pandemic.

If I recall correctly.. the Owner of the site.. makes allowances for prayer requests..

I do not see the need for the disrespect of someone's love n care for someone elese..

Keep your friend in your heart.. n never be ashamed..(Not that I thought you were )

Hunter, you are fine. No need to have this thread deleted or locked. Your request was completely within the realm of reason.

I am of the same religious convictions as you, and find nothing offensive in your post. I will refrain from saying more about my beliefs.

You are sensible in that you aren’t trying to shove anything figuratively “down anyone’s throat.”

If it helps Hunter: once you find a "soul mate", what I've found seems to help best in remaining in a relationship that one wishes to remain in, is having a good sense of humour, doing your fair share of the house and garden work, and don't be too intense early on in a relationship. 

I get a sense you're a decent bloke, and at the risk of sounding cliched, you'll find 'the one' when they happen along, be it the lass that's travelled to Florida or another. Chin up!

Well, to be honest, I confessed stronger feelings to her at one time, feelings stronger than that of being best friends, and she didn't feel the same. We still love each other dearly though, as best friends. Thanks for the advice!
