Melanie, of Sparks from a Combustible Mind word prompt is about thoughts and prayers and whether or not it is worth sending them.
It depends on people’s belief system, sometimes just the thought of someone thinking for them, praying in for them makes a difference. They know they are not alone and it installs a little bit of hope.
Do prayers and thoughts do anything?
Again, it is your own belief system. I’ve prayed for things when I am feeling low, or having problems. Most of the time something happens to make the situation that little bit more easier to live with. Whether that is because I believe something good will come of praying, or there is something or rather someone out there looking out for me.
I don’t believe in an all seeing entity out there, but I do believe in angels. I remember being in a car crash, where my bonnet flew open, covering my windscreen, and all the time I was driving, I didn’t feel scared or alone. Something saved me and my daughter that day, I’m convinced of it.
I do agree with Fandango, that it takes more than thoughts and prayers. Action is needed, and if you are in a position to do so, then make the world a better place. It is easy living in an ivory tower, talking the talk, but actions do speak louder than words.
Guns need to be licenced in America, they should stop selling them in shops. The UK has hardly any gun crime. We do have a problem with knife crime, but the damage is limited. If you want to make real change then think about how you can make things better.
