Do you have a favorite prayer, mantra, etc? I like the "Alcoholics Anonymous" prayer to be honest, because it has a great message and anyone can live by it.

I have heard this prayer a time or two and I agree that it is very nice. My favorite prayer is definitely Psalm 139. It is very good, read it, it will bless you.

I've never heard of that one, do you think you could send it to me in a message?

I don't have a favorite one, I guess b/c I do not repeat myself, I just talk to God like I'm talking to someone. Now I do love some very popular ones, like the Serenity Prayer, and I love to hear the little ones recite the God is great, God is good prayer, and Now I lay me down to sleep. I love your discussion topic, hope you are having a very blessed, wonderful weekend my friend :)

I agree, sometimes when I pray it is not a formal prayer or anything, it is just my thoughts! I like the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep prayer too although it is kinda morbid! "If I die before I wake..."

I like the Serenity Prayer but have altered it somewhat to fit my diety and my preference. "Goddess grant me the strength to change the things I can The patience to accept the things I cannot And the widsdom to know the difference." I also have a personal 'mantra' of which I remind myself when faced with people who, for whatever reason, refuse to hear what I am saying. "Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig." These two have gotten me through many frustrating times.

Thanks for responding, I like your mantra. I need to think of one for myself, I think sometimes I say "Okay deep breaths" to get through things...I used to have panic attacks and when I feel pressure building up I have to try to breathe.
