All Faith Discussion: What do you pray/wish for today?

We all want something.
Weather it be a true necessity or a deep seeded desire, there is something right now that you wish you had.
What is it? What will you be asking God/the Goddess/Buddah/Krishnah for? Or, if you have no belief system, what do you wish for?

Me? There's a few things.
I pray for personal tolerance with my over-bearing mother (if you knew her, you'd understand).
I pray for compassion, tolerance, and understanding from others.
I pray for a way to get a new haircut and new clothes (and yes, these are needs, you haven't seen my hair and everything I own is stained or falling apart).
I pray for a way to get a new home, big enough for the whole family (all six of us).

What are your prayers/wishes?

  • I'm asking Jesus for a house. Seriously. For me and my family... a place of our own. And I'm thanking Him for the wonderful family I need a house for. :)

  • My son is having difficulties. With moving, with his dad deploying, with lots of things. He was diagnosed with ADHD, but has anxiety. So I asked for his medication to be switched to Strattera. Big mistake. Made things worse for him. But in a way, it is helping us to get more help for him.

    What I pray for is that we get him what he needs, and he can be happy again.

    And I pray for my husbands saftey, and sanity, while he's deployed. I pray for that for everyone deployed. And their families, too.

  • I am, at the moment anyway, praying for peace and tolerance. And, I ask everyday for my son to be who he is. He has PDD-NOS, and most people would want him to be normal. i don't want that for him. I want him to be himself and be happy with it, no matter what that means.

  • I pray for safety and health for my family, especially my little girl. I pray for my 6 week old lima bean :) I pray for a family on this site who has a lot of struggles ahead of them. I pray that I can be a good person, make good decisions, and help make the world better by my example.

  • I pray for my mom, she runs a daycare and because of layoffs she has lost some of her kids, from 6 to only 2 now. I pray for the people who lost their jobs to find another job. I pray for all those who are loosing their homes and jobs.

    I pray that my dad would stop smoking cigars, and drinking sooo much caffeinated coffee, because he has a bad heart and it is shortening his life less every day.
    I am thankful that my dads rush to the hospital two days ago was nothing too serious or life threating. (Blood thiner medicine made his blood to thin)
