    when I tell them just how many times in my life I've prayed the Sinner's Prayer.

    It was a bad year in school after I prayed to receive Christ. Being a small child, I figured it hadn't stuck and kept trying. And trying. And trying.

    That 'Jesus will make everything better RIGHT NOW' stuff is damaging even to people who honestly believe it.

    Hoping and praying that the empty chairs and empty tables in Iran when all is said and done are as few as possible.
