ďOn a daily basis, Americans claim they are twice as likely to say "I love you" as to say a curse word, and six times more likely to say a prayer than to take a drink, according to a FOX News poll released Friday. ď

What country have I been living in?
I know I grew up on the South side, still . . .
Itís as if we've leapt back past a few
decades to the 50ís.  Isnít this just people
wanting to say and create a feel good image?

I"m not so surprised. I don't see why anybody would be, thats just me though.

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

"I love you"

nor did I hear/read any prayers except what I read here at Passions

I'm sorta surprised by that, but prayer is a private thing for many people, so I guess it's not so farfetched.

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

Sometimes prayers are said with a person's eyes. Look carefully the next time you're standing in line to check out at the grocery store. There are prayers being said every minute of every day...some people just don't know how to put them into words.

One can see the effect of wind, but very rarely can actually see wind.  So it is with prayer.  Most is going to be completely internal or at most mouthed, but rarely given audible voice.  Just because one cannot hear it doesn't mean that it doesn't occur.

Well, most people will still SAY a curse word before they will a prayer as cursing is more socially acceptable than prayer it seems. we'll remove prayer and religion completely, but won't spare our children's minds the profanity on t.v.
