There’s an interesting new site out there called Dear God which is a simple collection of (often anonymous) submitted prayers. It’s kind of like Post Secret, but more healthy (in my opinion). Here’s the blurb:
Dear God is a global project for people around the world to share their innermost hopes – and fears – through prayer.
It doesn’t matter what your version of God is…Jesus, Allah, Buddha or simply a spiritual universal energy… praying to a higher power soothes and heals. It’s scientifically proven that people who pray are healthier, happier and more resilient.
Share your prayers here and help us create hope one prayer at a time. Simply send us your personal letter to your God and/or a picture that sums up your message visually. (Dear God will source a picture if you don’t have one).
I’m normally not a huge fan of vague notions of religion such as this, but at the same time I’m fascinated by the universal hopes and fears that are exposed when people turn to God in prayer. What do you think?
