  1. I'm curious about how often you guys usually pray each day. Both questions are answered anonymously. In the first question you can only choose one option, and in the second question you can choose several. I personally pray once every day, always before I go to sleep. I then thank the Lord for the good things that have happened during the day, and ask for courage, strength or whatever I feel that I need in that moment. I also pray an "extra" time if I find out that somebody has died, or if something I'm extra thankful for happens. I have Asperger's and like to have a routine to follow, that's why I seldom pray on other occasions than before bed.

    I searched on the forum for discussions on bisexuality and got 0 results, which surprised me. I myself am bisexual, but have only been in straight relationships. I've made a poll with simple answers, and you may answer them anonymously. If you'd like to elaborate your opinions that would be great! EDIT: Something must've gone wrong when I searched "bisexuality", I just tried again and found lots of results! I will check those threads out.

    It's been nearly three months since I posted this, so I thought I should update you! My tics have gotten way worse, but ironically I feel better about them now than ever before! Last year I felt terribly embarrassed about minor tics in my face, that weren't very noticeable. Now I have more vocal ones and lots involving my shoulders and arms (impossible to hide), but I feel fine really. Thank you all for the prayers!

    My tics (excessive blinking, compulsive shoulder shrugs and face twitches) have gotten really bad lately. I've done my best trying to keep them at bay but so far there's no change. They're making me really uncomfortable, especially in public, and sometimes I just want to go and hide. Please pray with me that I'll get past them.

    I have someone that's very close to me, who has severe mental problems, is very irresponsible, and is barely able to take care of her own home because of stress. Now they and their partner are expecting a baby around New Years, and I have no idea how it's going to work out. Neither of them have steady jobs, they live in a messy area of town, and like I said before they can barely take care of their place, so how are they supposed to do all that plus take care of a baby at the same time? Sleepless nights and stress gives the mother psychoses, and having a baby would without a doubt put her in such a state. I don't know how to help them. They simply do not realize the responsibility. It's such a chaotic situation and it's so overwhelming. Please pray with me that it works out somehow. I don't have a set opinion on abortion really, but I feel that it would solve the situation in the best way, even though it's not a good solution. Please pray.

    Agreed. Also, Western countries are more likely to relate to other Western countries with similar cultures, than with countries not geographically or culturally close.

    It's going quite well really; I still have a lot of tics but I've gotten diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome, and I'm scheduled to get regular therapy for it.

    Which part of the world do you live in?

    Awesome! Must be cool to live close to the Vatican State
  15. As you may have noticed, I love statistics! I know there's a poll that is US specific, so I thought I'd make an international one. I'm going to assume none of you live in Antarctica.
  16. Hillsong Worship was GREAT! Fantastic music and people.

  17. Seeing Hillsong Worship tomorrow, and 4 out of the 5 singers I was looking forward to seeing aren't going to be there, even though they were all on the latest album... Can't help but feel a little decieved.

      Hope you have a good time regardless!

    What was the last movie you watched?

    I watched a documentary today that was presented by the BBC's Stacey Dooley. It was about the only prison boot camp for women in the US, called "Shock". It was then compared to a regular women's prison on Manhattan, NYC. The documentary follows a few women at the two institutions, and shows their background and what they are hoping for in the future. It shows the softer side of these criminals, which is often forgotten about. It's a quite touching documentary, and actually made me tear up a few times. It can be watched here:

    Which part of the world do you live in?

    Yes, it's often used synonymously with Australia as a continent. It's the country Australia and the surrounding islands.
