Sounds like a great idea, and something that is needed in all our communities.

Someone should tell these poor misguided followers the 11th Commandment. The frist ten are open to interpretation. Lots of it too.

Harry S Truman knew this when he dropped the bombs on Japan in 45 - and also knew he would never be prosecuted for his horrific "War Crimes" against humanity. Nor would he ever face the evil future possibilities of this unholy precedent and satanic act.

nycbigdog,,, Had there been no atomic bombing and the war gone on there was an plan to conventionally bomb railways partially to cause severe food shortages. Japanese historian Daikichi Irokawa says' "Immediately after defeat 10 million Japanese would have likely starved to death." And what about the tens of thousands of Americans that would have been killed or injured fighting their way from town to town and city to city through sometimes hilly to mountainous terrain.

I think it is a wonderful idea. I understand it is a "Church" thing but it is a passive way to let the pillbillies know that the other citizens of Ironton are going to reclaim the city. Pills do not belong.

This Joshua Walk is a step in the right direction whether you worship God, Buddah, Allah, your spouse or children. Agnostic and atheists alike... All who are sick of the drug problem have an opportunity to show support for a drug free(er) city. Don't let the fact a church is sponsoring this walk stop you from participating.

Whether you believe in prayer or not... This is it a wonderful opportunity for Christians to show their faith in the Lord and it is also an opportunity for non-believing citizens who are sick of the crime, the drugs, the corruption, and oppression to passively say "We ain't putting up with it!"

Quit keyboard B!tching behind the computer screen and get out there and do something about it.

YEAH!

Really!?!?!?!?!.Praying is a way to make your self feel warm and fuzzy inside. Basically you are asking a factitious religious figure/God for guidance or help. This is insane. People say you have to have faith. What is faith?
Faith is trust, hope and belief in the goodness or trustworthiness, of a person, concept or entity. This is insane to believe and mindF**K yourself. Have you seen or have proof that such God(s) exist? The bible for example is a story book right? A man gets swallowed by a whale and live for three days in the belly of the whale!! REALLY!!! I know "" miracles"" and crazy things happen everyday that can not be explained but come on! Think about it. God has a plan for everyone/everything right?.Then why pray and ask your God anything. I understand there are allot of pro/anti religious arguments out there but I cannot fathom the idea of talking to a make believe person....I am not knocking people on a personal level. It is everyones right to believe in anything they want and I respect that. And good luck on the praying for Ironton,Ohio. Its the chocolate starfish of the U.S.----- "DUCES" YOU REDNECK PILLBILLY INBRED TURDS WHO ARE SPONGING THE GOVERNMENT AND GETTING A FREE RIDE. I hope my prayers to the WELFARE GODS come true and you are left with no choice but to man the f**k up, find some dignity, find some integrity,find some honesty, and get a job. Stop being a drain on society. You are the parasites using the U.S. GOV'T AS A HOST. SUCK ON SH*T and CHOKE YOURSELVES!!!!! You shouldnt be allowed to call your self an American.

Nothing anyone with a 'proven' existence has done has worked. Fussing behind a computer screen merely creates negativity. Maybe you do not believe in God, but certainly you believe in positive and negative. Hopefully Karma and the saying what goes around comes around.

Ones belief *is* a personal thing. Attacking one's personal belief is the opposite of respect. I happen to love God with all my heart, my soul, and my mind; I believe because He *has* proven Himself to me over and over.

*God chooses us, we do not choose Him. He gives us freewill to accept or deny Him.

*If you cannot hear God, you do not belong to God. You will hear but you will not comprehend.

*If you are not for Christ, you are against Him. Pro-Christ/Anti-Christ.

*If I am wrong, I lose nothing. Nonwhatevers lose eternity.

Almost all creatures assume coincidence is the act of a sentient being. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_detection
It is better for an animal in the wild at risk of being prey to assume the sound in the forest is a predator rather to assume it is nothing. We still do the same thing in our regular lives. Remember the normal human response when you hear a noise at night. You grab a weapon and a phone before you investigate. The whole time it was the wind, perhaps a nuisance animal in a crawl space or something.
People take it one step farther in their normal lives too. Just as well they have another psychological feature I cannot remember the name of. If you pray for 100 different things, and one of them comes true, the person has a bias to remember the 1 time it "worked" and forget the other 99 times. Furthermore people pray for things they want, and they often follow through with other actions.
If the city has a problem, and people pray for a change, chances are the police, health professionals, and charitable institutions are already working on a solution. 2 hands working do more than 1000 praying. The prayer might appear to "work" but its the other people actually doing the work that are going to cause the change. But the religious people will be happy to take credit.
