Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

Why am I praying? No beliefs.

by BecomingLuke on February 23, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

When I moved out I walked away from everything involving god, faith, religion and tuned out whenever the topic came up. So why, now that I'm facing my future disabled am I praying and looking for something to believe in? I've had this disease since I was 9, and never has it been a topic of needing faith, I just always laughed and turned away when someone said they'd pray for me about it.

I'm just so scared and getting more and more discouraged every day.
