Irishlad7496 suggests that "it is the little things that matter to God so why not pray for them". Perhaps he is right that it is the little things that seem to matter with 'God' as the hypothetical being seems to be completely disinterested in the big things, like cancer, etc. But then, the gods' of the religions have always been small-minded, concerned, as they all seem to be, with how we dress, what we eat, and what position or direction we pray in, etc. And just why would 'God' want "a personal relationship"?

There's the verse in the Bible that says take the log out of your eye before pointing out the speck in your brother's eye. It's very easy for us to point out flaws in other people but we often ignore looking at ourselves and examining our actions/attitudes. I think it's perfectly fine to pray for parking spots and the little things in life. It's the little things that matter to God so why not pray for them. He wants us to pray all the time, not necessarily when we just need things but a constant conversation with Him. After all it's a personal relationship He wants, not just a one-way phone line.

Ya, Mike Piazza is really deep and spiritual...him and his "playmate" only dates. I suppose the Pope will come out and say depicting yourself as a sex object is ok? Ya right, Go "Catholic" Mike Go!

I think God has more important things to get involved in than a sporting event, a parking space close to the mall entrance or dinner reservations. We should be more worried about having the strength, wisdom and our God given abilities to get through life.
