Having been raised in the Judeo-Christian belief, I have always been a believer of the existence of God. My understanding of God has changed over the years, and now look to be changing again. I still have an overwhelming belief in some all powerful force in the Universe, something that is in everything and of everything, and I'm trying to reconcile that with Buddhist belief systems. When I pray for someone/something, it is to this all powerful force that my prayers are focused.
One of the issues I'm having trouble with is that I hear you all talking about praying for this friend that is experiencing some difficulty. I'm certainly confused. As a Buddhist, who or what to you pray to/for when you are offering up prayers? Can you share some examples with me (without being personal).
