I have osteoarthritis, which especially affects my knees.
I have glaucoma, so use eye drops both morning and night.
Yet through history gays have always dominated religious life and churches.
Entrenched scriptural literalism is, in my opinion, completely out of touch with reality.

By my definition, prayer is consciously hanging out with God. Being with God in a deliberate way.
Also, I walk and hike in several different nearby parks near our home several early mornings a week.
However one might pray - in any verbal way or completely without words - is unimportant to God. What matters is the heart's intent.
Jesus is an example. We have other examples, including many of our ancestors as role models who understood the inner meaning of our orientation.
