"People pray because they feel like their life or world is not in their control.  So, assert some control, first over yourself, then over the situation.  As others have pointed out, the first step is to remain calm and the second is to make…"

"I tend to meditate. I usually just sit in a chair, close my yes, and rest and focus my thoughts. I shove the fear aside and look at the problem as rationally as possible. If I need to put my faith in anything, then I put my faith in myself, modern…"

"Kim, please reach out and talk to the people you love and let them know you are worried and need their support.  There is comfort in knowing people care about you and love you.  Having people pray for you or put "hope" oil on you…"

"Take charge of your body and mind as much as within your capability. What the diagnosis may eventually be, make it your mission to educate yourself about whatever afflicts you. The human body is able to heal itself, if you help it as much as you…"

"Instead of praying? Well you are doing it now by talking about it. I know it is a bit of a shock to get news like that and the first few days get a bit foggy until you get your head around it. I am sure that you will get better advice and solace…"

"If you think about it, prayer is really just a form of meditation. I would recommend you find something that has a calming effect on you - a place, an activity, etc. - and do that. Clear your mind, relax, and just "be". That wil help you…"

Darrell Mont replied to KNentrup's discussion 'First crisis without God'
"As frightning as it is, try to stay calm until you have a certain diagnosis. Specifically, because the added stress can significantly impact other aspects of your heart (elevated blood pressure, ulcers, etc.). If you do get a bad diagnosis, spend…"
