Just realized that at a NASCAR race there is always a prayer, followed by a rendition of the National Anthem prior to the start of each race. Name another sporting event that does that.

The Catholic and other Christian schools in this area do that. Basketball, volleyball, softball, baseball, tennis, swimming, football, school plays, etc.

Every bass tournament I have ever seen or participated in had a prayer.

The moment that NASCAR and other sports venues think that praying and playing the Anthem will satisfy the majority of fans and their advertisers it will stop. Just a matter of time. NFL no longer has the Anthem on TV. It is played before TV coverage starts so people at home won’t see the thugs and ingrates taking a knee. Good for ratings I guess. Ah yes, everything is going to plan.

I attended a NASCAR race in Michigan during the early ninetys where they held a short mass before the race for the drivers. It was the same weekend that Ernie Irvan nearly lost his life.

Prayer = Asking for stuff, like world peace. Never gonna happen. --- happens! When I pray, I just say, "Thank you". I am grateful for what I have and I don't think we will ever get world peace no matter how much I or everyone prays. On a smaller scale, people recover, but not because of prayers.
Original "religious leaders" found religion as a way of controlling the way people think and getting them to do their bidding!
So if you do believe in a greater entity that created the universe, just say thank you, as I think it would be appreciated more. Wouldn't you?
