What Are You Wishing For?

Hello Friends, Viewers and Followers,
No Christmas in July.  No sketch challenges. Just picking up some paper out of that famous box of scraps and using my imagination today.  I was thinking about a question concerning "wishes".  Are prayers and wishes one in the same?  Here is where I would love to hear your response.
  According to Dictionary.com and Wikipedia, wishes = to want; desire; long for (usually followed by an infinitive or a clause):I wish to travel. I wish that it were morning;  to desire (a person or thing) to be (as specified): to wish the problem settled; to entertain wishes, favorably or otherwise, for: to wish someone well; to wish someone ill;  to bid, as in greeting or leave-taking: to wish someone a good morning. to request or charge:  I wish him to come.  In fiction a wish is a supernatural demand placed on the recipient's unlimited request. When it is the center of a tale, the wish is usually a template for a morality tale, "be careful what you wish for"; it can also be a small part of a tale, in which case it is often used as a plot device. One can wish on many things for example: wishing wells, dandelions when one blows the seeds or light them on fire, stars and much more. When one wishes in a well he or she throws money in, in the hope his or her wish comes true, and the money normally goes to a charity.  Some cultures have customs in which people are encouraged to "make a wish", such as blowing out the candles on a birthday cake, seeing a shooting star at night, tossing a coin into a wishing well or fountain or breaking the wishbone of a cooked turkey. Many believe such wishes can only come true if they are kept a secret from other people. Others, on the other hand, believe that wishes come true only if they are told to someone else.
Here are two cards I'm sharing today: I opened the scrap box and pulled out items that went together.  white and gray cardstock; gold cardstock; a piece of frame cut from a Spellbinders die; The only new item was words cut from Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlits word die.

Back to the original question: Are prayers and wishes one in  the same?
Thanks for visiting with me today.  You may leave your comment in the box below.
