It all began as part of a joke about fighting giraffes early Wednesday morning but the hashtag #IfICouldTalkToGod has quickly snowballed into a serious trending topic on Twitter and many are recommending that people simply just pray.

America magazine reported that the trend picked up shortly after Twitter user @MustBeTheMeds tweeted, "#IfICouldTalkToGod I would ask him for 4 talking giraffes so I could start a giraffe fight club," shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday and it was just a joke.

Twitter users seeing the hashtag, which was last used in 2013, saw a lot more than a joke and turned it into a trending discussion.

"It's not #IfICouldTalkToGod, you can, anytime, He won't turn anyone away who seeks Him, it's are we listening when He talks to us? #Prayer," wrote Twitter user Eric Tyrer.

Some Twitter users like ‏@VoL_RizZen appeared annoyed that the hashtag became a trending topic.

"The fact that #IfICouldTalkToGod is trending really shows how blind this world chooses to be. It's called read the Bible and Pray. #Atheists," the user noted.

The Twitter user @MustBeTheMeds was so suprised his tweet became a trending topic that sparked so many different conversations about God, he later wished he hadn't tweeted the hashtag because it was causing him too much trouble.

Here are some interesting tweets with the hashtag below.
