Ways of Praying

Praying is the way to addressing God, making a request to the almighty, beseeching and imploring. New Roget’s Thesaurus defines praying as invoking, supplicating, communicating with God, worshipping, begging, adjuring and pleading. With the ultimate devotion to the Almighty God, anyone must pray for forgiveness for all the evil doings. In this article, you will learn how to pray.

1. When anyone prays to God, it is like presenting the most beautiful flower in exchange for salvation or spiritual favor from God. The greater the beauty of the flower, the greater the chances of gaining the salvation he is seeking. If the petitioner’s present to the God isn’t worthy, God would turn his back and ignore the prayer request.
2. When approach to God, get ready properly with the desirable qualities that will please the God. Get your mind fixed for the salvation and blessing, it will increase the chance of obtaining God’s blessings.
3. If you lack in necessary qualities for successful prayer, you prayer could be ignored by God. Believe in God, abide by the rules, and remember him in every step you take.
4. When it will benefit the spiritual growth of you, God will answer your prayer. Pray to God for proper deposition, the grace may touch your heart and lead you towards. Though, the timing for achieving the deposition entirely depends on the grace of God.
5. The most important prior to approach God is the conversion of heart. The petitioners must have a sincere desire to change his way of life from worldly ways to the spiritual ways.
6. There is a need to always approach God in a humble manner. A prayer said in humility is worth more than all the boastful prayers. When appropriate, one should kneel in an act of reverence, recognizing his sinfulness. Humility adds another petal to the flower.
7. Approach God with the simplicity of a child. God is Almighty. God knows all, sees all. There’s no way to hide anyone’s wrong doing or even secret will from God. Kneel in front of God and present your prayer.

Letting Go

Releasing. Moving on. These are words that come to mind when holding on to the status quo becomes too painful or takes too much energy. Even when we’re ready, it’s seldom easy to let go.

Ask GOD and Get help in tough times

When you desire to do good and your success honors GOD and helps people, praying for the success isn’t a selfish act. GOD is almighty. He helps his children in every manner when he has been asked for help. But asking for help is not easy always. It depends on your believe and faith in GOD. However, GOD loves us so he helps if he has been asked properly. Here are some important tips that would be helpful when times are tough and you desire the help of the almighty.
• The very first step for getting help is to believe that the almighty is there for you and he has the ability to help you. No matter how tough the situation is. He is the one and can solve it. If you do not have your faith in GOD, you won’t be able to receive any help from him.
• God is always watching and listening, and he wants to make our lives easy and beautiful. When times are hard, pray to the almighty and ask him for guidance. Once you have told what you need with your true heart, God will listen you and help. As he has his own planning for us, so perhaps he won’t do precisely as your wish.
• Go to church to come closer to the GOD as he first listen those people who have found in the way to him. Those people find their faith stronger so their prayers are answered faster and they get God’s support from everywhere.
• Reading Bible is very important as it can help to find peace in the troubles. The words of GOD are most powerful and you may find your answers or desired help from the Bible as GOD told us through this how to live happy lives.

Beyond Today: BT Daily – Daniel Part 3 – Do Your Prayers Get You Through the Night?

When you look at the story there of Daniel in the lion’s den, you find Daniel being trapped by the only thing that the politicians of the court there, in the Persian court, could get him on. And that was his own personal life. They had probably gone through all of the records to find out if Daniel had compromised or embezzled money or had done something that was against the law

The Other Side of Grace

what do you do when you realize you’ve climbed the ladder leaning on the wrong wall? A comment Mike made in our last podcast about his “feeling lied to” by those he knew who helped him learn how to run the religious treadmill, opens a discussion with Brad and Wayne about how we think of the people and places
that were part of our lives while we trying to serve God religiously. To many it does feel like they were duped or lied to. For others it felt like they had too much invested in the old ways to even consider another alternative. In time, however, grace does its work in us and we find ourselves thinking very differently about those who are still caught in the system of religious obligation.

A very timely podcast for me. I look forward to that wonderful place of grace where I am completely at peace with the past. But I don’t believe I’ll get there without first taking time to honestly express my hurt, angst, anger and confusion. Sometimes that looks ugly, but it seems to be a necessary part of moving past it.
Of course, I could just suck it up, put on my best Mr. Rogers face and pretend it’s all good – I learned that in “church”. Looks like grace and forgiveness on the outside, but inwardly it drives the resentment deeper, moving me further from the peace I seek.
Some days I think it’s better for me to feel angry because someone lied to me, than to lie to myself because I don’t want to admit that I feel angry.
Perhaps true grace and real honesty are not so incompatible…?

Each time I listen to a podcast I find myself nodding and saying .. yep .. been there, thought that, and have lived in a world the past 27 years where I pushed it all aside and told myself that I was wrong for even thinking that. I suppose couple that with being a “club” member and being told that I didn’t know what I was talking about didn’t help either. I’m so thankful to be on this journey – and the chains continue to fall away with each podcast. Thank you!

In the book “The Archko Volume” , Caiphas is reflecting on the recent resurrection of Jesus and reports of Jesus appearing before him. The encounter is very dramatic for Caiphas and he ends up resigning his post. The story begins a little more than half way down on page 125 and goes to page 127. I cannot imagine a more powerful realization that he must have felt seeing Jesus and realizing he was on the wrong ladder.

Catholic, Luthern, Presbyterian, Baptist events, and now small group…I have no anger or regrets…for through the denominations and people, and my limited perception…I believe that He walked with me gleaning the things I needed to form a special relationship with Him and with His creation. I still walk humbling knowing I can be tripped up and then pass it on. Thank God for His Grace and Mercy. Found myself nodding with Brad a lot.
