Today’s Question: Do you have a favorite prayer?


Question:
Do you have a favorite prayer?

Answer: I have a number of “favorite” prayers, but here’s one of the simplest, which has proved to extraordinarily powerful and effective for me, especially in times of crisis:

“Lord, I could use a little help, right now!”

Miracles have sometimes, shortly followed.

This simple but powerful prayer is ALWAYS TRUE
and it also demonstrates TRUE FAITH,
since I wouldn’t have invoked divine assistance,
if I didn’t FULLY BELIEVE that I would RECEIVE IT.

Praise God, I’m NOT superstitious and have absolutely no regard for knocking on wood, “lucky” rabbit’s feet, natural forces, demons, or idols.

Such a prayer also leaves one’s ultimate fate solely in God’s most capable hands; which is where it always is and always should be; no matter what.

Try it. It works!

Yoga is an essential part of Hindu philosophy and the two cannot be separated.

This is from the Hindu American Foundation: “Yoga is a combination of both physical and spiritual exercises, entails mastery over the body, mind and emotional self, and transcendence of desire. The ultimate goal is moksha, the attainment of liberation from worldly suffering and the cycle of birth and rebirth.”

As a Catholic the term “rebirth” in this excerpt should be very disconcerting. Catholics simply do not believe in rebirth. As Catholics we believe you are given one lifetime. You are baptized and will live your life as a believer in Christ as your Savior. You aren’t given multiple lives to work out your final destiny.

Additionally, Catholics “get” suffering. Maybe sometimes too much; but nonetheless, we don’t—as a group—run from suffering. We understand its redemptive value. While we may wish to be liberated from it and can certainly pursue that through Christ, we don’t see it as our “ultimate goal.” Our ultimate goal is to unite our lives with Christ, the Suffering Servant.

Or there is this from the Hindu American Foundation: “There is the concerning trend of disassociating Yoga from its Hindu roots. Yet, even when Yoga is practiced solely in the form of an exercise, it cannot be completely delinked from its Hindu roots.”

Abortionists behind “40 Days for Death” prayer campaign are obviously praying to the wrong god.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal and to kill and to destroy. I am come that they may have life and may have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)

Know you not that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? But if any man violate the temple of God, him shall God destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which you are.  (1 Corinthians 3:16-17)

And they were mingled among the heathens, and learned their works: And served their idols, and it became a stumblingblock to them. And they sacrificed their sons, and their daughters to devils. (Psalms 106:35-37)

How is greek mythology different from the bible?

Q: How is Greek mythology different from the bible?
Weren´t they both created by humans? Weren´t they both written by humans? Don´t they both tell incredibly over-thought morals? Aren´t they both explaining to you the world as a “science for dummies” book?

A: The Bible is a prophetic book, predicting many, many years in advance, thousands of events … all of which have (so far) truly come to pass … just as described.

Most of those prophecies describe the earthly life and the historical, divine person-hood of Jesus Christ, the promised Redeemer of all mankind.

Since no other book of any kind has ever been able to accurately predict the future, it’s clear that God is the true author of the Bible … and man merely serves as his scribe.

By comparison, Greek mythology was simply an appealing way for ancient man to try to explain natural events and processes.

At best, Greek mythology is based on the fanciful accounts of ancient, supernatural beings who, though powerful, were not truly god(s).

The Bible likely speaks of these beings here:

Genesis 6:4 Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went in to the daughters of men, and they brought forth children, these are the mighty men of old, men of renown.

Most of these (Nephilim) were destroyed by Noah’s flood, but others survived, and along with their offspring, caused big problems in later years. Goliath is probably the best known of them all.

In so far as the objective of all sacred scripture (the Bible): The Bible does not explain how the heavens go … but how to go to heaven.

Perhaps that might constitute incredible moral over thought to you … but to me … it’s just common sense.
