Does God answer our prayers?
Welcome to my hub (25), Does God answers our prayers?
May God guide and help me to say the right things in these religious articles?
In the past God seems to be more willing to listen to our prayers. This is a story in the Bible; Moses goes up Mount Sinai and meets God as a burning bush, where God gives Moses The Ten Commandment. That is great since he talked to God, and God not only gave him the commandment but also helped Moses free the Jews. But today does God answer our prayers?
Does God answer our prayers?
Praying God: I am praying God every day of my life, I pray God with our traditional prayers, like the sign of the cross followed by The Lord prayer, and then other prayers; I pray God with my own prayers that I have written, I pray God and hope that God hears my prayer and answers my prayer by granting my earthly request. I have written several prayers in these religious writings and one of them is written here under. But does God or will God answer my prayers?
Let me explain how I see the situation here, today we are not asking God to do something out of the ordinary, as we are not like the Jews that wanted Yahweh to help them, so that they could reclaim their Promised Land; and for the same reason we are not like the Muslim people that want their God Allah to help them conquer the entire world, we are only praying God to help us in our daily struggle and health issues. You see we imagine our God to be a benevolent God that would help anybody that turns to him and prays; so all we need for that is a benevolent God and we pray to this benevolent God. So let me write a prayer that I would pray after the traditional prayers that everybody usually prays.
With my personal concerns I come to you praying my lord God, I am praying thee for forgiveness of my sins and reconciliation to thy spiritual eternal benevolent life force, I am praying in the hope that I would become worthy to pray to you and my prayer would be heard and accepted, I am praying in the hope that you would hear my prayer for help and help me and my family overcome these family illnesses that never seem to end; Father, hear my prayers and help us, amen.
I have prayed so many times already, but God seems to ignore my prayers and my family problem go on and on and they never seem to end, so I start thinking that it is very unlikely that God answers our prayers, I cannot think of any other excuse and I have reasons to believe that I should be worthy in God’s eyes, because I pray and even write religious issues. Okay there might be an issue because I do not go to church on Sundays, but that is because I am not able to go because of this illness in my family, so I have to stay put at home.
Dear readers, in my case, perhaps I need to be more patient and refrain to criticise God, since it seems risky to criticise God, as we all know God is God and we are supposed to accept anything at all from God even if it make us suffer, because there might be other reasons why it is so. But I believe that if we pray God, then we should deserve to be heard and answered from God, otherwise why should we always pray and believe, and then accept whatever it comes to us and believe that it is God’s will, here I would like to ask our readers?
I have to say that in my mind, heart and soul there is this understanding that goes like this; if there is really a God like a person as we have been taught to believe in, then this God being our Father should listen to his own children, and so, God should hear and answer our prayers according to what we deserve, otherwise soon or later we will not believe in God anymore. So, we come back to our first question; will God answer our prayers?
Will God answer our prayers, or does God answer our prayers? Yes that is my question, does God answer our prayers? Yes you have read it right the first time and I will repeat it here again just to make sure that you understand what I mean, does God answer our prayers?
I am asking this because I would like to know if there is anyone who may have proof or at least really feels that God answers our prayers in any ways possible let him speak out.
You see, I don’t know anymore what to believe today, I have prayed to God for a long time for help, but God seems to ignore me completely. Not only I have prayed God many times every day of my life lately, but I have also written many blogs and Hubs about religions, in the hope that by explaining religions as it is in my heart, which might happen to be a bit different from the main religious stream in different ways, I have done this in the hope that it may help religions to survive in the future, but God does not seem to take any notice of that.
But now, let me just see what is happening today, because there is another question that comes to my mind; as we have heard many times lately that there is going to be the end of the world soon, I would like to ask you this: Do you believe that it could really happen and the end of the world will be the 21st of December 2012 as many forecast? Is this event really going to happen? What is your answer to what I have just asked? My guess is that we just don’t know.
So I am saying here what my heart and soul tells me, I believe that there is no end of the world on the 21st December 2012, it cannot be I don’t see even the signs that other people claim to see, the only thing I see is that religions need to be modified and that is not the end of the world ether; you see, if religions are modified then it marks the end of some religious things and therefore the beginning of something else, so that we can say one day that a new system has arrived and the old system has ended, that is the only end that I can see today. Anyhow today while I am editing this article the 21st December 2012 has past and nothing has happened, so the world has not ended. Thanks God it was a false alarm.
Still pray and hope for an answer
Now let me go back to what I was saying, as I have said I have been praying God for an answer to my prayers, for this reason I have been also writing my theory of Reconciliation of the Universe, which I am also calling Prayers for Reconciliation, not only because there is many prayers written in it, but also because it is my personal prayer to God Most High, in the hope that God hears my prayers and answers my personal requests. But I have to say that up to today God has not answered my prayers and there is sickness in my family; this sickness or illness sometimes I am afraid that is becoming worse, and for this reason I am praying again.
So, I ask you this when will God answer my prayer?
Am I not worthy to be heard from God what I need?
What is God waiting for, to answer my request?
Is it not enough the religious writings I have written and all the prayers that I've prayed?
To prove to you my dear readers that I have written already in Hub Pages many religious hubs, which I believe that they should be counted also as prayers to God, I am going to make a shortened list of these hubs hereunder including the links for you to check them out, so that you can judge me if you will, according to what I have written, of course there are also my religious posts in Blogger:http://manneedsgod.blogspot.com,
And also I am publishing this, http://manneedsgod.co.uk
I believe that all these religious writings should be counted as prayers. Anyhow even if God does not seem to answer my prayer, I will still pray God in the hope that one day he will answer my prayers and grant my earthly requests.
All this is because, man needs God and because, God is hope for those who need hope most and for this reason we pray.
List of religious hubs in Hub Pages
Here are two of my links about God works in mysterious ways in Hub Pages, since some of my readers and commenter pointed it out to me this:
Here are some hub links of my theory of, Reconciliation of the Universe including the heavenly messenger encounter:
Dear readers, I hope you have had time to read some of our Hubs, so that you could see what we mean and comment on them, or at least comment on our first question; Will God answer our prayers.
Anyhow with this hub we conclude part one of, Prayers for reconciliation, we will start part 2 right away and we might call it Prayers and discussions, just to give it a different name, of course part three will be called, Reconciliation of the universe.
May God bless us all?
