Our Day return guarantee still applies. Why we have to pray and how to pray were explained clearly. Beautiful instincts right there Reply. Thank you for taking the time to explain what "Prayer" should be like. Just wanted to point out that the "Angels ascending up and descending down" as stated by the bible is correct. For how can Angels ascend up if they had not descended down in the first place? The Word of God is divine, no matter what man thinks.
Michael Gagnon My name is Deborah-Dale and I was raped as well by different people growing up, sexually molested and fondled. Where was God, looking at me and I not knowing. Did I blame him? Actually, no. What I blamed him for is my life after, the effect of the cause.
I'm saved now and love him more than anything. If God could have, he would have come down himself and save me, but that is not how God works. He works through man for us to get saved from such ills. It is natural to hate and blame God, why, I really don't know, but we must not. If you give him your hurt, I promise you life.
God really loves you and will turn the bad around for good. Man sins, God cannot. Our parents are to blame but we have to forgive them. They did not protect us through prayer so doors were left open for the enemy to come in. As you forgive, God will show you why it happened and your heart will break witj such pity for them.
The Meaning of Prayer - Prayer
Let it go. Someone needs your help in this same situation. Dont delay. Praying Reply. Michael in Montana.
My heart cries out for you, you are angry understandably. Nevertheless, you must forgive your assailant. There's no healing without forgiveness. God did not rape you and He loves more you SO much. Nobody should be forced to go through that. But regarding prayer, at this point sometimes the best prayer is for the ability to put the past behind us and not let it drag us down for the rest of our lives.

Why would anyone pray to a God that doesn't answer, beg? Begging is not praying, it's begging for something we don't deserve or need. Through out my life, in part where I was being raped at the age of 6 I prayed for it to stop and my prayers were never answered. Praying for different parents were never answered. What God? I'm disappointed in me, my life, and my whole existence, in today's world there is no love.
If there is a god! Something just ain't right, is this what he had in mind? It forces me to be far more authentic and real than I would be if left to my own devices. Take, for example, the General Confession from the morning and evening offices:. Almighty and most merciful Father; We have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us.
But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare thou those, O God, who confess their faults. Restore thou those who are penitent; According to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, To the glory of thy holy Name.
It hauls me into the open light of day. Nor will it let me ignore or wish away my captivity to,and culpability with,in as a consequence of my fallen human nature. This prayer c ompels me to tell the truth about myself and my life. T he prayer book also liberates me from the tyranny of my subjective feelings.
Its words bear me up and carry me.
The prayer book also takes me beyond the shallow waters of my experience and shoves me out into a deeper current in which I am not the end-all be-all of everything. Left to my resources, my prayers tend to not get very far away from home. I end up focusing on my uncertainties, my thanksgivings, my ambitions, my immediate family members and friends.
Without some kind of help, I find it very difficult to think about much else. The prayer book teaches me that Christian prayer is communal prayer, and the Christian life islived in an ecclesial community. When I read the daily offices I am not merely an individual sitting down to have a quiet time of devotions with God. I may beby myself in a physical sense, but I am far from alone. I know that the very words I utter are also rising from the lips of countless others around the world.
As well they have risen in the past and will yet rise in the future from countless more. The boundaries of space and time become thin in these prayers. As Bishop Jeffrey Lee points out,.
