I have often been asked, when is a good time to pray the Rosary ?. My answer is while driving. The "RING ROSARY" is perfect. It is small and can fit on your finger and will not interfere with your driving. You can purchase a Ring Rosary at any religious store or on eBay and they are very inexpensive.
Pray to the Blessed Mother---often
GOD BLESS !
PS: I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Not that I've had rosary beads since I was kid, and not that I ever really used them (and no offense to anyone who does); but the beads come in three-in-a-group and ten-in-a-group. Each bead represents a prayer. The groups of ten and three represent the same prayers. It's just kind of a way for people to keep track of x number of each prayers, and once they've gone through the beads they know they've said that x number of prayers.
I think I've seen something similar in other religions, with people using something other than beads to "count" the number of prayers they do.
Each bead on the rosary represents a prayer and you can keep track of the number of prayers you have said.Thanks for your reply
Matthew 6:7 "And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles [heathens] do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words."
One-upping again to prove a contentious point of doctrine between you and Catholics? But how could this be? They aren't heathens, are they?
I thought finding fault with others is supposed to be against Christian principles.
Don't get me started. The fact that the Pope changed the holy Commandments of God is just a start: where's the second one about "graven images"? It was taken out and the first commandment split into two? I have no more to contend; one's faith is personal and each will be held accountable to the Lord's Word.
If you have no love in your heart for your Christian brothers and sisters, how good of a Christian can you be? That's my point. You find fault because you think you're better, when in actual fact, you are a beggar of salvation just as they are.
That's all I have to say.
I must correct my posting, in that the Pope took out the second commandment of God and split the 9th into two. By the way, a faithful Catholic who prays the Rosary every day, will in a lifetime say "Hail Mary" well over 1,000,000 times. And yet, not one mention is made of the name of Jesus Christ in the Rosary. Just think about that.
I'm completely neutral on the point of prayer. The contention lies between your brand of praying and Catholics. It just seems rather pointless to say one way is incorrect, if it's sincere. That's all. I just find religion so disheartening when it pretends to be so very much.
I love it. Judah's daughter is living breathing proof that there is not a god and religion is evil. She goes against the word of god and attacks all who do so if they do so in a way that she does not agree with.
Love it. She has proven to me that atheism is the best choice. LOL - Her prayers are better than the papists? LOLOLOLOL
Great stuff. I am sure Satan is very pleeeeezed with her.
This sounds like another case of my God is better than your god, cause your god is stupid!
Many religions/faiths claim to follow the same "God". In this sense, Catholics and Protestants do. The religious or doctrinal aspect of the practices are what is contended by each to the other. Doctrines of men divide, and Protestants are just as guilty of following the teachings of men as anyone else. Unity comes from obedience to the Word of God, reasoning with each other, and operating in love. Brethren in the Lord are protective of each other and are burdened if we feel one is being led astray by the doctrines and/or traditions of men.
Correcting other people's mistakes because you are right? How loving is that? LOL
That has not caused any Konflikt has it Ms. Preacher Woman?
Once again - thank you preacher woman, for showing me there is not a god. Great stuff. Do it again. Correct the Catholics for getting it wrong. You have it right - same god - slightly different doctrine that did not result in wars and millions of murders.
I love it when religionists prove their beliefs are nonsensical.
I know you've had this scripture shared with you before, Mark ~ Psalm 14:1 "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good." Surely, you believe in some "god"; you quote God's Word when it can be used against women...(i.e. your forum called "Ladies - why are you going against the word of god?") and you've said you have no sin. 1 John 1:8 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." Why not believe in the God Who gave His Word and figure out what it means?
Aww - Vicarious insults that you did not say yourself. Well done, Ms. person who hides behind various fake user names to attack others.
No. I do not believe in a god.
I see you quoting the Old Testament as "scripture" now though - which is exactly where you will find your instructions about women preaching.
How odd that the new law that Jesus bought only applies to women preachers and the old Psalms stand unbroken.
Thank you for proving that the bible is garbage and can be made to say anything I want it to. Satan must love you very much.
Psalms apply - so does the invocation against women preaching.
Why do you hate so much?
And why do you go against the word of God?
It's not I who hates. God hates abominations. We are under the New Covenant, by the way. If you want to get into debates over Covenants and women preaching, come on over to my hubs. That's off-topic to this forum.
Sorry - not interested in reading any more of your hatred.
Why do you hate so much?
Love it that the old scriptures apply to atheists but not women preachers though................
And I am not very impressed with your feeble god who hates. Dear me. What a sad pathetic useless god.....
You sure you are not just making that up? Your god hates? The human emotion - hatred?
Wow. What a useless POS.
Proverbs 3:34 "Though He scoffs at the scoffers, Yet He gives grace to the afflicted."
Romans 9:13 “Just as it is written, ‘JACOB I LOVED, BUT ESAU I HATED.’”
Romans 12:9 "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good."
Hebrews 1:9 "You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy."
Revelation 2:6 [God to the church in Ephesus] “Yet this you do have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.”
Yes - I understand that you think your pathetic god is capable of a petty human emotion - hatred.
Thank you Judah's daughter/carrie bradshaw/whoever else you need to hide behind to preach against the word of god.
Laughable really. God hates... How sad.
The name Jesus is in the Hail Mary. Almost all the Mysteries of the rosary are about Jesus, and the Rosary calls for 6 of the Lord's Prayer, too.
The second Commandment was never removed, but is considered by Catholics as part of the 1st Commandment. We don't carve statues for the purpose of worshipping them. You may want to fact-check by asking a real Catholic before spreading untruths about us.
Why take it out as is written? That's my question. When I walk into a Catholic church I see statues everywhere of "saints", paintings and names of "saints" and Catholics praying to these "saints", asking them to find something that was lost, etc. Even praying through saints makes them a mediator. The Bible says Jesus is our only Mediator. I'm not Catholic and wouldn't participate in such things ~ as I said, faith is a matter of personal conviction. I couldn't do these things; it would feel very wrong to me.
Thank You so much for your information. God Bless !!
With all due respect -The Rosary is an outward meditation on THE LIFE OF CHRIST from the Annunciation to His ascension into Heaven......it is all about Christ!
Please get informed before you spout such nonsense.
It consists of The Lord's Prayer and Hail Marys .
The Hail Mary ...'Hail Mary full of grace ,the Lord is with thee''....sounds fairly biblical to me!!
Why not pray, "Hail Jesus full of grace"? Just my humble opinion. What has Catholicism to say regarding Isaiah 8:19? "should not a people consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?" I realize you know the saints are alive in heaven, but they have passed on. It's obvious mediums can consult dead spirits (even in the case of calling up the prophet Samuel - 1 Sam 28), but it is forbidden in scripture. Saul wanted to hear from the LORD through Samuel and was killed for doing this.
Uh... praying interferes with driving. Duh.
Why would you need to use a Rosary, and why would you need to pray during driving? Why don't you just concentrate on being a skilled and safe driver. That is what will save you, not some outdated superstitious nonsense.
What can I say? Playing with your ring while driving sounds dangerous. Not to mention unhygienic!
LOL This definitely will ensure that the population susceptible to praying while driving will decrease over time as a result of higher accident rate. Darwinism, natural selection, you know...
Misha, if I were a gambling woman, I would bet that chewing gum while walking is more dangerous than a meditative type of prayer that calms the nerves, heightens concentration, and perhaps reminds people to think "How would Jesus want me to drive?" while driving.
If everyone prone to aggressive driving would just pray the rosary instead, the roads would be much safer.
And if you've ever driven through the northern Rockies during a blizzard at night, you can't blame some drivers for getting into the habit of persistent and fervent prayer while driving.
Thank You Valerie F.. Well said ! You hit the nail right on the head.
GOD BLESS !
Well - I am all for it. The more Catholics that think they can concentrate on the road whilst praying with a Rosary the better as far as I am concerned. Especially in bad weather in the Rockies.
ALL CAPS IS SHOUTING !!
Yeah, but we know that your reservations against genocide do not apply to religious people and what you imagine to be a great way for us all to die.
And what do you know about prayer not heightening concentration? What are the documented rates of automobile accidents caused by prayer?
I have no idea about documented rates of automobile accidents caused by prayer. But - if you think praying with a Rosary (which I understand takes one hand) while driving along a tight mountain pass in the snow is a good thing - I am all for it.
Wow - look at that - - we agree on something.
Not sure where the genocide thing comes from because I don't recall saying I had no reservations against the genocide of religious people.
I leave that to the competing religions. The Catholics have a good score there don't you? How many millions of people of other faiths have you murdered? Do you keep count or are there "too few to be worth recording"?
You think it's a good thing because you think it'll kill me, which shows your lack of regard for other people's lives right there and proves your hypocrisy. Shouldn't your regard for human life be better than that?
As for me, I've never murdered anyone, nor have I ever supported actions that could contribute to anyone's untimely demise- unlike you, who think praying while driving could kill people and favor it for that reason.
Anyway, praying the rosary doesn't require taking a single hand off the steering wheel. People spend more time mining their noses while driving than it takes to switch from one bead to the next, and the use of beads isn't even required for praying. They're just tools to help keep count. I also know what's on my mind when I pray and drive, and I would hypothesize that people who pray while driving drive more safely and courteously- as often we pray for the needs and concerns of other drivers as well as ourselves.
But - praying doesn't actually achieve anything outside of yourself does it?
Your hypothesizing is just an attempt to justify your ridiculous belief that praying using a Rosary while driving a mountain pass in the snow is a good idea. Which I fully support you in doing.
Guess I can't win. If I had told you you were insane and not to do it, you would be using a different argument against me.
Courteous is not a word that comes to mind when I think of you so excuse me if I don't give your statements and credence. Any way - I thought you were signing up to kill people for the oil companies? I mean defend my right to free speech against the encroaching barbarian horde.
You fully support me dying in a car crash, and on the same thread, you wonder just what people hate about your behavior.
If you told me I was insane to pray when I feel my life is in danger, I would do what all reasonable people do and ask you to show proof. You have none, whereas I know for myself that I am calmer and more alert to what's around me when I'm praying- and we need calm, alert people on the roads. It's not like we have to pray with our eyes shut or anything stupid like that.
And you don't know squat about my motives. I was actually hoping to get on with a medical detachment not for the oil companies. But of course, in your attempt to get in a personal attack at any cost, you've hijacked the thread.
I fully support your right to pray using a rosary while driving along a mountain road in the snow.
Good for you. This is part of your belief system - in which case I would be wasting my time trying to talk any sense into you. Correct? Still - maybe JD can show you how wrong it is to use repetitive prayer like the heathens do?
Yeah, and you fully support that because you think that would kill me and perhaps take out more religious people with me.
Putting my safety and the safety of others at unnecessary risk is not part of my belief system. But praying while driving does neither, and so whether or not it's nonsense, it's none of your business.
driving through the Rockies at any time takes some serious focus!
I remember just looking at how far down it was or concentrating on the vehicle in back of me! :
Many Thanks rebekahELLE for your responce. God Bless !
It is a request that Mary pray with and for us.
I have a real, not intended to start a fight question. I was raised that you can only pray to God. Praying to Mary or with beads or anything like that, is idol worship.(I really dont want to get into it, but the religion I was raised in was pretty confusing..and if you asked questions in meantyou were "bad") Where in the Bible does it say to pray to Mary or to ask for Mary to pray for us?
We worship only God. We ask Mary and the other saints as well as our living friends to pray for us. We "pray" to them in the medieval sense, when "pray" was synonymous with "ask" rather than with worship. I agree that worshipping Mary is idolatry, but we don't worship Mary, so no sweat.
The Bible commands all of us to pray for each other, so that goes for Mary, too. And there is nothing in the Bible prohibiting you from asking anyone to pray for you.
Beads are not idolatry either. We don't worship them, They just help us keep our place, rather like bookmarks in a Bible.
