I'm a newbie at christianity. Or at least at allowing God to help me through life, through prayer. I've noticed so many positive and good things happening to me and my family ever since that special day. Does prayer help you in life?
Prayer helps tremendously. God has all of the answers, although He doesn't always reveal them as quickly as I would like.
Yes, sometimes the biggest lessons we learn are from unwanted, sad, and just plain horrible situations. It took me 5 years to come to the place I am today. I know that life isn't always roses and it's not all God's fault, he's only guiding us, not telling us what to do, so we have to take responsibility for our situations as well. I've talked with you before and I know some of the things you're dealing with. Nobody deserves to go through sadness and grief and I'm sorry for what you're dealing with right now. God does have a plan for you and those around you. Maybe that can be a small bit of positivity for the future.
Thanks Jamie. I have seen God at work lately, even through some pretty unlikely agents!
depends on what your praying for. God always answers your prayers. Sometimes...he says no. I have been up and down all my life about God. I am recently beginning to think my problem is religion.
Yes prayers have helped my father who is suffering from chronic inflammatory lesion of the lung.
Poor Miss Jaime D. I hope your ready for whats eventually going to happen to this thread...you seem like such a nice person. I feel afraid that as a newbie christian you might not be ready for all that can and will be said....I truly hope you have a strong belief in yourself...
Don't worry Jamie... We'll take em together
Yes, I try and pray every day and totally thankful for all that I have in life. Praying and positive thinking, wonderful to have both in your life. You made a step in the right direction, kudos to you
i heard a rather reputable story once about a woman who actually saw prayer:
she was in a bad car wreck and unconscious, having an out-of-body astral experience during which she was floating above the accident site. she saw a strange arc of light going into her body and discovered its source was the body of a conscious woman sitting in her own car near the site. upon closer inspection, the first woman found that the second one was praying for her audibly. the 'unconscious' one surmised before returning to her body that the arc of light was very specifically the actual energy projection of what we call 'prayer'...
many people may dismiss this; however, from a spiritual/religious or otherwise scientific perspective, either...i find it highly worth the mention.
There are many different ways to pray as I set out recently in this hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Prayer-Hub---Ho … -Are-There
I personally work on the principle that the lord helps those who help themselves, so I prefer the practical prayer of analysing the situation and doing something positive about it. That isn't always possible of course, but when it is the act of doing something which points the issue in a positive direction tends to start a bit of mental and physical momentum in that direction.

eg the the people that didn't get healed when you prayed for them? Not enough faith? Hidden sin? God doesn't care? Answered prayers are really just luck anyway?

Does praying for peace help?Every since I was a child attending Catholic school I was taught to pray for peace and now as an adult I hear everyone call for prayers to end the violence and killing in the world. Do you think praying for peace helps?

Can you really change God's mind? If yes, then what does that say about God? If not, then why do it? And why ask others to pray for you or for someone who is perceived to be in need of prayer? I have asked this question to many religious people because I've never understood the purpose of things...

How do you remain patient when it seems as if everyone else is being blessed but you?There are several things that I've been praying about but at the top of my list, a new job. I know that the economy is bad but many of my friends have landed the job of their dreams while I'm still waiting on...
