Prayers for Guidance and Concerns
People need God and pray to God, in churches and anywhere
We need to believe and pray God, for God to andswer our prayer
I am praying God for guidance
Welcome to our article (21), Prayers for guidance and concerns
May God guide me to say the right things in these religious writings?
In this article, of prayers for guidance and concerns, we will start by writing something for our reader’s peace of mind, since it is our religious readers who are the true believer, that we need to look after more than any other readers, because they are the ones that follow us in our religious articles; we will then be talking about: I am praying God for guidance; what sort of guidance we need from God; what concerns me most while I am writing these religious writings.
Written for our reader’s peace of mind
To anyone who is a believer and believes in God, and also other religious beliefs; please read our Prayers for Reconciliation writings fully and also Reconciliation of the universe, before you pass judgment and quit reading; you see Prayers for Reconciliation is only a new idealistic theory, which through discussions with other fellow believer (and perhaps non-believers) is trying to find a way on how to link all existing religions together, in the hope that they might find harder to fight each other openly in the future. Reconciliation of the universe, is the theory that might be able to achieve just that, as it is being written in such a way that would be able to link all existing religions together, in such a way that they have a meeting point at the highest level; at least this is our aim and the reason why we are writing these religious articles.
But as we have said before, in religious matters we need to pray God to help us, so, let us talk about it hereunder.
I am praying God for help and guidance
In this sub clause, we are writing a prayer to God for help and guidance. But before we do that, I believe that we must explain to our readers in a more definite way, what is our intention about writing these religious articles. You see, we are writing these religious articles, and at the same time studying religions and religious issues, because we would like to find a solution to the existing religious problems of today. Therefore, we hope that one day we would be able to set a new way of seeing religious things that we are missing to see today, so that a new way of understanding religions is created and reached, for this reason I am praying God for guidance, since I am concerned about what is happening in the world in the name of God and religions, we all know that today there are two elements that are working against existing religions, one is the atheist (but this is not a real threat), and the other are the extremists (which are a real threat), our aim of course is that we need to find a way how to overcome these two negative groups. How we can achieve that we don’t know yet, but we need to find the way.
Anyhow, I believe that, if we believe in God, and we believe that God could answer our prayers, then we should all pray God for guidance and help, because only then God could help us, or at least he could make us feel better about our concerns, since we believe that God may help us to find a way out of our present religious problems, so let us pray; hereunder is written my own personal prayer.
Prayer to God
Our Father in heaven, to you I turn God Most High, and I start to pray with all my heart, my soul and my mind; I am praying for forgiveness of my sins, so that I would become spiritually clean, and then my prayers would be heard and accepted. Here I am praying for guidance and help, because I am concerned about what is happening around us; I am praying in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ thus; in the name of The-Father The-Son and The-Holy Spirit, I am praying and hoping that the ever present guiding force of the Holy Spirit on earth would guide and help me today; So that, I would be able to write these religious writing as humanly as possible according to your will, since this is what I am trying to do just now. Father, hear my prayer and guide me! Amen.
Now that I have prayed to God, I feel more confident that God will guide me, so, let us see WHAT SORT OF GUIDANCE WE NEED TODAY FROM GOD?
What sort of guidance we need, from God one may ask, 21
What sort of guidance we need from God
First of all, because we are writing religious issues we need God guidance, because that is the only way that I know, if we are going to write God’s things with an open mind, at the same time we would also feel that God accepts our writings, since we could be led to believe that God is inspiring us, just because we have prayed God.
Therefore, now that I have prayed for help and guidance to God, I feel more confident, so, let us talk about it. You see, we need God guidance and help, so that we would be able to find our own way about, on how to reason within our own minds, to find our own religious way; about what we are, what we were, and what we will be in the future in the eyes of God?
Now, let us explain to our readers how we see these religious issues. There are reasons to believe that life is an ever-changing stage, there are things that change suddenly and things that change very slowly, therefore we have to say that even our own beliefs are changing every day of our lives, even when we are not aware of that happening. Our own beliefs have got to be changing, because of all those things that are happening around us, so, as the time passes things change including our religious beliefs, you see for instance, as we grow older our minds would be thinking more and more about the afterlife possibilities, we may have to admit that this is just a normal human happening that everybody seems to experience. So, whatever I might be writing here as an old fellow could be more and more religious I suppose, since what I feel within my heart is that I long to find out if there are connections between this earthly life and the afterlife, since we are coming closer to the time when we are going to move on, which is when the time comes to pass away. I hope you see what we mean, because even with this issue we need God’s guidance and we need to believe in God.
We have to admit that we need God guidance everywhere, but at the same time we need to use our own mental imagination, and at the same time with our intelligent mind examine everything that we presently know today, and also try to learn as much as we can from existing record of common knowledge, so that, we would be able to understand many things if not everything that surrounds us.
So, let us start this process of self-examination right now.
So, let us look at the whole picture of everything that we know, or that we are supposed to know today, first of all it comes to my mind that life on earth has kept going on forever, or from the very beginning of times, and what we call time or times can never be stopped for a single moment to move towards the future because that is an impossible thing to do.
But what we call time, even though it is impossible to stop and to change in anyway within itself, it brings change to life and other things as it passes and moves on towards the future, so that, it is necessary for any form of life including our own life to try to adapt to the times that they happen to live in including our own life, in order to survive and thrive.
Therefore, any of these changes that the passing of time brings to us must be taken into consideration, no matter what they are even if they don’t seem important to us today; so that we could find a way to use them to our own advantage in the future, considering this position it becomes obvious to all of us, that we have to do something in order to adjust to our new position. Therefore, it would not be any good to stand firm in our previous practice or beliefs, whatever those practice and beliefs would be, even if those practice and beliefs have helped us many times before, and for many centuries or thousands of years the generations before us, anyhow, those religious beliefs will reach a point where changes are going to be necessary.
So, today we need to look closely at our practice of our religious beliefs, which we are using at the present times, and we should use our intelligence that God has given us, since it has been given to us from God for good reasons, so that we could look after ourselves diligently.
I believe that today, we the people of this planet earth have reached a very high standard of understanding, and that we are able to reason and understand facts, and other things much more diligently than what we used to do in the past.
We should feel lucky nowadays, just because we are living in a very fast progressing time. But there is also a downside to this progress, since progress means improvements over the past times, and improvements many times bring change of directions, therefore, we are the generation that will have to adjust to the present times more quickly than the previous generations, and then we should try to guide the future generations in the right directions.
As you know, here we are writing about religious issues, and we believe that today we need a religion that covers both people and spiritual things together; and at the same time bridges the old religions and the new religious ideas together.
How to start all this happening the right way is hard to say, but we must make a start somehow, otherwise we are going to fall behind the progress of our present times, so, here I am going to write something about this religious subject, even though I am concerned about how and what to write. This would be another reason why we need guidance from God, since we are writing religions and therefore God’s spiritual things.
Today there are several religions in the world
What concerns me most while I am writing
While I am writing these religious articles, there are many things that make me concerned; and at this point of time I am really concerned about what to write next, so, I feel that I better pray God for guidance, since I am trying to write God’s things.
In the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit, I am praying to you God Most-High, I am praying thee because I am concerned about what I should write here, so Father give me the courage to continue, if what I am writing here is according to your will, Father, hear my prayer and help me, amen.
WHAT CONCERNS ME MOST WHILE I AM WRITING
While I am writing my religious beliefs, I am concerned that I am not a trained writer, because I have never been trained as a writer; therefore, I believe that I will not be able to write down clearly enough in a few lines what I have in mind, so that the readers could understand at a glance what I mean; therefore, I have to try to explain myself properly in many ways, hoping that the whole subject becomes clear in the end, as I continue to write our religious articles of, prayers for reconciliation.
I have to say that, now I see that I am partly repeating many things, just because they might be a bit different from last time I talked about them, and this issue concerns me, because if there are too many repetitions all my writings will become boring to say the least. But it is so hard not to repeat religious issues, since religion is a subject that you must convince people, and what is more convincing than to repeat those things again and again in a different way, so, people soon or later may understand what you want to convey to them.
I am also concerned when I have to write a prayer, because prayers are going to be a large part of these religious writings of, prayers for reconciliation; here I feel that I have to start most times in the same way, as I want to concentrate at the highest praying level possible and pray to God Most-High, therefore all my prayers tend to start the same way.
I happen to be concerned about what people will say or think about me and my religious writings; Since I am not the best writer as I have already said above, I am only perhaps a half learned person, I am not a prophet, nor can I say that I have proof that what I am saying is definitely right, even if I personally have some personal evidence about the supernatural. So, everything put together is concerning me, I will continue to explain this in another chapter, when I need to explain it.
Now, let me explain a bit more about my beliefs and myself. I know that I have seen this angel from Heaven that has greeted me as the author of Reconciliation of the Universe; But at the moment of this special encounter, I was too scared to say even a word and I ran away from the angel; therefore, I don’t know whether the angel would have given me a spoken message from above and what that message could have been. Therefore, now I keep asking myself: What I am writing here, is it what the Heavens above want me to write? And if it is not, what should I do? Why my inner self is driving me to keep writing my own beliefs and therefore I must write them. Some of this inner force comes from my beliefs that I can see things through my mind eyes better that the average person can.
Let me explain, you see, just by looking at the religious world of today I feel concerned, because now most religion of the world disagrees with each other’s, and I am sure that if they don’t find a way out soon, on how to adjust and agree with each other they might end up fighting each other seriously. So, I believe that something needs to be done to prevent that happening, if we can. It is for this reason, that I am trying hard to find a way out, even if this is going to be only a suggestion or a hint, that the existing religions could use to reach agreement one day. But still I am concerned about my religious writings in case they might bring more harm than good.
What concerns me also is that people may not understand me, and my way of seeing religious things; here I mean the way that I see how God Most-High works, as in my beliefs I see that God Most-High is the collective positive life force of the whole universe, and therefore this includes all existing gods that we believe in, in the whole world, and how this life force could be connected to all existing religions, and also how all existing religions would be connected to God Most-High; this is what we are searching for and this is what we are going to write near the end of our religious writings.
Now, having said so much, I become concerned about what the world of learned religious people, and others learned people will say about these religious writings. So, I am writing next chapter for them. So, see you soon with my article, Religious writing concerns and prayers and what will those learned people say about these religious writings? See you soon.
May God bless us all?
