Will God Answer Our Prayers?
Moses meets God as a burning bush
Does God answer our prayers?
Welcome to my article (25), Does God answer our prayers?
May God guide and help me to say the right things?
Dear readers, I have written many religious article in Hub Pages and in other public sites, but I must say that we all have our doubts during our lives; one of these doubts is about the existence of God, another one is about if God answers our prayers. I must add here that I believe in God, even if the God I believe in, is different from the God that most of us Christians believe in, now next question is, does God answer our prayers, when we pray?
You see, I am praying God every day of my life; I pray God with our Christian traditional prayers, like the sign of the cross followed by The Lord prayer, and then other prayers; I pray God also with my own prayers that I have written, I pray God and hope that God answers my prayers by granting my earthly request. I have written several prayers in these religious writings and one of them is written here under; now the question is. Does God or will God answer my prayers?
Let me explain, today we are not asking God to do something out of the ordinary; because we are not like the Jews that wanted Yahweh their God to help them, so that they could reclaim their Promised Land that they left when they went to Egypt; we are not like the Muslim people that want their God Allah to help them conquer the entire world.
You see, we are only praying God to help us in our daily struggle and health issues. We imagine our God to be a benevolent God that helps anybody that turns to him and prays. So, let me write a prayer that I pray after the traditional prayers.
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 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; Father hear my prayers and help us, amen.
I have prayed God many times, but God seems to ignore my prayers, so, my family problems go on and they never seem to end. So, I start thinking that it is unlikely that God answers our prayers, I cannot think of any other excuse and I believe that I am worthy in God’s eyes, because I pray and write religious issues. Okay there might be an issue because I do not go to church on Sundays. But I don’t go to church on Sundays, because of this illness in my family, so, I must stay put at home. Sometimes I think, if God wanted me to go to church on Sunday, then God should have made it easier for me to go to church.
Dear readers, I need to be more patient and refrain to criticize God, since it is risky to criticize God, as we know God is God and we are supposed to accept anything from God, even if it makes us suffer, because there can be other reasons why it is so. But I believe that if we pray God, then we deserve to be heard and answered from God, otherwise why we pray and believe, and accept whatever it comes to us because it is God’s will, here I want to ask our readers?
I must say that in my mind, heart and soul, there is this understanding that goes on like this; if there is 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 answer our prayers according to what we deserve, otherwise we will not believe in God anymore. So, we come back to our first question; will God answer our prayers? This is what we will most times wonder but let us continue to look for an answer.
Monster of the end of the world
Looking for an answer to our prayers
There are days in our lives, when things go the wrong way, but nothing is more frustrating than when somebody is sick, whether it is oneself or a member of our family. When these sick family members are sick for a long time we start to despair, because even to doctors cannot find a way to make them well; so, the only thing that is left for us to do is turn to God and pray. So, we pray God with all the strength that is in our heart, and we believe that if we do that and have faith in God, then, God may answer our prayers. So, we pray God with great faith, hoping that God will answer our prayer and make us well again.
So, when we need help from God, we pray God with faith, but, 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, does God answer our prayers?
I am asking this question several time, because I want to know, if there is anyone who has proof or at least feels that God answers our prayers in any possible way.
You see, I don’t know any more what to believe today, I have prayed to God for a long time for help, but God ignores my prayers. Not only I have prayed God many times every day of my life, 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 is a bit different from the main religious stream. Anyhow, I have done this in the hope that it may help religions to survive in the future, so, I feel that whatever I write in these religious writings, it is like praying God all the time; but God does not take any notice of that either. Perhaps God has more important things on his mind, because people believe and do different things all the time, like the following issues that go around today.
So, let us see what is happening in the world, that can keep God busy and forget about my personal prayers. You know, some people believe about the end of the world, as it is written at the end of the Bible; so, there is going to be the end of the world soon; this time we even have a date. Do you believe that it can really happen this time and the end of the world will be the 21st of December 2012 as they have forecast? Is this event really going to happen? My guess is that we just don’t know. Perhaps it is a bit like asking, if God answers our prayers.
So, I am going to say 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. You see, if religions are modified then it marks the end of some religious things and the beginning of something else, so that, we can say 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.
Prayers and observations
While I am writing this article, I pray God about my personal problems, I pray God with great faith, hoping that my prayers will be answered, so, I pray God thus:
My Lord God, Almighty merciful Father, I pray you with all my heart, my soul and my mind, hoping that in your mercy, you would forgive me all my life sins and make me clean of any impurities that may affect my soul, so that, I am spiritually clean and worthy to pray and my prayer could be answered. Today I am praying because there is sickness in my family, and this worries me and my family, therefore, I am praying with all my heart, my soul and my mind, hoping that in your mercy, you hear my prayer and help me.
Now, this is not the only prayer that I pray to God, because I pray many other prayers, in the hope that God hears my prayers and help us.
But even though I have prayed God many times, God does not answer my prayers; but I continue to pray God. So, even when God does not answer our prayers, we still pray God. It is like having to do the last possible thing that could help to solve our problems, and thus we continue to pray.
When we need help pray our God
Praying God for an answer
Now, as I have said, I have been praying God for an answer to my personal prayers, for this reason I have been writing Prayers for reconciliation with many prayers written in it, then my theory of Reconciliation of the Universe, because they are 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, the way I wish God would answer.
So, this family sickness worries me; I am afraid that can become worse, and for this reason I am praying, and I will continue to pray, because at least I feel that I have done something that could help. You see, I need at least some hope, and God is hope for those that need hope most; so, I continue to pray God, and therefore I ask:
I ask you this when will God answer my prayer?
Am I not worthy to be heard from God about 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 that I have written in Hub Pages many religious articles, which should be counted as my prayers to God, I am going to make a shortened list of these articles including the links. 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 these religious writings should be counted as prayers to God Most High. Anyhow, even if God does not answer my prayers, I will still pray God in the hope that one-day God 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, even knowing that God may not answer our prayers.
