Does encouraging prayer forms of other religions violate the integrity of the Christian Nurse?
Or, are we guilty of cultural imposition if we maintain our values, beliefs and practices as we pray for those of another faith?
We should pray for those of another faith. Jesus tells us to do these things together: Preach the gospel, cast out devils, heal the sick, and cleanse the lepers.
don't encourage them to pray to Buddha or St. Whoever or burn the candles from aisle 5 at the grocery mart.
Tell them that the God of Abraham holds the keys to death and the grave and that JESUS gave authority to those who believe in Him.
We now live in a pagan, corrupted land. So did Daniel, Jeremiah, and many of the prophets (major topics for them). They did not encourage any idol worship. They warned that we need to serve the Lord, and they all, in addition to their watchman duties, foretold of the 1st and 2nd comings of Jesus.
The Word is very clear on other religions: we should not participate, and should not marry non-believers (their pagan ways corrupted even King Solomon). It is we who Jesus gave the power to bind and to loose... When you say something is okay... by passively allowing it without comment, or by encouraging it, then YOU release it using your own authority.
So, do not encourage prayer to other than: Jesus/Holy Spirit/Father in Heaven
I believe prayer is essential to helping people understand they are in a relationship with God. If that means they pray differently, so be it. I don't like listening to people pray for a long time basically saying the same thing over and over. It is just a personality thing. If they are praying in a different way, or if they are praying to another form of God, then simply pray with them. Pray in your head or your heart and pray the way you are most comfortable. Pray knowing that God is listening to you no matter what you say or how you say it. God is more than we can imagine, he can handle a little out of the box prayer.
If you do pray to the God you know and believe answers prayer, how effective will your prayers be? I do not see anything wrong in praying to my God in Jesus' name for a moslem. Prayer is especially a personal thing that is done mostly in private, so it should not disturb or upset anyone.
I'm afraid so. I think that violates the First Commandment "Thou shall not have any other gods before Me."
Praying for those of another faith, by invoking the name of the Father, and Son, is one of the best things a nurse can do for her patients.
Now, encouraging those of another faith to pray to a false-god is doing them a terrible disservice as well as selling them false hope.

How To Pray A Powerful Prayer That Opens Closed Doors?
by TahoeDoc7 years ago
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...

Has praying to God ever help you? Has your prayers every been answered?
by Person of Interest6 years ago
Those who wish, usually fail. Those who act, usually succeed. In other words, slackers pray and doers do. Which are you?Do you pray (wish) for something to happen? Or do you get out there and try to make it happen?...
by Baileybear7 years ago
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?
by Cat3333 years ago
When the Holy Spirit directs us to pray for a lost person, the healing of a sick person, or for any need, we pray confidently. But should we claim a soul for Christ or pray for the healing of someone if we've not heard...
