This is another way to send up prayer, it should be something families do together in the morning and at dinner, but most days in many homes we no longer eat together, an many times prayer goes up only at the thanksgiving and the christmas meals. BUT THERE IS AN OLD SAYING THE FAMILY THAT PRAYS TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER. Many kids eat breakfast at school many parents go to mickey dees or thru fast food lines eating while driving and forgetting to pray. Kids often do not wish to pray in front of thier classmates sitting down to eat at breakfast an lunch while in school. My mother would often when we were grown an all on jobs would sit pray for all of her kids meals when she sat down to eat or was taken out to lunch or to dinner. That shows how important she thought this was she an a younger sibling had an appendix rupture during a time before the freshness of foods and other contamination might occur today we read food labels we know nothing about but we all eat it. BUT this is a way of acknowleding GOD for the food we are about to eat. SHOWS OUR THANKS FOR HIS PROVIDING US THE FOOD, WE could have been born in a country where we would be searching for food, we get to go to grocery stores and restaurants, but GOD PROVIDES the sun the rain, many of us have never grown even a vegetable or milked a cow or plucked a chicken. In this financial situation many are dependent on food banks food stamps etc. AS A VOLUNTEER I donated time bagging the food an other food staples provided at one of these food banks ,an the women in charge mentioned foreseeing a loss of considerable donations seeing how great the need was. she suggested putting dried beans in jars. This summer there have been droughts in some areas and floods, the harvests will be impacted. MANY Times its migrants who work the fields consider our immigration laws suggested changes. Can you pledge to bow your head before to acknowledge HIM before eating? BIBLE tells us to humble ourselves before the might throne of GOD. MAYBE you can pray for others who forget to pray, or refuse to pray standing in the gap why not even for your kids. MY MOTHER has passed on now but this was a memory I DISCUSSED at her WAKE. TO me this was a great memory yes MOM I Was paying attention. SOMETIMES WE TEACH NOT SAYING A WORD JUST. GOD IS GOOD AN GOD IS GREAT.
In the lords prayer which is discussed in two separate Gospels, and scripture is confirmed in two or more places. So this prayer is confirmed. We read in scripture Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. But often when a verbal pryer or written prayers are sent out we often hare. "IF IT IS THEY WILL, AND THIS NOT APART OF THIS PRAYER THAT JESUS, taught his disciples and us. One writter who discussed this change in the quote says God will and does show what is his will and we can search for it and find it in the scripture for instance healing is his will. Therefore is we are praying something that is considered sin other than forgivenesss. This an extreme example, but for instance, if someone is praying for someones husband to leave his wife for them, this is definitely not Gods will, God ordained marriage its vows are found in Genesis, and it goes against one of the ten commandments "thy shall not commit adultry or even no fornication it being one of the seven abominations so depending on your marital situation. But often when we are praying for healing or circumstances for ourselves or others healing. We find that in scripture we have benefits in Chris much like you have some on your jobs, and when we say a prayer for someone as a group prayer two or more standing in agreement as in touching, its common to har this blurted out as soon as the request is made or later as an after thought, "if it be they will" pops out of the lips, in the midst of what would otherwise be a powerful prayer. NOW THAT YOU ARE BEING MADE AWARE OF THIS, START LISTENING. It is like a clause that makes the one saying the prayer fill, that if their prayer is not answered by God, then its not his will, for it to be answered, and not a matter of their having very little faith, and often no faith, and its often added right afther have prayed for healing for an individual or other requests for prayer. My belief is that "IF" Is not a word of FAITH. and has not business being a part of any prayer. So why is it said is it the enemy, the bible says sometimes we do not get answers because we pray amiss, is this an example of this, and certainly if we research the word, and find it to be sin. What JESUS SAID WHAT THY WILL BE DONE. So lets try praying in FAITH, AND SAY WHAT HE SAID. FAITH IS DEFINED AS A SUBSTANCE, AND WE CAN THANK HIM IF WE BELIEVE HE IS A PRAYER ANSWERING GOD. When you read the LORDS PRAYER, ITS A POWERFUL PRAYER. CATHOLICS pray it at least once during their mass. My mother also always said it before any prayer she would then make her requests known unto God afterwards, So why dont your try this, and see if you are showing at least a mustard seed of faith, or are you instead eradicating faith altogether protecting yourself and adding IF, AS A CLAUSE, you know just in case, the prayer does not get answered, not to make yourself ashamed, there is scripture that says that God will not let us be . Why not honor MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUS WHO SAID AT TEH WEDDING FEAST, where JESUS performed his first miracle, prior to his start of his time. Mary spoke to the familys servants and told them to do whatever he tells you to do." He told them to fill the jugs with water, and he turned the water into wine. This is a good thing for all Christians to read the word, and maybe even especially the red writing. But all of it is by inspiration of the HOLY SPIRIT. WHO JESUS said he would send after his ascension, and he tells us to pray in this manner. They will be done... its not about protecting our Ego, God does not need us to protect his name, its about faith, and honoring his word. The bible says in one place obedience is better than sacrifice. Having faith that God can do anything but fail. There is no failure in God. We are told in scripture in the new testament to pray to God in JESUS NAME, YES, however in this prayer Jesus prays to the father, but this does not eaken his influence as to his part as one of the trinity, he is still in heaven seated at the right hand of God, acting as our advocate. And the scripture says God loves to perform his word, and in another place it says his angels love to perform his word. So try it for yourself. Stop yourself, and cover someone eles prayer with faith if they lapse, causing the collapse of faith in their prayer, whenever you har the IF word, keep the watering doen of the prayer of faith from happening, and see if the prayer of faith can move mountains. MAYBE EVEN THEN JESUS WILL SEE YOU HAVE GREAT FAITH.
THIS IS TO REMIND MYSELF OF OTHER UPCOMING TOPICS, .. THIS IS THREE SEPARATE INCLUDING. THY WILL BE DONE, VERSUS IF IT BE THY WILL.
