What are some verses in the Bible, that can help me to pray in front of others? I find that I am nervous around people.

Prayers are to God, not man. We need to approach Him with a sincere heart putting all distracting thoughts out of our minds. Focus on God, not man. We shouldn’t compare our prayers to others.

Proverbs 29:25  “The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.”

Psalms 118:6  […]

Is there a Christian pattern for prayer?

Prayer is one of the greatest privileges God has given His children. Prayer gives us communion with our Heavenly Father, through His Son Jesus. It provides us with spiritual strength and wisdom. Prayer is not only a privilege, but essential to our Christian growth. As the Apostle Paul instructs, “pray without ceasing” ( 1 Thessalonians […]

I have been under attack of an enemy for several years. I have prayed and fasted and is like God did not hear me. What should I do?

Are you sure God didn’t hear you?

None of us are worthy of God’s love, not a single one of us, but He gives it to us anyway. In fact, He LOVED us BEFORE we even thought about coming to Him! (1John 4:19) Don’t get so depressed or discouraged that you feel He has given up […]

Will God listen to my prayers because I lost faith for years?

Those that have said these things to you may be quoting John 9:31,“Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.”

Please realize that these are not the words of Jesus but the words of the Pharisees.

Let’s turn to the teachings […]

Can you explain the meaning of the prayer of the Lord?

This beautiful, well-known prayer gives words to the sentiments of our hearts. Just before the prayer, in Matthew 6:7, 8 (NASB), Jesus says, "And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetitions as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words." Thus we know that Jesus did […]

When I die it has been said that someone can pray me into heaven. Is that true?

First, let's consider the options the Bible offers in regard to life after death.  (All scriptures quoted are from the King James Version Bible.)

If Adam had not sinned, he and his descendants could have lived for ever on a perfect earth.  After Adam received the sentence for disobeying God, "…for dust thou art, and unto […]

Lately I have felt disconnected from God, and I am wondering if there is something I have done. It seems He does not talk to me anymore, and it worries me.

God’s main way of “talking” to us is through His word. Many have claimed to literally hear God speaking to them but at times it can be contradictory to what His revealed word says. The Apostles and others who wrote the New Testament encouraged us to study His word. We are not to expect to […]

I want to know some specific prayers and directions in the Holy Bible that will guide, protect and save.

I cannot give you any specific prayer as all prayer must come from the heart of the one praying. In a group we can say, “Amen” to another’s prayer and join with them in their prayer, but when we pray alone, it needs to come from our own heart.

There are no magic words to say. […]

My children and wife have been hurt by the pastor. So I have prayed to God and asking him if there is a way I can start a praise and worship service with my family. Which would be the best way to do this?

Hurts and offences are never easy to deal with, and they become especially painful to us when they are directed (whether intentionally or not) at those we love.  The fact that you and your family love going to church is a wonderful blessing!  Each of you, no doubt, has some very special friends that you […]

Besides God and Jesus, who else should we pray to?

Let's first look at some instances in the Bible where a person tried to worship a being other than God or Jesus.  (All references are to the New International Version Bible.)

While receiving the Revelation of Jesus Christ on the Isle of Patmos, the Apostle John was apparently so overcome with thankfulness, love, and awe that […]
