Prayer Series: Why Do We Pray?

What Is Prayer?
Is prayer the language of God? Is it just a belief, a tradition? Is it an expression of faith?
Why Do We Pray? For Christians, there are four reasons why we pray: to ask for something; to ask for forgiveness; to thank God; and to praise God.
How Do We Pray? There are four modes of prayer: colloquial (just like conversational); ritual (pray-ers follow a standard form such as the celebration of a Holy Mass); devotional (prayers written for private devotions or communal recitations); meditative (also contemplative, which is listening to God).

Christians practice Lectio Divina (Divine Reading), which is done in four steps: lectio, meditatio, oratio, contemplatio; or read, meditate, pray, contemplate. It is a form of prayer based on the Holy Scriptures that started in the 3rd century as taught by St Ambrose to St Augustine. Similar to Lectio Divina is St Ignatius's Examen. Here's a step-by-step Lectio Divina.

What You Missed In the Law of Attraction

Perhaps, you've seen the movie "The Secret." It amazed you and you tried it; but then, it didn't worked.

This talk by Gregg Braden answers what is missing in the "The Secret" or maybe what "The Secret" has not told us. What is good about Braden's talk is that he married science and religion. In other words, what science and religion or spirituality is saying is one and the same.

Here's an excerpt of his talk on YouTube.

If You Believe

The Holy Bible speaks of many secrets. If you could believe ordinary and wealthy people who speak of law of attraction, cosmic ordering, etc, why not believe in God or the prophets? The Bible is a written document authored by wise men of the early centuries. Books about getting rich and other self-help books were written by the men and women of today who wanted to share their experiences about the law of attraction and related subjects. Most of them believe in God; and believe in the importance of believing in God. For Christians, Jesus is God. For non-Christians, Jesus is a prophet. For non-believers, you can look at Jesus as an ordinary man of wisdom who lived 2000 years ago. The Bible says that when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, he said ~ If you believe, you will see the glory of God.

Secret of Prosperity ~ Be Generous Genuinely

You have heard
To Give is To Receive It is in Giving that You Receive When you Give, expect Nothing in Return The More You Give, the More You Receive Whoever said these words may have experienced in their lives that the more they give, the more they receive.
God Bless A Happy Giver But how do you give? When you give, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. It means that you shouldn't publish, promote, and boast the charity and generosity that you have done. In short, keep it to yourself. Keep it a secret because
Your Heavenly Father who sees what is kept secret will reward you. Be a genuine giver. Do not give for the purpose of expecting something in return. Do not give for the purpose of publicity and for the purpose of lessening your taxes. JUST GIVE IN SECRET #BeGenerous

Smell Money - Manifest Money Series # 1

I've heard so much about LOA-law-of-attraction brouhaha. I don't know if it has ever been true or proven really. Neither I could prove it for the simple reason that I don't know how to do it.

In another perspective,  I don't think this so called LOA gurus will ever tell the truth or the so called secret. Bottom line is that if you want to know the "secret", you have to buy their books. Oh, yeah! Nice marketing.

If I knew how to do it, I would tell everything to everyone, so to speak, without you buying any book.

Anyway, I'm a writer and what I do is research. I'm a bit geeky that I'd rather read operation manuals than novel books. In fact, at home, there's a complete series of Harry Potter novel books. I opened the last of the series, which is ... I don't know what title was that ... perhaps "Harry Potter..." That after reading the first paragraph of chapter 1, I jumped – a high jump, indeed – to the last chapter to read the ver…
