Atheists & Believers - Mystery of Prayer Revealed
I cannot imagine not believing in nothing at all....and the reason for this is not by indoctrination or teaching or influence either. As a child when my mother became paralysed from the neck downwards - I prayed that she would live, when I was told she would not survive. I prayed for help one time to be saved from danger - and the danger I was facing was removed.
One time I prayed with being stranded on a motorway with no petrol and I had forgotten my purse...Even if I could get to a petrol station I had no means to buy any. After turning on the engine a few times 'hoping that a miracle would come, all it did was flatten the battery. It was late, dark and cold outside. I was miles away from home. Putting my head in my hands, leaning on the steering wheel closing my eyes asking 'God please help me, with just enough petrol to get home'. ...
At the time I was 45 minutes away from home, and had to travel back 15 minutes to collect my bag that had also my house keys. Rationally the unexplained could not be justified. God sometimes shows the irrational way that he works is to remind people of the miraculous that takes place. Here I was on the A1 with a completely flat battery and no petrol at all. I sighed not knowing what to do next.
Turning on the engine one more time, it started straight away. And if you had seen my eyes watching the petrol gague go up almost half full of petrol - it was enough to get me back to Leeds Centre and to drive all the way home to Bolton. This is one experience that compounded my faith.
God wants to show us his power..not to abuse. So pray that God rightfully rules over all of us and we learn to respect the most high authority because there are so many people who do not.
The biggest wonders in prayer for me are the smallest miracles - just what I asked for arrived or came to me in some way for little or no cost whatsoever. It is for my personal learning to trust God.
The irony is that there are atheists who do pray yet do not realise it. They might dismiss the prayer if calling for help or a need. The One who bestows what they need does not reject this people. If anything it is through the sinners and non believers that he will reveal his truth again and again..
Just remember God is not a religion...Mystery is revealed in prayer and when prayers are heard and answered, we cannot ignore this happening. Once, twice, perhaps even many times...
In the Eastern Orthodox tradition, the personal relationship with God is encouraged and this is being known to be with Jesus Christ. It is personally known to be this way to preserve people. No man can say he has a right to rule over lands and people when he has not. No woman either.
Muslims are taught - submission to God. Unfortunately there are those who have not understood the message who seek to change the divine plan to serve the interests of very selfish man.
Both Muslims and Christians are taught to expect the return of Jesus Christ at any time. And as for the Jewish people - what we must never forget Jesus is Jewish. God preserved the Jews for his purpose and perhaps because there are those who recognise those who reject the authority of God.
One day someone who said they do not believe in God - others are open with being atheists, thinking about this I wondered...If people reject God, perhaps this is why they are placed with ruling overlords - even if they have been self appointed. One lady I respect was arrested and thrown into jail because she defended her son, while the law courts were deciding his future. Not good at all.
England where the Godless easily remove children from homes, traumatise people, injustice is the norm and police also lawyers have spoke of many innocent people in prison too. All I can say for the innocent in prison - they are witnesses to what is happening inside. And those who have incarcerated people for profit will pay the price eventually. Evil thrives when good people do nothing.
Instead of battling with the Godless - Pray. Seek Truth.
