I told Glad about this but would like opinions. Jesus said “ My father and my God”. A man in my church group says he only ever prays to Jesus. Surely most prayers should be addressed to God. The Minister at the meeting did not pass comment. What are your thoughts as I think this man has got it wrong.

My thoughts are that we should pray to God the Father through Jesus.

2Anne sent me a pm and I answered her.....I think she would say it ok to place my answer here:

Glad wrote:There are people at my church that begin their prayers "Dear Jesus" I disagree with it but keep quiet about it. We should pray to God (Jehovah) in the name of His Son Jesus. It is like we are needing a mediator when we pray to His Son instead of directly to God Himself. But you will not change people when they are set in their ways. Jesus taught us how to pray in Matthew chapter 6 and I seriously doubt a lot of people just don't get it. By the way I did correct someone one time about it and it began an argument so from then on keep quiet. "

Went to Mass this morning, and the Priest prayed to God the father through Jesus the Son, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus told the disciples how to pray.
"Our Father"
He also said, "Whatever you ask in my name"
I always pray to God the Father in the name of Jesus.

I have been doing a lot of thinking since reading a Christian tract that said Hypnotherapy and Reincarnation are the works of satan.
I have decided that my commitment to God and Christ does not follow mainstream teaching from the Methodist Church I attend.
In Mathew 17  10-13 Jesus says Elias is  reincarnated  as John the Baptist and I believe we all have several lives or more as we need more than one chance to improve ourselves. The Druse Christians of the Lebanon look for reborn children in their sect and the early Gnostic Christians believed in reincarnation.
As for my Hypnotherapy being satanic this angers me as I was able to help some very frail and damaged people to recover and also stop people smoking. I do know that some hypnotherapists are into spiritism and bring such to their work which is wrong but we should not all be tarred with the same brush.
In my opinion we need to have open minds and not turn into judgmental bigots as this literature I read sounded like. Jesus came to me once some years ago and it was when I held these opinions but was very depressed due to circumstances. He said " I love you", so he is happy and so am I.

As for reincarnation, it's possible. God can do anything. That's what omnipotent means.
As for hypnotherapists, they can be very helpful, but those with ill intentions can be very detrimental.

I returned from a month in Spain today and there were problems with the flight. In the end we were two and a half hours late taking off. I was praying to God I can tell you and then when on the plane it sounded like the engines were labouring. It was all a bit scary but we are now home safe and sound so my thanks to the Lord for his love and mercy.
Was convinced I had left my pink fleece on the plane when we arrived but when I got home realised its yet another senior moment as my blue knit was in my case and the pink jacket in the wardrobe. Silly me.
Had a great time in Spain but in spite of the new tablets did not lose much weight but was eating out too much.
Must try harder.
I did miss you all but the ipad not very good at getting onto the Shout website. smwrr ckn

We're so happy to have you back, 2Anne. And that you got back safely!
As for prayer, it works!
The pink fleece may or may not have been at home. When I moved, there were a couple things I couldn't find anywhere! After searching high and low, I prayed about it, and the items appeared where I'm sure I'd looked. Did I overlook them before? Maybe. Maybe not. But I believe prayer helped.
I get help sometimes that I don't even ask for, and I give thanks.

2Anne, I missed you here and I'm glad you're home.
Vacations are great, but home is best.

I have had many prayers answered, but this one surprised me.
Once, on my way to work, I asked the Lord, "Dear God, I really need more money."
I got to work and in my check was a retroactive pay raise.

That is amazing Joyous. The Lord God knows our needs and his timing is always perfect. I try not to keep praying for trivial needs but know he hears if you are in trouble. Our God is a wonderful and loving God. Praise him on high :pray: shout2

I totally agree Joyous but sometimes prayers are answered by being given tools and ideas by the Lord that get us out of trouble. That sudden ‘ Eureka’ moment comes after prayer.

I had an odd experience with a friend who is agnostic and she suddenly needs the help of the Bible. I'm hoping this might turn her to Christ. Her name is Debbie. :bible: :pray:

I've not heard any more from Debbie but may phone her next week. She is a lovely person and has been treated very badly so if I can help her I will. Many thanks for all your prayers. :thank you:
