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.
