Should We Pray?
Yes, we must pray to God the creator that Jesus spoke of. Praying is communicating with God, it is NOT a punishment, but it is an obligation. Praying is NOT just to reach our needs from God; praying is a supreme relation with our heavenly Father. Sinners and righteous must pray to God constantly; it is not evident to pray to God just when we need Him, we should pray to God in all circumstances, and in all occasions. God accept prayers at all the times. God is always ready to hear and to answer our prayers. We could pray at any time of the day, and at any time of the night, and at any day of the week, including Sabbath day = Saturday.
Moreover, we should keep the Sabbath Day holy. Sabbath is the day of rest, we should not work, and we should keep it holy. Moreover, we should keep all our days holy = sinless.
The temple of God was opened in heaven: and the ark of His testament was seen in His temple, and there were lightning, and voices, and an earthquake, and great hail, Revelation 11:19.
Jesus = (Yeshua) said to her: I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live: And every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die for ever. Believest thou this, John 11:25 to 26. The word "never die" means you will not go to hell, which is the second death, = "spiritually dead". To believe in Jesus you have to believe in his word, and his word is to obey God's Law, not Paul's, Matthew 5: 17 to 19.
Forgiveness is the fundamental foundation of love that leads us to a superior relation with God "Yahweh". .
In your prayer, be humble as a child.
Before you bow to pray to God, forgive people that sinned against you, in according for God to forgive your sins, and for your prayer to be answered, Mark 11:25.
Jesus prayed to God to raise Lazarus from the dead.
The passage about Lazarus reads: 38 Jesus = (Yeshua) therefore again groaning in himself, cometh to the sepulcher. Now it was a cave; and a stone was laid over it. 39 Jesus = (Yeshua) said: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, said to him: Lord, by this time he stinks, for he is now of four days. 40 Jesus = (Yeshua) said to her: Did not I say to thee, that if thou believe, thou shall see the glory of God? 41 They took therefore the stone away. And Jesus = (Yeshua) lifting up his eyes said: Father, I give thee thanks that thou hast heard me. 42 And I knew that thou hear me always; but because of the people who stand about have I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. 43 When he had said these things, he cried with a loud voice: Lazareth = (Lazarus) , come forth. 44 And presently he that had been dead came forth, bound feet and hands with winding bands; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus = (Yeshua) said to them: Loose him, and let him go, John 11:38 to 43.
Could we pray on Sabbath day?
Praying to God; helping and feeding the meek on Sabbath day is not considered working; it is helping, and it pleases God "Yahweh" also.
Jesus = (Yeshua) said: Have the faith of God. Amen I say to you, that whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be thou removed and be cast into the sea, and shall not stagger in his heart, but believe, that whatsoever he says shall be done; it shall be done unto him. Therefore I say unto you, all things, whatsoever you ask when ye pray, believe that you shall receive; and they shall come unto you. And when you shall stand to pray, forgive, if you have aught against any man; that your Father also, who is in heaven, may forgive you your sins, Mark 11:22 to 25.
Jesus = (Yeshua) said: For if you will forgive men their offences, your heavenly Father will forgive you also your offences. But if you will not forgive men, neither will your Father forgive you your offences, Mathew 6:14 to 15.
Jesus = (Yeshua) instructed us how to pray and we should obey his commandment.
And when ye pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites that love to stand and pray in the synagogues and corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men: Amen I say to you, they have received their reward. But thou when thou shall pray, enter into thy chamber, and having shut the door, pray to thy Father in secret: and thy Father who sees in secret will repay thee. And when you are praying, speak not much, as the heathens. For they think that in their much speaking they may be heard. Be not you therefore like to them, for your Father knows what is needful for you, before you ask him. Thus therefore shall you pray: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. Amen, Matthew 6:5 to 13.
Should we pray to the dead, or for the dead?
Protestant church prohibits people to prayfor the dead, and not to the dead, and not even to dead saints.
However, prophets, and including Jesus = (Yeshua) prayed for the dead to rise. So, why shouldn't we pray for the dead?
Jesus = (Yeshua) prayed to raise people from the dead. The prophet Elijah = (Elias) prayed to raise a dead person from the dead. Elisha = (Eliseus) = (Elishah) prayed to raise a dead person from the dead. The apostles prayed to raise people from the dead. The bible tells us an abnormal event that King Saul prayed TO the dead and not FOR the dead and asks a dead person to help him. The king Saul asked a woman that practice witchcraft to bring Samuel from the dead to take his advise concerning the Palestinians. And it happened that the dead Samuel came up from the earth and spoke to Saul and predicted that the Palestinians shall take over Israel and he shall die with his son, First Samuel 28:8 to 19. It is strange to read about such incident, how anyone could ask the dead for help. The Catholic Church allows such prayers, however, the protestant church doesn't. The protestant church contradicts its self, the protestant church removed 14 books from the Old Testaments, claimed that some of those books indicate prayers for the dead. However, this church didn't remove the book of "First Samuel" that speaks about praying TO the dead for help and predictions. The protestant church claimed removing those books through prayers, and with the help of the Holy Spirit. Such claim is not true because the Holy Spirit doesn't make mistakes. If the Holy Spirit helped this church to remove 14 books, why the Holy Spirit didn't tell them about the book of the First Samuel, and the "Song of Solomon" book that expresses Solomon's love's affaire with minors girls that their breasts didn't develop yet; and his love's affair on green bed, and his love's affair caressing his lover's breasts as two roses, Song of Solomon book. Did the Holy Spirit allow the protestant church to keep sex's book in the bible, or the protestant church kept it in the bible because it contains sexuality? If you believe that the bible is holy this sex's book must not be removed from the bible. If you believe that the bible is a history book, then you could place anything in it. If we are planning to pray TO the dead to get help, it means that God doesn't exist. However, God exists and He is in control, therefore, you shouldn't pray to the dead.
Bow your head to the ground when you pray to God, Exodus 34:8.
Donít be discouraged when bad things happened to good people.
Jesus = (Yeshua) says: As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten, Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock. If any man shall hear my voice, and open to me the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:19 to 22
Jesus = (Yeshua) said:
*Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find knock, and it shall be opened to you.
* For every one that asks, receives: and he that seeks finds and to him that knocks, it shall be opened.
* Or what man is there among you, of whom that have a son shall asks for bread, will he reach him a stone?
* Or if he shall ask him a fish, will he reach him a serpent?
* If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him, Matthew 7:7 to 11.
Jesus = (Yeshua) persist that we should pray to obtain our daily needs from our heavenly Father "God", which is in heaven.
Jesus = (Yeshua) says: And when he was come to the multitude, there came to him a man falling down on his knees before him, saying: Lord, have pities on my son, for he is a lunatic, and suffers much: for he falls often into the fire, and often into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
Then Jesus = (Yeshua) answered and said: O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? Bring him hither to me. And Jesus = (Yeshua) rebuked him, and the devil went out of him, and the child was cured from that hour.
Then came the disciples to Jesus = (Yeshua) secretly, and said: Why could not we cast him out?
Jesus = (Yeshua) said to them: Because of your unbelief. For, amen I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, remove from hence hither, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you. But this kind is not cast out but by prayer and fasting, Matthew 17:14 to 20.
* Jonah prayed into the fish's belly, Jonah 2:1 to 10. [Note: Jonas = (Jonah)]
* You can't ask God for credit if you love the one that loves you, Matthew 5:46.
* Jesus = (Yeshua) says: For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I in the midst of them, Matthew 18:18 to 19.
* Prayers and fasting, Matthew 6:5 to 18
