In the past, I have created the habit to ask “What would Jesus do?” or strike up a conversation with god about a difficulty that I have had in life. I pray in church with others and sometimes myself. But rarely do I set aside specific timeframes for private meditation in God’s presence. I have done this in the past and found it highly rewarding but I have since fallen out of the habit due to College’s busy schedule. Nevertheless, I feel that my life would earn a great deal of balance if I began to really sink down into a private prayer life.
Some have said my actions have inspired the people down the road to fight for the freedom, but me I’m just a dreamer who has one simple belief that every man should be able to profess their faith without fear of persecution.

Because of the consistencies between these prophets’ strongly emphasized messages, they would add two commandments to the original ten: Repent to the Lord your God, for He will show mercy and compassion to your iniquities and let your actions be filled with good intention and conscious, for any action without any meaning behind it is useless. The first new commandment, repent to the Lord your God, for He will show mercy and compassion to your iniquities, is a common theme found in the prophetic books of the Hebrew Bible. The book of Hosea, for example, is “designed to call upon Israel to return to the Lord” (New Interpreters’ Study Bible, Sweeny 1256). Hosea uses his marriage as a symbol to the people of Israel to reveal that they are straying away from the God that created them. Hosea’s most general message to the people of Israel lies in repentance, highlighting that the answer to any problem is to turn back to the Lord.
The Main Purpose of Prayer The main purpose of prayer for Christ was that the Father may be glorified in the Son. The main purpose of our prayer should be the same, that the Father be glorified. If we ask anything in prayer to glorify God, it will be done. We are here on this earth to be a light in the darkness and show the world God. The best way to be that light is to pray the God through us is glorified.
His theology of contemplative prayer contains the man’s real life that consist continuous search for communion with god also with the ways to search god into own. For Merton prayer has one function and that is to bring man to a personal awareness of his union with god but the man will achieve this awareness if he discovers his true self. The awakening of the presence of god within man is really the result of man’s surrender of his being to god by the man entering into the deepest level of himself and then passing through the centre to his true self where he discovers the freedom that his as a son of god where man is no longer conscious of self but having transformed his consciousness now recognizes himself as a self in god. As this prayer can make people more aware than before of the significance and the value of prayer in his life. It is about man’s life is a continuous seeking of god and finding him by sharing and love with other men.
They are citizens who pay taxes that shape, function, and uphold schools; therefore, they have the same equal rights. Us as supporters of prayer in schools, may have less than Christian reasons for their advocacy; reasons like getting elected or re-elected to sever in school office or club office. Prayer still exists in the schools, but it exists quietly and privately in the hearts and minds of the students and staff. Although you have other religions besides Christianity, I believe praying is good for the wellbeing of the school. Allowing praying in school can help everyone prosper academically and spiritually.

Likewise, God wanted to teach me a lesson on persistence and dedication that day. Furthermore, God reminded me that He’ll never leave me or forsake me, and He promises to walk with me through every aspect of life. It may be frightening at times, but as my faith and trust in God has grown, I’ve learned that persistence and dedication pay off. From taking a leap of faith in Nicaragua, I’ve learned that I need to dedicate myself daily to Christ in order to grow in my relationship with Him. Additionally, everyday I reminisce on everything God has taught me and I utilize this wisdom to not only grow closer in my relationship with Him, but also to guide other people to Him.
