How to pray

O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. (‭Psalms‬ ‭65‬:‭2‬ KJV)

Jesus Christ our Lord and savior loved to pray, how do We know ? Well because the bible says so. Chapter after chapter it mentioned Jesus isolated himself in a mountain to pray. What is prayer ? Well prayer is simply talking to God. I will not go far and say there is a right or wrong way to pray, but there is a format we can imitate from Jesus.

2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 3 Give us day by day our daily bread. 4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. (‭Luke‬ ‭11‬:‭2-4‬ KJV)

We want to acknowledge God, praise and worship him, ask him for his will to be done on the earth, ask God for direction, ask for forgiveness of sins. Now , it does not have to be in this order exactly but this is a good format to each is his own.

9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (‭Luke‬ ‭11‬:‭9-10‬ KJV)

God is waiting to answer our prayers! The bible says He watches over his word to perform it! All we need is faith the size of a mustard seed and whatever we ask in the name of our lord and savior Jesus Christ it will be done. We have no time for doubt God is waiting to hear your prayers. Ask in faith and receive in faith!

-God bless you

it shouldn’t be this hard but when you are not around i feel like im missing something like a bad bruise i can’t stop touching to make sure the pain is real. like every time i try and catch my breath i miss it because every time i try to come to terms with how we are no longer where we once were it saddens me. you can keep tearing at every inch of my soul and i still keep bandaging the wounds and praying you’ll soften the scars with simple sorrys. i still don’t understand how every time you called me a sick name i swear i was chocking up your words in the middle of the night i still haven’t come to terms that after every single thing you lied about, how i am still able to say your name and have pain in my chest that i swear to god i lose my capability to breathe sometimes, i guess we need to learn how to live with bad bruises that hurt even when we don’t press upon them and sometimes i guess we need to be okay with chocking up the thoughts of every single name you called me along with every single lie you would draw upon my heart making it impossible for me to say your name and still not have some kind of unstoppable sadness running through me. ive become good at shielding the pain and covering up the cigarette burns on my thighs, but i could cover up the signs of my pain but only i live inside my mind and it’s taking over my body and i can’t control myself anyone, i miss you and i cannot believe i’d still let you bruise my heart with your lies and crush my self esteem with the way you’d smile through your teeth when you saw me when in reality all that was running through your mind was ways you can destroy me.

it worked.


I know you think you love them but you wouldn’t be crying over the thought of not being with them if you loved them. Love is not about being together, it’s about wanting the one you love to be happy. The pain you feel is your longing, it’s everything that you miss about them, about the person you were when you were with them. The pain you feel is for yourself and no one else.

And everything they say is true, sweetheart, love is eternal, and so is the pain that follows losing your loved one; but lucky for you, you’re not in love.

—  And I will pray for you if you are
But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
—  Jesus Christ
anon prayer request

I hope you’re doing well! Just wanted to quickly ask for prayers (if it’s not too much trouble). My church has faced a lot of opposition   because we offer TLM and Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration (over 20 years!!) and people want to shut us down and force the entire congregation to merge with another church. Thank you and God bless!! xx

Hello Brandon can you pray for one of my close friends ... he has been hanging out with some bad people from his school he has started to go down a bad path... please pray for him in concerned about his health and his spiritual one as well ... I just can't lose him again

I’ll be praying for him, Anon.

You, as your friend, should call him out of the darkness if you can. Even if it means bringing other mutual friends into the picture.

you were a home that i didn’t know long. instead of housing hospitality you’ve now chosen to keep the door shut. i’m missing you to death.
a rich ridden street, the catholic pews a few blocks down. i’m praying to god for health, for wealth, and for you to meet me again.
tighten your lips. i’d never tell a soul about way back when i smoked outside while you stayed in and slept. playing guitars as half-asleep boys.

i keep the memory in the hallow place you carved in my chest. when i first learned to smile. to love. i’m trying to fill it with you again.
i was sugar coated, then you spoiled me rotten. it wasn’t your fault. i was lighting off my own fuse. a cherry bomb, all for you to use.
i suppose you were burnt at the end. maybe i could finally wrap your hands. though i know you’ve ignored the scars now. i’ve charred it all.
i put out the cherry of the cigarette. i stabbed it on my skin, to remind myself for years. i became blue so i could put out the fire.
moonlight was easier from then on. the escape from what ate at me. solace in a place in the ground, windows gleaming. night was sacred.

it’s still raining outside today. and i’m still wondering if that house has it’s old chipped paint. or if they fixed you up without me.
maybe you’re newly coated, with pressure washed concrete, and the color changed as well. if i could, i’d plant asphodel in the front.
you’ll never know what it means. but i’ll always keep the promise that it speaks. that’s all you’ll need to know.

hope its okay to message you, but i really wanna get closer to god. i miss him SOOO much. but i dont know where to start. something in me really wants this.. but im scared if i try again i wont get closer and will give up, again....

it’s perfectly okay to message me, love. :)

not sure where you can start but i always enjoyed the book of John. It just felt like I was there, in a way.

it’s okay to be scared but please realize that losing the energy to have faith does not mean you won’t have energy to pick up where you left off on another day. tho, i do pray that you keep strong in God and follow His path for you. 

Fall seven times, get up eight. And with each renewal may you be stronger.

love always,

@ask-jmads “I love you more than anything in the world. I meant none of that and I pray that you will believe me.”

anonymous asked:

can i ask you to pray for me? i'm honestly just so lonely. i have so few friends, and only one that i can think of who'll look back on their time when they were this age and have me as an integral figure in those memories. i just feel really isolated and unimportant and i need something to make me feel uplifted and like there's some force in the atmosphere coming my way to make me feel like i'm significant.

Oh my god yes of course!!!! *hugs you*

I don't understand why Bts are going to France for the Kcon ... This country is still no safe! Have you seen what's happended a few times ago ??? No I think It wasn't a good idea ... I'll pray for them

You mean the terrorist attacks? We can’t hide in fear forever. No country is ever going to be 100% safe, there’s always going to be a risk. so y'know, yolo
