Intercessory Prayer

...Intercessory Prayer HLT 302 Grand Canyon University Gloria Jordan February 2, 2011 After reviewing Jaroff’s article which was about a research study of the effects of intercessory prayer, on woman who wanted to conceive children and who had underwent in-vitro fertilization in order to do so. The study was conducted to see if having the woman prayed for along with the in-vitro fertilization process, would prayer impact the success rate. According to the research some were successful, but when the research was viewed by other researchers the finding were found to be invalid and that the researchers themselves, unqualified to conduct such studies. From the patients point if view their main goal was to have a child, and not being able to do so by natural means opted to undergo in-vitro fertilization, which is a process that may not produce the desires response one hundred percent of the time. Being prayer for did not in any way cause harm to the women who were prayed for, because they were unaware that it was being done. This writer feels that in spite the fact that other researchers found that the study was bogus, the woman who were able to conceive would have welcomed the intervention of prayer if given the choice. In the Bible there are examples in the stories of woman who were barren and prayed to be able to conceive a child, a few of these woman are Hannah, Sarah, Rebecca and Elizabeth. ......

Prayer

...There is much prayerless praying. The attitude and semblance of prayer are in it, but there is no real praying, no projecting of the desires with vigor and in a flame to heaven. The form and show are seen, but the substance and being of prayer are entirely absent. Prayers have been said, the performance gone through, but no real praying has been done. As far as any real benefit is secured, the turning the crank of a praying machine would have done as well. Prayerless prayers are not only a perversion, a waste, a delusion, but they manufacture unbelievers by the score. They get no answers and produce no gracious results. They are vain performances, and others recognize their emptiness and barren results. Men hear of the prodigious benefits secured by prayer, of the matchless good promised in God’s word to prayer, and they mark at once the great gulf between the results promised and results realized…  Prayerless praying lacks the essential element of true praying; it is not based on desire and is devoid of earnestness and faith. Desire burdens the chariot of prayer, and faith drives its sense of need; there is no ardency because there is no vision, strength, or glow of faith. There is no mighty pressure to pray, no holding on to God with the relentless, despairing grasp, “I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.” There is no utter self-abandon, lost in the throes of a desperate, pertinacious, and consuming plea, “Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin; and if not, blot...

Prayer

...Power of Prayer Prayer is the process of communication between man and deity. The deity is referred to as God or the supreme entity of a religion. Prayer can be secretive or shared openly to encompass unity and strength. Prayer is not just for worship, but communicating and strengthening a believer’s relationship with their God. Prayer has been a tool used throughout humanity as the means to communicate with holy beings. Man is instituted with mechanisms in their nature that assist them in reasoning with shortcomings and facing issues that are outside their abilities. Facing a difficult time in life, the loss of a child, or being responsible for inflicting suffering in the strive to survive are all reasons that man can seek a supreme being to explain life. Deep mediation may start as lamaz or quieting the mind to focus energy on the worst problem at hand. After a certain level of focus is reached, man’s nature allows for connection and worship to be offered to a force that cannot be viewed in his natural eye. Becoming enlightened, or removing the current mindset towards life and seeking a different path to resolution, changes the energy that is given to a problem and lightens the emotions that are connected with this issue, until the problem itself is dissolved and the only aspect left is emphasizing the conclusion. A connection with man’s spirit is made, and changes in his environment are seen. Prayer is now a method to try and observe the result of this new avenue of...
