This question is often asked, is there really a God, or is there some kind of force that controls our every thought? How about the people who claim they are preaching the word of God. Are they full of baloney? How about this thing call prayer, does it really work?

You get on your knees and bow your head, or some other posture position, and then you begin to speak to the air, claiming there is someone listening to you. Then you wait for a response to whatever you are praying for. It may sound like something no normal person would do. However, do not try to analyze or figure out how prayer works; all you need to know is it works every time, if you do it the right way.

Just think for a moment.

What happens if there really is a God? That would mean that there really is a thing called prayer. That is something to think about, isn’t it? If you are sure there is a God, then be sure that there is prayer, God and prayer are inseparable, and they cannot be separated, just as humans and prayer are link together in a unique way. We just don’t recognize the connection between the two. If we were made in the image of God, don’t you think He could tap into our intellect whenever He wants?

The name God and Jesus Christ are mentioned, most times without the awareness that the person is actually praying. When they call these names, they are actually calling on God because of a need in their lives. Imagine how many times you have hurt a part of your body; and the first word that comes out of your mouth is oh my God. And then when the pain starts to kick in a little more, you utter Jesus Christ. This is not a coincidence or just pure luck that somebody would call on the name of God when they are in pain. Pain is a sign of need, and when there is a need in the body, the body reaches out in the natural way that it was designed to reach, to its familiar source. God creates the human body. When someone calls on the name of the Lord, whether because of just the pain from a physical heart, or something else, it’s a form of prayer, which says I need help.

All prayers are not intensive prayers, it depends on how well you know God, or whether your prayer is going to be answered?

For example, when a baby needs its bottle or its food, he or she calls on the mother first. The reason this occurs is that a baby lives in the mother’s womb for approximately nine months; during that time, the mother and the baby are attached to each other, so in the time of need, the first reaction is to call on somebody that the baby knows, which is the mother. The baby reaches out for its formulary source. A baby can tell who their mother is by just putting that baby next to the mother’s heart.

They way God created humans, all are attached to Him. This is why almost everybody one time or another, say the words God or Jesus Christ without being taught to do so. These words of prayer were part of the human mind from the beginning of creation; they were placed in the brain cells and cannot be removed. It is up to you to use them to your advantage.
