    No prayer in the name. of Jesus is wasted and some pray not yet knowing Jesus and are heard by God…
    It is that faith that pleases God, but His ways(His answers) truly are beyond our understanding…. Our. mortal lives are short, but Eternity (and absolute Truth) is a very, very long time. ?

    and so i pray…. ?

    I think you covered it well…and we will keep praying…

    Michael, i’ve come late in life to the conclusion that when i feel that God doesn’t hear, doesnt care about little old insignificant me and cease to bring things on my heart to the Father, i am like the 2 year old who pouts when things don’t go in a way calculated to please him … or her
    Bible does make it clear that He’s waaay smarter than me, but it has taken me a long time to actualize that He really does know what is going on. ?

  4. Jean says:

    God, the creator of heaven and earth, who reigns providentially, and hidden, over creation, hears everything. However, what he hears outside of Christ, is condemned.

    Only the blood of Christ will deliver wretched man from his body of death, including his prayers and other filthy works. Bless the Lord for his abundant mercies and grace, which are daily given to the children of man in and for the sake of the Lamb of God.

  5. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    #8 could probably use a little explanation. How can Christians follow anti christ? The purpose of any anti Christ is to lead away from Christ.
    To say that Christians can follow anti christ makes no sense. At best, these would be former christians.

    Nicely said… 1 to 10.
    And No. 10 is a doxology for all of us… “I still believe and my faith is strong…not because God sent a book, but because He came Himself and suffered with us and for us…thy kingdom come, thy will be done…as soon as possible, Lord…”

    You’ve taken great care to not provide the name of the pastor who died. May I ask why?

  8. Michael says:

    Because the people who needed to know his name already know it…

  9. Michael says:

    Thank you, Duane…I thought a doxology necessary today…

  10. Steven says:

    Cool. Just curious
    Thx for the answer.

    The Psalms are such a frequent source of comfort in later days.

    Especially when coupled with an audio bible and a walk outside.

    May we all find the Lord’s sweet comfort.

    And to think i used to think david was just having a bad day

    Totally agreed. Excellent point.

    Although I assume there are many nonliturgical churches where the pastor tries
    to focus on the eternal not the temporal.

    But Michael your point stands…when you have something that transcends the
    present, the present becomes of lesser import and it’s much easier to put
    the concerns of the moment in proper perspective…if that makes any sense!

    #4–#4; maturity is, perhaps in my case, better explained by fatigue at trying to explain…

  14. Cash says:

    I believe the wisdom of the mature saint is in ceasing to try to understand and seeking to worship instead…This rings so true with me. The ways of God are unfathomable even by the most spiritual among us. And this amazing inability to understand should, just like you said, inspire us to worship Him who holds the entire universe in His Hand.
